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.

    This week's challenge is a simple one - Freestyle Friday.

    Anything in the Classic Menswear realm goes, including fits from the WAYWRN: Classic Menswear, Casual Style thread.

    Post your best fit of the week.
    The cut off is Sunday morning and the poll will close on Monday evening.

    The winner will need to organise the next challenge within a day of the poll closing. This is very important to keep us on track. If you don't know how to organise the challenge, there are many people here who can help so don't let that dissuade you from entering. I've added some guidelines below:

    You need to come up with a theme for the next challenge. This theme is entirely up to you but I'm sure there will be plenty of ideas

    Once you do, start a new thread in the Classic Menswear forum with a title like "Friday Challenge <Date> - <Title>".

    Make an announcement in the HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part IV (starting May 2014) and WAYWRN: Classic Menswear, Casual Style threads with a link to the challenge.

    Just before voting is due to start, edit your thread to include a poll, add in the entries and choose a closing date for the poll.

    You can see how the other challenges have been run and pretty much copy the format.

    Reach out if you have any questions.

    The Nominees

    Thanks, Gerry, but I don't know how you expect anyone to learn how to "organise" something when you can't even spell the word correctly. Looking at you, too, Cleav. ;)

    I wore this today. Let it ride!

    Well this is what I wore on Friday, and seeing as the rules of this thread are more liberal than Bernie Sanders, I'll happily contribute:

    Not sure about that. Plenty of Americans seem to have managed to organise challenges prior to this.

    @bienluienapris so you grabbed that Vanda huh? I've been looking at it too and wondering what I might do with it. Nice fit!

    @pravda , I can hardly see those garments. Any chance you could get a bit closer in with the camera?
