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.

    Hey DDML! Is it just me, or is that what would happen if you moved Falls Bridge to California? Suddenly cleaner, newer, and well-paved. (And ready to collapse in a massive earthquake at any moment.)

    Rye, I really like that denim jacket.
    *squints* Maybe it's this monitor, but those jeans look really.....white. Is it a really, really, faint pink or what? I just assumed they were white with a bit of sunshine making them look pinkish......
    Whichever, they look good!

    I managed to find a spot were no one can see me. Yes I'm in the industry but I don't get free shit and I'm not whoring Rokara on a daily basis!!...only sometimes when the mood strikes. I didn't hem these so there's some serious stacking going on, which I don't mind.

    I sort of meant that it would be ridiculous for say, someone like me to wear what you do sometimes; not b/c you ever look ridiculous - far from it - but you work in a creative industry and I am an office drone who occasionally goes to dive bars/indie shows on weekends. Make any sense? I also assume you have more contacts/hook-ups/trend and label awareness than many of us plebes...

    I dunno, I'm just busting 'em a little bit...main thrust of the post is that you've got el mejor estilo. [​IMG]

    I never noticed this before, but is it just me, or does DD look a little bit like David Carradine?
    Oh, I suppose they all look the same to you, huh Fok? [​IMG] Also, anyone tempted enough by d_d's black PBJs to buy the unworn 34s I'm selling? [retreats back to B&S] And Sauce was right...the SuFu invasion is totally outta hand* - just when I was working up the courage to buy a camera...[​IMG] *Although the Fus are all on point lately.

    Damn, David Carradine, first time i've been mistaken for a white guy. He really exploits us with his Tai Chi videos. Bruce Lee where were you?!

    Great look Baron. I like the combination of more modern styles with classic aesthetics. It allows you to look really good, and stylish, without looking like you're trying to dress like you're twenty.

    Cheap - those look killer; true size, or down 1? They're almost great enough to outweight the bullsh** Yanks cap - wtf? Where's your FL love, b? [​IMG]

    true to size... i nevert size down except my apc, and those i only sized down one insted of the standard 2.

    about the yanks cap, they didnt have a florida one in my size when i found this... if it cost more than 10$ i wouldnt be wearing it.

    I wouldn't underestimate your knowledge in comparison to people within the industry. Of course there are some supremely talented and knowledgeable people, but there are far more morons deciding what to offer the consumer at large. I'm baffled how some of these people attain certain positions (sucking dong is the most obvious, but probably not the most used method when climbing the fashion ladder), ego massage maybe?, there are a lot of insecure fashionista's, not so much in LA compared to NYC.
    I myself can sometimes become so immersed in my own projects that many trends, brands and items do pass me by often, only to be discovered here and in magazines. I wouldn't say working in the industry elevates me beyond anyone here. Sure I know the protocol, the logistics of producing clothes from pattern to wash process; I like the equality here, anyone regardless of age or occupation brings something to the table.

    Here's a better pic of the shoes. I got these through Franco's in Virginia when Ron Rider was still working there. He's now works directly for Martegani and they still do custom orders. He can be contacted through his blog at http://martegani.wordpress.com/.

    Nah they look like whodini's favorite color. Maybe him and rye should have a jean party where they try on each other's dungarees and swap accounts of shopping escapades while getting their nails painted, both hands and toes.
