    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.

    Bill Russell is so nice that, when posing for that picture, he even knew what he'd need to wear for the contest.

    Judging from those polls, while we may have lost a few really top quality members, the general standards of dress here have actually much improved since 2010*, and there are some people posting fits there who have individually changed a great deal for the better...

    *but then I am sure that someone will tell us that it was all much better in 2006!

    Here's my humble submission. Black/gray with gray overcheck. Maybe a little dull compared to some here, but a very versatile suit.

    A closer view of the tie, because there really is a lot of detail in there. Really fine black and gold stripes on top of paisley. Not sure where that idea came from, but it adds a depth and visual texture to the tie that I like.

    No Groucho Marx glasses this time because I'm lazy, and pardon the mess in the background.

    Going for the Prince Michael Of Kent look, but without a beard or a kipper tie. Polo Ralph Lauren jacket, Land's End Glen Plaid shirt, Lancaster Saxony almost Glen Plaid tie, J. Peterman Glen Plaid trousers, and Allen Edmonds walnut Strands.[​IMG]

    There ain't no way my pants are going to keep up with all this heavy hitting suitage. As far as the winningest folks, I've got 6. I suspect this pales in comparison to TTO, NOBD, and Spoo. Basically, I'm the mid90's Rockets to their Jordan led Bulls. A comparison which makes me happy because I get the Dream.

    That's a pure center taking the dribble out at the three point line, juking his defender then busting out some beautiful footwork to squeeze through the coming help defender and the original defender.

    What about the three pointer he scored in the NBA final?

    Or the schooling he gave to David Robinson in the division final, was it 94?

    UH alum here - Hakeem was the dog's bollocks, one of my favourite ever players. I lost interest in the NBA when he retired, its never been the same.
