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.

    Golf course wear in the office -- large, billowy polo shirts with sleeves that hang at the elbows; baggy pleated khakis; steel-tipped belt; practice swings during down time.

    White socks.

    Muscular dudes who wear tight clothes -- I'm with Jean Touitou on this one.

    Untucked shirts that hang past the balls in the front and past the butt in the back.

    The Thom Browne look -- A friend of mine tried on my suit once a few years back, and I remember laughing my ass off because it was so small on him. Who knew that he was being fashion forward? I guess after the baggy clothes trend of the 90s, the pendulum has swung to the other extreme.


    What is your definition of "tight"? Who can wear tight clothes? Skinny people? Fat people?

    Sunglasses - inside clubs at night. What's the point?

    Ah, Issey Miyake, the ultimate fragrance of choice of the boy who is about to go on his first-ever date!

    So they can, so they can, keep track of the visions in their eyes?

    Boy, me with my hip cultural references!

    I've seen a few things on campus that made my skin crawl. 1) Crocs, 2) Skin tight pants and I mean pants that show every lump, curve and bump on the area lower than the waist (yes, all of it), 3) Player jerseys outside of a game,4) excessive bling, 5) excessive piercings, 6) most cheapo department store hats, 7) pre-ripped/pre-distressed clothing (if you wanted to wear torn clothing, do it yourself) and 8) Shutter sunglasses. Other than that I pretty much adopt a wear and let wear philosophy.

    RE- tight pants, just like ultra baggy pants you can feel safer knowing that if you blindsided them, they wouldn't be able to catch you.

    Every time a see a girl walking around campus, whether my age or a prospective student's mother on a university tour, wearing a tracksuit, I want to gag.

    Its even better (I mean worse) when the bottoms say Juicy on the bum.

    - Jeans with graphics, especially in the crotch area.
    - Girls' shorts/sweatpants with writing in the ass.

    Whenever I try to read what the writing says, the wearer gives me dirty looks. I hate it. I instinctively read whatever text is within my field of vision, so naturally when people wear clothing with writing in certain places...

    Cheap Monday jeans. Pants should be fitted but neither I nor the world wants to see the outline of your junk. They're simply too tight.
    +1 on many things that have already been listed: crocs, sweatpants, etc.

    The problem is that you're being weaselly and surrepetitious about it. Be the Alpha Male. Be totally blatant and unapologetic about the fact that you're looking at a woman's butt, while broadcasting to all within earshot, "DAAAAAAAMMMMMNNN!"

    The glances thrown back at you will no longer be ones of "Die in a fire, loser", but rather ones of, "I yearn to be ravaged by your man meat!"

    8) Polo shirts and t-shirts worn by guys with toothpicks for arms.

    What are guys with skinny arms supposed to wear in the summer in warm climates when everybody else is wearing t-shirts or polo shirts?
