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

    I won't speak for others, but I don't wear a hat indoors.

    I never wear a hat. It takes a certain look to pull it off without looking like you're wearing a costume. Plus when you have hair like mine, you don't need no hat.

    Depending on where you live and work, dressing to impress may lead to crap results. Not everyone lunches with Tom Wolfe.

    No two or three of your shirt, tie and PS should have been purchased as a package deal.

    More seriously, if you wear suits less than five days a week, tan pants are a staple.

    Variety within a category is not inherently good or bad. As such, it's highly overrated.

    If you're a leader or salesperson of some sort, I guess it's okay to look like Don Draper. If you want anyone to believe you're actually getting any work done, some(one)thing should be askew - hair, tie or sleeves.

    Point collars look better on no one. They look acceptable on some.

    Symetrical knots look better on African American televangelists and on no one else.

    Button down collars and ties is nerdy. Might as well wear short sleeves at that point.

    Open the lid of yogurt cups facing away from you when on an airplane.
