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.

    Would rather see proper full length pics, to be honest.

    Thanks!

    Yes, Siena (and also Lucca) is beautiful, but Firenze much more beautiful! Hehe yeah, I'm also thinking about going there for the next palio in 2 weeks.

    You're looking to move? If so, good luck! (I trust you've already identified your future fitpic spot...)
    I didn't thumb because I can't really see anything other than that it's a dark suit. I can actually make out more from Justin's pictures...

    Of course, Firenze is a beautiful city, but i really like the charm of Sienna. I'm remember a delicious pasta plate with wild boar in a little restaurant between two hills.

    Don't forget to take pictures if you go to Palio.

    That's fair, but whether it is a navy suit, gray, or charcoal I think it would look good.

    Thanks for the good wishes, and no, fitpic spot hasn't been chosen yet. As it is, the place needs significant renovations before we move in, so you'll be stuck with the current fitpic spot for some months to come. However, when the move happens, I may have the Empire State Building as my background :).

    Yes, I agree I'm struggling to get a great amount of detail into my pictures at the moment. I'll try some different angles and lighting, but I may have to resort to a better camera at some point.

    Taken this morning before heading into the office...its supposed to be a 110 in the valley today (which sucks because its been a cool 99 for most of last week) so this really light weight suit (Corneliani Mantua) has really come through..

    IME the single best thing you can do to improve your pics is to understand lighting. If you can figure out how to make it work for you it can improve your pics by quite a lot.

    @chocsosa I like it a lot, except for the PS fold. It looks silk to me and because of that I feel like it would be much better in a puff. All in all, a great look though.

    If you keep saying things I agree with, we're going to need some proof that this is the Real Caustic[​IMG]. :)

    Lucan, a better camera will do better in poor light conditions, but you should be able to get a good enough picture with a phone camera if you have light.

    I suspect that we agree on far more things than we disagree on. It's just that when we disagree I am always right.

    It is silk.. I typically would have it in a poof but I was trying to take pics really quick before heading to work, so I forgot to get it that way.. I have done it now so all is well! Thanks for the words Caustic!

    A puff would help, in that I think you need to see more of the white in the square, but ideally another square entirely here is probably a better move - one that isn't as matchy with the tie and provides more contrast to the suit. YMMV.

    Probably a white square would have been a a safe choice (albeit boring)...you work with what you have and this is the best square that I had for the this look..the colors might be very similar but I feel the patterns in the P.S set it apart enough.. but as you said JC, YMMV
