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.

    Thanks AAS. I agree that a burgundy tie would be great with this. Wanted to try the green, as per @heldentenor's suggestion in the GNAT thread.

    I need to learn a bit of post processing skill to better represent the colours. The closer up shot of the tie makes it look very warm, but is not what it's like in real life.

    Thanks

    Also jacket doesn't need a press. Adds some character. I really love the fit.

    @SprezzaTrash , I keep waiting for an "Ethan and friends have a vintage Christmas at the Mission Inn" or an "Ethan and friends take a vintage trip at the Orange Empire Railroad Museum" post.

    I am sorry that I cannot help you with this. The compass and watch chain were something I found among my late father's effects after his death. The pocket watch was a present from my current husband (an inexpensive mechanical watch, brand name London - worth vastly more as an expression of affection than as a piece of jewelry).



    It's good to be back among the ambulatory.



    I entirely blame Paul Stuart's. The suit was featured prominently in the fall 2013 catalog, and it was bought with my 40th high school class reunion in mind - I wanted to look totally unlike the poor schnook I was in high school. I believe that I succeeded in that regard. I was also married in today's suit, albeit with a different waistcoat.



    If you are referring to me, thank you. If not, my apologies for the presumption.

    I think what he means is, he's not European.

    The Friday Challenge is "holiday". With this in mind, I've attempted to integrate as much green into today's attire as is humanly possible, for good or ill.

    Overcoat, sports jacket, shirt, tie, PS, waistcoat - BB
    Boots - Paul Stuart
    Hat - Tesi
    Scarf - Johnston's of Elgin

    Thank you, Chawk. As for the "how does one do it?" - one lives a very long time, buys a lot of clothes, figures out what works and doesn't work, gets rid of the "doesn't work", and wears the rest. Simple, really - in principle. Less so in practice, and it's a constant learning process, which brings its own pleasures.

    Just superb.

    I've been looking for a moss green fedora. That one looks very nice, though I'm not familiar with the brand.

    I've had the hat for at least a decade. There used to be a hat shop near the northern end of Nassau St. in lower Manhattan that had hats both of reasonable quality and price, from which I bought any number of chapeaux. Unhappily, the shop is no longer there.

    As for the brand, it is my only hat from them - I really can't posit much about the quality of their goods, other than the one hat of theirs which I own, which is OK, if not stellar.



    My pelvic fracture was miraculously cured by the ceremony of the Laying on of Smoked Salmon, at the Shrine of Zabar's (with a little whitefish salad on the side - you shouldn't want you should go hungry, nu?) A true Festivus miracle.
