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.

    Acne Mic Ridgid: $200
    Barney's COOP black chelseas: $265
    Banana Republic fitted white t: $16.50
    J. Crew charcoal merino v-neck: $59
    Theory black blazer: $595

    I still need some sort of black belt, which I'm guessing would weigh in at about $150, bringing my total to about $1,286. I'd probably throw in a pair of Prada sunglasses, seeing as in LA sunglasses don't require sunlight.

    I saw him on an HBO special honoring him recently. He was wearing a black suit, a silver shirt, and a shiny silver tie (Regis Philbin-esque). Pass your own judgments on whether that means he has "a better handle on things nowadays".

    I like those Fryes, but the 2" heel is a bit much.

    The 10% discount is no longer offered. They do "Context" dollars instead now - codes are emailed to you every other month or so once you sign up.

    [​IMG] velvet vest by j. peterman (they actually just stopped carrying this, but hey it's a fantasy scenario anyways) $120 custom-fit flannel by polo $90 yukon wool cape coat by filson $275 LGC belt with harness stitching, $45 dry bones slim jeans $260 and since i already have a pair of fryes and a pair of red wings, i figured i might as well go for the indy boots, $300 which is $1090 altogether, enough leftover to have the coat and vest taken in since they probably run big, and to get an altea scarf to top it off

    I just got those boots, and I must admit, it's weird to think to myself, I'm wearing like $600 right now, and that's just below the waist.

    honestly, i don't wear expensive jeans, and i'm really set for boots, but if i could afford to indulge i think those two would likely be it. the dry bones are just incredible in every respect, especially the fit, and the indy boots have probably some of the most unique styling i've seen.

    My most expensive pair of jeans right now is my APCs, but I just dropped $200 on some amazing RRL chinos. I'm planning on not washing them, and see what kind of gorgeous wear I can come up with.

    Think of how far that money could have gone when spent on cheap booze and hookers. Tsk tsk.
