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.

    Found out there is a B&Tailor agent near me for MTM, might give it a shot in the coming weeks - heaps of great ideas on their Tumblr page...

    Noodles the grey suit looks good. Stand with your feet closer together

    I said "singlet" in conversation with some non-Australian expats in Shanghai and was met with blank stares. "What's a singlet?" they asked. Now I see that at least some Americans know what a singlet is. Yet other Americans call it a spousebeater (which I assume is a PC-update of its previous widely-known name).

    So who calls this type of garment a singlet, and who calls it a wifebeater, er, a commonlawsignificantotherengagerinmutuallyconsentingor perhapsnotconsentingotheredbutwerealladultsheresexuallyconnotativepractice?

    He vanished. Very odd, really.

    If you say singlet, I think of collegiate / Olympic wrestling clothing. If you said wifebeater, the vast majority of Americans should know what you're talking about: a sleeveless shirt.

    In DC? bnt?
    Yes, the lighter color of the fresco and my stance (legs apart) accentuates my sexy pear shaped body. I will enjoy the suit. But the suit fits differently in comparison to others. I feel like the suits needs to be broken into but what do I know.

    Yep. A singlet is what Alexander Karelin wore. Unless your tank top contains underpants, it's hardly "single" in any sense of the word - it's more a "tankini"

    GET OUT OF MY BRAIN! (And thanks for reminding me of his name...) IIRC, he said early on that he tended to go all in on new hobbies, so my guess is that the menswear hobby has been put aside for something new.

    Noodles that picture looks like it was shot from a table looking upwards? That could definitely be causing the pear shaped distortion

    Take a proper damn picture

    If everyone knows that it's lens distortion, why do we need to belabor the point? Just make the mental correction and move on.
