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.

    Great outfit, your best thus far, in my opinion. I liked how you inserted a twist (the light green shirt) in what is a classic combination (blue jacket with cream trousers). I would like to make two suggestions for you: try to cuff your trousers (more casual and a quirk of mine) and buy some good shoes (try Meermin's Linea Maestro).
    Your shirt sleeve does not looks too long (especially considering what I have seen from you so far), however, your jacket sleeves do looks to be a bit short (within reason, but a bit short nonetheless). I usually test my shirt sleeve length extending my arm in front of me, the cuffs should be as if they were not extended.

    Another day of wearing all blue. For some reason I feel light blue shirts are more conservative than white, because they create less of a stark contrast between the shirt and the tie.

    Knit tie probably kills the conservative part

    What's IBM? You mean the company, or is it some kind of #menswear abbreviation I'm not familiar with?

    I doubt your banter offends anyone, it keeps things lively. This thread wouldn't even have half of the posts if it wasn't for all the banter and the snark.

    Still don't know what that company has to do with conservative business wear. Engineers are not particularly known for the way they dress.

    In ye olden tymes, IBM employees were required to wear white shirts. I almost wrote "male employees" but realized that would be redundant.

    Thanks for the explanation guys, I do remember reading something about their dresscode a long time ago, but my mind just didn't make the connection, too jaded by SF abbreviations I guess. White shirts are more formal, but they're definitely not more conservative, they stand out too much for that.

    Besides, light blue shirts look a hell of a lot better on most people, especially on those with blue eyes. Heck, I wouldn't mind wearing light blue shirts for the rest of my career. I kind of get where Foo was coming from with his OneShirtTM.

    Long, long ago, IBM was notorious for having a strict dress code that required employees wear a grey suit, white shirt, and black shoes.

    BD is "classic" eastcoast style i thought.
    Missing PS, hmm, i don't think, that this is a reason for a non conservative Outfit.
    I agree with the loafer, that's not really a classic dress-shoe. But imho it's an awesome shoe for summer, with or without a suit.
