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.

    Yes, I am saying that you are wrong, and a whiner.

    Ad hominem attacks are always a great way to discuss a topic.

    We say foo mostly looks good because ... he mostly looks good.

    And I usually agree. And who is "we" - is Manton getting his royal "we" on? This is becoming more awesome with every post.

    we like him and we are not dicks.

    I suppose this makes me a whiner AND a dick. Oh, dear.

    This upsets you a great deal

    Not really. It upsets me a great deal when I have a short position in a shit company and the market disagrees with me. Or if a relative is ill. Otherwise, shit tends to roll of of me.

    enough to follow us around

    So now I'm a whiner, a dick, and a stalker? Seriously, Manton, thank you. I feel evil now!

    and bitch about how biased and cliquish we are.

    Who is in this clique? Do you guys have a gang sign? I'm sorta envious now. I feel left out. *cries to self*

    I don't get it but it's annoying enough that I sometimes respond.

    Ah. OK. Erm...sorry(?)

    perfect size. Not enlarged and producing some good, forceful volume.

    I would like I share that I do in-fact have a giant cowper's gland. My uroloist was baffled. When it was discovered the doctor's curiosities and thorough nature led me to several co-pays an much discomfort.

    Oh yeah, they determined I am in good shape and it is no cause for alarm.

    Look, dude, you are the one saying that me, Nay, foo and others constitute a clique. That's your constant refrain.

    You hate foo and we (Nay and me, since you are apparently confused on this point) don't. You like spitting venom in his face and we don't. You get very pissy when he is praised and we often praise him. You think that whenever we crititicize him our criticism is too soft. It's irresolvable apparently.

    My point is that you constantly bitch and whine every time he is praised and insist that the praise can't be justified or genuinely intended, it always arises from a cliquish circle jerk. I'm saying you are wrong about that. And even if you aren't, your constant whining about it is tiresome and makes you look like a jealous, obsessive little jerk.

    For the record, I think everyone is just jealous of my sweatshirt and sunglasses.

    Manton, I strive to wear at least one thing everyday that you'll find vomit-worthy. [​IMG]

    Comb through every one of my comments ever posted. With the exception of the sweatshirt/Ambrosi pic, I've only had positive things to say about Foo. I asked if he always gets swelled edges - no criticism there. Then I ribbed Nay for calling Foo's pic first class. Perhaps if Foo killed the sunglasses, it would be first class, but the sunglasses strike me as a bit silly - this is just my opinion, and you agreed. Now you're asserting that I have it out for Foo, and that I have it out for you and Nay for complimenting him. Really, you have gone off the deep end. Compose yourself and stop being obssessed with me. It's positively creepy.

    Right, that sure is what's going on here.

    You started all of this and actually up until about three posts ago I thought it was just a regular conversation. When I pointed out that, contra your clique mantra, Nay had actually made the harshest put down of anyone, you had a little mini meltdown.

    So, now that you ask, I do think you are an obsessive stalker prick now. About two hours ago, I didn't. Congratulations.

    I like the sunglasses in the sweatshirt picture. What at those?

    Not a fan of the second pair though, sorry!

    Well, aside from the glasses, which are terrible,...

    actually, they are the best part.

    20s and 30s professionals playing MadMen is ubercostume (not to mention annoying).

    Is it still annoying if the character I most resemble is Peggy?

    Since this thread is now a free for all, someone please help me understand what is "impeccable" about Foo's Sportcoat/flannels photo. To my eye, the jacket looks too tight in the waist, and the shirt collar seems tight. When going no break/large cuff I tend to think the top needs to be relaxed a little to balance things out. It just looks uncomfortable to me...am I the only one?

    These things you see cannot possibly be true. The problem is your eyes. I recommend Lasik.

    I hope this isn't taken the wrong way because I have been honestly really impressed with the seemingly "kinder, gentler" Manton - you have judiciously responded to a number of posts that called out for, shall we say, a harsher response. I also agree that the conversation quoted above is becoming a stalkerish pissing contest (something I'm somewhat familiar with, and occasionally on the wrong end of). Anyway, I do think there's something of a "Neapolitan clique" here that results in willful blindness to some obvious shortcoming. I'm not saying that the commentary on Foo's sweatshirt / pants combo constitutes that, but I have felt in the past that it exists. Bad fits have been excused essentially as "house style."

    The shirt collar and coat both look great to me - not sure why you think they're too tight. I personally prefer a bit more break to the trousers, but his style isn't bad / wrong.

    Is Peggy the chick with the huge breasts (I don't listen to the series, tried the first season and think its not very good)? I'm not much of a retro girls kinda guy (smells like hipster and cooties) but I guess it would be slightly more interesting.

    You're thinking of Joan.

    And so it begins.

    It should be pointed out that trouser break is not a matter of scientific precision, particulary when talking about flannel.

    Yeah, Matt looks stiff and uncomfortable, but I imagine that's just because he's having his picture taken, which also makes me stiff and uncomfortable. The clothing looks exceptionally well-tailored, and while the waist appears very trim, I imagine the coat is actually quite loose and comfortable around his midsection; I say this because while the coat has an hourglass shape, there's little-to-no visible stress at the button, and the coat fits in the small of the back (at least it does in the other pics he's posted before). To me, these are clear giveaways in distinguishing bespoke on a guy with a big drop from RTW waist-winching alterations. The waisted effect is visual more than anything, and achieved by 1) Matt's natural build; 2) slightly extending the shoulder; and 3) beautifully tapering and shaping (through pressing) the garment, the chest especially, in three dimensions. The sleeves are also pretty full, which I find adds a lot of comfort too, especially when the arms are bent or in motion.

    I don't see what you mean about the shirt collar.

    no,

    fwiw, it's tight and on the short side.
