Posters can then see who has up- or down-voted the post, and make a judgement for themselves on the meaning/value of the votes.

 

The one exception would be that if the ratio is something like 30:1 negative (ie big enough to overwhelm the ability of any one subgroup to fully influence the vote), then hide the post unless you click to display it.

I like this thread...I have nothing to contribute to it...carry on with the awesomeness.

Yea I think the thumbs up/down for users here would be fraught with peril. I could see it being useful on a math board, but on a style board, it's just a recipe for disaster.

The most shocking thing about this is that Brooks Brothers was apparently able to invent a time machine, travel back to 2008 and have Michael Bastain style this look for them.

God awful. Serious question: who styles these pictures usually and how do they get their jobs? I'm assuming it's always women?

That's god awful. Looks like someone passed out at a Frat party and grabbed whatever he could find when he woke up the next morning before heading out to brunch at a "jackets for gentlemen" establishment.

I like the Facebook comments; it could almost be a selection of SF replies.

 

I think Brooks will struggle to simultaneously attract old codgers and young hipsters. RL manages it through a careful mix of different lines and different price points between the lines (as well as different retail locations/formats). I'm not convinced Brooks can adopt that model successfully but I suppose we shall see...

iirc, that would be his wife.

He's even been right a time or two.

while i agree with you that vigorous debate beats endless one post answer topics, and parades of "ZOMG you are teh best sprezzer evar!!!!" i do understand how some people can feel scared the way certain people state their opinions a fact. you have the knowledge and backbone to argue your point with conviction, and confidence, and the knowledge to back it up, others do not.

now, there is no question i feel the forum is way better off with the type of threads we have now, and the resurgence of a good deal of quality posters, even if there is a measure of preachiness, but i understand why people who are maybe less initiated to SF would be a little afraid, or confused.
