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.

    You're making me look stupid referencing and recommending your fits!

    You were careful to qualify your recommendation as limited to my application of blue and gray. Your credibility is intact.

    I think it's a great look:

    Monkeyface also posted several pages ago a navy suit, paired with a patterned navy grenadine, white double bar stripe tie from Drake's. I thought it worked exceptionally well (and it got more than 10 likes).

    Yup. I saw that combo a week ago and def. Think it is a good combo...grey suit and navy. My next suit will def. be a grey one (dark).

    I bleed conservative. And yes, I work at the Capitol Hill in Washington, DC. The only time I'd wear a pale blue shirt is only the blue suit from this morning. I usually wear white shirt, navy tie (never solid), and navy blue suit or dark blue suit. That's my uniform. I cannot survive going to work dressed the way some of you, even formal, do.

    Thanks Rudals. Navy on navy can work beautifully, as in Connery's suit. Some excellent other examples include:

    Chocsosa:

    Monkeyface:

    The navy on navy outfits by Chocsosa and Monkeyface were among the very rare posts that have received over 20 likes.

    It's very informative to see what outfits on this thread have received over 20 likes. It's quite rare. The outfit has to be beautiful to reach that level. Each of us has his stylistic idiosyncrasies, so it's a good idea to take any one poster's opinion, including my own, with a grain of salt. But to reach 20 likes or more, the outfit has to have a broader and deeper elegance that reaches beyond any individual bias. Even if we wouldn't wear the outfit ourselves, it's instructive to find out why it's beauty is recognized by so many different people. What's the design principle, thought, or theme behind it? What might be learned from it, even if we would dress differently?

    Might I make a suggestion to the moderators that it would be helpful if there were a search function to find posts that have at least 20 likes? It would be a great sartorial education.

    Stuffy conservative can definitely work well when done properly. Nothing wrong with it at all.
