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.

    ^^ +1. Jeans don't need to be skin-tight and turn your feet blue because the hem cuts the circulation off at the ankle. Jeans are just like trousers in terms of fit. Too baggy and they look awful, too tight and it'll be super uncomfortable. There is a happy medium. In terms of color/wash, my opinion is that dark denim (doesn't have to be raw) is much more versatile than light denim.

    Very nice indeed. I think I would slightly lower button stance though.

    Very nice. Especially the jacket. The photography doesn't really allow to comment on colour coordination, but the pants look like a strange hue of beige (?) in this shot. The other things are, I suppose a pale blue OCBD and a brown knit tie? The main colour of the square also seems to be brown. But I really think the best thing here is the jacket; the only way to tell that you're probably quite tall is the railing behind you. Else, everything looks in proportion. Only thing I would change would be the size of the knot. Looks too small to me.

    NAS...I appreciate your constructive criticism, but I am not trying to set the world on fire with the fit of my jeans. I'm 5' 9.5" 195lbs, so I don't have a fitted jeans type of physique...nor do I want the tightness associated with that look.

    I think you could still do a lot better with the jeans, all the rest of your outfits are superb so it's a shame to see your casual look be let down by bad jeans.

    The color combination is smashing! I love the blue windowpane on the coat. [​IMG]

    I'm so depressed!!! Woe is me!! Haha. Note that this outfit only works with the white leather jacket (unworn, in the background) cause the shoes don't work with the hoodie alone.

    This is definitely a unique look. Never would have thought to build a look around a blue sports coat, black jeans, brown shoes & brown belt. I like the way you mixed things up...yet kept things all together. Good job.

    That is a fantastically ballsy suit pattern.

    And I am sure that it's merely the camera angle + lens distortion, but the hacking pockets paired with the apparent shortness of the jacket in these particular photos make you look like you have child-bearing hips.
    I am certain that you don't.

    One is not truly a Senior Member of StyleForvm until they have had this comment made on their denim.

    The pants are brushed (heavy) cotton in light brown (or dark tan). The shirt is a blue stripe OCBD. Tie is brown cashmere, but not solid, there is a lot "flecking" or melange, some navy, some burnt orange, but basically brown. The square is silk, dull green ground with blue and orange figures.

    Very generous of you to assume I don't. Some distortion plus me pitching backwards, but I have noticed that hacking pockets tend to have that effect in photos. I normally tuck my pocket flaps in as a result. I guess it isn't so noticeable in real life though, never received a comment like that. I have had other SF members point it out in photos though.

    yfyf, the cut and silhouette of your outfits are always immaculate.

    I had noticed it on some photos of mine as well. When I shot photos at hip level of suits with hacking pockets, the lens distortion always made me look hip heavy. Moreover, I remember you selling old suits of yours that were 36-38 at the largest. Generally, fat men don't fit into said sizes. Btw, did you ever sell that blue sharkskin suit you had up so many moons ago?
