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

    Gold!

    Reminds me of the scene between Michael and Don Draper in Mad Men.

    Michael: I feel bad for you
    Don: I don't think about you at all

    Yeah, I think you're really overreacting here, Ethan. By posting photos of yourself on the internet, you open yourself up to positive and negative feedback, like it or not.

    Journeyman's comment re your tie was his opinion, and expressed fairly mildly and jovialy by SF standards. You may not agree with it, but it doesn't warrant that diatribe up there.

    This. Quite a few members here, myself include for the part, have little or nothing to do with other parts of SF.

    The atmosphere here is usually friendly and informative, but occasionally, like a bar at the end of a busy night, it can get a little out of hand and the bouncers need to step in.

    I thought Styleforum was just diatribes these days?

    Usually this thread is one of the few refuges on SF that remains free from such people (with the exception of certain members who shall remain Unnamed). The criticism here is almost always constructive and not mean-spirited.

    The worst we get here is people getting annoyed at the same old questions being asked on a monthly cycle... something we are all guilty of at times.

    Protip: When aggressively telling someone to "lighten the fuck up", remember to take your own advice.

    Try a pair of pink socks.

    That will lighten your soul (or at least your sole).

    Your right there I used to wear of a lot of Gant casual gear about eight years ago, trousers mainly, still have a pair of black lined leather gloves which are going strong but overall the quality has dropped a lot in the past few years most of my casual stuff is from LE or LLB at present.

    Ethan, I apologise if you feel upset or irritated by my comment and I'm sorry that it rubbed you up the wrong way.

    It doesn't really bother me that you've tied your tie with the back in front of the blade, but I do stand by my comment about the contradiction inherent in someone carefully dressing as though they nonchalantly don't care about the way that they dress at all.

    It just seems too studied or forced to me, but I don't expect you to take my opinion to heart in any way, shape or form, as I'm just a guy commenting on the internet! Speaking of which, given that there are plenty of photos of you out there on the internet - and that, dare I say it, your current success is partially due to your talent for photography and blogging, as well as to your knowledge and passion for clothing - I'd hazard a guess that it's pretty common for people to comment on your photographs, for better or for worse.

    With regard to the heavy cotton trousers, I was actually talking about Alan, not about yourself, as Alan posted a pic of himself wearing a pair of 17oz cotton trousers - that's heavier than most denim.



    I'd feel privileged were I able to call Ethan a friend, but I can only describe us as acquaintances as I've only met him in the flesh on a couple of occasions but he kindly stayed in touch with me even though we lived in different cities and he also helped me considerably with clothing, for which I am very grateful.
