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.

    Yeah, but if you wore your own tux, you'd outshine the groom, and We Can't Have That, Can We? It's the same reason bridesmaids have to wear those execrably ugly dresses.

    If something has a Japanese care tag, is it reasonable to assume it was made in japan?

    Has anyone ever seen Salvatore Ferragamo Hiking boots? I was shocked when i saw these today.

    Anyone think there is decent value in these?

    Going to vote no. Anytime you see "Paris" on a composition tag, its never a good sign.

    Seriously? The Kanji (?) says "butt"? The other is just the Yamane / Evisu gull, which is why I'm doubtful.
