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.

    Ivar, it is Not a costume, it is my style, and your choice of words are quite condescending.

    I think your style looks great, but in your pictures it seems like your hat is a lot bigger than your face. I can see how that makes it look like a costume. Have you tried wearing a smaller hat?

    Here we go again... I think it is better that I don't waste Styleforum space and clog up the forum with the age old big hat debate. It was a good run. Thank you and carry on you wonderful stylish gentlemen . I will continue to wear my big hats in real life.

    You could choose to ignore the hat size comments and keep posting pics. Please, do [​IMG]

    I've never seen nor partaken in a big hat debate. Sorry if I struck a nerve, but you should be able react normally to a mere suggestion of wearing a smaller hat. Why post pictures here if you don't want a critique?

    I wish you luck in your search, but will warn you that the tie that I am sporting today is some 18-20 years old, I believe. Patterns for Ferragamo (and Hermes) these days are much smaller-scale - the whimsy is only apparent much closer up.

    What do you think about cotton turtleneck shirts? I found a blue one at a local thrift shop that fits me great. I washed it last night and I'm wearing it right now. It's not too warm and I get "the look" anyway. I like wearing it and have never noticed anyone else around here wearing one. [​IMG]
    I'll find at least one wool turtleneck at a thrift or get a new one at Jos A Bank (maybe this weekend).

    I saw a real cool black cat the other morning sitting on a sidewalk relaxing in the morning sun. Just his eyes were peering out and it looked awesome. That's probably the kind of cat I'd have.

    Why post critiques if you haven't even read as far back as four days ago, which was when the last big hat debate started?

    Just let' em say what they want, Tibor. Most of us know you have your own style and this is the Styleforum, after all...

    Naturally I don't read this thread every day. Like I said, I apologize for hurting his feelings, and I understand the hat is off-limits and will refrain from commenting on it in the future. Maybe he should state in his sig that we're not allowed to talk about his hat, so newcomers won't make the same mistake as I did? Apparently people take critiques a lot more personally than they're meant here, so let's not waste any more time on this matter and continue with posting great pictures.

    :cloud: please not to associate me with that awful team.

    no hate.


    tibor, my dude, dont let the haters win. do your thing, and keep on keepin on. your style is great and its ernest, and you should stick around. most people here enjoy your unique flair, and those that dont arent worth responding to or worrying about. if someone wants to think it a costume, thats their deal, not for you to worry about.
