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.

    you should try the "PM only" method.

    @jdrizzy These look simillar to the jeans i kopped for RTC. really good stuff.
    and as described to Barrel, T.K is the paul smith of japanese fashion. he has been around for a long time, and is perhaps Japan's most acclaimed designer domestically.

    ^^ The quirky mix of CM and SW&D that he really pioneered, is now "The popular style" in Japan. his influence can be seen every time you turn on a television to see the celebrities mimiking this trend that creates no division between the two supposed sides of menswear. - my own fits owe a lot to his design philosophy.

    his impact on men's fashion in popular culture i would say extends further Than Yohji Yamamoto. because Yohji is seen as more "Fashion" orientated. like a concept, where as T.K makes stuff that is worn by the masses, all day, everyday. and in this context, he IS the Paul Smith of Japanese fashion. a hugely infuential, and underrated designer. with a strong following in modern japanese menswear.

    - i would like to think this man (an actual expert) likes my fits, more so than the self proclaimed experts we see on here from time to time. I play by T.K's Rules. [​IMG]
    when in Japan, Dress like the Japanese do. -eh, flying monkey?

    The sort of person who likes redundancy enough to quote the same post, unspoilered, twice?

    I am most definitely not feminine and I used it for a month or so without comment from my co-workers. And if it was an effeminate touch, they most certainly would have mocked me.

    Ok, i'll play............. it looks more like a small bag to put your car keys in. so you don't sit on them, or scratch your phone/wallet.
    not sure if it's a released product, So if you want one to match your shoes/tie/p.s/belt. check online.[​IMG]

    Sadly, looks like no dice. sorry bro.

    Still, no young woman I've ever met wants to show her friends her ring, and then explain "he's still in school", "he's saving for retirement" or whatever.

    While I agree the thought matters, and it matters a lot, to many women, the ring is indicative of how you value her.

    I should also say: Great story Wes. Knowing how hard you worked for it is probably 95% of the value to her.

    Not sure about the safety of giving a dishwasher as an anniversary gift though.

    he's saying you got more chance of dying in your car on the way to the Toronto airport than after you get on the plane.

    I'm somewhere around 2.5M miles flown. I've had some incredibly rough flights. I've been in a jet that emergency landed with an engine on fire. I flew over the hulk of the delta jet that crashed at DFW back in the 80s. I flew into Beaumont TX in a 12 person plane about 20 minutes before they closed the airport for a tropical storm. I flew the first day the airports were open after 9/11 and was in the Ottawa airport the day the shoe bomber was caught.

    Once you can accept that what happens to your airplane is absolutely beyond your control, then you quit worrying so much.
