    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.

    Seems like a challenge better suited for summer.

    Maybe the plaid plaid world challenge?

    My first thought was that makes that fit so great is the trousers. I didn't even notice the shirt at first. When I did notice it, I started to think that it wasn't the optimal choice - but then, if I didn't notice it until I was forced to, clearly the organic success of the fit renders the concentration on specifics irrelevent... (SF circular logic problems!)

    It can be done. But I would bet large sums that for a FC most fits would be trainwrecks.

    :lurk:

    Isn't that what makes the C in FC (speaking as someone who has never bested the C, of course).

    lol. imo, the C is not too look like a wreck, its to succeed. i think asking the general public to come up with something not ridiculous for this idea is asking a lot. i dont even think i would play because my wardrobe is not broad enough to do this unforced.

    its one thing for a challenge to make you think a little harder about using your wardrobe, and making pairing, but when you have to start really forcing things, that when things fly off the rails imo.
