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 can't believe this thread has gone so long and no one's posted any of Connery's Bond suits. I was sure it was a given but am happy to leave Steed in the spotlight.

    You could have used that^^^ real estate to post them. Still can [​IMG]

    Classic British style to me is Prince Charles, James Bond, Turnbull & Asser, Huntsman, A&S, Edward Green, W Bill, Connolly, Drakes, Swaine Adeney Brigg, Asprey, etc.

    Modern British style: Ozwald Boateng, Paul Smith, Ted Baker, Richard James, etc...bleh

    For the 2nd half of the 20th C working class kids taking mainly African-American US style, adding a dash of continental chic and traditional British menswear to create something unique.

    Sadly nowadays the kids seem to slavishly emulate US 'gangsta' style or else adopt the chav look. [​IMG]
