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.

    Ronald Reagan was also quite the farmer.

    I'm not sure you're going to convince too many people on this forum that the only acceptable shoe tone for a navy suit is black.

    That's very simply because most people here are North American. No more than that.

    Nothing wrong with brown worn in the correct circumstances.

    Which is precisely why it's silly to say that wearing brown shoes with a navy suit is unacceptable. The conventions are different when you cross the Atlantic.

    Back to the topic of brown suits... I personally have a couple brown suits (one dark brown and the other tweed with some blue and gray pattern). Both get regular wear.

    I think if you are considering a brown suit, go for one that is on the darker end.
