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.

    I will say I have scrolled through those 13 pages of TSF many times and most of them are misses for me. That may only be because I am keenly aware of my need for staple shirts and few of them seem like staples to me. YMMV.

    Wow, I don't know if Timo or Clag got the same Korean dowry deal but a nice quality suit is included in the dowry among many other good things. I love being Korean. I told them I am picking the suit, NOT them. [​IMG]

    Is it common for SC/Blazers to be quite a bit shorter in length? A lot of times I see them about even with sleeve length barely covering the ass and the button point so high up.

    Rudals,

    Look at photos of Matteo Marzotto. He is a great example of CBD done right both in color and style. Should be good inspiration for how to avoid being boring.

    The steps you want to take (ie. gingham shirts) are, with great respect, totally wrong.

    A few weeks ago I won the bid on this Holiday & Brown for $9.99 finally shipped in from Italy.

    Also got these but I'm wondering if this top one (Tina Cosma) is too much...

    [​IMG]

    I go back and forth on this one (Etro Milano). I got all these for $9.99 each so it's not gonna kill me if they don't work.

    I like this one. It's a vintage Yves Saint Laurent

    Finally have a pair of suspenders for my RLPL suit.

    You heard me, Bean. Lighter grays > Charcoal when it comes to a true navy tie and not some lighter shade of blue

    In my opinion, of course.

    It's NOT $9.99! It's $10.00.
    But anyways, if that's all you had to pay for then I say why not. But I didn't like any of them.

    Try a Google image search. Matteo is (probably) not a member of SF.

    I believe that navy ties go perfectly with light grey suits.
    But I think they also can work with charcoal greys.

    Wow...(I am speechless).
    I thought he was a SF member.
    That's probably the dumbest thing I've posted thus far...but there may be dummer ones.
