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,

    "The color is a light blue wash – some may say “stonewashed” if you even remember that phrase from the 80s. The style is high-waisted, sitting well above the hips, and veering dangerously close to a guy’s ribcage. Perhaps worst of all, Dad Jeans billow out around the waist, ostensibly in the name of “comfort” or a “relaxed” fit, though looking at them makes me feel anything but."

    Avoid DJS or "Dad Jean Syndrome."

    Thanks all for the feedback. I have several shades of gray flannels and one pair of APC NS, plus incotex khakis in a darker shade (British khaki) so it sounds like I'll have plenty of options if I decide to get it. Much appreciated.

    Notorious, what is SR?

    How many, exactly? 50?

    How many overcoats do you guys have? I only have a couple, but would like to possibly get one commissioned, though probably not before this winter hits. What type of fabric do you use for a cold climate facing snow? I take public transport to work so I'm outside more than just house to car to office to car to house (though I think that would be preferred as I hate winter).

    For the flannels, I have six pairs, a very light gray, two medium gray, one darker gray, one charcoal, one very dark blue.

    I do not have an overcoat yet.

    Sorry, I was making a bad joke about the book.

    On a serious note, they're staple pants. I honestly don't have any flannels and it's a serious hole in my closet. I own lined worsted which are great for early fall and all of spring, but I need some better flannels. I got rid of my last pair (that wore out) last fall.

    :drool:

    I usually just make paella with chorizo, or avocado toast. I may need to start making this. Say, today, for lunch.

    I have a dark green flannel sport coat that I love for autumn. I find it surprisingly versatile, as I'm very happy with how it looks with jeans, chinos, or my favourite dark brown cords.

    There's an Ethiopian joint near my house, but sad to say, I've never been. I think I'm mostly hesitant to try it, as I haven't the foggiest clue as to what to order, or what the food is even in general.

    Lot of stews and stew-type dishes. I quite like it. But don't be surprised if there are no utensils.

    D'oh, thanks, should have been able to figure that one out.



    It sounds like a win-win, chirizo, and the green sport coat.
