    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.

    @FlyingMonkey Would it be right to say the larger the check the more casual a shirt becomes?

    I would like to thank you for summarizing my feedback to you and saving my typing effort. :cheers:




    The bolded statements, though emphatically presented, are just wrong. That big check is not mellow, and a cream or white shirt would have been infinitely preferable here. Monkey also gave you the right advice about how you might employ the shirt/tie combo in a flashy yet coherent way. Stop fighting it, man. LISTEN.

    I don't think there is anything wrong with it, it's more just a pet peeve of mine. With the top block as nice and formal is yours I always prefer to see nicer creased wool trousers along with it. I know many people do not agree with me, and that's just fine. It's just kind of something that I don't love.

    Ping - great look and even better facial expression.

    ---

    Clags - boring or not, I love it. And I think that all the darker blues work well together.

    ---

    Evilb - I will just say that I think yesterday's combo was a much greater success than today's.

    ---

    Steffen - That looks awesome. I really need a blue with gray or white window pain in my life.

    After Butler smiled in his pic up-thread, we needed something to restore order and bring harmony to the universe.....

    He called it a smile, but he makes Mona Lisa appear euphoric. I guess that is smiling for a butler.

    @pingson: lovely fit and an even better expression. Hope that is what you look like when papers are submitted for grading ( assuming you do that in between your research)

    On a completely unrelated note: Every time I see notjustties, I read it as not just titties. And I get confused because what's wrong with just titties?

    Today. No time for a full shot, and the lighting was pretty dreadful. [​IMG] [​IMG] I've been trying all week (and, indeed, well before) to work this tie into something for the FC -- particularly after CottonDocker's pale blue tie fit. Also, from the white shirt challenge, Pingson mentioned that a similarly pale blue tie might work with a pink shirt. So I tried it here. My concern then, as now, is that it's too pastel-y, too easter-egg-y. Isaia Barba Drake's/cashmere Unknown Trafalgar Santorelli Pantherella Alden

    Actually your expression @steffenbp11 is the one for submissions. The grading expression is [​IMG]

    If it weren't for the students the life of an academic would be awesome. If it weren't for the faculty the life of an academic administrator would be even better.

    " stitches: Who are you giving the evil eye ? Nice looking suit btw. Many will probably disagree, but I am not sure those shoes work with the rest of the outfit...Would like to see it with a black captoe for comparison...
