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 think the #1 thing is fit. It has to fit well and not be too tight / too long / too short / too big. If you walk out of the house wearing something you don't feel comfortable in due to how it fits, you'll feel uncomfortable all over and it shows in how you present yourself. If it fits great and you can wear it with ease, that's half the battle of wearing it confidently.

    For me, #2 is "not giving a shit". Not in a frat-boy or Guido flip-cuff club-goer kind of way...just in a "this is what I'm wearing, I made my decision and I'm sticking with it."

    The first time you get a compliment, you're set. I wear a pair of really bright PRL madras pants from Spoo a couple times a year, and when I do (Vegas, Florida etc), invariably I'll get a few "hey nice pants" from the guys and way more "I love your pants!" from the gals.

    I'll echo another member who said to keep it to one piece. Bright pants: go with a solid polo or OCBD in a coordinating solid color. Bright shirt: pick trousers in a coordinating solid color. You don't want to be a clown. Be serious about it though - no sneakers - get some nice neutral loafers / drivers.

    The Wings and Horns are extremely form fitting and you can tell what religion I am... The RRLs are my favorite for now.

    Easily my fave pants! The front metal tab closure is getting sketch so imma have em converted to button...that's how much I like them. One gal at the Golden Nugget roulette table said "those are 'yes' pants".

    First class with a gin & tonic, and Spoo's old pants - hahaha!

    No where near as impressive as last week's Oakley X-Metal XX, but today's haul is a bright start to the week.
