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.

    New purchases:

    (1) What do you guys think of the Zoff as a third suit? I was looking for a charcoal but the sale is hard to pass up (I can't find a charcoal in my size either).

    (2) Being blind as a bat I'm looking at picking up a pair of black Oliver Peoples' Gregory Pecks tomorrow. A classic or the tip of the trad eyewear iceberg?

    Personally, I would advise against this.

    Being the only person wearing a pocket square is the sure-fire way to stand out in the workplace. I interned at an office and knew someone that also worked at that office. When I asked a fellow employee, do you know person X, they replied, oh yeah he's the 'pocket square guy' - and he only ever wore a conservative white linen square.

    Yeah, people at my work are forever commenting on my pocket squares.

    If you're really concerned about how people will view you based on your attire, the key is to make yourself known for the work you do in the office before indulging in too much sartorial flair. Luckily for me this happened naturally as, although I liked wearing suits from the time I was a grad, it's only been in the last 2 years that I've started wearing flashier items.

    On another note, I've had the opportunity to review a shirt by Lewis & Taylor Shirt Makers -- an online MTM site that hasn't had much in the way of a presence on styleforum. Solid choice with some nice fabrics on offer. If I had my time again I'd rejig the fit of my shirt a bit though -- always the pitfall with the first shirt from a maker.

    That's a point I left out. Person X had a good reputation for working hard and producing good work - so he could get away with it (luckily).

    I like FoxHound's point about dressing similarly, but better. Wear similar coloured clothing, but get your shirt fitting very well and your trousers looking sharper and your shoes looking cleaner and you'll be known for 'dressing well' rather than dressing 'uniquely'. After all, they say 'fit is king'. That's the key to starting out positively (imho),

    I am the "pocket square guy" where I work. There are a few others around, but not in IT. (Spandexter could be doing more in this area BTW). Ive never found it a problem. People always comment favourably, notice when I don't wear one and they remember me. Its also very handy when meeting someone for the first time in a building of 5000 people.
