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 my bag, either. But then, neither is the skin-tight shirt/pastel trou stuff that's ripped right out of GQ. Funny to see some of the trendiest MCers decrying SW&D for following trends.

    By the way, the blue shoes that have been all the rage in MC have trickled down to DSW/Marshalls/etc. How much mileage does that fad have left in it?

    Objectively speaking, there is one look in that bunch that is good. One that might be good or is maybe just ok. And one that is ok. The remaining seven are poor to worse.

    yea there's nothing objective in this post. Except maybe the total count (but I didn't check)

    Where is Reevolving? I was hoping for the voice of reason to have a say in all this. :confused:

    I completely agree with this. I wear tailored suits etc., and decent quality coats and ties at work - partly because I like wearing well-made clothes that fit and partly because it's an ironic nod to how professors perhaps used to dress but no longer do in general. Outside of work, I don't really wear this stuff and like you I have no interest in looking like an Italian playboy or the heir to a New England fortune. I tend to wear much more SW&D types of things and I do think of things more in terms of 'fashion' labels I know I like and which work for me: so Epaulet, Naked and Famous, Gitman as well as quite a few bits and piece I have picked up in Japan over the years from Beams, Pal'las Palace, Sou-Sou and so on, plus a sprinkling of J-Crew here and there. Sometimes I do mix these things up a bit and experiment. In the past that has been rather too ecclectic, hipsterish and not really successful (see the crappy SW&D fits I posted when I first found this forum) but I am rather more careful now and have got rid of the hodge-podge of inappropriate adn ill-fitting stuff I had in both MC and SW&D modes that I had just because it seemed like a bargain at the time. I don't have the dedication to fashion that people like Fuuma and Parker do, but I do really appreciate it, and I continue to try to learn from the way that they and people like them, put things together, as much as I do from Vox, Manton, EFV, Barims and others on the MC side.
