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.

    You do? I don't.


    Or, as they'd say in German "The Lederhosen Period"


    This reinforced my thoughts that I should just get rid of this shirt. I've struggled to make it work since I bought it three years ago, maybe wearing it 3-4 times, because it just doesn't work with anything I own.

    This attempt at multiple patterns was its last hurrah, methinks.

    Shirt would be swell with:

    1. A solid-ish jacket, no tie, perhaps with a sweater vest under a jacket as well.

    2. Under a v-neck sweater worn without a jacket.

    3. Just worn alone casually. But with pants.

    The shirt is fine - you just need to pair it with a simple, maybe grenadine (navy/burgundy) tie and a basic grey or navy suit. Or maybe no tie at all and a sport coat

    Some of my own examples:

    I see your angle here.

    Possibly this angle too.

    Pants required? Dealbreaker.

    These are great examples of patterned shirts looking good with solid suits.

    But this shirt itself has a dammed pink overcheck that just looks out of character with just about everything else I have. I bought it during my more whimsical days, and it's been vexing me ever since. Maybe if I had a pink cashmere tie…

    Lufty - the shirt is fine, I think the the 800 lb elephant in the corner may be the tie.

    Which is why I mentioned navy or burgundy ties, not brown. It would work.

    Took second in a field of 15. As one judge put it:

    It was a beautiful thing.


    I'll give it one last shot with each. I remain skeptical, but will report back.

    Wasn't offended in the slightest. I looked completely fucktarded, which was by design (toddler-friendly clothing) yesterday, and by accident most every other day.

    Carry on, noob.
