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,

    That's what I call great 1970s style from Robert Redford and Dustin Hoffman in All The President's Men (1976). BTW, retired soap opera actor Ron Hale (Ryan's Hope, and General Hospital fame) is in it too.

    BTW, I wonder if Carl and Bob still friends today?

    Hoffman looks silly, Redford looks great. Great lapel roll, nice collar roll on the Brooks polo, high waisted trousers.

    I've been working on this on and off in my spare time for a while now - a collection of images from the 1920s, 1930s, and 1940s of some of the more notorious and well-dressed racketeers, gamblers, gangsters, etc. I originally thought it would be a great idea to collect some of the images that I'd seen in various books. Then I started reaching out to authors of various underworld histories for rare photographs, which they were usually very happy to and generous enough to share with me. Then I thought it would be great to add a few essays on some of the more colorful characters of the era. I only recently put the whole thing into decent enough shape that I thought it would be worth printing a draft copy for myself:

    That's what I call style from Dirty Harry himself Clint Eastwood in 1971.

    Anybody remember the original UK Whose Line is it Anyway? with Clive Anderson? He knows style.

    Clive in the later years of the show.

    The late Jonathan Frid as Barnabas on the original Dark Shadows had style!

    Pierce Brosnan in his Remington Steele heyday in the 1980s. Looking sharp and tailored!

    The late veteran English actor Simon MacCorkindale was a stylish actor. He was Manimal!

    I have a belted greatcoat kind of like that, but with Raglan sleeves. It's gray melton from the 80s
    by Invertere.

    BTW, Who is that?

    Arthur Treacher, Bela Lugosi and Ed Sullivan

    I kind of like it that Treacher has his hands in his coat pockets. I liked him on the Merv Griffin show before he made fish and chips.
