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.

    What are the appropriate times of year for chambray shirts. Are they 3-season wear?

    What is the life expectancy of Brioni ties? I just picked up my first Brioni-chose it because the double Windsor knot was perfect. It was one of the most expensive tie labels at Saks, but I'm wondering how long will a tie with such a fine weave last.

    Silk is extremely durable. As long as you tie/untie it correctly and take care of it, it will last a long time!

    Untie it "correctly"? I would assume that you mean "gently," but is there some kind of intricate ritualistic tie-knot loosening ceremony of which I am unaware? [​IMG]

    I permit myself to wear chambray year-round. As long as the color is acceptable for the season, and as long as the rest of the outfit is also season-appropriate, I think it can be pulled off.

    Untie it the reverse of how you tied it, rather than pulling the length of the narrow end through the knot as is often done and whick risks stretching/distorting the silk.

    Depends how many times you wear it, if it gets dirty and you send it out to get cleaned...

    Navy blazer question... I almost always wear it with charcoal or dark grey pants, but I'm thinking about wearing it with dark brown flannel pants. 100% okay and really good choice, or no?

    I wonder if this is why my black satin bow tie is fraying... I untie it like shoe laces (by pulling the open end) rather than loosening the knot.

    I hear that this only happens to bow ties that are under $130.

    I don't care for the look of dark brown pants with a navy blazer. Still, if you really think it looks good, go ahead and post a picture or two.

    It's not that I have anything against dark brown flannel pants, you understand. Or with navy blazers. It's just the combination that I don't think of as something which works particularly well. Still, I suppose exceptions exist, as exceptions exist to nearly any rule.
