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 clicked this thread hoping you posted a fit.

    Disappointing.


    Carry on with the chatter...


    I moved and don't have mirror at the present. But when I do get one it won't be fragmented like the last time, for better or worse.

    They have flat rivets at front and back pockets and concealed coin pocket.
    Love these jeans it's just a damn shame I can't find a more suitable place to store my Blackberry and wallet. Back pocket looks like I'm hiding a colostomy bag.

    [​IMG] hidden picture click thing semi interesting shoulder detail and collar area. i don't know. I can't tell if it's lame or not. [​IMG] Yes. The sandwich was amazing. An italian panini from The Fresh Market. Fresh Spinach, cappicola, fresh mozzerella, red onions, roasted red peppers, tomatoes, and genoa salami. My mouth is still recovering. I really like the look of the hat, sauce, and i normally wouldn't but the tank top/scarf look is pretty interesting. I'm still afraid of tank tops, maybe i should be brave one of these days. Razuel: I think in time you'll see how people here have varying styles. Some are similar, some are very different, but in general there are some people here who have their own unique style. I don't think it's fair to judge everything by whether you'd wear it or not because that's really not fair as far as what this board is about (fashion). Sauce, pg2g, jpgm, braid, most of berlin's stuff, la guy and brian sd all have a nice style that is there own and is also very wearable for pretty much all people. There are also guys like Ryegb, Get Smart, So Cal, Chris, SuperBobo, and some others here and on sufu, who have their own style and do it very well but it's not something i could personally pull off. They're different styles and not as universal, but they're good in their own ways. That last little list are of guys who have been doing their style for awhile now and it suits them very well. I don't think knee jerk reactions to their admittedantly different styles is really fair. It takes an open mind to accept criticism and influence from multiple sources(not just your favorites) in order to keep trying to define yourself. I still look at those guys to try to subtley influence myself even though it'd be really easy to just straight up copy sauce's looks or something. Honest Forum, while not my cup a tea, would actually help. It would probably serve you well to go between both sites as you seem to want to strattle the line between fashionable and college hip(not in a snobby way).Cheers to everyone though as i'm a lot happier with my clothes, style and confidence from having been a member here the last 8-10 months.

    I didn't knock his style to be a jerk, he made a jackass comment to me so I was a little irked. Immature, yes, but it wasn't some random 'i don't like your style' post. Anyways, I think Rye enjoyed it moreso than being hurt. He's an artist though; he should know how to give constructive criticism.

    I'm not saying you or anyone else is being a jerk. I just remember when i first started looking on the sight, i had quicker reactions to styles different than what i was going through so i was trying to relate. Shit's gonna be tough for you until you're more comfortable with yourself and style here, which is the only reason i said that. I felt pretty similarly to you when i first joined, but i didn't post as much about trying to fix it. I was pretty invisbile on the site for the first few months until i was able to gather my bearings by lurking and browsing through a bunch of different threads and try on some clothes that weren't necessarily forum ready, but were cheap alternatives until i could hone my style somewhat. Now i post regularly as i'm more confident. It's all good though.


    Sauce, my girlfriend is still on the fence about styleforum and sufu. She likes that i'm dressing better but she also is irritated because it made her realize that her outfits weren't great either. She now feels like she has to keep up with me and still doesn't really understand the whole looking at guy's fits and stuff as much. She sees how it's helpful but still finds it kinda weird. It's hard to argue with her though. Seeing your and other people's AEs, PSs and other shoes really make me want to invest in a decent pair of non-sneakers though.

    Trust me, I still cringe every time I see that Rye or GS have posted a fit, because I know that one day, those damn Paul Smiths are going to look so good that I'll black out, then come to my senses holding my credit card and staring at an order confirmation screen.

    that's how i do most of my e-shopping

    in meatspace, i have much more self-control (mainly because i don't tend to go out to brick and mortar stores drunk or altered)

    Quoted for truth. Tone is everything.

    I see a lot of guys wearing all black around, poorly. There are so many types of black. Some with more blues, some more magentas, some more yellows. Together, it looks a mess. Jeans are the same. Anyone who says that they need just one pair of dark jeans either 1)Doesn't wear jeans often or 2)Is colorblind. For example:

    APCs have a lot of red in them. Unless they are brand new, or have been brine washed, they tend to look like shit with most blacks. Tones are way off. But I see people wearing them with black all the time. 5EP are more versatile because they are pretty well balanced. They have a greencast than makes them wearable with more somber tones, but have a fair bit of yellow and red, some warm colors, especially if the jeans are worn with a warm colored belt, something tobacco rather than british tan, say. And Kicking Mules have a lot of brown in them, and that is accentuated by the stitching. They look like shit with black, generally, but I see this all the time anyway. They call for a blue or an earth tone. If you wear jeans often, you need about 3 pairs of jeans unless the rest of your wardrobe is dominated by either cool or warm tones.


    Put the pipe down.

    Next time can you post a better picture of the sandwich? And what polo are you wearing?

    ^^^ Hard to stay quiet on such great fits. Felt up to the "paint it black" challenge and mixed it with New Gear Mondays (delayed): [​IMG][​IMG] APC Random thrift RB Varvatos I really like the details on this APC jacket. Riri, slim waist, nice lining, and sweet pockets. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    First of all, this multi-quote feature is GREAT!

    Being a new member, I really don't think I have much authority with regards to critiquing other people's fits, but here goes.. I'll try to get my own WAYWT up later this week.

    Disclaimer: Please try to view these comments as constructive criticism rather than simply bashing fits. [​IMG]

    While I find the color palette to be aesthetically pleasing, I feel that you would be better off with a slimmer cut. You seem to have a similar body shape as I do and any cuts that reduce the bulkiness of your frame are always helpful.

    I found your last fit to be killer though. Perhaps it has to do with the jacket? How does this fit look with the jacket unbuttoned? At the moment I feel you look a tad stuffy.

    My monitor at work is dark so I can't really make out the various textures and subtle color differences in your all black outfit, which is unfortunate because I feel that's what makes or breaks an all black outfit. In any case, the jeans fit great and the cuffs work well with your frame, your belt rocks, and the color of your jeans works well with the jacket. Awesome.

    I agree that slimming down the jacket would make for a nicer silhouette. I'll probably wait for a couple more uses to deciding whether to take it to the tailor, as I just received this today. Next pic will be with it open and I'll let you be the judge. Thanks for the constructive criticism!

    FWIW, I think that jacket fits perfectly, timbo. Nice piece.

    Sauce, the (new?) hat fits your style well. Where is this "cheap hat store" you speak of? As for the other fit, I believe strongly in sleeves.
