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.

    Yay for a long weekend!

    Boating stripes and cricket whites. And, yep, another cravat.

    No tie today, but the watch deserves a look-see.

    Wow, you love that boating jacket. Was this for a special occasion? I still somewhat regret letting the pink linen Gatsby suit go by. Pretty sure I would have used it as separates only, though. Did manage to grab some PRL pink linen pants for next Caribbean trip. (recurring compliment: awesome watch collection!) Cheers!

    The special occasion for Andy is life. He'll wear that whether he's going out to dinner or running to the mini mart to pick up a sixer. Awesome.

    Or, you can do what I do. Ask someone to take your picture and show them how to do it. I have a very simple camera, a Panasonic Lumix DMC-FP8. It's smaller than most cell phones and even people who don't speak any language I do can take pictures with it.

    I wish it were sunny in San Francisco today, Gus. I wore flannel in the city.

    Dear Andy,

    While going through recent posts I saw your outfit of several days ago when you sported a cravat/ascot and now again today and I have to tell you, you look magnificent! You wear a cravat well! It truly "fits" you. I am a huge fan of cravats/ascots, and it is nice to see others beginning to appreciate them, too.

    I thank @GusW for actually getting a proper picture of the jacket. My photo taking skills sucks and according to @sugarbutch he asked "how do you fuck up taking pictures so bad" because I clearly suck at it.

    Dig the MF square. Not sure why they seem to have such little fanfare on here...though I can't say I love the recent price hike.

    Justin, I was one of the people who was amazed to see, in the "lifestyle" shot Gus posted, that you're actually fairly slim.

    The quality of your garment choices and colour/texture matching is not in question, but those selfies you post just don't do the fit of your clothes any favours at all. I suspect you would easily double your thumbs if you got hold of a decent camera and asked someone else to take your shots, outdoors, during your lunch break.

    A basic understanding of photographic technique is key, as is a decent camera/lens combo with the ability to set parameters manually. (That way, YOU set the camera up and all Muggins has to do is press the button.)

    That's how I do it for the majority of my shots. I pick a spot, set the camera up, then give it to them and say "Hold it at such-and-such a height, make sure you get all of me in, and make sure you half-depress the shutter to allow it to focus before full-depressing."

    No problem if it's tilted, off-centre, and poorly framed. As long as you stand both Muggins and yourself in the right spot and the shot is in focus, most other issues can be fixed in post-processing.

    @VirgilVerne , the tie is wrong here - it bears no relation to anything else in the outfit. Seems like a semi-casual day tie, whereas the rest of the fit screams "evening".

    Burn the shirt. It's just wrong, full stop.

    Yeah was hoping for the Indigo on the shirt to match with the blue prints on the tie - did NOT work

    I'm sorry Verne, but that shirt will never work with anything, ever. At least not in a CM context.
