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 weep for the future. Behold:

    So do we surrender to the sweats-wearing masses on the deck of the SS Chubstain or retreat to the mountains with our Filson outerwear to fight on?

    On the other hand, perhaps this means we've achieved critical mass. First flip-flops in the White House and now this. Perhaps the pendulum will swing back the other way and by 2015 we'll once again be wearing dinner jackets to, well, dinner.

    The war is over. We're like the last holdouts stranded on some Pacific Island waiting for the invasion. We're the Quantrill's Raiders of clothing.

    Somewhere offshore, someone's Commander-in-Chief is standing on the deck of an aircraft carrier in Pyjamma-jeans, underneath a "mission accomplished" sign.

    I predict a >50% conversion ratio for anyone watching that wrapped in the supreme comfort of their snuggie.

    I just don't understand this idea of comfort. What the hell is everyone out there wearing? Chainmail?

    There's not a single thing in my closet that's "uncomfortable." I have zero desire to wear sweats when I am not working out.

    This woman's review is hilarious. She even has a pajama blazer.

    Funny at first, then sad.

    I'm picturing a lot of scented candles in her house, a yellowed Cathy cartoon on her refrigerator, a bookshelf stocked with titles like "30 days to a flatter tummy" and "Unlock the goddess within."

    Thanks for posting this. This woman is adorable and remarkably good natured despite getting ripped off. From what she's saying, aside from the fact that there are no clasps, the pants bleed and ruin anything else in the washer with them; that they stretch so bad while wearing them that they would fall off in public and that they are a magnet for cat hair, they are otherwise perfect!

    Yet she continues to wear them.

    I like how she takes the moral high road when someone said they pick up cat hair ("get a lint roller dude"), all the while, wearing pajama jeans. You know you've hit rock bottom when someone in pajama jeans thinks you're too lazy.

    Hilarious? I didn't laugh once. I kind of started to cry at how sad it is.

    Preach on brother. Comical how many people at my office who think dress clothes are uncomfortable because they only know dress clothes from Kohls.

    Indeed. Especially since that girl is cute, and would probably be smoking hot if she weren't wearing pajama jeans and a fleece blazer.
