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.

    In some industries, there's a real shift towards it (LinkedIn). My LinkedIn is reasonably comprehensive - and more up-to-date than my CV which I haven't looked at in maybe six months.

    Thanks guys, particularly to false and GF.

    The CL isn't very hard - difficult part is resumes in trying to keep concise. I'm no good at those sections which say things like "Key strengths". You can verbal anything for those sections describing yourself as a business genius even if your experience shows that you do little more than watch south park on weekends with your stoner mates whilst barely pulling a pass average.

    If I shot mine through to one of you guys could you do a critique?

    Any thoughts on a new pair of shoes I just bought? (...intending to wear mainly with jeans).

    Church Chetwynd, walnut calf
    • 10% discount and free shipping, these were a total bargain IMO

    Also had a few pairs of Cheaneys together, so thought someone might be interested in a group shot/ Cheaney range of brown (ish) comparison

    Burnso - all nice shoes but I'm not a fan of shoes with jeans - never have been - its a personal thing. Perhaps the odd big brown or burgundy country brogue gunboat. Same with tailored jackets or sport coats (some rare exceptions) with jeans. { I know theres no need to mention it because no one here would ever do it - wearing a tie with jeans}

    I think it looks like the straight arrow accountant from one of the big firms, whose wife usually buys his suits, who just chucked on jeans and an old business shirt, no tie and business shoes to "relax" for the weekend or casual BBQ. With jeans I like boots, sneakers*, desert boots, chukkas etc.

    That said - I think the loafers work best - either with argyles or white socks.
    I know YOU wouldn't go sockless with those loafers.
    Would you?

    * as per the usual sneaker warning.
    Depends what kind of sneaker and please please - no sneakers if you are over 30 or so.

    What were you looking up on the dictionary?

    I agree with FXH. They will look odd with jeans. And may stray into Hipster territory, depending on how skinny your jeans are. Would look good with a navy suit though, or a smart pair of cotton trousers.

    Can't agree with that. I have a nice pair of grey suede Common Projects that look great with jeans. I agree about sneakers if you mean running shoes, as I'd never want to give anyone the impression that exercise is an interest of mine :).

    The Sundance Kid, wears a few classic ensembles in the film Spygame(good show). Outfit one herringbone sports coat, blue shirt with black knit - and to throw it all together a mac for protection from the elements. However his best accessory is his Porsche 912 in British racing green.....

    Firstly, I'd never guessed you were over 30, secondly you look good in anything, thirdly you are so advanced you can break the rules.

    I meant sneakers. I'd never imagined anyone here would wear athletic shoes for anything other than exercise.

    I have seen some of the sneakers from skateboard mobs like vans look acceptable. Suede sneakerrs always look better. I can get with old white or black Dunlop volleys though.
