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,

    They do make longer gloves that cover well beyond the wrist. Not a real problem. An overcoat is still functional if it has short sleeves. It keeps the body warm. We don't carry that much warmth in our wrist anyway.

    As a guy whose fit is impeccable on basically every piece he posts, I'm inclined to give Choc the benefit of the doubt on this one and say he knows what he's talking about where his own clothes are concerned. But if you guys want longer sleeves on you coats, I bet Choc is willing to let bygones be bygones. ;)

    If it keeps you warm in your climate, it's all good. Fuck the haters.

    No one said that these were too long, just that Choc's weren't too short. I think this is more of a personal preference e.g. full break, little break, or no break on pants.

    THe great thing about being an American is we don't have to give two shits what the prince of England likes or doesn't like.

    I was going to make a refugee joke, but with Bevin as my (outspoken) new governor I may have lost the ability to not be taken seriously when I say something silly in jest.
