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,

    Ahh, the stuff that lawsuits are made out of. But then again, I practice in this area.

    The guy always seemed like he'd have been a real beast to work for. Maybe I'm wrong but there was something about the look on his face that said he ate employees alive. :confused: Someone tell me I'm wrong.

    He could work for Hair Club for Men. A little bit of a stretch, but he'd still be in the men's style business.

    Pre-Styleforum, I rented the tux for my wedding—long tie and all—from Men's Wearhouse. :embar:

    What a shame. But I'm sure he's going to bounce back from all this and have another company just like it.

    I've been wondering how they would handle the new commercials and got to say I'm somewhat impressed. Watching the commercials about halfway through I think "I should check that place out" and then realize they're talking about Men's Warehouse and think " never mind". My point is the new commercials are you able to spark a slight interest in their store (at least with me) where previously I dismissed it out of hand.

    Holy buckets! I always found Jos A Bank to be at least three steps above Men's Wearhouse.

    My favorite gawker comment so far: "Years ago Boston Magazine in their annual "Best of" issue described Jos. A. Bank as "the place to shop for the middle manager going nowhere.""
