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.

    The only suit I have that fits me anymore is a light grey suit supply sienna. It's a nice suit, i've only worn it a few times and I don't intend to buy another suit for a while. I only wear one a couple times a year, usually for... weddings.

    I am looking for a little inspiration to make the light grey (which is pretty versatile) work for fall. Any suggestions for shirt/tie/shoes/pocket square? Or should I just go james bond?

    For me.....it would be a white or blue spread collar shirt, burgundy or navy shoes (black as a last resort), a navy or burgundy sweater or tweed vest for contrast and fall colored tie and pocket square. YMMV

    Wearing a navy or burgundy sweater under a light gray suit to a wedding just seems sort of "off" to me--too informal. Ditto a tweed vest. Navy shoes are very hard to find. Black, dark brown and medium brown shoes work just fine with a light gray suit.

    A medium or dark blue shirt with a pink or yellow tie is a festive look I like with a light gray suit.

    Just my $.02.
