    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.

    Flipped the cuffs on my jeans from touching my shoe with a slight stack to a good 2 inches of air between cuff and shoe. Wore some old scuffed Jil S's cap toe lace ups in saddle tan. Felt like a bad ass, Florentine style with the rest of my gear. Where are you guys with shorter lengths now that it's gaining popularity ?

    I visited the tailor recently and had him hem some w+h roped pants. He had measured it for a slight break but I asked him to bring it up an additional two inches. So right at the ankle [​IMG]

    I stack or roll em, hemmed jeans look awful.

    2 inches could look fine or bad depending so post pic if you want substantive input.

    I really don't dig that style, makes most people look less like badasses like squares to me but to each his own.

    LOL @ 'squares'. Wearing strides clear of the shoes looks a damn sight sharper than having them dragging on the deck. Late 1960s mods and skinheads from the UK would disagree with you all the way, and there were never a sharper, less 'square' set of dressers, in their own way. Strides hang better when they don't catch on shoes.
