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.

    Have you lost some weight? I think you looked a tad more elegant when more robust, but that's just me. I also like your older suits more then the recent "skinny" Suit Supply ones, but just a matter of (personal) taste.
    The cream, beige sportcoats I haven't seen you posting them in a while which always looked flattering. Nice casual outfit.

    Seeing as they posted one right after another, neither of them has taken their excessity it's to the point of being unique. Also, what is excessity? Do hipsters buy their excessities in the excessity department so that they can excessitize?

    I'm all about the simple bare excessities.

    Seriously, poor form to pick at someone's small error in their second language (how many of us write in a forum in a language that's not our own, and flawlessly?), but actually I'm delighted by the accidental invention of this word. "Excessities" is really what SF is all about: what we consider to be "simple", "getting the basics right" and indeed, "classic and timeless" - the mere baseline, that even in most formal office environments would be considered a vain excess: our "real ancient madders", carefully-selected merino suitcloth, our obsessively-sourced welted shoes and our care in choice of tailor, gorge and buttoning point. Vain, obsessive, extravagant and irrelevant to the many, and yet somehow vital to the few.

    These are our excessities. Brilliant word, well done.

    Yeah, I felt like a dick as I wrote it, but I too enjoy the accidental word.

    Ah, we all do it. And it's great, isn't it?

    I mean, I'm not saying that our blurring of what would be excessive to most into necessity for us, is actually wrong. I think it's more a matter of knowing something, being unable to un-know it. No matter what happens in life, I'm pretty confident I'll never buy a pair of glued-together shoes, or a jacket with massive armholes, or polyester trousers. It's not snobbery...it's just progress, isn't it?
