1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Gola's have been pretty popular with the mod crowd for many years, nowadays they're really easy to get. i see them all the time at stores and zappos.com has quite a few, as well as a good selection of Asics mexico 66 in different colors

    the Gola's i think look the best are the ones that "Jimmy" wears on his lambretta on the cover for Quadrophenia. apparently they are a 1970's model that is long done and hasnt been reissued

    I've never cared for any pair of Golas I've ever seen in a store.

    A very impressive outfit.  I wish I saw people dressed like you more often...

    I'm looking more eccentric.  

    I'm wearing a vintage beige YSL blazer (pre-licensed), with a cut more slim than slimane.  A baby-blue polo from american apparel, a green wool cardigan from H&M.  And tight charcoal stretchy wool bell-bottoms designed by me.  

    Also a custom-made belt from the street in Berlin and distressed leather shoes from Debut.

    About 26 wearings, maybe? I keep losing the little piece of paper I mark it down on. Wearing in very slowly. Today: Light camel/tan cargo pants from J. Crew. Thick brown leather belt. Converse 'Cliff' leather sneakers in 'brown sugar' (dark tan). White t. Half-zip cotton sweater in 'racing green' from *gasp* Brooks Brothers. Brown leather cuff Fossil watch. Here's a question: What's the next big thing for watches, once the whole leather cuff thing dies down (assuming it hasn't already)?

    Maybe a return to classic 50's/60's styles?

    Parasuco used to make ginormous hip-hop-styled clothing. They've recently undergone some heavy image modification.

    Crappy thing with my speedcats and my sprints is that when walking when its wet my toes get wet where there is not much of a sole.

    It could be argued though that I shouldn't wear them in the wet since they are suede.
