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.

    We're still talking about this dude? He probably looks better that 90% of his peers. Sure he looks retarded on SF, but hang around long enough and he'll either get it right or look like a well dressed steelworker/lumberjack in raw denim.

    That said, I agree with this quote: "You're 16 and you wanna dress like a Miami retiree? WTF. Just google Ramones and get a pair of jeans, some white keds, a couple tees and a leather jacket and wear that everyday." :slayer:

    I am not sure why people are saying shorts make people look stupid. I live in Atlanta right now and we have heat index of 110 with high humidity. I still wear jeans and chinos, but most of my time is spent in shorts.

    Not all people, you just need to be skinny or athletic in your lower half to pull them off though. Nobody wants a porker showing skin.

    He looks better than maybe 30-40% of his peers. Have some faith in the younger generation.

    Hes not a porker by any means. But I see kids that dress like him all the time at school and to be honest it looks really tryhard. when your sub 19, you can put on anything and if it fits and your not ugly, it will look good, the trouble is when they concentrate on the type of cloths and not on the actual cloths.
    the thought process looks kinda like this: "i wanna dress better" without any further thought, the average person equates with "dressing up"
    this is particularly evident on the few kids i see that wear too big blazers everywhere they go. Its not natural looking, and they look awkward and uncomfortable in their own cloths.

    it doesnt look good, it looks tryhard.

    They don't fit well. And I'm not a fan of the orange shorts. I would say try to stick to pants, either chinos or a nice jean if you want to look nicer. I agree with tom Ford when it comes to shorts: Only on the beach or the Tennis courts.

    Agree. Your look right now is not good, and certainly not better than average. Right not you are doing an "average" look and not doing it very well, since the pieces don't fit that great, and wearing those long untucked shirts is screwing up your proportions and not flattering your body type. I don't foresee any compliments from girls with this look. If you want to look better than most kids you'll ditch the shorts and concentrate on well-fitted plain t-shirt, canvas sneakers, and raw denim jeans (Gap makes some pretty cheap decent raw denim, right?). You'll fit in with any social group with this, and it will look good without distracting from your personality. For polos or t-shirts, make sure the sleeves stop half-way up your biceps instead of going all the way down to your elbow, and they also shouldn't extend too far past your beltline. To stand out, do some research and get a cool looking jacket and watch. If it's hot out, get a pair of cotton pants instead of shorts.
