    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.

    Great picture and story. I would add that those same people often extend their bizarre comments to cover other aspects of an outfit...

    So, what socks do you wear, if any when it is 90F?

    Thank you both. It's a tricky shirt for me – the wide collar and extremely smooth poplin steered me into thinking it would work in this context, but I think if I had looked at it from this point of view, I would have thought better of it.

    I think the problem I'm running into is that everything I know about dressing in practice is basically country clothes, since I've dressed that way for years. Now that I'm trying to dress more formally – without taking things back to the absolute basics – I've lost my way a bit. It doesn't help that I've built a wardrobe focused on a slightly lower level of formality/urbanity than I'm starting to wear.

    So I appreciate all the feedback. It's a slightly tricky process.

    I also noticed that I, awkwardly enough, wrote "gingham" where I obviously meant to write tattersall. :embar:

    @Mr Knightley asked if I wear socks when it's 90F. The answer is yes, here's a picture (wearing socks) on a day a few months ago when it was around 110F.

    The problem with all the bizarre comments (often made by people who never post pictures of themselves) is that the bizarre comments sometime discourage people from posting pictures of themselves. I like seeing what people all over the world are wearing but when you compare the total number of people on Earth to the number of people who post pictures here, it's only a tiny percentage of the Earth's total population, so I don't like to see anyone get discouraged from posting pictures.

    It's also hard to understand why some people make bizarre comments about the pictures. Everyone has a different size screen, has different settings on their devices, and some people are colorblind, so the pictures never look like the actual person.

    I used to work for The Metropolitan Museum Of Art. The pictures in the catalogs (taken by the best photographers with the best equipment and lighting) never looked as good as the actual items in the exhibits. This was even more so with three dimensional items, like fashion or sculpture.

    In retrospect I agree. I don't have a darker brown tie. I thought a black tie would work better but I didn't want to wear black shoes which in my mind is required with a black tie. Am I wrong in my thinking?

    PS. I really appreciate the feedback.

    Not precisely. Sometimes they wear socklets.
