1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

The Styleforum Brief: July, 2015

    It’s well and truly wedding season, and our seasoned writers (some of whom are even married) have a few tips on how to succeed at not making a fool of yourself at the ceremony and after - unless that’s your goal, of course, in which case carry on.

    Honorary newlywed Ben P has a host of tips that apply to grooms, groomsmen, and wedding-bound guys in general; David has some choice words on why you should do your best to look nice no matter what the dress code says; and Fok breaks down what, exactly, you should put on your body to prepare it for nuptials (and dancing, and the - hopefully - open bar). More questions? Subscribe to our Official Wedding Questions thread and get the best help the internet has to offer.

    Check our primers (scroll down!) for more than you ever wanted to know about how to attend a wedding (or get hitched) in style - did you know that “wedding ties” are a real - and important - thing? No? You’re welcome. And whatever you do, don’t forget to dance with the children and grandparents.
