1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I have not one piece of clothing or accessory that has either brass or gold coloring in its make up. Only nickel, silver or stainless steel for me. Kinda strange now that I think of it.

    Yeah, I didn't have any brass hardware until I got into natural leather, etc. I do agree it's quite hard for brass to go with a conventional black belt, but these ones from Vintage Works (one of Japan's most specialist belt makers) changed my mind... Not for everyone, but I reckon it looks rather nice: [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I think brass buckles make your penis smaller

    So do cheap watches

    So I've been lurking sf and sufu for a little over a year now but just recently did I get a decent budget together and am starting to overhaul my wardrobe. It's starting to get pretty cold in Pittsburgh and I need a winter jacket but I'm having a lot of trouble finding something that I like, will be warm enough and is in my budget. It's particularly hard because I don't really know what kind of jacket is going to be the most versatile with my new wardrobe as I haven't really work things like chunky cardigans and OCBDs on a regular basis in the past. Any suggestions on a warm, versatile and affordable (<$250) coat (no peacoats please)? Oh, and I'm tall and super skinny so nice and slim is a big bonus. Thanks in advance.

    Anyone?

    Any good recommendations for a cardigan with nice details in the 100-200$ range? Thanks!

    How do you guys buy clothes online? I've never really done it before and I'm paranoid that I'm going to get something that doesn't fit. Do you just base it off your measurements and then hope it fits right or what? [​IMG]

    Try them on in the store first then buy online.

    Know your measurements, know your size in other brands, ask questions. How is this so hard?

    Thinking of getting a new belt. I've done a search and I think I'll get one from either Corter, Unlucky or Hollows. Any opinions on their work?

    Take clothes that fit you well (or that fit the way you want them to), measure them, use those measurements as a guideline (remember that there will be variations in everyone's measurements and also variations in how people measure things, ex: some shoulder measurements will be done across the widest point of the back, some front, and some across the top). Alternatively, you could go to a tailor and have them take your measurements for you for a few bucks. And, of course, there's always a slight risk involved in everything, sometimes you'll just have to swallow the price of a mistake (here's looking at you, $50 Tim Hamilton hoodie)

    Honestly they are all at similar price points and you can't really go wrong with one or another. They are all one man operations and deliver a pretty similar high quality product.

    I have a wallet from unlucky and if I was to get a belt I would just get one from unlucky since I'm satisfied with my wallet. I've had the wallet for around 2 years and my only major complaint is that the wallet screwed up the mag strip on some of my cards, but I don't think you will have that problem with a belt.

    Looking for a coat on the wallet-friendly side of $600 to keep me warm during the heart of a NYC winter. Here's the criteria -- decently cut and somewhat dressy, but don't hesitate to suggest anything cool that may be a criterion short. Bear in mind, I don't live in Northern Alberta so I needn't don 3 parkas for my mid-January shorty-prowling jaunts. Feedback much appreciated, Thanks!
