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.

    I'm a mix. I like the baggy fit, but now companies are making the baggy fit a little too big for my skinny self. I haven't had much experience with slim fit yet, but my next pair of jean will be Levi's slim fit jeans.

    Here's a good scale. I know it depends on the cut and fit but how many inches past your true inseam do you wear? For instance, if you are a 30, do you wear a 32?

    I am a true 32, and I wear a 32. My jeans usually hang at my hips, so there is some bunching nevertheless. However, some of my jeans have longer inseams (the New Standards I am right now have about a 34" inseam, and are perfect at the bottom) or are longer than marked (like my Ralphs, for example.) The only jeans which do not really bunch are my Olas and a pair of Corpus Morphy's, both of which have true inseams of about 31"

    So for a true 32 pair of jeans, does that mean if you sit and put one leg (ankle) over your knee, your ankle/top of shoes are exposed?

    Only my Olas and Morphy's do this, so I usually wear Sk8-His or Chucks (always highcuts) or Nike Blazers with them.

    I eat good on the weekends, so I dress baggy from Monday through Wednesday. The rest of the week I usually wear slim fitted shirts and pants.
