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.

    how are you gonna use it? really as a bandana or putting in your back pocket?
    I keep a bandana tucked discreetly away in my back pocket during spring and summer for wiping off sweat. I walk everywhere I need to go, and do not have the benefit of air conditioning. They've come in handy for other things too.

    I just went from picturing you as a stylish yet classic man about town to a vagrant who beats off into hankys on public transportation.

    i have to agree...but it would be nice to see pics of someone pulling one of these ties off (it doesn't count if you are a train engineer who wears striped overalls)

    Honestly, I do this too. Its good for the summer. I was considering picking up one of these from Context, but their website says Winn Perry in PDX is also going to be a stockist so I just might go down and check them out in person.

    Allow me to disagree with that.

    Workwear in its utilitarian function has never been a trend. What is one is this obsession we see for it today in the dozens of bloggers who now only swear by it, convinced they are above this very trend they are only reflecting (while, interestingly, they were still collecting sneakers a year or two ago). That lifestyle theory/excuse is just bullshit to me to justify a particular taste. Don't get me wrong, I love most of most of those workwear/americana/heritage brands produce, it's the constant justification I see about it that I find most annoying.

    Let's not try to pretend that we're better than that, except for a few members here, we're just as sheepish. I'll be curious to see what you, me and most of us on this forum wear in 2 or 3 years. I have a feeling chambray ties won't be part of our wardrobes anymore though.

    Sorry if that sounds excessive, I just had to say it.

    Of course there's the full-on conductor overalls wearing contingent, which is probably (hopefully) just a fad, but I see workwear/hunting wear as more of a subtle twist on day-to-day dress in the vein of collegiate, nautical, equestrian, military etc. It's something to integrate into an existing (compatible) wardrobe rather than something to adopt whole cloth.

    That said, I will not be buying one of these stupid handkerchiefs. I can already hear my grandfather laughing at me from his grave.

    "I sweat a lot" must be some sort of code for you goons to identify yourselves to each other.
