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.

    You're right EliodA. It is midnight navy. Almost black. I am not sure who wud carry the color you're looking for. If Hober has them, check out the real life pictures in their gallery or the SF Hober thread.

    FYSA...if anyone like wide pointed end knits, The Knottery just did a big restock. It'll be the best $40 you've spent in a long time.

    There is a really nice slate blue fina that many places (myself included) carry. You are right though it especially lends itself to light-mid grey suits for a lower contrast look.

    I lol'ed at that. :D

    And then, I had ~16 pages to catch up with. Alas, it went pretty straight onto some "Semper-Kabbutt" and his/their $1k shirts. After three pages of that ordeal à la 'Will I ever get that lost time back?', I jumped straight to the last page. Have I missed anything important in between?

    Fair point. There are always outliers of course in the mass of humanity, but if you have the fitness and the right attitude you can be SW&D cool pretty much your whole life. I know more than a few guys in their 60's and 70's who are waaaaayyyy cooler and dress way cooler than most dudes half their age.

    Haha, yeah I was surprised nobody picked up on that...
    Anyway, I don't think you've missed much so your time is most definitely wasted.
    In the meantime the thread has gone full circle and the latest discussion seems to be about ties :)

    Loved to see that.

    The latter is about as much "fun" as watching paint dry. As would be my own attempts.
    Rais otoh, different story.

    Hopefully these two see the @ and don't mind. I know both are in Florida and have good taste.

    I meant the discussion surrounding it, which has been enlightening, to me at least.

    PSA anyone who is looking to order ties and such from Exxquisit Trimmings, they are having a sale and promo where the shipping is free to the US.

    By the way, I bought the last Khaki from NMWA.
