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.

    Pantyhose? Like a thin nylon sock.

    Clags - I vote blue herringbone as well. How wide are you talking when you say wide?

    This seriously gets me fuzzy inside

    I actually already have a blue herringbone, but it's pretty small scale so it looks like self-stripe.

    One thing you don't seem to have is an evening blazer. Something with some shine to it. Not that you can't wear these at night, but they aren't specifically for nighttime. I'd suggest velvet if you want to get something for cooler weather (or just something awesome), and a mohair or silk blend for warmer weather.

    Gross. I definitely will be looking to offset it with something that tastes good.

    So how much is for 5 shot of tequila? But nice tequila. First of all, no white tequila, that shit doesn't work. Second, something like Herradura Reposado. I want Noodals to taste somethin that make hm say: Damn you Betlegeuse! [​IMG]

    It is nice but it is white because it has less age years. When it is "Reposado" first it has more aging process and secondly, and I think most important, is that, it is 100% agave which is the plant from which the Tequila comes from. Sometimes white ones are not 100% from agave and they are going to give you some terrible headaches next morning. [​IMG]

    @Rudals Plus one (if you get stoned, you might as well do it on the dope of your choice).
    Make it a full round for @Claghorn (pls pm your pp to me) and you, though.

    (Slight word of caution, I had borderline abomb poisoning at the end of last year's Oktoberfest. Beer, Scotch, Jaegermeister, Tequila, ... didn't become me...)

    I am reluctant to tell a man how to run his jibs, but tha fuck? After all of the effort to tighten up your game, you're going to commit to buying a suit on short notice from an unknown source? This is unlikely to end well. Also, there's the matter of precedent. You don't tell her what to wear, she doesn't tell you what to wear. You know, like grown-ups.

    Also, she's your fiancée (note the second "e").

    yes, have a good time, but Clags, make sure he can make the most important event of his life up to this point, with a reasonably clear head.

    Rudals, for various reasons, I don't do the alcohol thing, so I hope you will just accept my best wishes in lieu of making you drink more.

    It seems like every comment Giani leaves on styleforum is "elegant colors" or "beautiful colors" or "beautiful and elegant colors."

    There's not much he doesn't like.:D

    Edit: yep, almost robotic: http://www.styleforum.net/forums/posts/by_user/id/156343/page/20

    Wish the jacket posted above had patch pockets instead.
