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.

    If it is too close -- and I'm not sure it is -- it's right on the razor. There is something jarring about the way the pattern of the tie contacts the pattern in the lapels, but to be perfectly honest, it only came into specific relief when I went back to your question. Could have even snuck a fifth pattern into the band on the watch... Damn fine, I say.

    Thank you, @Academic2 . I will live with the angled-to-shoulder look for a while and see how I like it. I suppose that I will probably be fussing around with my pocket squares for the rest of my life, which is not necessarily a bad way to entertain myself.

    I had a cab driver in my hometown once ask me if I was English, simply because I don't sound like the typical Ocker Aussie :confused:

    It´s only a number. I will reach the age of 40 this year, so who cares?

    Discussions about the merits of the tie and the lapel flower aside, what's going on with the bottom half?!

    I think those are DR-made Filsons, but as for the pants...

    Oh, no! For the first time ever, I hate your clothes! Jacket fit/ cut not up to your usual perfection, the yellow shirt....yeesh!

    Had to wake up too early this morning... My love affair with knit ties continues, even though circumstances demand me to only wear 'boring' navy and gray suits at the moment.

    [​IMG] I think the proportions are off. The tie is slim, the lapels are wide, and the jacket is roomy in the waist and arms. I'm not crazy in retrospect with the tie and jacket pattern. I initially had a solid burgundy knit tie on. I'm super low on clean shirts so this yellow thing made an appearance. I really need to do laundry.

    my God man, the other way! less square visible against the lapel. s'posed to angle up to echo the angle of the lapel itself. [​IMG]

    (really it's not that big a deal)



    I guess to 99.99% of the population it means nothing that someone's wearing slubby silk with flannel, but to me it looks.. suboptimal. The [​IMG] is strong in me, but I'm trying to resist.

    Called in sick today.. but had a meeting I had to bolt to. Trying on the new (to me) shoes.

    White balance is off on the pants.. first pic (belt pic) is good. Cell pics. What can I say.
