    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.

    That's a very broad question. This forum is as of yet quite small, and it wouldn't take much work to go through the pages and take note of the various sites mentioned - there have been at least a few. I doubt you'll find precisely what you like as at first glance I can tell you that the more frequent posters do not wear those kinds of shirts.

    In any case you can certainly find names and websites for lots of other things that we deem "cool." Good luck and welcome to the forum.

    Whose definition of 'cool' are you using? Webster's Handy College Dictionary or something? Try the OED. It's better researched.

    AHAHAHA [​IMG] That is hilarious. I would have to agree with you, as well.

    My eyes, my eyes. Seriously, as well as the sites mentioned, you can get this crap at, say kleptomaniac.com, Atlasclothing.com, or guyshop.com. I would strongly recommend that you do not do so though. This look is best described as "Tacky gay clubber". If that is what you are going for, by all means. But in my opinion, only the last example is even remotely wearable. The first example looks particularly bad. Please, please, do not buy something like that.

    I guess this would be essential wear if you plan to work as a hairdresser and your name is Armand (no disrespect to truly trendy hairdressers around the world).

    You can cut that stuff into strips for toilet paper, in a pinch.

    Watch it buddy. Armand is actually a black ops undercover dude deep undercover with Hollywood's much spoken of "Gay Maffia" and is as skilled in jiujitsu as Steven Segal. So watch yourself. He likes his ribbed black shirt with swirls.

    This stuff is too tame.

    If you want more clothing like this and far far more outlandish stuff, you must come to China. Here the young men have no fear.

    There is stuff exactly like in the pictures, but also leopard print overcoats, red fur collared tee-shirts, super pointy shoes made of reflective plastic, and red and white houndstooth bell-bottom suits.

    All made of fabrics that dare not speak their name at this forum and with brands like "Jon Paul Gaultier" or "Big Boss" or just "Versace".

    Most people in China deny the existence of homosexuality and our strict rules of taste are not obeyed there, so you are just one of the young dudes when you dress in this stuff.

    It makes International Male look like Turnbull and Asser, except it is in a much slimmer cut than either of those or anything you can find in the States.

    So if you are interested in starry night print shoes, a rainbow feather boa, or - perhaps more palatable - looking like you walked right off the Dior Homme runway, come to Shanghai and I'll show you the right shops.

    Hey, I used to do Northern Shaolin. And you're right, actually Segal does aikijitsu, not aikido, which is aikijitsu for the kinder, gentler martial artist, and has a philosophy of incapacitating an opponent without harming him, as opposed to aikijitsu, which is pretty much the same philosophy except that it is not inadvisable to break as many bones and tear as many muscles as possible *before* incapacitating him.

    Oh, the post with the shirt pictures is a joke.

    Aikijitsu has the philosophy of incapacitating only opponents who happen to be movie stunt-men who aren't trying to defend themselves, or, if they do fight back, pass out and wet yourself.

    That was a hilarious story. Was it Benny the Jet who took down Segal (who, as well as expanding rapidly around the midsection, has a reputation for treating stuntmen very poorly)? I don't remember the exact details of that little incident.

    That being said, Steven Segal, as well as having about 8 inches and 100 pounds on me in addition to a lot more training, does claim to be a Lama (nearly on the same level as the Dalai Lama). And I don't mess with holy men.
