1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Putting part of what I said in bold to make it look like I contradicted myself is kinda stupid. I explain why I think its ridiculous, in fact, you made that explanation bold. His outfit looked great other than the fact that he was obviously trying too hard and left all his buttons undone.

    I understand what you said. I thought your choice of words was odd (ridiculous, trying too damn hard) given that you thought that the only issue you had was the unbuttoned cuffs. That's all.

    What's with all the insults flying in this thread btw (grandpa up there jumped me for no reason, you calling me stupid out of the blue)? WTF is wrong with you guys?

    I kind of like the navy tux stripe. I think it (specifically the color of the stripe) plays well with the dark jacket and light blue oxford? shown. Needless to say, I love the boots.

    There's a video floating around out there in which Gay Talese talks about his wardrobe and shows off a suit he had made with a stripe down the leg. Bizarre affectation, but you gotta love him.

    Thx for the video - it was fascinating. I cant believe those suits from teh 60's and 70's are in such pristine condition. It's a testament to quality garments. Interestingly enough, my neighborhood still holds a passagiata during the summer months, but no one dresses up.... Might have to revive the tradition.

    oh please man. dont even know what that means/supposed to mean. but if you are saying this is a check on who hates/doesnt hate on you, then pls remove me from that camp.

    Are you going to write an essay about this? I'm so interested in all your comments about me. It reminds me of the last time I was calling you a whiner, a hater, and all sorts of good things... which was.. oh yes, never. Again, good to know.
