I've been having a ton of issues, but mostly only on chrome and firefox. =/

 

I'm not having any problems (I use Firefox) now, but have had major ones in the past on Style Forum.

 

Two things that have helped me:  (1) disable Flash on the site; (2) install Adblocker (it's free).

 

Of course YMMV.

 

Cheers,

Thanks! It's right on the edge of being cool enough to wear comfortably today, but I'm glad to get another day out of it.

Beautifully done Sir Crust. You look like you're on your way to a Wodehousian club. I'm sure if I looked closely enough at the pictures I would catch a glimpse of Jeeves's shadow.

The only time people will be able to see them is when you’re sitting, since when standing you should usually have your jacket buttoned.  But even when you’re sitting you’re often sitting behind something (a desk, a table, or some such) so they still won’t be able to see them.

 

So my general principle is that issues involving the area of the trouser waistband aren’t nearly as serious as problems with an item of apparel which is always visible regardless of your situation.  So, for example, there’s no avoiding the consequences of a bad tie choice.

 

So, in short, I wouldn’t worry too much about it.  YMMV.

 

Cheers,

I agree with this, but you may want to have that little belt stabilizer thingy removed in front. Unlike the loops, that will be visible anytime the waistband is visible in front (depending on jacket height, pants rise and how open your quarters are) and is a sure sign that belt loops are nearby. Just save it in case you want to put in on again.

I want to support StyFo's financial success, but the site became unusable because of ad loading. I finally gave in and installed AdBlocker. All better now.

I lectured for two hours on financial data manipulation/organization as part of a CPA CPE course and came out shell shocked and mentally drained. I have much more respect now for many of you here who work in the academia field. I chose accounting to avoid public speaking but funny how life turns out.

Hello gents!

Felt like a fall fit despite it being Spring. Still cool enough for flannels. I think tweed is going into storage tomorrow.

Very nice.  (I assume the colors are most accurate in the unspoilered 'Textures' photograph.)

 

I so much prefer fall to spring that I habitually wear tweed as long as the temperature permits.

 

Cheers,

As a fellow accountant, I wish more of us dressed like this. Very nice!
