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.

    Ha, you'll get lots of snark for this. Rightfully so. However, I'll answer anyway - not the whole band, but Bryan Ferry always has style, and of course my man Charlie - see avatar.

    Muse.

    Not exceptional but they are rarely sloppy like other rock bands.

    I'm glad you wrote 'sometimes' - he would love to see himself as some kind of sartorial pied piper but he often looks like a car crash.

    +1 for The Small Faces and Charlie Watts.

    Kraftwerk deserve a mention too.

    Thanks for the comments. I watched a documentry on Keith Richards the other day and that guy had some style!

    I quite like Kings Of Leon's look at the mo although the way they use to dress was much cooler.

    Lyle Lovett deserves a mention, his band often performs in tuxes and look nothing like most bands that wear tuxes because they have to (for high-end wedding gigs etc.)

    I also like Yuri da Cunha's style. Here are a few more colorful examples:

    This might be more SF-approved, though:
