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,

    It was a bit of fun, the point made in the end wasn't that absurd. Someone commented that Rubinacci (a bespoke tailoring house in Naples) is more flexible than other Neapolitan tailors. Meaning, they're more likely to deviate from the house style, whereas other tailoring houses are more likely to give you what they think looks good. Foo and itstillmatt countered that this depends on whether or not you're a short or long term client. If you've been with the company for years, and have ordered a lot, then yes -- they're more likely to deviate from the norm.

    Like with many posts on here, sometimes the message gets caught in a big debate because people perceive the messenger to be a dick.

    There's probably even a blog out there somewhere about how bending your hooker over the kitchen counter while she drinks coffee is the most gentlemanly way to fuck.

    Can I be honest an say what truly offends me is the bad taste of the slicked down shoot. Plastic people fucking in plastic surroundings.

    If it were shot YouPorn-style you'd be cool with it?

    Is there a youporn style, it is mostly a mean to distribute pornography of all origins AFAIK. In other words something could be hand-held camera, girl next door type in some girl's south american basement and another video could be shot at some dentist's house in LA with surgically enhanced bleach-blond girls with french manicures.

    I guess I just mean amateur porn style. FWIW I agree with you about the slicked down shoot being repellent, but it's not all that bothers me about the ad.

    I agree. I find the ad entirely unsexy and unappealing. There is absoluately no viscera in that photoshopped thing. But it still appeals to me, in the same way that this does:

    It's a nice counterpoint to the stifling pseudo-intellectual, neu-liberal culture in which a lot of us live. I would not be unhappy if I never heard the term "cis-gendered" or "trigger warning" in my life. Ugh.

    that's funny, because I just read an article about how Suit Supply is making a big case for reaching out to the transgendered community. for example, both models in the ad fuuma linked were born female. i wasn't expecting it either.

    That really doesn't affect me one way or the other. Live your life the way you want to. But there is no need to subject me to your banal internal dialogue. I swear, some of the conversations I have to endure are like having to listen to a bunch of people recite from a Joan Didion book.

    I'm fine with the gays, but why do they have to be so showy about it?

    lol. I figured that you'd get into this eventually. You misunderstood. I like the showy gays. I'm always telling people to live out loud and fuck the haters. My problem is with the passive-aggressive, preachy, prissy, self-involved people with not enough real problems. The parody that Kyle posted is not that far from the reality.

    Maybe, but that has nothing to do with terms like cisgender (which are actually helpful). That has to do with a specific, insufferable type of person.

    There are some much-needed conversations (at least in some quarters) that would be difficult without the term "cis-gendered"; but nearly every instance of a "trigger warning" (now found in every second pandering Huffington Post article) is a new apotheosis of witless Leftist narcissism, and I say this as a Canadian liberal.

    Does SW&D recognize the make of these glasses or know of a similar model?
