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,

    Fok on behalf of the entire Styleforum team

    What is the general rule for much can you take in a pair of trousers without ruining the silhouette?

    In the broadest terms 2-3 inches is the maximum, but it's highly dependant on the cut of the trousers and how much the seat needs to come in. I've had great success with reducing waist size by as much as 4", but I've got a rather large butt and muscular thighs, so the seat only needs to come in 1 - 1 1/2". Seek the opinion of a well qualified tailor - as anything more than the 2-3" may result in the trousers needing to be recut.
