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,

Does every man need a good quality black captoe?

    I can't be down with monks as the default black shoe, especially for interviews and such. Too great a chance they'll be seen as foppish or effete.

    For black casual footwear, I like a chelsea. That can go most places ... but I still wouldn't wear it to a funeral.

    Sometimes there's no replacement for the black bal.

    I think this statement will best sum up my thoughts on this whole thread: Black captoes are like a navy suit, or a charcoal tweed SC, or a light blue broadcloth shirt. Very safe, and no one will fault you for wearing them.
