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 the color distorted? I never remember Reagan wearing a glen plaid that was so loud as to
    look almost like a tartan.

    I meant to say Regan was an actor before politics. JFK was never an actor. Sorry about being misunderstanding my last post.

    I dug around a bit and it appears to be correct. Here's another shot from a different source. The year was 1982.

    Here's another picture from 1981.

    say what you will about old Ronnie, the guy knew what looked good on him. I think he also purposely tried to match or complement Maggie's outfits, knowing it would make for more aesthetically pleasing photos.

    He was a perfect 42(I've read) and preferred button flies on his trousers...old school.

    You were right the first time. All presidents are actors.

    Dali looked great before he went overboard with the moustache.

    That picture from Mr. Foxx is Bogart, no?

    Now I see how Woody Allen saw Adrien Brody as Dali . . .

    Hard to tell, but it looks like Dali is wearing saddle shoes and Max Ernst is wearing suede.

    It also looks like Yves Tanguy was busy inventing the mohawk.

    Personal Note:

    I met Salvador Dali on New Years Eve at a Bar on the Upper Eastside of Manhattan
    in the early 1960s. He was wearing evening clothes and a Cape. I was with my future
    wife and friends.

    Wow. Talk about open quarters and a trim hip.

    Bogart sure knew how to wear a hat. This one looks like it's too big for him in the band, yet he still makes it look good.

    thanks fellas. yeah, I see now. Not used seeing the younger Bogart. Great suit. I like the slightly snug 30s fit.

    what I like about the artists photo is the long, unlined collar points that kinda of curl up. and the soft jackets.

    Everything is very soft and drapey in that shot. Looks good.

    Naples, Outside Pizzeria Gorizia (still existent) Vomero Area 1916-1920 circa. Worth noting the short Morning coat with Notch Lapel and multibuttons (also spotted often by Toto in movies) and Bowler Hat

    Hard to believe this is approaching 40 years old.

    ^ thanks, this reassures me that my 3.75" lapels are not, in fact, of '70s proportions :)
