1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    I think they make a bold understatement. A look at me with out shout it. . . . and with all the second looks and comments I get when wearing these you can't miss.

    I can sympathize with you, Sir!

    Disembarking at the airport upon arrival in Minsk, I was immediately besieged by discerning Belarusian women that spied my Burberry polo shirt. My wife immediately demanded that I remove the shirt and give it to her bachelor nephew.

    That was three weeks ago. We haven't seen her nephew since that fateful moment. [​IMG]

    You guys are awfully harsh on the guy.

    If he likes the style, the fit, the feel, and even the logo, so what?

    Looks like something you'd find at the outlet.

    It's really the Prorsum collection that's worth it. The other stuff is for Asian logowhores on an airport dutyfree store binge.


    so,so true!

    I know have four with the Burberry novacheck facing in the opening. I think they make a bold understatement. A look at me with out shout it. Burberry is classic and refined and with all the second looks and comments I get when wearing these you can't miss.

    Understated would seem to mean the absence of "showiness" or slavishness to a label. Under this criteria, I cannot advocate this offering.

    A collague at work just entered the room wearing one. I was shocked. Was probably even faked.

    I thought "trend" and "understated" were fairly mutually exclusive.
