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.

    Not sure how SF would affect one's ability to be engaged in conversations (unless you are checking SF all the time when talking to her, which is just a bad idea), but I can see the other points.

    That was a one time gift after we got married (purse) and another one for her b-day (wallet).
    I put a stop to the Ethan Allen furniture...since we bought everything we need for now.
    She now shops at H&M and IKEA. [​IMG]

    I suspect that fixing this one would take care of the rest...

    I now just go into bathroom at home and just sit there for about 30 minutes and tell her that I have a long bowl movement.
    And I am constantly on SF at work. I have an entire monitor dedicated to just SF. [​IMG]

    You can address most of these things. Remember, one of the things about buying more classically styled things is that you're not jumping between things due to fashion trends. Additionally, this is not a race. You can acquire things over time.

    Also dude, start running or going to the gym or something if you don't already. Clothes are a fun hobby, but if that's all you obsess over, then you have too much time on your hands!

    The burn. I feelz it.

    Tune in for our next exciting episode of Noodles epic hemorrhoids adventures!

    Yuk! I did that for couple weeks and I told her this is a complete waste of time and we should do something more productive and engaging. So we started going out more and became more active.

    A big +1. Limiting your SF time to only when you are at work might do wonders for these issues.

    And when she gets suspicious enough about these bathroom excursions and checks the browser history on your phone, she will see you were looking at pictures of guys while locked in there for 30 minutes. I see no way this could get misconstrued or end badly for you. None whatsoever.

    So I was dreaming of the day when I finish college and stsrt a career and thinking about this Formosa. How does the $140 of tailoring credit work? The 18.9 shoulder on the 50r would be perfect, but the 36 waist would have to come in a bit to a 34/35.
    (again, college student, so I am not anywhere near spending almost 2k on a suit yet.)

    Tailoring credit just gets deducted from the price at checkout.

    Plus the SF discount if you put in the everchanging code...oops ^he beat me to it.

    And I have to say that they have great customer service. They take time to explain stuff to dumb blockheads like me. [​IMG]

    I am a similar dumb block head that asks about a thousand questions before making a purchase.

    Uh, what? 1) If your spouse is checking your browsing history, you have bigger problems than StyFo. 2) Who doesn't have a passcode on his phone?
