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.

    I've got two from Drakes, and both are amazing. I'm partial to Kent Wang as well. I also really want to try some of Vanda's. They are very, very reasonably priced there.

    the Drake's wool-silk are so compressible and dry [​IMG]

    Hober squares are quality but IMO too many tie-like designs- so have limited application

    at the risk of sounding like a twat, the Rubinaccis are the E G Cappelli of squares - for anyone who wants to fork out the big bucks. Beautiful soft thick rich silk, maybe 3-4 times the surface area of the Wangs, but compressible, versatile colors and superb design

    IMO the wang's are nice for colors but r small and on the thin side- still useful tho

    I don't think that your boots are "workwearish". Considering that you are, most likely, tramping through snow, slush, and ice, these boots are both practical and good-looking. They work well with your multi-patterned ensemble which looks very unified and balanced. Who is the maker of the boots?

    It does seem mad to spend that money on such a small thing. But that small thing has such a transforming effect on the big things. Sooner or later, I will also cave to the wonder of Drake's. In the mean time, my favourites are probably Shibumi's madder (maybe get the big size though), a Duchamp I got in the sale from Malford (awesome), and the very well-priced oddities from Kent Wang. The oddest of which is my "family" contribution today. Edit: and Mazarin socks from MCR, almost forgot.

    No full length today - was in a bit of a hurry this morning as I was very late. Something to do with staying up until 2am for an extended charity auction. Firstly, shill bidding the price up. Then bidding seriously after taking offence at the accusation of shill bidding while developing a growing affection for the lot in question. Which I've just emailed Shaya about buying anyway. Ho hum.

    Today's shirt is one the fabric of which I am very fond, but I don't wear it often, as it has button cuffs, rather than double cuffs. But, for today, I thought that I'd give it a whirl.

    Suit - New & Lingwood
    Shirt - BB
    Tie - Tyrwhitt
    PS - Robert Talbott
    Braces - Paul Stuart
    Shoes - Bergdorf Goodman house brand
    Overcoat - BB
    Scarf - New & Lingwood
    Hat - Selentino

    Per Flusser:

    The line of the trousers should follow the natural contours of the body, tapering slowly from hip to ankle. With a waist of 30 to 34 inches, the trousers should have legs with circumferences of 21 to 22 inches at the knees and 18 to 19 1/2 inches at the bottom. Such a description obviously eliminates all types of bell-, flair-, and straight-bottom trousers. These styles, which run counter to the natural lines of the body, call attention to themselves, often cutting the wearer off at the knees. This is especially damaging to someone of small stature, who ends up looking even shorter.

    Traditionally, the width of the bottom of a man's trousers was cut to balance the size of his shoe. This means that the width should generally correspond to three-quarters of the length of a man's shoe. The relationship between shoe and trouser bottom is also a convincing argument against having a trouser line that is anything but a slight natural taper.

    That square OR that tie, I think, but not both together. YMMV.




    Sunny outside, and yet still not enough light indoors. Hmm....

    Mimo those shoes are great!

    I need to wear more PS's but they just don't fly at my office sadly. After joining this forum I've realized a good 90% of my tie collection is obnoxious and too busy for SC's. I have some new ones on the way. Heres a recent E-thrift Hickey Freeman SC. Wasn't really sure what color shirt/tie combo to go with. And once I finish moving I'll have a proper camera setup to get better shots.
