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.

    Cheers,

    I've seen them on occasion, e.g., at Louis Boston Luciano Barbera

    What's the purpose? Is it extra movement, pure aesthetic , fad, or what?

    What do people think? It makes the shoulder a little poofy but also lets the arm/shoulder seam be placed higher on the shoulder.

    I'd appreciate views, and thanks in advance.

    the ones I'm thinking of are Barbera from Louis Boston but I wouldn't be surprised if others have them.
