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.

    Debating between the 60mm and 57mm. Attached photo is the 60mm. Is it too big relative to the width of my face, or is it about right? I'm torn as usually I wear 60's, but this frame has the 3mm difference but I've only been able to try the 60.

    Site related question: are "referrals" a good or a bad thing in member profiles? I don't have any, but I've seen a couple members with 1 or 2

    I think it's like when a new user signs up, he(/she) can type in the name of the forum member that directed him(/her) to SF.

    Gosh I'm being too PC.

    Could someone please recommend a brand or a MTM operation that make completely unlined button down collar shirts with a nice collar roll and slim fit. Fabric needs to be lightweight and comfortable foremost.

    Tie Crafters are the only ones I am aware of.

    I am tall with a very long skinny neck (6'3, 15.5 neck), any suggestions for shirts with a substantial/high collar?

    What kind of Gitman shirt do I have? I recently came into possession of a white Gitman Bros. Oxford Shirt. Fabric is nice and thick and is labelled "TTX". Fit is very slim, which makes me doubt it's a mainline Gitman? There is a box pleat on the back, but no locker loop or back collar button. Label says "Gitman Bros." and below that, "Made in USA" Navy Blue background with Beige letters and a green outline around it. Like this: [​IMG] Labelled as size "M". Chest pocket has a stitched chevron type detail, a subtle "V" if you will fropm the top down 1/3 of the pocket.

    I found a good deal on ebay for Allen Edmonds Sanfords. They are my size (10) BUT it says the width is C,B (narrow). I don't have a "narrow" foot but they are not wide either, I would say my feet are skinny to very average. Will these be too "tight" for me? Thanks in advance!

    ^Possibly. You might want to ask for measurements, and judge for yourself.

    /White/Blue shirt + black pants + black shoes = no-no?

    Looking for cheap honeymoon wear. We will be in NYC and Miami. Needs to travel well and be versatile. Right now I have my charcoal suit, navy blazer, dark slacks, plenty of dress shirts. Not exactly beachy...

    Suggestions?

    Light linen suit? Linen jacket and khakis? You could probably find something at J Crew or something along those lines.

    I have very uneven shoulders (My right is 3/4" lower than my left, which I'm told is more than most) and the shoulder pads sewn into my suits did not take this into account, leaving my shoulders less than clean. Is this fixable?

    Quick question. I'm looking to buy some dress shirts this summer before I go to college. Besides pale blue and white, what are some other appropriate/attractive colors or patterns? What do you guys think about french blue or purple? What about black? I'm Chinese, medium dark skin.

    Black or the same shade of brown as your shoes.

    Yes, but take it to a very experienced tailor.
