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.

    Derbies are generally not worn with suits. Oxfords are considered more formal. But you can get away a derby if you want.

    Why not get a two or three pairs while you're up there???? YOU HAVE FRICKIN $4k to spend!!!!

    I suggest


    -Black laceup
    -Proper brown laceup (enough with that Gucci and RLBL crap!!!!)
    -Wingtip (like that cardigan, or you can buy it's leather soled sibling, the C&J for RL Marlow, when it goes on Private Sales for $600)

    Blowing $4k a month or two before the wedding might not be so wise. All expenditures on clothing is on hold, except my Hanes at Target. After the wedding, I'll buy the mrs a nice purse or something and clothes and shoes and more clothes, and maybe Hanes for her too.

    Dang~
    are my RLBL derbies that bad?!

    Derbies vs oxford
    to a commoner like me, they just look the same and I just cannot figure out what makes an Oxford more formal.
    Again, I will never buy another derby, next time it will be an oxford or oxfords.

    I think there are better ties on there, but I like the wool houndstooth tie!

    Rudals, for gods sake, get some black captoes. Just buy the meermins, they look great and are well made. They're cheap too, so you can see whether you actually like them. I'll post a pic of mine tomorrow.
