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.

    Splitting hairs, I doubt 99.99999999999% of the population would notice or care about the difference (but I prefer Exhibit A). If one is too light weight for your taste, go with the other.

    The guy sold 9 of his 10 squares since the link was posted in GNAT. I wonder what % GNAT accounts for. I'm sure at least 7 of 9.

    I'd say all 9. I've had both on my watch list for a couple of weeks and none was sold until now.

    I account for 2 of those 9. And I wear white linen 99 % of the times, lol.

    I'd go with Exhibit B Noodles, the pattern is less busy. Just personal preference though. Just ditch the one you think is too lightweight.

    Is Exhibit B the one Vanda is currently offering?

    I say they are both boring as hell. Try a neat, and get some burgundy in your life. :)

    Wasn't this thread started in part because Noodles had way too many blue ties? That said, I like both but I think they are different. Exhibit A strikes me as a bit more formal and I like it a bit better.

    I think it's fine to keep A and B. They're similar but different. But if you don't like B, sell it and buy something you like better.

    This thread got started partly because I had like 10 navy ties and nothing else. Plus I was doing other stupid things

    Exhibit B is my preference, but I like em both, though i'd wear both with grey suits over navy. navy suit, light blue shirt, navy tie can work but it's a bit boring even in conservative workplaces. I'd reach for burgundy or forest green ties (or grey in winter) to wear with navy over navy. My 2c

    My 2 cents is the Exhibit A tie is more suited to CBD and the Exhibit B tie is more suited to casual fits, i.e., sc and odd trousers.

    Well, fortunately the former is no longer an issue. :)

    Thanks all for the feedback.

    Before this thread got started, I had all navy based neckties and 38R suits and no oxford shoes and no good shirts.

    Caustic, how the heck did you end up with that drink?
