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.

    I'm 6' exactly and about 160-165 lbs... and my chest is about 38" and my waist is like 33". Weird!

    I am pretty close to that, maybe 1/2 an inch shorter with a 40.5 chest. Now I am unsure as to what size would work for me, seeing all this.

    Stelios, you're a good bit taller than me but that's about my chest size. Jay recommended a M.

    My chest is somewhere between a 39 and 40 (haven't measured recently, but I'm in a gaining phase). Medium fits me well. skalogre, I agree with Tom.

    Ah, I see; thanks [​IMG]. Wait, I may be actually between 39 through 40. I am not sure now. Oh well, I am between 38 and 40 in jackets, lol, I *think* I am around 39-40.

    LOL that's kind of what I feel like these days, but I'm somewhere between 40-42 (um, gaining phase, yeah, that's it). 39-40 should fit through the chest like LA Guy's does.

    LOL. No, seriously, I'm a major ectomorph. That 40 is the result of a lot of weight training.

    Hmm. I just read up on this body type stuff - ironically it looks like I am inbetween meso and ectomorph [​IMG] rather irritating but it fits with my typical difficulty in getting things to fit right, I have quite straight/square shoulders but I am *mostly* lean and don't seem to bulk up easily at all. Anyway, I will go with your recommendations, thanks saucemaster/tiger02!

    P.s. At least I am too short to look really lanky [​IMG]

    hm, i like 04101 (though i probably wouldn't wear it cause i have no ties to the 04101), bespoke, and chocolate rain. wish they were in other colors though. the other stuff doesn't do it for me- looks a little too rockstar for me i think.

    Hmmm, I think that Cold Rice and I have very different tastes. I wear Bespoke and 04101 most if layering the tees under something else, but wear Crucifix (the tee shown) or Medusa when worn over, say, a thermal. I like a little bit of the rockstar look (think I picked this up in LA) along with my DIY and military inspired gear.

    Coldrice------your look is sooooo rockstar to me. so weird that you should say that. The leather biker jacket immediately comes to mind.

    See, my style is similar to coldrice's and I don't think I could pull this off. I'm really, really wanting to get one (does anyone have the Nietzsche?) just to support Jay, but the colors are just not me. Again, it's too West-coast rocker, with all the soft browns and oranges and asymmetrical, loud designs. I think I have too much of a dark East-villager look: chic-nerd meets goth-folk with some bohemian added in for good measure. I guess (I just wear what I like)? I'm just wondering if anyone else is having this problem? I'm a guy who can find pieces to wear from any collection, and with these shirts I'm like, "How they hell could I integrate that?"

    I have the Nietzsche shirt, but I usually wear it under a navy or khaki blazer.

    this is a different rockstar look. i abhor the overstyled (asian) rockstar look with large belt buckles, flashy clothing, pointy shoes, etc. i take more from punk rock than rock- i think the styles are very different- yet i'm still in favor of subtley (which punk rock isn't very well known for). so that said, i'm sure these shirts can work in a understated outfit- but when i look at them an overstyled, fake tan, big bleach haired, pointy-shoe-wearing, japanese guy comes to mind (i think i may have been here too long haha).
