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,

    I will nominate The Man Who Fell To Earth

    HELLO! ARE YOU FROM THE PAST? PLEATS ARE BACK.

    Really I think nowadays they add more gravitas to a very nicely made classic suit, on someone who is say over 30.


    Pleats have been showing up more and more on fashiony stuff over the last couple of years. Only a matter of time before they make a comeback here. I have some pleated Henrik Vibskov pants that are sweet. I am under 30.

    I prefer a trouser with a single pleat.

    I don't know a lot about the art of the suit, but I think the guys in the Oceans movies, old and new, give off the pure aura of 'cool' in every scene. I would love to be able to walk around every day in suits like these guys do and not come off like a tool.

    Brad Pitt can't even do it so what are the chances for an 'ordinary' (= non-celeb) person?

    Anyone else a bit put off by McQueen's waistcoat? Cut straight across the hem like Bond's in Thunderball so I guess you fasten the last button but it looks so close to the hem it's in danger of falling off!

    Brad Pitt is a bad example. He seems to be able to look good in just about any old rag.

    +1 McGoohan was legendary as John Drake and sharp dresser and he turned down the Bond role on moral grounds : too much of a womaniser. oooops
