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.

    It is a common operation for dress pant, but what about jeans?

    It's not impossible, but it's not as easy as altering dress pants. You need a tailor with the right heavy-duty sewing machine, and you need to watch out about where the back pockets end up.

    This topic comes up from time to time. Some members have had darts put in above the back pockets with varying success. That's a much easier operation than trying to redo the rear seam.

    Avoid.

    Dress pants are made to be easily altered eg. centre back waistband seam (sometimes), darts.

    Jeans are difficult to alter for waist size. You have a chain stitched waistband to alter and re-stitch, fell seamed yoke/crotch....not worth it IMO.

    It could go pear-shaped, literally, pretty easily.
