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.

    No to the tie, and no to the belt (which is lizard, BTW). The belt would look good with Wranglers and some cowboy boots, it has no place with this fit.

    I knew that was a BCBG tie as soon as I saw it. I have one in a different colorway, as did a friend of mine.

    And what Mike said.

    Right I gave it another go with camera at eye-height. Not sure if it helps?

    Maybe I've just got child bearing hips [​IMG]

    Also wore another jacket for comparison.

    Lovely fits, but, man, you have a prominent case of mismatched shoulders. All of your jackets look crooked. Are you a tennis player?

    Jacket: PRL
    Shoes: Carmina

    Very nice.

    As promised, off out for a walk in the warm sunshine, and then tea with a friend after:

    Quoted for bravery. [​IMG]

    Da truth [​IMG]



    The contrast between the shirt and the jacket is too low in the first pic, i prefer the second look.



    Nice one.



    I´m not a fan of the sweater underneath the jacket, rest is casual done right.

    Taken when in garden mood:

    Love this combo, spoozy!

    I've done this combo a few times before but I like it. Don't think I'll be able to get a whole lot more wear out of this or my other flannel suit since it doesn't really fit very well and I doubt my shoulders are going to shrink in size any time soon. Didn't notice the knot until I took pics and too lazy to bother fixing it.

    You do orange and gray better than anyone I've seen.

    Back to work, and back to the heat after the respite that was NYC. It was so nice to walk around comfortably all day in Manhattan in a suit, and not be hot once.

    Oh well, have a good one.

    Gangsta! Very nice! I definitely like your fits even better now that you show your face for perspective.

    [​IMG]
    Awesome. I wish you posted more often.

    Nice! Very nice![​IMG]

    Thanks!

    I appreciate the feedback. I don't know where I got eel, your right it is lizard, will probably go with your advice and keep it for more casual attire.

    Wow what a contrast to NM - "March 2011 ranked as the third driest in the last 117 years." [​IMG]

    On me that would probably be a noble but failed attempt but you pull this off nicely.

    Any details about this? I really like both the shirt and tie. Do you run your own clothing co?

    At least you have the right shoes on for it. Stay dry!

    Good pose, crusty.

    I think sitting pics go wrong more often than right. Fred## and nii have shown good examples, but the risk of failure is high, IMO. I will admit pics without shoes on (yes, people still do that) are even worse. (Is this a "just saying" moment?)

    We're supposed to get 5+ more inches of rain between now and Wednesday, and if the river rises 10 more feet like they say it could, it'd put it in the top ten all time floods. Not catastrophic, but still enough to make things difficult.

    Yes, online retail (www.marshallanthony.com) at the moment of mainly neckwear crafted by my own hand. I personally craft neckties, bowties, handkerchiefs, and braces. PM me for more info or item specific inquiry. I'm still a newbie on the forum getting into the swing of things. [​IMG]

    Really clean and good looking site. Some lovely stuff there.

    Nice hair

    I don't get the love for Fred's photos. He seems to get unanimous praise for his pics which appear to show beautiful suit fabrics and nice shirt, tie and shoe combinations (in a nicely appointed pad) but it's impossible to tell how they fit with him always being sat down.
    As for the chairs, my parents had black vinyl versions of them in the seventies and they should remain in the seventies!
