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.

    Yesterday I was at this bar with two friends and one of them brought this guy that I never met before. As soon as I meet him he looks at my $150 bespoke tie (black Hober grenadine in the rare prometeo weave) and says, you gotta get nicer ties, I can suggest you a company. I wanted to uppercut him. The ties he showed me that were nicer looked like they would have been sold at H&M circa 2005. Then he criticized me for not wearing french cuffs and claimed navy was "out of fashion". He also said my suit was too big (teh drape). If he came on here he would have been banned because everybody would have thought he was a troll. Maybe he was a real life troll?

    What kind of jagoff starts criticizing a man's clothes just after meeting him?

    There's a lot of stupidity there, but the idea that navy is out of fashion is just bizarre.

    People have made comments trying to "help" me before, it is usually regurgitated GQ bullshit. I didn't want to go there, but there have been a number of occasions where I have said, "When you start dressing better than me, maybe I'll take your advice."

    He was just jealous and intimidated by how well you were turned out and decided to compensate by going on the attack.

    I remember the time in Beantown (Boston) when I told you that you needed a dream catcher tie clip to complete your "fit" you got all red and started saying words at a loud volume. (This was before I knew you from the forum it was only in retrospect I realized it was you.)

    I know it's a tired SF trope, but what you guys are talking about it the difference between "fashion" and "style."

    A girl who's been flirting with me over the last couple of the weeks at the dog park, brought her boyfriend today. :plain:

    Some people are real assholes. I am at this cafe and this guy is sitting at a long table and as people sit down he is chatting them up. Just seems like a nice guy, if a bit chatty. This one guy comes in who looks like a lump wearing a hooded sweatshirt (hood on) and starts playing with his computer. The chatty guy starts making conversation and the lump tells him to leave him alone. WTF? Go play on your computer at home!
