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.

    What about Chinese writing tatoos? They rock [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    If you're Chinese or adept of martial arts...I remember David beckham ,the English intellectual, had a tatoo made in the UK with Cthinese writings ..The guy mispelt it making the all tattoo completely irrelevant...

    Without question, tatoos.

    Completely agree. And piercings too, all that face metal. Silly people.

    Boat shoes are great for sailing, but not as a fashion trend. I also don't buy into the cropped suit trend, skinny ties, faux-hawks, boot-cut jeans and overly embellished clothing.
    How did that get in there?

    Great call! I never understood this trend. Never. It looks odd and affected when the models in GQ wear it, and it looks odd and affected whenever I see this look on the street. The wearer is almost always trying too hard, which inevitably make him a fashion victim.

    If anyone can find a picture where someone actually makes this look work, please post on this thread.

    Ties with leather jackets. Shoes with no socks. Emo hair. &quot;Raw denim&quot; (and paying $300 for it, and wearing it until it stinks, and calling it denim instead of jeans).

    I hate the way people wear scarves now.
    It is NOT acceptable to wear a scarf without an overcoat.


    I totally agree about the summer scarf-it's (awful) fashion and not style.

    Having said that, I wear a scarf all winter long. I may or may not wear a coat, and prefer not wearing a coat if I can get away with it. A good scarf and a good pair of gloves goes a long way toward simple comfort.

    I was unaware of the trendiness of these four items. Hearkening back to the SF hype cycle, I would think that these are backlash to the back lash. [​IMG] Trends I dislike -
    • Waistcoats cut intentionally too short
    • Matching tuxes and colored vests/bridesmaids dresses at weddings
    • Mad Men branding tie ins
    • Barker Black anything
