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.

    I don't wear any jewelry myself except a watch, but how could you guys say that the following bracelets would look weird on a man: John Hardy: http://www.johnhardy.com/productSear...ts&segment=Men Konstantino: http://www.konstantinotreasures.com/...ions/mens.html (Especially the Hercules collection by Konstantino, holy mother of moly. Hardly anyone is aware of Konstantino.) ... If you can't tell I was inspired by the other bracelet thread. On the right dude, with the right look, I'd venture to say you could create one epic look for yourself, barring of course that you don't overdo it.

    There is absolutely nothing wrong with men waring bracelets - I do - but neither of these look good. I would prefer and recommend metal bracelets for men. A nice silver one for example.

    Isn't there a web forum designed by and for homosexuals that you can post this sort of thing on? Please not here.

    So just making sure I'm understanding this clearly. You're saying inherently a bracelet, no matter what it looks like, it can never be even remotely masculine, ever?

    I would never be so bold. What I am saying is the statistical likelyhood of such an event is so small as to be approximated to zero.

    No, one is vile, the other just foolish.


    Whilst the ones posted look pretty awful I have seen men wear bracelets and look fine. Its been a while since I looked in WAYWN but I think PhatGuido wears bracelets sometimes, and he is generally acknowledged to dress pretty well.

    As others have said - plenty of people can pull them off well (PG / SP). I have a few. Would never dream of wearing anything which isn't leather or beads. I pick up some interesting ones from India whenever I go.

    Each to their own in this respect. It's not like they're anything offensive like a square toe shoe right? :p

    Looks like the sort of thing that would be worn by someone who describes their own style as 'edgy'.
    True, in no way whatsoever are those bracelets conservative in style or trying to be. They're not for most people, but there are a few guys I know who can pull stuff like this off with ease and they are straighter than an arrow (for the dude talking about bracelets being gay). And I do agree that for the most part bracelets can make a guy not exactly look very manly, but my point is that bracelets aren't anymore inherently feminine than any other form of jewelry. And yes, watches are jewelry. Straight men wear earrings, necklaces, watches, and bracelets. Gay men wear earrings, necklaces, watches, and bracelets. It has to do with the style of the item combined with how the item is worn combined with the style of the wearer combined with the look of the person combined with how the person acts combined with a bunch of other factors.

    The bracelets linked to by OP would perhaps be worn by someone into Affliction or Ed Hardy gear. In my opinion bracelets have to be subdued and made out of leather, precious metals or stones only; beads are for kids.

    Straight men, yes. Men who don't want to look like idiots, not so much.

    I'd say it's less about masculinity and more about taste. But this is America. Tacky is not yet a crime.
