    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.

    Honoured to end up in 3rd place in this one! Very stiff competition. What's next AAS?

    But I don't own anything black watch (save for a cummerbund, and working that into a daily fit would be a little challenging . . . :embar:)

    I think that would be a little too narcissistic. :revolve: Maybe a dress like EFV challenge though.


    I remember a few years ago there was a brand trying to make cummerbunds casual everyday wear. I haven't heard from them in a while.


    I remember I did a red challenge before and people kept wearing burgundy and pink. :facepalm:

    Congrats, AAS.

    Well, if a colored tie challenge is wanted, there was some recent discussion on GNAT about purple being a challenging color generally.

    Cheers,

    Nice.

    (It'll be ironic if Roycru enters but doesn't win ...)

    Stubbs and wooton had some...had a very thin red line in them though...and I thought I wasn't ever going to find someone who likes blackwatch more than I do...I was way wrong.

    Nice one, AAS. Won´t be playing this time, being Roycru isn´t easy and many, oh so many lost souls will fail and be doomed.

    It's just for fun. No doom involved. I think dressing like Roycru is the easiest thing to do. Trad/ivy looks aren't hard.

    That might be true for some, yet not for all probably :)

    I believe I cast the deciding vote for AAS. Good entries overall, but closer than I thought it would be.
