    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.

    :laugh: Yes, the resemblance was a bit disappointing, once I started looking for pictures... But he was the one that came to mind when I saw your pic.

    I was a huge fan, BTW. (Don't tell anyone.)

    I won't tell a soul!

    Just mentioned this to the duchess, she lold.

    I was likened to David Sylvian from the band Japan as a lad. Quite liked Spandau, hated Duran.

    Happy days

    Feck, I now got the sugarbutch on my case!

    I only outed him as an Alpha Romeo racing driver and how sexy is that!?!?!

    Sylvian then, me then. Certainly not now.

    Sylvian (musical genius) then...

    That was my old and favourite dog Bracken. She was an Irish Wolfhound Lurcher. The softest most playful and gentle dog, truly a mans best friend but when set to work... The dog to the right was Smoky a small blue whippet and to the left, out of sight is Poppy a Jack Russel Terrier. As a three they were formidable.

    Thanks for asking.

    It is a very valid question, and I guess I will find out. Let's just say that I am glad I did not pay full retail price for that suit, otherwise I would not have dared using the trousers at all. Still, I could probably use it as PJs, it's that soft..... :nodding:

    Some superb entries in this week's contest. Some rather clashing ones too, but I applaud the ideas! Good stuff, everyone.



    Friday Challenge. I was hoping to put together something interesting this morning, but I overslept and so had to get ready quickly, so went straight into zero-thought, wear-what-works mode. Meh, it's OK but very dull. Sorry, stitchy! At least there are some elephants on the square to brighten things up.

    Really nice, who made the suit?

    Nice, didn't know about that. Too expensive for my taste though, you could get a similar tie bespoke from Hober for about a third the price. Even with shipping and if I would happen to get docked with import charges it would still be less than half the price. Too bad, since I would like to support local makers.....
