1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Please go outside and give this tie to an homeless...
    Really quite a priceless comment.
    I like helping people . In this case it will help 2 people, one guy will get rid of an horrible tie and the other guy could use it for an interview and hang himself once he failed the interview because of the tie .

    Ouch. I apologize for offending you, but I happen to like ties that are bright and heavily patterned at times. I don't feel that every tie must be repp and/or simple patterned. Constructive criticism is appreciated and sharing different opinions is also appreciated, but I don't think that comments like that are gentlemanly at all. Cheers, Mike

    I wonder if it is a Versace? Although I recall Gianfranco Ferre also did ties in that type of pattern.

    FIH, thank you for the edification. I do not know ernest, and therefore am not familiar with his humor.

    Labelking, the tie is Zegna, as you were wondering.

    Cheers,
    Mike

    Also, Ernest is a fairly conservative dresser. I like his look and it works for him, but he is not a fan of bold patterns and colors.

    Mr. Checks and Ernest:

    Thanks for the comments. To answer a couple of questions, the outfit is relatively new - the suit was from the Paul Stuart sample sale, the tie is Tyrwhytt, and the shirt is Jantzen Tailor. Although not evident is the pictures, the shoes were A&E.

    The photo is not of Romney, but of a former past president of the Assoc. of the Bar of the City of New York. The photo was taken during a reception and award ceremony and the venue is the reception hall.

    Thanks for the compliment.

    Actually, i don't like the pattern of the tie (too exotic).

    I like orange/blue striped ties. And i guess orange is rather bright.
