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.

    Thanks, got a link to the Ralph Lauren's?
    They aren't sold online, only in stores. I have them in a silk/linen blend from the Polo Golf line and linen from Polo Ralph Lauren. They come up on eBay often. The ones from Polo Ralph Lauren are the Dalton model. Try this: http://clothing.shop.ebay.com/Pants-...=p3286.c0.m282

    to me they look like dual pleats but facing each other, which is unusual.

    I think you are right! Those are kiss/scissor/inverted box pleats, not forward pleats. They were popular with the Italian brands in the 90s. They were typically made with another reverse pleat on either side. That explains why the trousers are so baggy. Thankfully the style has disappeared. Best to stick with forward pleats.

    +1 on both counts.

    lol it's 2.

    I like em' because they look loose and comfortable without being as "old man-ish" as regular chinos.

    I think the loose, billowy style is what makes the pants good.

    Any idea's what they are? Where to get something similar?

    (I'm in London next week, if that helps.)


    Reevolving, is that you?
