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.

    Just another sounding board thread, but might be useful for some. I figure this can be about specific pieces you wish to acquire, or more general goals.

    My sartorial acquisition goals of 2012:
    Clean out the closet. Gotta keep it minimal. I've got ~40 pairs of (cheap) shoes I need to donate/trash/sell, 15 or so shirts, and a stack of pants before I pick up anything else.
    10 MTM shirts - basic OCBDs for work
    4 misc shirts - weekend/evening beaters, probably J Crew sales rack shit
    Replace current chinos (dockers) with 2-3 Epaulet Rivets. Can't wait to see what WvG shows up with this year, either.
    Add 2 pair of trousers (probably Epaulet Rudy)

    black workboots - "Grail" for me would be something like Alden Black Cordo Jump boots with commando sole, or a plaintoe Indy, but Red Wing Beckman GT would be a decent stand-in.
    I'm seriously tempted to pick up the Wolverine 721LTD, as well.
    Dressy Wingtip boot of some sort. Haven't hashed this one out thoroughly in my head, but I plan to try and get something MTO from LSBH. Need to check the Epaulet X Carmina thread to see how that's moving along.

    MTM leather motorcycle jacket

    This year I plan to tackle.. knitwear for the winter. I still have yet to find good knitwear that fits me well and have been "making do" with cheapie Merona merino v-necks from a few years back, H&M sweaters and a J Crew cardigan. The SNS Herning stuff looks amazing, but without being able to try them on, I'm hesitant to play the cop/return game. Another goal I have is to keep supporting smaller, less mass-produced labels when possible because I am a fucking hipster.

    I've pretty much ordered everything I wanted from S/S collections that will be on its way soon, there's three items I'd like to get still:


    Kiryuyrik Drape Vest/Cloak/Whatever


    Julius T-Shirt


    Buttero Distressed Boots (hopefully will still be in stock when I go to NYC next month)

    Other than that, I'm looking forward to seeing what my favourite brand Kiryuyrik has in store for AW12. Would like to get some kind of heavy wool coat and another leather, something like this perhaps:


    Need to get a new wallet chain, and a wallet chain ... I like this one, hoping it will go on sale:


    Also want to get some new jewelry, but no specifics there yet.

    Sorry if this is too many pictures, but I think it's appropriate for a visual hobby.


    Other than things I want to get, I need to leave a lot behind. My taste changed suddenly last year and now I have a lot of items I can't really bear the site of -- need to finish cataloguing them and sending them to Japan to be sold.

    layer hawaiians under some shit this summer. reasoning is good looking prints / buttons - shitty fit in arms/ torso = decent streetwear.

    More black mousseline coats, more jabots, more shorts+tights combo, distinguished but nonchalant, maybe a hat for that quirky
