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.

    Messenger bags like the one Beckham has in that photo make him look like a jumped-up paperboy.

    Similar disdain goes for pretty much any "manbag". Most blokes just end up looking like my grandmother. The only manbag I would admit to handling is the one I empty inside my wife every night.

    I'll stick to my coterie of liveried servants hauling my luggage.

    Sports jackets with shorts. It look is too contrived. Too much incongruity. The people wearing sport jackets with shorts look ridiculous.

    Beijing -> D.C. -> HK -> Beijing -> now where?
    short dress pants -- the ones short enough to show off your ankle and socks while walking.
    manpurse -- not talking about messenger bag or bags with shoulder straps, but bulky "designer" bags looks like you are carrying both you and your girlfriend's grooming kits.
    sandals -- I've had my fair share of wearing them (to everywhere) while I was still in school, indeed I didn't care and intented to leave that impression. although I don't do wear them outside my house anymore, but if I see the wearer is likely in college, I'll give him the pass.
    square-toe shoes -- already been covered to death.
    If I can say something about women's trends, I say snow boots (thought not really sure what they are called)-- as fugly as square-toe shoes for men, especially the ones with furry material on top.

    Does "xiaogou"= "puppy" in Chinese?

    Over-priced/hyped hi-top trainers with jeans (casually) tucked in..

    +1 on long ass jeans tucked into shoes or boots, creating "stacking". Vomit.

    Tie Bars
    Skinny Ties
    Collar Bars
    Knit Ties
    Short hemmed pants with cuffs
    Gigantic cuffs
    Dress shoes with no socks

    And, I know it is not a trend but a fashion staple that many of you can't live without...but I feel like a tool with a pocket square. I guess I need to get over that.

    I don't follow any type of trend, just never been a "going with the crowd" person.

    LOL for it to be a trend people outside of SF need to participate.

    I believe I'm one of very few who participate in this forum who wears a collar pin, and i've only met one other person IRL that that wears one.

    How the hell is cuffing or uncuffing your trousers a trend?

    You gotta do one or the other...unless you prefer to roll them up.

    Slim cut trousers. I prefer a more classic cut and find the current vogue for ball-huggers a little off-putting. Sure, it looks good on some gents, but certainly not on me.

    Add the 2" cuffs and yup...
