That is quite depressing as the solution to this problem would be to delete the archives of MC and start from scratch. (Admittedly, this would solve the 'do a search, noob' problem)
OK, I'm not letting this thread get devoted to a derailment over long since banned members. Both opinions have been noted, I am aware of all sides of that story, move on. Anyone lamenting the loss of that particular member knows exactly where to find him. I tend to agree with Mike on the 'it's all been talked about' issue by the way. I mean, there is only so many times we can talk about the amount of shirt cuff that should protrude...to me, that tends to be why the older guys can be found chatting away in the other boards...cos they are basically over that now. On the whole by the way, I am really encouraged by the discussion level in this thread, so thank you all for your contributions to it.

By the way, what happened to Get Smart?

I think the "it's all been talked about" in terms of MC is on point. When I first started thinking about becoming a little better dressed I did quite a bit of reading frome the insight posters. I soon found my comfort point, in terms of cost to quality, and found I had the knowledge I basically needed. I still make occasional posts in MC, still go in there to look stuff up, but I've basically built the database I needed to dress at the level I find hits my comfort level. I'm willing to bet that I am one of literally hundreds of people that more or less fall into this pot.

So what I'm saying is, it might all have been said, but it's still useful for people just hitting a certain level, sartorially speaking.

I think we could do a better job storing this information though. Rather than just letting these types of threads fall into the background waiting for a noob search, why not showcase them more? There is a lot of valuable information in men's clothing but it's all over the place. An interesting idea would be to have an "Ultimate fit guide" that indexed threads into different topics: suits, jackets, trousers, neckwear, shoes, dress shirts, and so on. It would take some work to mine out the best threads but it might cut down on pointless noob posts and also revitalize some older discussions. Edit: I'm thinking of something like the "Front Page" idea only located exclusively in Men's Clothing.

BTW, the one poaster who seems guaranteed to generate 100 page threads in MC every time is foo. I am not sure what lesson we should draw from that, but it seems worth noting.

IMO. DT and CE should be visible to 18 plus aged people for obvious reasons. Noob thread starts should be moderated for X time or until X posts are made. That steers them to at least add some content in existing threads. Ban the socks and out them in a locked pinned thread. I bet most of the dickheadedness will end. I'm an affiliate and I say what I say under no cover of a sock. Is it always in my best interests? Some say no but I disagree but that's a topic for another day.

I think many regular members, including myself, will be proponents of this.

There's an accepted level of racism that I'm not comfortable with, e.g. the Colin Powell jpg.

it's interesting to note that, in the 3 or 4 days since I started my sock rampage, and for all of the 'ban the socks' cries in this thread and around the board in general, I am still on exactly two reports...total....and they were for the same sock-suspect which turned out to be false.

Every barrier you put into place makes it more likely that the place just withers over time. Personally, I think this is a mistake, but I understand that some people would prefer it that way.

I think the question goes to what is this place trying to be: a bar, a social club, a library, a museum, a country club? Without a clear vision on what we're trying to accomplish (and having the majority buy into that vision), it's hard to point in any particular direction.

On the one hand, I am tempted to at this. On the other hand, I have my own pet hates that others are making an effort to understand, so I feel as though I ought to do likewise.

I disagree that there is any racism behind the Powell jpg. Unless you take the position that any use of that word is ipso facto racist, which I don't. If you posted the same pic and phrased it the way Powell actually would -- "Excuse me, sir, but given the many constraints on my time, I won't be able to read this entire missive" -- it would not be funny. Maybe use that verbage with a picture of Ice Cube and it would work.
