    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.

    [​IMG] what did you ask them? "Can I take pics of your horrible shoes? I want to laugh about them with my friends on the internetz."?

    I was wearing my suede wingtips and he said "Don't old men wear those?" I just smiled [​IMG] and asked where he got his shoes. His response with a thick accent:
    "This is the best you can get. Made in Italy. Brighton Beach [Brooklyn,NY] has many stores"

    So I took pictures.

    The one on the right from the barber shop, who's friends with one of workers came in to show off his new Mercedes and his new shoes.

    That's strange - I hear of experiences like that a lot here; yet when I wear 'nice shoes' (and that's by no means common in my surroundings, believe me) very unstylish people often comment positively on them.
    Surprisingly, there is a demand for clothing like this. I couldn't believe my eyes: http://upscalemenswear.com/
    Oh. my. god. My brains explode as I try to understand how people actually can think this looks good.

    You could have said "Yes, that's what men wear when they grow out of fashion..."

    Forty-year-old men trying (very hard) to dress like D-bags - and thinking they are so cool...

    For me there is no greater irk than the skinny fit pants. Especially the ones that go all the way to the ankle.

    Would you like to see them just go down to the knees instead? [​IMG]

    those metal toed shoes are easy enough to get rid of. Just call your local Auto Wreckers, have them bring over the truck with the giant magnet; flip the switch, and up he goes. These trucks can also be very useful to remove loitering teens with metal piercings from donut shops. problem solved. [​IMG]

    Hasn't this been posted before? I definitely remember someone bringing up the Zohan joke in another thread.
