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.

    Cheers,

    In golf, the ball always goes where it is hit, regardless of intention.

    The same can be said for Catchcall's outfit.

    Are they? This is the caption on the original picture:
    Shirt: Gimbel's "sportif" collection
    Tie: J. Garcia
    Bespoke socks
    Shoes: Red Wing Bluchers
    Jacket: Sears house brand
    Pants: Fell to earth, presumably from space.

    I'll believe the tie is an original Dunhill limited edition if you show us a picture of the label. I would believe it was a limited edition designed by J Garcia for Dunhill, though.

    It seems to me the AskAndy list is a joke. Those socks don't even look bespoke.

    This thread is like a train wreck, you just can't help staring as you pass by.

    Yes it looks like the original poster has disappeared. He has now had the benefit of the doubt and has declared his intentions. At least your friend Mr Bespoke the Troll is dressed for the part.

    Wow! I never knew so many people would reply. Thanks Sator for the advice but really, I love the way I dress now but I'll heed some of the advice you gave.

    What's this book you bring up?

    For some of my doubters I'm actually the man in the picture so no this isn't a joke. Sigh, I'm not a troll! And please don't make negative comments about looks. [​IMG]

    Pardon me for beginning to doubt you (you just took a long time to reply) but if you are so deeply enamoured of your dress why did you post here asking for suggestions if it weren't to try to substantially improve?

    The book is entitled The Suit.

    Sorry but I only check forums once or twice a day. I just wanted to gauge some opinions but I do want to improve some parts like tie matching and things. I like to really clash sometimes. [​IMG]

    I'll check out the book at my neighborhood friendly bookstore.

    I strongly advise against that in your case. It may depress you tremendously

    Yes, we could see that [​IMG] You do realise that by having a keleidoscope of colours like that you chop yourself up, don't you? Choping youself up means you look fragmented and above all - tubby. The black belt - just to mention one instance - creates strong horizontal lines across a background canvass of brown to produce a widening effect. This chops your torso off from your legs and makes you look portly. The glaring white socks even further chops you up. Add the red trousers and you end up looking like you entered down that chimney. That's why you end up blending in perfectly with the wreath Notice the way the gentleman pictured in the link here also wears a black belt with his red trousers. It too has a widening effect on him. http://www.adpunch.org/images/r_sant...oca-cola-2.jpg Maybe you too want to look like a man of substance?
