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.

    ^ Don't keep us in suspense, Incontro. How much of this fit was B&T?

    This is the last of my photographed fits on archive so now we must wait for the next occasion where I dress up before I can post more pictures. I suspect that this look will be too antiquated for most of you and it will therefore be very interesting to see your reactions.

    The suit is german and from before 1910; my guess is ~1905. The waistcoat is from the 20s and I probably should've buttoned the bottom button. The hat is the same as in the navy db outfit that I posted yesterday, but in these pictures it's reblocked and that's why it's much smoother.

    Here's an older pic of me in the same suit. I would've preferred a navy cap but this was the only one that I had on hand.

    Sorry I forgot to say this looks smashing.
    The combo is perfect.

    Really like vintage suits and you wear them with the right amount of attitude. Not an easy thing to do. Could so easily look like fancy dress.

    OK this makes perfect sense now. You are deeply into vintage clothing, paying great attention to detail and authenticity. I withdraw my previous comments as I can see that you would not be wanting to compromise the integrity of these garments in any way.

    Having previously restored old houses and furnished them in period style, and also expended some effort restoring old cars, I can really appreciate this. Kudos. Great photos by the way.

    An exemplar of timeless style. The cloth and cut are given just enough room to express themselves.

    Haha, I'll rewear it soon.

    I found another floral tie that's darker than the last one and it pairs perfectly with a cream linen jacket and light-ish shirt. I think clags had liked the tie last time, but I had an unfortunate choice of shirt.

    That looks great and you inadvertently made me realize the last World Cup in SA was in winter not summer.
