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.

    That first picture belongs in the "creepy sartorial images" thread... it is deeply disturbing in ways I cannot explain.

    For the well-to-do psychiatric patient . . . it's a bespoke straight-jacket. The sleeves cross in front and are tied in back.

    This was actually up in B&S for a while. There are actually way weirder Thom Browne items, if you check his fashion shows.

    Runway piece. The sleeves were shown tied behind the back, sort of like a straight jacket.

    This is the kind of 'art' that is only horrible and depressing in a museum, but horrible, depressing, and funny when worn on a living human.

    Duh, isn't it obvious, sleeve garter manufacturers are getting more aggressive and attempting to reenter the market they have been out of for the last 120 years. http://www.gentlemansemporium.com/store/001224.php
