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.

    Is one considered more formal/higher quality than the other?

    Thanks

    Well, I'm a historian on men's dress, but one would assume that that slash pockets would be more formal. However, the flap pockets are arguably more practical since the flap design protects the items in the pocket better than a slash pocket from the elements.

    Really, I would have thought the exact opposite to be true. But I personally prefer flap pockets for the aforementioned reasons.
