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.

    Neither of these things are actually bad if you do them right.

    I think vertical stripes are way more offensive than horizontal stripes.

    I don't see anything wrong with either of those.. The following are worse.

    -socks + sandals
    -socks + shorts

    If you walk by the Jil Sander on Howard St. in NYC, the menswear mannequins right now are dressed in suits, with socks and sandals for footwear. It looks like Euro-tourist attire for the rich and tasteless. [​IMG]

    I don't agree with that one at all. There may be certain shades that don't work together, but I often find brown shoes/boots look great with black jeans. As an example, [​IMG]

    Personally I don't think there is such a thing as a fashion taboo. One thing I've learned on this forum is somewhere/someplace there's someone who can pull off looking good by ignoring all the supposed rules. A taboo is nothing more than a perception conceived by an individual or group. What's taboo to one group or individual can and often is quite acceptable to another.

    Now with that all said and done does not mean that I'm not entitled to think that something looks like shit or is otherwise contrived. It's my opinion and it's just as valid as the next person's.

    I think lower back taboos are really classless.

    That is def not offensive, but I was really aiming for brown dress shoes with black dress pants.

    When I first read the title of the thread, I thought it said "facial tattoos". [​IMG]

    Crane's Country Store has a point, but I'd say graphic/logo tees that have the name of the brand prominently displayed are usually pretty bad.

    Unless, of course, it's a Co-ed Naked tee.
