    Thanks. I love it. It has such a rough looking texture but a super soft hand. It will be getting a lot of wear.

    We cant disable that function for specific users.

    Honestly, I never thought that good photos, of all things, would a source of complaints. There is a reason that we don't have a thumbs down function, since we want to keep the tone positive, but it is surprising to me that people would not want to see well photographed outfits, or would begrudge that others enjoy good photographs. imo, a good photo does add something to an outfit, like good posture and a strong bearing. This being from someone who takes terrible photos. I am actually okay with a DSLR, but give me a cellphone and ask me to take a selfie, and you are asking for a Loch Ness monster style photo.

    I personally love your photos. Really glad that you are back.

    I think it's much ado about nothing. I didn't see anyone actually complain about good photos or ask for more bad ones

    Thanks for the prompt reply :)

    So I just please all: Please do not put on my photo "thumbs-up"

    This is my principled position. I just want to learn and to participate in discussions of the subject. And I don't want anyone to infringe.

    Thank you for understanding!

    P.S. For my text posts this request not apply :)

    Looking crisp, CM and Murl.

    I really dont get why anyone would be mad about great pictures. Totally beyond me. Dont we all like pretty things?

    You and Fok have mentioned galleries a few times. Is there an easy way to add embedded photos into a personal gallery? I'm not seeing it if there is.

    Re photos:

    My contribution was meant to be read as mild sarcasm mixed with a bit self deprecation, while also voicing slight concern regarding this forum becoming overly dependent on professional photography (and Victor was not the exclusive target of these remarks).

    That said, I certainly prefer quality photos to poor ones. But tend to try and gauge the poor photos with a 'grain of salt' or something like a suspension of disbelief, which might result in concentrating on limited aspects of the fit accordingly. In either case (exquisite photos vs shitty iPhone ones), I am less a fan of staged scenarios, but that's just subjective.

    What I would find quite interesting is if posters with the ability to post high-level photos, were to include a few candid phone selfies of the same fits in tandem with the pro stuff...

    I find ALL of the posts useful and encourage all to keep on keeping on, or something...

    Very cool, country chic (old films). Superb!

    (By the way - a great example of how to use the phone, you can make a very beautiful and the winning photo. This is - what should learn …)
