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,

    I was on a plane the other day, I looked up and saw a guy get on the plane...big guy. I knew he lifted. I knew he ate oatmeal and egg whites for breakfast. He looked at me. He knew I lifted. He knew I had a protein shake before bed. We didnt say one word to each other,but I knew...and he knew.

    Nothing like subtlety.

    PG Thought of the Week:

    Phatty is in a completely different league from the rest of us in putting in time and effort to share a remarkable variety and depth of photography focused on masculine style. So, we already know that he is stylish, confident in his style, decisive about changes, and has an uncanny eye for revelatory photographs.

    How do we learn from his efforts? I really feel that many of us, including me, could benefit from understanding what's going on better. Many say that they are inspired by Phatty...but there is no convincing evidence that I see that anyone has successfully copied the gist of what he is doing. Contrast this with, say, what how iammatt dresses, which has obvious artifacts among others.

    Let's try to crack this Phatty conundrum. So, for this week, what is he doing to wear the same color family with such success? I think it is because he has a talent for integrating different surface interests and degrees of reflectivity in the fabrics in his ensembles.

    What do you guys think is happening in the photographs above?


    My favorite photo from last week:

    I'll answer this question this way: the pics above are from the last seven days.

    I like the clothes, but am struck by how the emphasis is shifting to interesting locales and images. My way of doing things will soon be archaic, if it's not already.

    As a fellow headless photography subject, I feel for you.

    The number of interesting fit pics is always far fewer than the number of interesting style pics. There, I think, the emulation of Phatty is more discernable.
