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,

    Fok on behalf of the entire Styleforum team

    I came from modern man myself. I remember one poster named Josh, who would talk about his arrow dress shirts.
    I remember his polyester ties, and his wishing to appear more conservative; there was something about whether a right or left hair part was more conservative. I wonder if he is on the AAAC forum.

    Anoter ModernMan DP, though I lurked for some time it was ages until I naturalized. I nominate Josh's request for the definition of 'dressing left' and 'dressing right' as the best Josh post ever.

    Regards,
    Huntsman

    I happened to be surfing the GQ forum back in September 2004 and saw a link to this web site. I came here and all I heard about was the "Times article" responsible for the influx of new members. Until today I had never actually even read it [​IMG]

    I completely forgot how I found this forum. It wasn't from any of the sources mentioned so far...

    I am a refugee from the Men's Health forums. I was seeking actual style content, which was sorely lacking after a while over there.

    I found the forum in January 03 courtesy of Steve B and The_Foxx. First I found Steve B's website which linked here, then I noticed that the The_Foxx had posted links to some Anderson & Sheppard tuxedo's I was selling, which caught my attention.

    I discovered Style Forum quite by accident while carrying out a lifelong vendetta against the style-impaired.

    I remember one poster here whose name I forgot, who would talk about his pink Van Hausen dress shirts.


    doughsc or something like that. Said he was austistic which I genuinely believed. Unfortunately some denizens came down pretty hard on him as a troll. It's a shame if we are ever more concerned about being 'had' than our compassion for a fellow.

    I typed 'style forum' into Google. It was just before that article I think (I lurked for a long time before registering).

    That was the path I took here as well, just after the NYT article (which I had not read until now).

    I once again apologize for sounding like a moron in the article. Never say anything that sounds like "I have no idea" to a reporter. What I actually said was that in reference to the discussions of last numbers, I had no idea what the people discussing them were talking about (which is still often true, though I'm picking up some of it).

    All in all I think it had a definite positive impact on the forum.

    I thought that was pretty funny, and assumed it was being said tongue in cheek. I think it comes off just fine.
