    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.

    Re-tie the fucking knot, take a picture, and report back.

    (solid combo though *nods approvingly*)

    knot needs some work, but that is an easy fix.

    it's kinda hard to tie the knot when the tie is thin and flimsy!
    take a second look.

    Thin and flimsy? You should be able to get a knot so tight a mouse couldn't stick its little mouse pecker in there.

    And you call that a dimple? Dimple before you tighten, when you've got enough room on top of the knot to slide your finger through, just like your papa taught you.

    But maybe he didn't teach you too good. Papa Rudals done let me down. Let me take you aside son, and show you the stuff knots are made of. I'm spoilering this image, because this knot is plain and simple fuckable. This is the shit that causes popes to retire. It will grant you a seam splitting erection.

    Now get a napkin, clean off your pants, head to the bathroom, and make me proud.

    Noodles, do you have to wear only white and light blue shirts? I mean they are not bad, but maybe a sublte colored shirt could work too or you can't wear those?

    Betel,

    I think I can wear pretty much whatever I want now. But still gotta be a suit.

    Clag,

    Happy New Year to you too!
    I had to do a double loop 4IH to make it work.

    Clag,

    You do know that the man yelling in that picture got shot up with a shotgun towards the end of the movie, right?

    Sincerely,

    Did they ship your ties yet? The whole making process and shipping process took me about 1.5 to 2 weeks. Shipping gets to the US fast with UPS Express service

    Lack of a proper dimple will kill the thumbs every time.

    BLASPHEMY!!!

    also, i know you are limited but id love to see some more variation in your suit game. maybe some grays and some calmer patterns. it will really open up your tie possibilities.
