    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 Really like that suit.

    It's really warm today...about 40C (100F+) and 75% humidity. Definitely a linen day. And perhaps one for a little understatement, colour-wise*, before the Org's battle of the ties tomorrow....

    I think you have misunderstood my post, perhaps without the context of the ones that preceded it: I was railing against just such nonsense, so in answer to your question: no, I do not believe that such a thing is either possible or desirable. :)

    Señor Crust, those shoes are doppelgängers for the ones you used to have.

    Mimo, my thumbs-up does not include the socks.

    First off, thanks to Steffen and Mimo for your kind comments.

    Mister Butch, today's shoes are quite similar to the BB Peals, though the toes are more chiseled, and the lines slightly more elongated than the BB's were. The day that I bought today's shoes, I had schlepped two other pairs of Finsburys (for my partner) with me through the Musee d'Orsay, and then had found the shop Septieme Largeur, without a proper map, and had figured out that the continuation of the Rue St. Lazare was one block over from where it should have been, due to the interference of the Place de la Trinite. I ended up schlepping five pairs of shoes with me through the Metro at rush hour, from the Odeon district to the Gare du Nord, and then through customs on Eurostar (one for myself, two for my partner, and two (from Septieme Largeur) for Bernoulli, with whom I had had lunch at the Ritz in London the day previous). It was quite a day.

    I like shoes. But maybe not enough for all that. :)

    It wasn't strictly for the shoes, it was as much (if not more) for the two other gentlemen, both of whom were truly grateful for my efforts.

    I have a thrifted silk sport coat that I'm going to get altered- it's "boxy" looking now. I'm hoping i can wear it this summer. The suit looks great, David!
    Nice except for the tennis shoes. [​IMG]
    I need a sport coat like that! [​IMG]

    What looks pink in this picture is actually a light lavender.

    From the close-up in my monitor this looks gray. Nothing bad with it, I like this a lot. I just would like to hear to those that
    "criticized" estitchy and Spoo for using gray in combination with light brown / tan or whatever the colour is, to criticize this colour combo. [​IMG]
