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 Pliny had Victor's photographer he would get at least forty thumbs for every fit.

    The above point is probably true, though if any of us had Victor's photographer, our thumb count would be boosted, and were we to have Victor's photographer, his wardrobe, and his muscle tone, we'd all be making 40 thumbs for every fit. :nodding:

    I'd like a blue shirt there - from the waist up, the palette of an insurance claims office. All excellent pieces, but when you need to see grey trousers for a little color, something is amiss

    Suit for the last day of the semester. Excuse the unsightly bulge caused by my wallet in my jacket pocket; it's full of everything except money.

    Thanks for posting. This is a lot better, in terms of fit, than what I was posting when I started here, and keeping the color palette simple was a good idea. I hope you'll take this as an invitation to keep posting.

    Tie and shirt don't go together, to my eye. I think you could wear that shirt with a block striped tie, or with some printed/non-linear pattern, but there's a lot of blue lines of similar scale fighting each other right now. Not sure from this picture if the hank adds or detracts.

    The trousers are too dark for the jacket, and the shoes are too light for the trousers. It's tough to wear jackets in that color range, but I find a dark enough khaki (such that there's a noticeable contrast) works alright, as does the right light-to-mid gray. The jacket itself doesn't do it for me -- the lapels are skinny, and the color isn't all that wearable. But it doesn't fit badly, and in the right application it'll look really good. You may find it works best without a tie.

    What are the trousers? My guess is navy cotton. They've got a bit of excess in the upper thigh, but a crease might take care of that.

    I think the shirt collar doesn't work with the jacket lapel. The lapels are very narrow, and very high-notched. The shirt collar points down way below the notch, and is meaty enough to draw attention to the undersized lapels. I like the shirt, actually. May I ask who made it?

    Everything that YRR wrote about this post was spot on. I would add, for a quick fix, a solid white or blue shirt would improve this 100% Patch pockets are a nice touch for a casual jacket. Keep posting.
