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.

Have no-button polos become extinct?

    I've looked online and in brick & mortar stores to no avail. Are these even made anymore?

    No button polos? what's that when it's at home? AFAIK polo shirts have buttons, that's what makes them polo shirts.

    I think Daniel Craig has worn Sunspel ones in the recent Bond films but I'm not sure where that brand is sold.

    I just noticed them when I was on the site, I don't have them. That being said, Smedley has as good a reputation for cotton knitwear as any company.

    They're made and will likely become more popular this summer.

    Yeah, I think I've seen them there too.

    I prefer their one button polos though (have a stack of them in different summery colours)

    I don't like 2 or more buttons on a polo; can't understand why they're so common.

    These actually were around in the 60's but I see that they're getting popular again.
