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 have a few blue ones, and a lavender/purple one.

    The lavender I usually wear under a gray sweater, the blue sometimes casually or with a solid navy, or navy pindot tie.

    I like the colors, but I think the tie bar is too high. I don't like the look of the tie bar being wider than the tie. I usually wear my tie bar between the 3rd and 4th button hole. It usually not visible when I'm wearing a jacket.

    I think this look is too formal to wear without a tie. I would recommend more casual shoes in brown, a non-white non-tv folded pocket square, and a non-white shirt, if you want to wear this suit without a tie.

    dont love the PoW, EFV, but the more generally casual vibe makes it better imo.

    I'm going to a presentation of minimalistic art and music, I'm purposely trying to go as simple and clean as possible. [​IMG]

    Why does that matter? Are you a piece of art? Just kidding, but I think a black knit tie would be simple and clean, and would complete the look.

    I'm starting to hear the death rattle in the good taste thread (since they are starting to talk about death explicitly).

    One issue was distinguishing that thread from the WAYWRN thread here. So it occurred to me that there might be an idea for a new good taste thread that involves currently active SF members (the old guard can chime in). The thread would be something inspired by fits here where those fits meet some minimal "good" condition (e.g. based on thumbs). This would depend on folks reposting their fits when it meets with some subjective acclaim in the thread whereupon others in the second thread then can discuss more fine details. We do it occasionally, but to have a devoted thread, fed by judiciously chosen posts from here, where critiques can still be made might be instructive. Few fits are perfect, and even with a great fit, there are alternatives that might be of interest.

    The point is a thread to discuss things (we do this here, but not a place for really active discussion).

    What say you? I think some subset of the main posters like Pingson, Stitches, Claghorn, Cleav, Mimo, CP and several others would have to take the lead (they'd have some authority to get it started). I'd like to see more of this in SF.

    I agree that his is too high, but if yours is not seen when the jacket is on, what is the point? Isn't the bar to secure the tie, and if your jacket being buttoned over it already secures it at that point, the bar would be as redundant as wearing one with a 3 piece suit.

    Exactly. And since your jacket should always be buttoned, a tie bar is always redundant! [​IMG]

    Not at all. I don't wear tight jackets. Even with my jacket buttoned, there is plenty of room for my tie to wiggle around and get out of place. The tie bar keeps it in place. I don't wear my jacket all day, so my tie bar is visible at times. I also don't think a tie bar is superfluous under a 3 vest or a cardigan. A tie bar can add some extra body to a tie that just lies there. I sometimes wear a tie bar under a vest or cardigan for that purpose. Lastly, why should your jacket always be buttoned? I often wear mine unbuttoned.
