    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.

    Isn't it a costume though? unless you're a fighter pilot from the 40's.

    Just about every modern leather jacket is based off either fighter pilot jackets or biker jackets, so it's not that much of a stretch... I get what he's saying, if it looks beat up it looks like what it is (a cool thrift store find) while if it's new it just looks ridiculous.

    Isn't this one of these unwinnable 'authenticity' vs. 'costume' arguments?

    The only completely undeniable fact is that any leather jacket looks bad with flip-flops... [​IMG]

    Now I understand what you meant when you said you could pull off leather and flip flops.

    You're a douchebag.

    I love how this forum drudges up some idiot with no social skills or taste who thinks they're the shit every once in awhile.
