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.

    Im in highschool, so its no where near as much money as some people. but i spend probably two grand a year on clothing.
    It used to be just a ton of hollister and northface.
    And now i invest in pieces that go with general aesthetic that i wish to have.

    Ahhh, I am poor. How much % of your disposable income do you use? Mine is close to 100%, ugh, my allowance is not enough. I skip lunch sometimes to save that $5, hahahaha.

    You could get an after-school job...

    This thread just made me realize how much my wallet has suffered after joining styleforum. My damage has been comparable to some of the big ballers...

    Actually my experience with SF is that I have saved a bunch of money.(I can't believe I am using my wifes logic here but here goes) I recently sold my business and am now beginning an entirely new career where I needed a business wardrobe. By investing the last few weeks on this site

    - I have picked up about 10 suits from members and carefully inspected ebayers for about 1500-2000.(Belvest,St Andrews,2 Zegnas,2 Canalis.HF,BBGF,regular BB). I did pay another 400-500 in tailoring.
    -I did spend some on new shoes but not too crazy, 3 pair of AE's 2 at 115 each from Syms bash. Some SF TRamezzas and Grenson bench ebay under 100 for both. more on the way.
    -I ordered six shirts bespoke from my local tailor.750 4 from Sf member-85
    -I picked up 2 incotex, and 4 zanellas ebay. total-250 total
    -About 4 jackets ebay 300
    -other -300-500

    I am at my 5000 budget way ahead in wardrobe, now if I can only get myself to stop or at least slow down. Thanks for a great site.

    I spent a lot of money in the last year on clothes. The only thing that's directly SF related is recent dry denim purchases. And now since that happened.....

    Bye bye more money!

    5 Gs in shoes in 8 months. About 2 Gs in sundry items.

    When I hit my target weight (probably by Xmas), I'll be buying three or four new suits at the Saks sale in late May. No more retail for me.

    I've easily spent right in the range of the more common posters here. What I am reverting from was most nearly garbage. However, my clothing is following along with my general outlook on things as well as I rethink things. The ride has been very fun and rewarding. I'm hoping to stabilize within the upcoming weeks.

    I can't claim to have spent money after Styleforum enlightenment as I've always had an interest in clothing.

    Worth every single penny, everyone I know is jealous. Money can't buy that, style can.

    So you're bragging to people about the clothes you bought but haven't even worn yet?

    Yes, money bought that.
