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.

    Cheers,

    What do you dislike that most other forum members seem to regard highly? I'll start:

    Split-toe shoes.

    I know the EG Dover is a forum favorite. I like the last shape but can't get past the split-toe.

    Dislike may be too strong a word, but I don't get the JL RTW love over say JM Weston.

    Allen Edmunds. I understand there is a great quality/price ratio and you can easily find them on sale and some of the styles are nice but no matter what I will always see them as "old man shoes". Perhaps I dislike them without reasonable cause but thats still how I feel about them.

    We've done this before, but it's still fun.

    Not for me:
    90 percent of Lobbs
    Gaudy, unnatural antiquing (I'm looking at you, Lobb cirrus. Along with Kiton, etc.)
    Ascots, though I don't really think they're that popular here. Unwearable on anyone not eligible for the AARP.
    Clothing that looks too new/slick
    Turtlenecks with suits
    Suspenders, aka braces
    Most wingtip balmorals
    Valextra

    Also don't get the fetish for handwork in RTW shirts and the appeal of certain SF-adored brands, such as Isaia.

    I've warmed to split-toes, though I still don't own any.

    I really dislike gaudy antiquing as well. Have to disagree on the wingtip bals though.

    Double-monks.

    I love double-monks...

    Don't like broguing...

    and brogueing,

    Tan shoes with navy suits.............

    but I really hate tan shoes. In fact, I'd say I pretty much don't like anything lighter than medium brown.

    I don't know if they are popular or not, but I have always hated turtlenecks.
