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,

    Most jackets and all coats I own have to have room for a notebook on an inside pocket.

    Things I always carry in my weekend bag (or in my pockets ...):

    * Cell phone
    * Card holder
    * Collapsible umbrella
    * Sunglasses
    * A few tissues
    * Notebook
    * A few pens and pencils
    * Lip balm

    That's it. I try to keep the inventory as minimal as possible.

    Never leave the house without:

    Wallet (with mini pen hooked inside)
    Keys
    iPhone
    Wedding band
    Sunglasses
    Watch

    When dressed for work (suit or SC and tie etc.) add:

    Cotton pocket handkerchief
    Pocket square
    Tie bar (usually low enough to be invisible with jacket closed)
    Cufflinks if wearing a FC shirt

    That's about all I can think of.

    Hampton, I mentioned phone in my earlier post. :) I did surprise me a bit as well that no one else has mentioned a cellphone as a must have accessory, Along with all the tie-clips, cufflinks, umbrellas, pens and knives that many seem to have.

    "Smart-phone - Lenovo".

    I would keep it pretty simple... gloves, belt, socks, tie, wristwatch, wallet, scarf, you will need an umbrella and maybe swims if its raining...cellphone, pen, keys,

    anything else is probably too much. Accessories fall into the less is more category.
