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.

    Ari, all of your jacket sleeves look short, from a little to a lot :confused:

    Some thoughts on the C&J discussion on the previous page...

    I wonder whether the 358 is bigger than the 348. I have width and instep issues, the Simpson doesn't work for me at all, but the 358 is mint and possibly wider than the 337. Might be something to think about.

    C&J's new 363 is pretty modern too.

    I'd agree with most of this other than the bold portion. IMHO there is no such thing as a collar that is 'too spread for a FIH knot".

    Ari - doesn't seem too old man to me.
    Like the peak lapel sing breast suit.
    Not a fan of the shiny real estate agent /politician single colour tie.

    The Flavor Fav watch on the colourful band supplies too much casual discordant colour for the business suits. Smaller watch and smaller subdued NATO band if you want that combo with a suit and tie.

    A word of warning - you've gone from taking photos of yourself in the lift to grabbing women in the lift.
    Who knows where this could end - one day you'll get caught! stop before it escalates.

    I'd agree with this.

    This is why I asked a few pages back about how TBM did his knot. Whether it was a double-fih or a single-fih.

    Just like the Big W ad "2 bucks to look a million bucks eh?"

    Yeah - i giveaway/donate/bin clothes after 2 years - mostly to my dad or salvo's. Im not one to hoard.

    I think watches are personal and I put bright orange nato's on my submariner from time to time with a suit ... but i do balance it out... sometimes a conservative CBD outfit with a nato strap can look out of place. If you have time try mixing the straps up each day - always good to keep the masses guessing :)

    The 358 is the same last as the 348 only it's the handgrade version.

    I think I'm with PoP on the extreme cut away collar.

    Its a look that to my mind needs balancing (not just in this case but generally) with a large tie knot.

    With a skinnier tie and knot it can look a bit unfinished with the neckband underside showing and the tie space and gap between peaks seems to be begging to be filled.

    Its not so much that a FIH is wrong but that it needs a thicker tie and/or a thicker knot.

    See Prince Michael of Kent and his huge ties - mostly tied FIH but clearly big thick ties.

    I'd say get your thickest tie and do a double FIH - it will look better - I'd say it would suit the peak lapel suit well. Look a bit flash even. Not your usual tie look.

    Nice to meet some fellow SF'ers last night. Unfortunately I couldn't stay long but did walk away with a beautiful blue cashmere knit. Congratulations on both the product and night Jason.

    Me, too.

    However, it's possible to change the way the page displays so that you can see a greater number of posts per page.

    My display is set at the default of 15 (I think) posts per page, but if you go up to the top of the page, under where it gives the title of the thread, you will see a smaller heading entitled "Preferences". Click on that, and it opens a window that gives you the option of changing various settings, including the number of posts visible per page. More posts per page equals fewer pages in total for the thread.

    PoP I got around to some photos today, apologies for the phone camera effort. I can do more if you want something in particular. I had some which had a EG202 in them for comparison but they're very blurry so I can try again tomorrow if you want. Shipping is fedex, Trees are mediocre.
