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,

Flusser makes a good book, but crummy clothing?

    I have Alan Flusser's book "Dressing the Man" and it seems like a solid read on the subject. I was surprised to note that every time I come across one of his garments second hand while out thrifting, it is always a poly blend. How can a man write such a strong treatise on manly dressing in the traditional sense and then make plastic clothing? It seems to be two principles at odds with one-another. What am I missing here?

    Flusser makes excellent bespoke clothing, and pays the bills licensing his name to Stein Mart, which embroiders it on occasionally-stylish junk.
