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.

    If we are talking about fictional non-Italian mobsters, Viggo Mortensen's suits in Eastern Promises were sharp.

    The clothing in Gangster No. 1 was pretty nice.

    Gotti Jr. looks awful, but his attorney looks pretty good.

    His attorney makes more money than he does.

    I've been told that the suits are made by Borrelli, no?

    I don't think Borrelli even made suits back then.

    I don't know much about hats or how they're worn but aren't they supposed to have some kind of flip in the brim. His looks like he just got caught in a rain storm. That or jr just got done practicing for his little vacation upstate[​IMG] which would explain the smile.

    Le Clan des Siciliens (The Sicilian Clan) with Jean Gabin and Alain Delon was on this morning. Really cool 60s style and design, plus a Morricone soundtrack. And some boobs.

    while Pacino from Godfather II is one of the most stylish characters ever put on screen, i've always had a thing for Yakuza style over Italian mafia style myself.

    The suits aren't "canvassed" and don't pinch you in your hips so tight that the button
    sew stretches.

    The pants aren't ball hugging and tight enough. Why would anyone like MOB clothes in SF?

    I've read a cool article a couple years back about custom made suits, yakuza style.. good stuff.

    They are all wearing fairly conservative suits, why no 'gangster' stripes?

    Mostly bankers wear the stripes, hence the understandable confusion.

    Edward G.Robinson appears to be wearing a collar pin.

    True. And is that a pocket square in his vest pocket?

    He liked western belts as well.

    BTW, on EGR's right is Harry Lewis, who founded the Hamburger Hamlet restaurant chain. He used to hold court at the BH store and regale us with all sorts of Hollywood stories, great times.
