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.

    Clothes are meant to be worn and used, not admired in photographs. There's a fine line between stuffing every single pocket you have full of stuff and being afraid to use any pockets because you might disrupt some lines. I'd rather put a couple things in my pockets than have to carry a bag around everywhere.

Like I said, I usually just hand carry that stuff in a small folio. OK I GUESS I DON'T NEED A DANG MURSE Maybe I just wanted some FLAIR

    I should pull a dieworkwear and get a special rabbit poaching pocket built into a jacket and stick my computer in there.

    Just checked this thread and had 100 unread posts. I'm pretty buzzed and all I have to say is that was an interesting read.

    If you didn't read too much into what Foo said about purple, it won't even be something up for consideration.

    Coxie have you seen Flying Monkey's green and purple checked tweed suit from Dashing Tweeds? It may make a believer out of you!

    Green, purple, brown and orange are some of my favourite colours to combine for F/W getups. There are muted varieties of each colour that won't look garish when worn together.

    Spoo had a nice green jacket with purple plaid that he wore with a purple V-neck. I have shamelessly copied the look several times.

    Styling of the purple socks in the Drake's lookbook are fantastic.

    Green and purple. More of a last shirt that doesn't need to be ironed look than anything else.
