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. I'll probably go with the darker one. Also, can you recommend a blazer? I heard the suitsupply navy jackets don't qualify as blazers?

    Not sure why you would stray away from blue jeans, they are about as versatile as you get with casual wear.

    Has anyone ever heard of "Four/Forty" - made in Holland sport coats? I'm looking at one on ebay for $30 and 100% wool.

    Blue for sure. Bring the jacket and shoes with you to pick out the jeans.

    Brooks Brothers has something like 20 Blazers on their site, if that helps.

    Some of us were born that way and are doing pretty okay :p

    Not sure you can go wrong for that price though. If it fits and all...

    How cold is it where you are? I like those jackets, but lately I've been wearing my tweed blazers a lot. I have two herringbone ones and a houndstooth one (two brown one white/black) and they go with just about everything. Wore them out with jeans last night for a friend's bday dinner.

    Quote: At the moment around10 Celsius. In the winter it goes down to around -10. Summer up to +30. I don't have much experience with jackets, for what sort of weather would those brown ones be suitable? I was thinking fall/spring.

    Does anyone know of a good casual belt to match a pair of bourbon AE Mcallisters? I like the AE Madison belt in walnut to match my Strands, but they don't appear to make it in bourbon.

    Looking for casual starter brown boots.

    Versatile.

    Low profile.

    Sleek toe-box.

    ~$200-300.

    What should I buy?

    Need some new shoe trees. Nothing fancy, just some functional cedar ones.
    Any thoughts on who is offering them for cheap?

    Thanks.

    Check out wolverine and AE 2nds. Wolverine's are not as sleep as dress boots, but it is definitely versatile.

    Sales for cedar shoe trees should be coming up. Jos A bank has some decent ones for 8 bucks a pop when it's on sale.

    So are the Totes rubber overshoes. At $8.50, they're not going to be any lower anywhere else. And winter's fast approaching. Just saying. (You people in Hawaii, Key West, and the Brazilian rainforest just shut up with your "Winter? What's Winter?" talk.)

    I ended up going to an afternoon show instead of an evening one. Wore a medium gray pinstripe suit, with faint white pinstripes, light blue shirt with white collar, and a burgundy neat tie.

    I wore walnut brogues and struggled to pick out socks. Ended up with a brownish argyle pair. What socks would typically be a good match?

    For the record, there was one old timer in a suit with a sweater, and everyone else was in varying states of disarray.

    As the saying I've noted previously in this thread goes, a businessman chooses his socks to match his pants; a gentleman chooses his socks to match his mood.

    Yea, I'm familiar with the theory, but for some reason nothing I had looked good, and wearing navy socks just felt wrong.

    Here's a blurry snap, the socks weren't an eyesore, but I certainly felt that they were sub-optimal.
