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.

    There is nothing of particular note in today's attire, other than the fact that it is Thursday, and not a moment too soon.

    Thank you all for your comments from yesterday in re: smile/no smile, glasses/no glasses. An interesting experiment, but future posts will be limited to smile and glasses, unless one or both is forbidden by a Friday Challenge.

    @upr_crust I liked the mix of smile/forbidding. Either way you look like a Duke, or an Earl, whichever is better.

    Thank you, Lancaster. In the official pecking order of English nobility, dukes rank below princes, then it's marquesses, earls, viscounts, and barons, in that order, so I guess I look like a duke, in your estimation, at least. Unfortunately, looking like a duke, and having the estates of a duke are not equivalent states of being - I guess I will have to continue as I am, an aging corporate drone :).

    Reposted from the Friday Challenge, which was to dress like a Laurence Fellows Illustration. Here's my entry.

    [​IMG]

    1990's Corneliani jacket (thrifted), Custom denim spearpoint shirt from Natty Shirts, 1930's tie, 1990's wool sweater vest (thrifted), Polo RL trousers (thrifted), Florsheim imperials (thrifted)

    Can't believe I was able to thrift a Corneliani jacket (super soft virgin wool) that is almost a match for that 1930's one in the illustration. Mixing patterns like this is a great detail of the 1930's and I wish more guys out there embrace that! It should show that true 1930's-1940's style isn't dated and theres plenty learn from it.


    I also got my friend Spencer and a two other guys to join me in the challenge! You can see more details on my blog post.

    And what I will be wearing quite a lot in the nearest future - my first bespoke suit made by Krupa & Rzeszutko (family tailor manufacture originated in 1926 from Poznan, Poland).

    The custom is very nice. Is it dart-less in the front or are the darts just invisible from the picture? At first I was going to ask if you were getting some more waist suppression as the jacket appeared at little "sack-like" in the front. Then from the back, the waist suppression seems adequate. So, it took me a while focusing - trying figure out what looked different and then it looked like - to me anyway- you have no darts in the front. I understand it's a work in progress, but I am curious if it is indeed dart-less, if you asked for/ like it/ like that or if I am just not seeing it properly. If it is dart-less, it has a very clean look, but some of its shape is lost in the front.

    I've never noticed a dart-less jacket before or maybe never paid close attention. Does anyone else notice what I am seeing too? Is there such a thing as a dart-less jacket - before I go and Google it? I just noticed that the tailors' jackets look dart-less too. Is it a house style or am I going blind?

    In the theoretical realm, I'm sure it's possible for @Cleav to dress poorly. In the practical realm, I'm not so sure.

    Excellent as usual [​IMG]

    [...]

    I think this was taken quite late in the day after a grueling 14-hour ride along the perimeter of the Cleav estate, one of m'lud's centuries-old January family traditions.

    Cheers,
