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.

    Cheers,

    1.) Alden Cordovan Shell Boots in Black
    [​IMG]

    2.) Dark Navy 3 piece suit, BoO (for the low cut vest)
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    This + vest.

    3.) White overdye oxford BoO
    [​IMG]

    4.) Levi's 511 cut in RAW
    [​IMG]
    But raw.

    5.) Leather Jacket
    [​IMG]

    6.) Buttero work boots in brown
    [​IMG]

    7.) BoO Wool Crewneck in Burgundy/Wine
    [​IMG]

    8.) CP white lows (or really, any comfortable designer sneakers just for something other than boots)
    [​IMG]

    9.) Nudie Grey Coated Thin Finns
    [​IMG]

    10.) MJK Shawl Sweater
    [​IMG]

    I kind of started to fizzle out around 7. I'm not sure if I really need the last three but they seem like good staples. The 3 piece is both a normal suit, a 3 piece suit, a pair of pants, a vest, and a jacket all together and separately too.

    What a fun thread. I've wanted to start something similar for a bit but now I don't have to.

    1. USN Peacoat--Mine's WW2 issue, great condition, fits like it's tailored. No limit to its applications.
    2. 5EP LDB--I have one wash, which I wasn't stoked about at first but now I can't imagine having them raw since they look so good (a year on) and fit just right.
    3. AA white t-shirt--My job allows me to dress relatively casually, so I need something to put on when I come home that makes it clear I'm not at work anymore. I bought a dozen a year ago and they're perfect.
    4. Stowa Airman--I didn't really read the thread closely but I didn't see anybody mention a watch. I wear mine every day.
    5. Tanner undyed belt--Whatever, so it's the SF uniform.
    6. Unbleached Chucks hi-tops--I've tried variants: low tops, a number of PF flyers. Fact is I've worn them since I was 12 and they're just extremely correct.
    7. LL Bean slippers--The ones that look kinda like boat shoes, but are flannel-lined (maybe discontinued?). I've had these forever and they hold up (rubber soles) and I'm wearing them now. They rule.
    8. J Peterman Counterfeit Mailbag--A pretty new addition but an incredibly useful one. Can fit a book, a machine, and various sundries for the day to day, and I just used it on an overnight business trip with no ill effect. (I've also got the Baseball Glove Wallet, which I love but don't want to burn a line item on.)
    9. Quoddy bluchers--See #5. An aside: the girl hates them. Doesn't matter.
    10. Fabulous Fanny's specs--Between the vintage and the new I don't really feel like going anywhere else for eye wear, and I'm not gonna wear contacts.
