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,

    You are correct, may have something to do with proffessional boxing being banned in Sweden. But yes, we are a small country and have a smaller selection of true talents.

    No. 2 appears to be Clark Gable. He looks great in that pic - better than the Duke of Windsor below him, in my opinion. Gable's full trouser leg just looks better than the Duke's anemic-looking pants. Although he would certainly fit right in today, would'nt he?

    The Duke of Windsor, at the time of the photos, the Prince of Wales, is depicted in the early-mid 1920s, I believe.
    Gable's trousers look like the early mid 1940s when the style was for full trousers.

    That's practically the silhouette favored by Style Forum, except the jacket is
    longer, which I prefer.

    Lets see...

    Threadbearer is 3rd from the left in the navy DB with Urban Comp over his left shoulder.
    Manton in the light gray 4 button with arms akimbo.
    % seated.
    Acridsheep waaay behind Foo, inappropriately wearing Photograys and open necked as usual?
    Spoo to Manton's immediate left in the classic Judas Iscariot pose.

    On further review, I now realize that Spoo is conversing with Señor Corbera. Who else would wear such a light sport coat over dark trousers so well? The shoulders and total absence of divots are dead giveaways.

    He never asked if that un-buttoned button "should always be buttoned?", "can I unbutton it if I need to?", "can I leave it unbuttoned?", or even "is it sprezz?"

    He just needed to pop it to take out his cigarette case or lighter, and so he did.

    He'd probably kick all our asses if he knew the sort of holy war this sort of pic could ensue on here.

    Committing style just by doing it. Awesome.

    ps - jetted pockets, too? Damn!

    Looks like it was designed to be worn as a 6X1 to me.
