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.

    They have a formal/wedding connotation to me.

    same here and is that a silk pocket square?

    Are we going to hear that the DB is never appropriate for CBD?

    Too many solids.

    Fair enough, but the shirt actually has thin pencil stripes. Tough to see from a camera phone. I do see your point though. Perhaps a subtle silk paisley square would have done nicely with this.

    ^ Slewfoot - I like the ensemble.

    Foo - agree with the others on the shirt / tie combo. Not a fan.

    Silk is rebellious? I almost exclusively wear silk squares.

    I was sensing some jest regarding the silk.

    You've probably discussed this elsewhere, but why no linen? I probably wear linen squares 8 out of 10 days.

    Thanks ET! I'm always amazed at how many compliments this suit gets in the real world. Then again, perhaps I'm not as it is pretty killer. :^)

    It's a good looking suit and it stands out dramatically - there are just not that many DB suits out there, particularly well-cut DB suit on younger guys.

    Pretty much. A shame that is the case as DB's are loads of fun to wear in my opinion, but c'est la vie.

    It's off to a great start. Let's hope it stays that way.
