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.

    Cheers,

    there is bad taste and there is bad fit, we should be clear what we are voting on. This will come as a shock but, recently, I do not think Moo's taste has been bad, but his fit has (I have not seen his cemetery outfit). KB is another one where it is more the fit than the taste, exotic skin shoes not withstanding. For me, if I were to vote, which I am not, I would look at it from the perspective of who on the list has the least amount, if any, of clothing that I would wear. There are others not on this list that would get my vote before any of those on it.

    I'll be the first to admit that the fit on some things isn't up to SF standards. Nothing is egregiously bad, and eventually it'll work out nicely. Remember, I'm still losing weight and don't want to alter things too early, so the pants in my pic from Sunday are a good bit loose at the thigh - this is an example.

    Oh yes, what a terrible thing to wear to a cemetery. [​IMG]

    And regarding fit... it fits fine. It's not perfect. It's not bespoke or MTM. It's not to your standard. Get over it.

    I like this....I mean I like it a lot.

    What I like most is the way the pocket square picks up the door.

    Foo, you are the instigator in every one of our chats. You always talk shit about my clothes (I don't care how you put it - you're talking shit and you and I both know you wouldn't say shit in "real life"), and I always come back with "I can alter the jacket but you can't alter your height." I'm really good at just plodding away, so as long as you bring the hate, I'll bring the lulz.

    That's what you don't get: I'm not just "talking shit." You've been around here long enough to know that I am nothing if not frank. That you can't understand the difference between talking about someone's clothes on a clothing forum and sad attempts at personal insults continues to baffle me.

    And good god, I hope you aren't confused about the difference between Styleforum and real life.

    I want to like and respect you, and I understand that Moo is a fun kicking-post, but god you're an insufferable dick sometimes.

    There is no different between making fun of someone's height or their clothing: both are personally insulting. What baffles me is the amount of time you spend making fun of other peoples' clothing, while rarely saying anything positive about anything posted in WAYWRN. And yes, Foo, no matter how you twist it 200 posts about a bespoke suit, or constantly picking at tiny details in my fits is a way of making fun of the way something fits. Your agenda as an angry clothing snob is crystal clear. What isn't clear is why you portray yourself as such online when not being like this in "real life". If you're claiming a large variance between your online persona and your real life persona, than you're just a fake dude.

    First of all, I contribute very little to the 'fun' that is made of your clothes. I have, on the other hand, criticized your clothes extensively and in detail. I think that's only appropriate on this sort of forum--I've never been hostile to criticism directed at what I wear.

    Second, the difference between my height and your clothing is threefold: (1) I never claimed not to be short, (2) clothing and taste are as much a matter off choice as birth, and (3) for the last f*cking time, this is a forum for discussing clothes.

    If you press me, I'll respond to this point by point, but I think it's pretty clear what's going on here. You can take comfort in the fact that there are many who agree with your perspective, but I really couldn't care less.

    Criticism is the grown-up version of making fun. I don't need to take comfort in anything, Foo. Try to be more true to yourself and to who you are both here and real life, and I'm sure you'll be far less bitter and awkward.

    To calm this threak the fuck down I'd like to make dishonorable mention of Moo's wife and Mafoos big head and smalltime furniture.

    Making fun of someone as a kid by saying "haha, your pants suck, did your mom get them from Walmart" equates to saying "your suit jacket fits like shit" on the Internet. It's literally the same thing. Some people like to think that because they're older and "more sophisticated" now, their criticism holds value and is important and not simply a jab or stab at someone (aka, a "make fun").

    Your chance to vote for multiples was in the preceding poll that narrowed things down to this one.

    You know, you really need to keep up on things.
