    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.

    Bonjour Monsieur le Douche. Comment ça va?

    If that guy isn't 20, that's just embarrasing. And he doesn't look 20.

    I like it, although personally I'd put some laces in those Chucks.

    The Chucks are too shiny-white to wear in public.

    Other than that, I like the look on him.

    This is part of the reason why men look better in cold weather.

    The purpose of trying to look nonchalant is to look nonchalant, not to look like you're trying to look nonchalant. Right?

    This is the sort of person who gets hit by one car that throws his body into another car.

    No degree of coat tailoring can revive material intended for a dog bed.

    The sneakers don't work, obviously.

    Above that, the colors are nice. What seems to be an unconstructed linen jacket is good-looking. But everything is a bit sloppy.

    QFT. As I passed a bar the other day on my way home from work, a guy exiting stepped out right in front of me. He had on a white polo under a pink polo, both collars popped. The fact that I repressed my immediate urge to "accidentally" shove him is a testament to my upbringing.

    If this guy just dropped the collar and put the laces back in his Chucks, it would work so much better.

    No one is bothered by the T-shirt over button-up shirt look?
