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.

    Is that like thee Johnny Carson? - from The Tonight Show? So celebs having their names on clothing is nothing new then? I know we had that "Kenny Rogers" thing on the first page of this threak.

    I read somewhere that JC had his own clothes line. That could be it. I know I've seen it in thrift stores.

    Since when does Heritage imply 60% cotton and 40% polyester? (And this is the second time I've seen this. The last one was Heritage Twill).

    And this fabric was so thin that it was on the other end of the spectrum from broadcloth.

    TBH I don't think "Heritage" has much meaning when it comes to apparel. Just a marketing buzzword to appeal to hipsters. I'm sure one of worse abusers of "Heritage" has to be Ralph Lauren, which is frequently used on their overpriced made in China stuff.

    "Made in/Fabrique au Hong Kong" has some heritage about it doesn't it? :D

    Does it play a tune? I can't have a festive tie if it doesn't play music.

    Actually that would have been perfect back in February, Year of the Snake.

    What's that one to the right, the blue and white? Looks like someone had a bad day with the correction fluid.

    Dry hands are a product of flipping through hundreds of items of clothing + hand sanitizer.

    But your concern for my dermatological condition is duly noted.

    I think this is legit, but thought I'd check with the experts.

    That's a bit off isn't? Usually at least they can manage to spell POLO correctly. I'm sure there's a KIRF that has "Polio Ralph Lauren" on it somewhere. .

    Where do these clothes come from I wonder. Dolce & Gabenna, it doesn't take a genius to see it's fake.
