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.

    No wife or GF, but some of the other ones think im pretentious for dressing up and uneasy to approach.

    My wife just stares me in utter disbelief and shakes her head when I complain that I am (yet again) out of space in my closet(s).......

    My wife is just thankful that I don't spend the money drinking, clubbing, and whoring (srs).

    (I live in a country with depressingly low standards for husbands)

    Mrs. Luthor's opinions have evolved. First it was, "You dress like an old man," then it was, "You're vain," and now it's, "You certainly look handsome."

    That it looks good, but is ridiculously expensive.

    The first thing my wife said to me was "you look like a dandy" she was 19 then, now she is 27 and we have been married for 5 years. Nowadays she doesn't really talk about it or make a big deal about it and neither do I, to me its just normal and it's not something that defines me.

    She also thinks 5 sportcoats and 10 pairs of dress shoes is an excessive number, which I am more inclined to disagree with than the price points.

    She doesn't realize and should appreciate the extent to which my financial committment to clothing in my current size helps to keep me from gaining weight. It's a pretty significant incentive.

    turn on, specially when wearing suit/SC + tie....but mind blown why a $700+ shoe (Vass) is a great value for the money in StyleFo...
    Hey honey, I like the color of that "green" shoebox. Is that on sale?

    Generally, I've always received positive comments and people I have dated have liked the fact that I will be dressed nicely considering the effort they've put into looking good for a particular date or event. I'd say that acquiring quality casual clothing has further helped with positive reactions.

    She thinks she has to dress up to keep up when we go out. Which is perfectly fine by me.

    There was a time when most people would frown upon (or worse) what most people are wearing today. That time has gone, but the descent on what people consider acceptable continues.

    An example from my experience is a girl who used to wear sweatpants to the office every day (all the men wore suits and women were supposed to wear the equivalent, most did). I am not vocal about my disapproval in public, but a complete lack of standards and negative feedback enables it.

    She doesn't mind as long as I fund our investment accounts and ship expensive purchases to the office while making noise about ebay thrift finds. It also helps that her friends think I am stylish so it's more incentive for her if i dress nice.
