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 should have mentioned that earlier. I would just buy the MW tux and have it altered to fit you.

    Less than 20% of the posters have read what OP wrote.

    He is looking for ways to mitigate what he suspects will be a subpar experience wearing the MW tux he has been requested to wear when he owns his own rig.

    The best suggestion came from Snoogz who said to surreptitiously tailor the tux outside of MW's purview and hope for the best.

    On the other hand, I have my own suggestion. Wear your own tux and feign ignorance.

    So many responses here clarify the distinction between dressing like a gentleman and behaving like one.

    The date in the corner of the comments clarifies the distinction between needing to respond and to keep it to yourself.

    I know I'm replying to an old post, but anyway... You had no reason at all to feel so. She was a tactless cow for insulting you, a guest at her wedding. Even if you had committed some egregious offense, which you did not, it still would display an immense lack of class on her part to insult you.

    True enough; given the considerable passage of time, no one would ever find himself in such a predicament anymore. Please accept my apologies for needlessly striking a nerve.

    Timeless, I'd say.

    Not really. I realize your post was an attempt to "cleverly" rephrase his post and throw it back in his face, but it failed pretty poorly.

    His contribution was, indeed, timeless.

    The +1 next to my comment says that I'm balls deep in WIN while your comment just says that you're dangling from his balls.

    This might be the saddest post coming from a (presumed) adult that I have read on here in a while. How absolutely embarrassing for you.

    That doesn't make it any less true. It's only sad because the truth hurts. As long as you acknowledge that....dangle well my friend [​IMG]

    This is true, and it actually looks half decent, except (if I'm not mistaken), it has a notch lapel no?

    Actually notch lapel isn't the worse, the RTW dinner jacket from Richard Anderson has a notch lapel as well.
    But again, dinner jacket will almost never look good unless bespoke

    Wear what they tell you to wear, and leave it right there. Fixing it won't work, because they probably want you to look like a putz. either because that's their sense of style or to make sure the groom stands out. Looking decent will get you noticed in a bad way.
