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,

    A fair point. Maybe we can say that today's jeggings represent a return to Renaissance-era tights.

    What are we arguing here? I'd like to be a part of it.

    That feeling when you go to a meeting and everyone there is horrifically dressed, wearing skintight suits and happy socks with hems to the ankle, personalities made of cardboard, but they all are male model level handsome. What a ripoff. They could wear denim overalls and still they would have carte blanche. I guess the gentiluomo archetype was created for times like these, so the non-Adonisian among us can take comfort in having mastered the gentle virtues.

    I'm just going to go eat a pint of ice cream and watch Fred Astaire movies.

    I'd be fine working around people that look like that. You should see the slobs I work with...

    I'm on the edge of my seat waiting for your gonzo report from the trenches.

    I guess that when frat boys grow up, they become happy socks wearers.

    I think you're holding your fellow erotic dancers to too high a standard.

    I was hoping this would involve motor oil soaked bandanas hanging out of back pockets, or at least pants cinched with rope.

    But it has aluminum dispensers with candy for cuties. Eat your heart out, Suzuki.

    I've actually gotten back into EG stuff. Lost interest for a while, but now I like it. Wish Suzuki still did stuff for WWM.

    I know it's not to the taste of people here, but I also recently picked up a Needles Rebuild jacket. It's awesome.

    I have some EG in the mail. No hate from me here. You have to dig past the Bedford jackets and cargo pants, though.

    I like their Bedford, but not on me. I did buy one of their fatigues recently.
