I've been seeing random broken pic links in general since late last week.

yes. but if you click on the broken link the actual pic will appear. still annoying.

Yeah, I tried that when I first encountered the problem, and got the "Oops. Something went wrong." message. Quitting my browser and relaunching it brought up most of the pics, but not all.

well the broken link pics only work for me if i click on the original. if it shows up in something someone quoted, i can't get anything. still annoying.

* Overuse of gifs (more than one a page)

And to you.

Hey, Noodlers, I have created a 50 thread. 50 pairs of shoes. 50 sport coats. 50 cars. 50 cigars. 50 of something: http://www.styleforum.net/t/411166/i-would-love-to-have-50-of/0_50

I'm working on a list of 50 suits...

Great job, SB! And all for 50 cents?

That old story about Fred Astaire throwing his jackets against the wall to soften them up --- is this a good idea?

Common sense says no. It's a great way to get stains and scratches on your jackets, break some of the stitching or buttons, and make them look like you've worn them for 20 years. Besides, fabrics aren't nearly as heavy as they used to be. It might work for a 25oz heavy tweed, but the contemporary lightweight fabrics won't withstand a beating.

Chances are, I guess, that it may have been something that he did at one time with some specific jacket particularly resistant to the normal breaking-in process, then generalised by rumour as something Astaire always used to do.

 

I have also heard stories of new land owners dragging their brand new Barbour jackets behind their brand new Land Rovers in an attempt to disguise their parvenu status. But then, that may not be true either...

Going back to sleep now.
