    Does this count?

    On a side note, I tried uploading my full fit pic, but it said it couldn't because the image exceeded 10mb. Any idea how to make this smaller so it will upload?

    @Murlsquirl Looks good but I would love a better quality pic, better lighting. It's hard to tell the color of the tie, purple/green? It's good now but it can be excellent. :slayer:

    Thanks. The spoiler shows the close up of the tie. I live on the coast and it was overcast and foggy yesterday....and I leave for work at 0615. No way I was getting good lighting. I was stuck with my office and the terrible fluorescent lighting.
