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,

    When I opened the thread I thought it was going to be a "dress like your favorite politician contest".

    Street enough for ya? I heard that patch pocket jackets and two-eyelet shoes are all the rage with the kids when they go "casual". [​IMG]

    I don't know what you are talking about but I may bust out my Sears Roebuck blue jean pants, they are quite comfortable with the everstretch waistband.

    Come on, surely you have opinions about blue jeans? Which are the best jeans? Well, they're not a terribly interesting topic. If you like them, wear them, otherwise don't. Next topic. Nevertheless, I enjoy wearing them. You can get a great jeans from Costco for less than a small steak (and tap water) at Longhorns. For the cost of sixty plus pairs of Costco jeans will get one a pair of Kiton jeans, for instance. I've have found them both to be great jeans. I usually give my dad two pairs of unwashed--hard--Levi jeans for his birthday which often necessitated going to the horse supply store to find his odd size. Recently, he wanted to update my ignorance to know that Levi's makes jeans that are soften and prewashed, and he would much prefer those jeans.

    I would like to see someone try to top this Sears jean pants look:

    I think, although I will let UC answer - that we should spy on the SW&D WAYWRN for "inspiration".
    I have already removed ribs, narrowed my Levi's to a 4" cuff opening, and bought some Rick Owens at C21. Its on bitchas.


    Don't forget your BMX bike and (paint spattered) Fedora for full Williamsburg hipster points

    For this challenge, jeans aren't necessary - but it's definitely not a "business casual" look. So whereas you can dress down a tie, you can't dress down slacks.

    I can't believe I just typed "slacks."

    The toughness of new Toughskins (and the JC Penney's counterparts) was the reason I ditched jeans entirely during a good part of the 80's and substituted them for neon colored OP and Hang Ten cotton pants. Thanks, mom.

    So how is this different from the other challenge from a few weeks again?
