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.

    Stealth beast is when one wears brands that are recognizable to us board members but not to the outside world (no obvious branding) i.e Loopwheeler, EG, PBJ, etc...First coined by DDML, i believe. It's very similar the stealth wealth.

    Hypebeasting is a Niketalk term, where everything you wear is recognizable and known to be rare and name brand or expensive or all the above. The louder obnoxious younger brother of Stealth beast.

    These terms don't just apply to denimheads.

    Stripebeast - pinstripe suit + striped shirt (bonus points if the tie has stripes)

    Gripebeast - somebody who's head is so high in the bloody clouds that they are oblivious to individuals' socio-economic condition, tastes and preferences for comfort vs. style vs. affordability that they complain about everybody else who doesn't dress the same way they do, or can't afford what they are wearing (see: Ask A Gay Man).

    ^ someone here coined that term to describe wearing brands that are regarded with hatred on fashion boards that prominently feature the letters S and F; the term seems to be applied to those persons that wear the hated brands well (e.g. kronik)
