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.

    @upr_crust : another elegant look today. Would that shirt be considered a "Bengal Stripe"?

    @Sander : making it look effortless. I think the backdrop helps tremendously!

    @Murlsquirl : sharp. Just sharp.

    Shugz, in a moment (!) of insomnia I was dwelling on doing a tie gallery. Is that what you mean or just a single shot of the stable? :)

    Thanks, Elio. The waistcoat was the motivation for buying the suit, as it happens.



    Pattern-wise, I believe that it would be considered a Bengal stripe, but the striping is woven, not printed, as it is normally with a Bengal stripe. Tyrwhitt sold me the shirt as a 'satin stripe", FWIW.

    If Cleav does a tie gallery then I will have to as well. Although I cannot say that mine will be as close to as spectacular as his will be.

    Naturally I was already working on it! [​IMG] Incidentally, this process has shown me that I now have over 100 ties. I don't even think it's close to overkill either.

    Wut? Ties are boss. Why don't you want to be the boss, Noodles!?

    I just sold 20+ ties at a garage sale. Mostly old silk hella-wide monstrosities, too-skinny Ben Shermany/Penguin type stuff, and a few ok ones that I just wouldn't wear anymore.

    Now I'm down to maybe 35 and can think of 10+ off the top of my head that I'd like to add. I only have a handful of suit/jacket options, so ties and squares keep it more interesting. Plus I buy a lot of ~$20 pre-owned ties on ebay.
