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.

    How would it look retarded if you can never see it as I am wearing it under a shirt with a tie? It serves a purpose as it is comfortable.

    If it cant be seen, then i retract my statement. But even when one cant see it, more often than not, you can see the outline of the wife beater under the shirt and I think this still looks retarded.

    It's for the guys with dark chest hair and white skin. Also to cover the nips.

    It's pretty nasty to see nips/chest hair through a white shirt.

    I wear white v-necks under my shirts in all seasons because I'm always hot and they protect your shirts.

    That makes some sense to me. i never thought about it like that.
    But on the other hand....if one's chest hair and nips can be seen through a shirt, maybe its the shirt that's too sheer??

    I have less issues with v-neck t shirts. It does serve a function of protecting your shirts from under arm sweat. But wife beaters serve no purpose what so ever (at lease in my humble opinion).

    No I have not. I did wear t shirts a couple times in the past and i did not like the add'l layer/bulk that it added. It felt restrictive to me.

    And wife beaters...I have always held a negative view of them since the only people I ever see wearing them are down river white trash and caldeans.

    By your down river and Chaldean comment I assume your are from metro Detroit. Most likely from one of the north or west suburbs.

    I recommend trying them before you comment further on their usefulness. I wear them because I do not like the bulk of a regular t-shirt. Think of it like a body sock.

    [​IMG] [​IMG] Good call on the metro Det! I live in Ann Arbor...but work in Southfield.

    And yes I've heard people say that it's like a body sock. The tshirts I've worn in the past were fairly fitting as well. I just feel like anything under a button up shirt..or even polo shirts for that matter, was just too restrictive, at least for me.
