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,

    Maharlika no way someone would wear that unless they are dressing up as a pirate to a halloween party or something :S

    Looks more like some sort of catwalk clothing

    1) "Original" khakis worn at the armpit. The 40's are over.
    2) The Business Casual Dork Outfit: Pleated Khakis + Blue OCBD + Rubber Sole Shoes
    3) Tight clothes worn by fat guys
    4) Sports watches worn with dress clothes. Save your lunch money and buy yourself a dress watch.
    5) That stupid forced half-tuck thing to show off your belt buckle
    6) "Relaxed" (unless you have to)
    7) Boat shoes.
    8) Polo shirts and t-shirts worn by guys with toothpicks for arms.
    9) Ecco, Birkenstock, Mephisto, Rockport, or any other comfort shoe unless your feet are retarded or you are German.
    10) Chucks. Yes, they're classic. Yes, they're hip. But they still make you look like a fucking clown.
    11) Athletic apparel worn by people who don't exercise
    12) Fedoras and that whole fantasy subculture
    13) Sweaters worn over one's shoulders and tied at the neck. In Europe, it might be stylish. In America, it's Eurotrash.
    14) Bluetooth mobile phone earpieces. Having an animated conversion with your imaginary friend while waiting in the line at Starbucks impresses no one. Take that damned thing off.
    15) That new supersize Polo logo for the visually/mentally impaired
    16) Company ID badges worn away from work. You already look like a dork wearing that Dork Outfit. Don't go over the top.
    17) Wayfarers. They jumped the shark when Tom Cruise wore them.
    18) Leather flight jackets. They jumped the shark when Tom Cruise wore them.
    19) Undershirts visible at the neck under open-collared shirts. Unless you are a Marine in uniform or a Mormon, no.
    20) Watches worn over the shirt cuff, ties worn as belts, working coat sleeve buttons left undone. It's all a cry for help.

    Really? Leather jackets have jumped the shark?

    I'm gonna take some inspiration from this thread and wear all those things at the same time.

    Few more:

    Women wearing bright pink tracksuits, (especially if they have obviously never worked out)
    Speedos (I dont want to see your cock)
    White shirts that are going yellow at the main sweat areas. (Had a maths teacher that did this, ew)
    Wearing things that spin around your neck. (I don't care how expensive it is)
    Wearing clocks around your neck (I'm looking at you Flavor Flav)

    And of course, a style sin:
    Money belts.

    Do you mean fanny packs? Because actual money belts are great for smuggling diamonds.. or so I've been told.

    I meant the "look, I have a black, plastic beer gut" type of money belts. The really obvious ones that people wear on holiday to store pasports when they have a perfectly usable pocket.

    More like unusually skinny arms poking out of a short-sleeved shirt draw attention to themselves and can make a man look like a boy. Play up the good and play down the bad. Better to wear something else or perform some resistance exercise to reduce that effect.

    One night a Samoan (I think) guy came into the yacht club. He was about seven feet tall and at least 400 pounds -- he was enormous! I wanted to ask where he got his duds but I was too scared!

    Ironic t-shirts
    stripped shirts with jeans and nice shoes
    faux hawks
    flip flops in bars
    dress shirts that don't fit so they puff out of the pants like an atom bomb
    seeing another person with my shirt, I've had to throw out 3 shirts over the years because of this
    women that wear too much makeup, like I cant see that gunk on your face

    All these pet peeves are BS anyway because it all helps in making well dressed people look even better so I say let em be.

    Another thing is why do people flock over Hollister, American Eagle, A&F and the likes?

    Ive seen the clothes and all it seems to be regular clothes with the brand on the front. How does that possibly make someone look hotter or more appealing. Is the fit really good or something?

    Kids see other kids wearing it and want to emulate. Older guys wearing it probably aren't at a point in life where it's necessary to care about your clothes.
