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.

    First suit, tie & shirt purchase. Had a crack at the dimple. Got some practice ahead of me...

    Try pulling your knot a little tighter, and pinch the base of it a bit while doing so. This should help you get a better dimple. See the pic of Spoo's knot in the post above yours. Once you figure out a basic dimpling technique that works for you, you'll pretty much get a decent dimple every time you tie your tie without much thought. Also, excellent choices for your first suit, shirt, and tie (and pocket square). :slayer: I can tell you've been browsing SF. ;)

    Thanks Flyswatter. I have been researching a lot on here & browsing heaps of threads for ages to try and get something stylish. I don't have heaps of coin so want to get it right without spending.wasting too much money. Plus, I don't wear a suit for work so don't need alot but I love when I get the chance to wear one! The hardest thing seems to be getting slim enough fit shirts as I am pretty skinny.

    Cheers for the knot advice. I will keep practicing. I love Spoo's knots & hope to achieve something like that.

    How do you untie your DFIH's? Mine are pretty hard to untie and I feel like I'm harming the tie.

    Yeah, it's not self releasing. Pull ends to get out the first loop. The second loop you have to take out by hand.

    You should always untie your tie by carefully reversing the knotting process.
