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 two should become involved with a good non-profit or two. It would make you better people. "Give back" and all that.

    I am involved in two actually. I might do a little advertising on Style Forum for some causes actually. Been kicking around the idea.

    But still, fuck you.

    Oh, and by the way, I give back twice a month under the column that reads, "Taxes Paid YTD".

    A woman in my organization dresses like a Brooks Bros. model. This must be what love feels like.

    Brooks Brothers is a shell of what it once was. A douchey, waspy shell. They have a store on Palmer Square in Princeton and can't sell shit. IN PRINCETON!

    Brooks brothers gets the job done for me in terms of dress shirts, but I only shop at the end of the year for the 50% discount. Otherwise they aren't worth the price. I'm pretty sure they raised their prices recently too.

    I get the ESF and take them to my tailor.

    Non-wrinkle ftw.

    Yeah, no dice on the non-wrinkle. I had a couple of non-wrinkle BB shirts a few years back and vowed never again.

    Also, they fell apart disturbingly quickly. Not sure why.

    I've had no issues on the quality front with my bb shirts.

    They're actually quite sturdy, IMO. Then again, I don't own very expensive dress shirts so I have nothing to really compare them to. No complaints from me.

    Yeah BB shirts are pretty much the only thing I go for these days. Vintage Brooks is where it's at. Today I wore my BB camel topcoat, probably from the 80s. Baller.

    BB was really mad at the Palmer Square association because they thought they would sell stuff. It's funny because these are grown ass business people and I could have told them that they wouldn't get their money's worth in that spot.
