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,

    The thing of it is, 99.9997% of the population won't be able to spot the "problem" with an orphan.

    Generally speaking, a really easy way to identify an orphan is to think "hmmmm, do I have a pair of pants that could be paired with this to make a good outfit?" and if the answer is "no", you are looking at an orphan.

    Fuck that, ask anything you like broseph.

    Also, see Catside's response for a serious reply, it's solid.

    Generally, if it's a solid blue, don't worry too much if it's an "orphan" if you like it enough and it fits; slap brass buttons on (salvaged from another cheap jacket) and you're good to go.

    Shells are something that I just cannot seem to find. I really don't understand it, for the life of me. I've found basically every major maker, untold Savile Row pieces, the ancient, the weird, the rare, and the fun....

    ...but I never find shells. I have found exactly 2 pair of shells in at least as many years. It's not like I don't find shoes; I've found plenty of great shoe finds (though none from the super elite makes), including several exotics. But just never shell. Thankfully, 1 of the 2 pair I did find fit me exactly and get a helluvalotta use. It really trips me out when people find several pair, or even find more than a pair or two ever.

    My neck of the woods needs to up its shell game.

    I'd let this sleeping dog lie! He obviously isn't pleased with these simple questions you're posting, so I'm pretty sure he's not going to be impressed that you are 7% in.
