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

    Just re-watched this masterpiece the other day. Fantastically stylish wardrobe. The hats are a nice touch, as well. I found it amusing at one point when he complains about losing "my Florsheim".

    if i recall correctly, jack nicholson's character (can't even remember his name) is meant to be something of a dandy, even for his time. i believe the screenplay describes him as the type of guy who has his shoes shined everyday and his hair trimmed once a week.

    J.J. (or Jake) Gittes.

    Those were the good old days when Florsheim still made decent shoes.

    I love when John Huston's character constantly mispronounces it. Hilarious.
