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,

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

    -socks + shorts


    I don't see anything wrong with this. Socks are to keep your shoes and boots from stank.

    Prominent branding and logos on anything, e.g. Abercrombie, Nike, D&G, Polo, etc. They should be paying us for their advertising instead of paying a premium for it, paying for the name.

    Sandals, ever.
    So what footwear do you suggest wearing on the hot black sand of the beaches in Hawaii?
    front tucked; back untucked
    That's what's called the way to drunk look. That's 3 AM style around most gin mills. LOL.

    Yep. Not to mention athletes foot really sucks. If you want to look like a carpenter in the Summer it's boots with socks, shorts and an untucked tee with an unbuttoned flannel on the cool morning days. Construction workers got the whole workwear thing down pat.
    Fucking monograms
    I don't know about this one. I suppose it all depends on the circle of people you hang with or want to hang with. Mehhhh i can take it or leave it.
    Harem pants. That all depends on what gender is wearing them and in what context. Just to poke fun... fat people in skinny jeans short people in nice designer clothing (nothing will ever look good on short people, sorry).
    O'Rly? Are we talking male or female? Both genders? I know plenty of short people from both sexes that look very good and well put together and they wear designer clothes.

    B B B....But what about the brand whores? What will they ever do without clothes that have their favorite logo prominently displayed for all to see? I can hear them crying of the horror of it all.

    I think lower back taboos are really classless.

    STFU. I love tramp stamps, especially yours, Natan.

    For clothing, yes,

    For bags/accessories, I disagree, nothing looks better than aged monograms Vuitton briefcases.

    "Matrix" leather jackets. You know, the black, very long variety. Sorry, in real life you just look like a sex offender in those. T-shirts with some unfunny, tired thing on it like "I'm with stupid" or whatever. Denim jackets. Only maybe 1% of men can pull it off without looking lame. Strangely they look much better on women. Running shoes when you're not doing sports and even then you could just get something that doesn't look like shit. Exhibit A (of the shitty variety): [​IMG]

    No, you should NEVER wear that kind of running shoe unless you're actually runing, but serious runner gives a shit how fugly his shoes are.

    Wearing sport clothing, if you're not playing sports. I have seen socks and sandals work (probably, on a runway), but, for the majority of the time, they don't work! T-shirts, etc, with shitty, fraying logos/text splattered across the front! Buying clothes that say D&G, on the front, to make a statement. Then everything is individual. I nit-pick when I see something that I don't like/doesn't work, but that is personal preference, I suppose. I think this 'grunge', Rick Owens fad doesn't work 90% of the time, and hope the shitty trend dies! [​IMG]
