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.

    Cheers,

    While you were certainly joking, it would have been neat to see. I'll join in on the passport-holding:

    So hard to pick.

    Topol is the only guy who can do If I Were a Rich Man so you gotta love that. Now having a daughter, I'll randomly hear Sunrise, Sunset in my mind.

    It's like in the good book where it says when a poor man eats a chicken...

    ok gents, im out til saturday night. looking forward to seeing more good fits from team usa. ok, and from team furriner as well.


    also, as i am not the OP, the voting will have to be in another thread. unless spoo wants to make the poll, and im pretty sure he doesnt. so i will link the voting thread as soon as i collect the fits, separate the teams, and get the polls set up.

    When in the course of sartorial events it becomes necessary for one people to establish the supremacy of the garments which have connected them with others and to assume among the powers of the well dressed, the superior and dominant station to which the Laws of Style and Nature of The Eternal Tailor entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of StyleForum-kind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to their domination. Or something like that. U. S. A. [​IMG]

    There's no rule saying the wearer of the outfit must post it in this thread. So, if you see a fit you like from this week, you might want to post it here. Just sayin...

    Sorry for the grainy pics, I know it isn't gonna help team USA's cause, but it was too dark outside. About to head into town for a few drinks.

    Only the shot without me wearing it does the shirt any justice, the rest are so overexposed you can't see the texture. :(

    I'm not sure if this is helping or hurting the cause. USA.

    My humble entry for the 'Merikuns, and I'd appreciate it if both photos are included in the voting.


    [​IMG]

    Navy blazer, red and white striped OCBD (for the flag, of course!), khakis, vintage Florsheim longwings, red white and blue tie.

    But wait, there's more!

    [​IMG]

    Yes, that blazer has Liberty Bell buttons. The tie clip says "Honest Abe" on the handle and "The Rail Splitter" on the axe head. Patriotic Lincoln memorabilia! As a bonus, it belonged to my grandfather, who was a high ranking bureaucrat in Civil Defense back in the day. The "spent a lot of time at the Greenbrier resort starting in the late 50s" kind of high ranking.

    Anyway, USA! USA!
