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,

    Before he died: Ed Bradley of 60 Minutes. Sharp dresser and sharper mind. He always dressed well.

    ETA: While alive: Denzel's no slacker either, but much more inconsistent than Bradley.

    Style icon has to be someone is more than just a pose on a photo. If I were to name one person whom I have witnessed in person, it would be Massimo Bizzocchi. He is a combination of great style, mannerism, and charisma.
    Alternates (in no discernable order): Bruce Boyer and MAnton, Luciano Barbera, Ciro Paone (before his stroke), and Jacob Lateiner (pianist and faculty of Juilliard).

    First time poster here. I thought I'd dig back to find a personal icon thread. Here are my icons, who are my icons less for their clothing labels and more for their distinctive personas..

    Frederick Douglas- Intelligent, intense and of unmistaken presence. That's what it's all about.

    [​IMG]

    John Coltrane- Calm, passionate, and introspective.

    [​IMG]

    James Joyce- Mysterious, skeptical, and worldly

    [​IMG]

    Sam Cooke- tireless, fearless, infectious, and classic

    It's the four Cs for me: Connery, Clooney, Kennedy and Cary Grant. (Yes, I know, three Cs and a K, but four Cs sounds better)

    I think he is an awesome dresser. We're both the same age, height, build, complexion, hair color, etc. Makes it easy to see what colors, styles, etc. work on him and then get ideas for myself. However, pretty sure my clothes budget is quite a bit less.

    To me that makes more sense than Lapo Elkann.
