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.

    Dimples are not CBD.

    I cannot remember ever seeing him wear a belt. I've seen Sander wear one once.

    I think dimples are irrelevant to CBD. In my mind, they don't go one way or the other. They are the Morrissey of CBD elements.

    I'm sure Manton has expounded on the topic somewhere at some point.

    I can say I have no idea what the Morrissey reference means, but I quite like dimples. Whether it is necessary or not, I cannot say, but it "feels" right in my book

    I'm pretty sure Manton was taking the piss with that line about dimples not being CBD. But it's hard to tell.

    When it comes to CBD...

    No dimple = close the deal, get the promotion
    dimple = get fired, humiliated for dimpling

    He was certainly taking the piss. But at the same time I think there was a serious sub-text.

    Dimples are most definitely not CBD. Or at least, not UCBD. The latter is about conformity, pure and simple. Anything that could possibly draw attention to the clothes is verboten. No pocket square. No dimple. No broguing. No patterns. Just plain blocks in sombre colours, combined with a clean-shaven face and the most conservative haircut possible.

    Ghastly, when you think about it.

    Great birthday kit, @upr_crust and naturally: herzlichen Glückwunsch zum Geburtstag!

    Not a 100% sold on the beard, but imho these are your best fitting pants, @Koala-T ! They´re slimming down your legs quite noticeably without broadening your hips - maybe these should be the reference for any future pants operations...

    What he said ;-)

    Anyhow gentlemen, it is a pleasure to be back from the cave and lurking around in these lands. I delightedly chose the red brick wall to feature as background today...

    Yes, I'm always wearing braces, since they're more comfortable and trousers drape better with braces. I do only wear belts with jeans.

    As an exception, I had some bistecca all fiorentina yesterday.
