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.

    Cheers,

    Sisyphus is more appropriate to this thread surely?

    Nah, Prometheus is clearly more appropriate for Bannon.

    For Mr. Bannon, his fate as Prometheus seems to have attracted some favor here. For posters on this thread, Sisyphus is probably a more appropriate metaphor - pushing the sartorial boulder up a steep hill, feeling one's style mastery is close to fully achieved, only to have it be rolled down to the bottom with a devastating (or devastatingly accurate) critique.

    Watching what is happening with the GOP, I would think it is more appropriate for his boss, but that tale has not yet been fully spun.

    Anyway, Sisyphus' myth resonates with a lot of professions (including politics), and applies to this thread's efforts to avoid the same mistakes for thousands of pages. We should see happiness as enlightenment in this cycle, an entire world in the imperfect thread of a wool grenadine tie or the mono no aware of the daily four in hand forever inching closer to perfect, unachievable sprezz.

    ^ Too much going on here. I would think maybe a solid shirt or PS (or both solid) would help.

    Personally, I like the SC and tie pairing.

    @Markus W That is one cool SC! I love the fit overall...with the exception of the hank for that particular outfit. I think it's the shades of red that don't play nice together...but then again, what do I know? I'm just some internet dork. :)

    In real life the pocket square is a bit darker. But i like these kind of colorful outfits and mixing different patterns.

    Really good, tits. ( w/o apostrophe would have read quite different. Apologies if similar may have been previously noted; seems too obvious not to have.)

    I agree entirely. A plain shirt would remove one pattern and make the whole thing calmer. Jacket and tie are great.

    Excellent book choice! Joseph Campbell was one of a kind.
