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.

    I don't have near enough occasions to put on a proper kit. I've been wanting to participate in this great thread...so here it is. (I realize I need to sort out my photo system)

    ... Feedback is, of course, encouraged.

    I don't think anyone who's seen my photos would ever argue that I have anything but love for taupes, sands, and ecrus.

    Sadly yes. And the thing is, once you put on a jacket that fits flawlessly, you'll notice the how badly everything else looks. Sinking money into used clothes is a teacher many of us here learned from.

    What would you guys change if you did? Went for a classic blue & brown combo. (I'm still perfecting the dimple)

    @offset The tie is the problem here. Too loud; try plain rust, burgundy or navy.
    The socks are too casual.
    The rest I like, but it would be better to say anything about the fit if you posted a picture where we can see all of you.

    Well, to each his own. It's a pretty classic detail, fwiw.

    Are you using a fish-eye lense, the photo proportions are weird. Also it appears that the shirt is too small for you, as the top button is not done up but it is tight at the neck. Can you button it?

    Also, can anyone explain why when I quote other people's posts with photos that they are coming out in really low quality?

    From the time I began posting in this forum, I have always desired the "grey flannel suit." After much searching and selling a suit that just didn't work, I think I have found my grail. The sleeves were altered but may still be too long, my tailor has an issue with that apparently, but the shirt sleeves may have shrunk/gotten too short for my frame. Anyway, I would love advice on a pocket square to go with this and any advice on what colors to pair with this suit (probably anything but, I would love some inspiration.
    Suit- R. Caruso Sartorio Parma
    Shirt-BB
    Tie-BB
    Shoes-AE Bostons
