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.

    It depends on the pants. If these have a natural high rise then just wearing them lower won't work, it'll just make it looser in the seat and look funny.

    It does depend on the pants. The pants of Sander clearly have a lower rise. If Citan just wears his pants lower, it will also look odd.
    It also depend on your body proportions. I agree that the rise of Citan his pants look a bit high, but this also depends on his proportions. It might look just as odd with lower rise pants. And, some people wear their pants ridiculously low, that looks even worse than Citan his pants.
    My belt is between my elbow and my wrist bone by the way, and it looks just fine. Wearing pants that are closer to my wrist bone, wouldn't look right. It all depends on your body proportions...

    I see it's a lost cause.

    I agree that Citan his pants don't look good. But just wearing these lower wouldn't help. He would have to buy other pants, that have a lower rise. That might actually look a lot better, but wearing his current ones lower will look just as bad.

    Those are low-rise pants worn higher than they should be, they look like they're wedged up his crotch.

    You might be right. I'm sorry I didn't look so closely at his crotch.

    I agree with GDL they are pulled up too high. I wore them lower when i went out again today and it looks better. I just need to get them hemmed and it will look fine.

    And geez people, how much lower of a rise do you want me to get? These are the same EP rivet chinos people are going gaga over. I don't have that different of a body than anyone else on this forum. I have longer legs than most I guess but I am not going to wear hip huggers like a teenage girl...

    and yea doc, it is smurfy haha. I am a big fan of blue though, but maybe not blue in shirt and pants.

    These trousers are not too high, IMO, (where is your belly button? If there's less than a one inch gap between it and the trousers, too high! gdl203 just doesn't understand proportion, apparently), but they need to be hemmed, and an extra button needs, to be opened on that shirt! That is all...

    I don't think they are necessarily too high. It may just be that he has a bit of a high waist.

    Can you please stop giving people advice. You have no idea what you're talking about.

    I seem to generate much controversy unintentionally. I apologize for that and my smurf homer pants.

    I wore them lower tonight on a date with a white, tan, and blue madras shirt, white braided belt, and white bucks. She loved them, I didn't look dorky high waisted, and I think the rivet chinos are amazing in their quality. I will wash them, hem them, and post them again. Thanks for the feedback guys. I started rebuilding my wardrobe with business clothing first, which I am only now getting the hang of. I just started to rebuild my casual wardrobe so it will take some time as well.

    But yeah, didn't mean to cause so much drama. Thanks everyone for the feedback, I didn't even realize I was wearing them high so yeah.

    Cannot be unseen. I used to like the french blue rivets too!


    This sentence did not end where I thought it was going.

    And another vote here to lower the pants some.
