Four Pins, for the most part, was a dumpster fire of stupid, internet-driven slang, 140 characters, run-on sentences with ten "ands" (that's called the Jon Moy special), obscure, nonsensical references to high school and coke dreams about moving to an abandoned town in the west and starting a salvage yard—or something like that. That is to say that a lot of the fashion-related stories weren't really about fashion. Still though, there were more than a few highlights over the past four-ish years. When we took our eyes off the timeline, we actually did some OK work. When the site finally goes dark, everything will be archived on, so don't worry. 

But if you're feeling nostalgic and don't feel like Googling some random keywords to find an old Four Pins story—odds are you probably couldn't find it anyway as our headlines were completely irrelevant to the words in the story—here are a bunch of our best works in one place.
