    That sounds much more reassuring. Maybe the entire section should be closed off for members with less than XXX posts, if that's possible. That would make the archive more of a benefit for members who contribute compared to the people who come to leech. Similar to the classifieds.

    And just to echo other people's sentiments, this is an awesome addition to the forum.

    Kuugaia, I am not sure this is the right approach. I think that on the contrary, the chance to contribute to the archives will bring some of the lurkers out.

    The garment archives are the best of both worlds.

    1. The images don't need to be followed by an intellectual discussion.
    2. You are not posting images from a consumerist perspective.

    All members of SZ, unite!

    if you thought the addicts picture on mood boards through the world was epic, I predict the SZ logo becoming immortal............

    figured, though trousers in particular tend not to be very photogeneic by themselves, i personally find. maybe its just me. dont want to advocate another waywt either maybe more vintage atelier-esque. though i understand consistency concerns.

    can we change thread titles to include the word "archive" or something to limit confusion with the designer's discussion thread? like Ann Demeulemeester Archive? just for ease of browsing...

    some designers have that retrospective thread but now that seems redundant

    I would not want discussion here, but maybe we can link individual posts into designers and their work.

    I have added a HOW-TO to the rules thread, as well as other information and a format for all the details to include.

    please make sure you include the designer name in the post itself, otherwise its not searchable.

    this is important because, a lot of times people alter garments slight for fit etc, and unless is a significant change in the actual design, i don't think it matters that much..................

    the alternative is maybe to state that the garment was altered slightly

    yes, I was just going to ask the same thing - what about diffusion lines? I think they should have their own category, because with certain lines like Drkshdw and Tricot, there is so much stuff out there. I would also say Junya Watanabe Man should be its own category.

    Anyway, a big thank you to everyone that made this happen and MBD for having the idea...I'm really looking forward to what is to come!

    I don't know what was done to it.
    and i would agree with you that is dramatic,

    im just saying it should be clearer cause I wouldn't wanna post something where just the sleeves have been shorten or the waist taken in for better fit an then that's disqualified because of that..........

    Thank you very much for this new section ! That's an amazing idea, and I love the idea of a collective achievement just for the purpose of sharing and learning.
    I'm sure this is gonna be an amazing ressource in no time.

    I would be very glad to contribute when I'll have time and good light.

    And of course it's not the point, but MBD is right and I'm sure we will be many to search yahoo and ebay like never after browsing the thread !

    Once again, thanks for this forum !

    Yes, all diffusion lines should go under the main designer. Specify that it's Drksdw and you should be good.
