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.

    Awesome combo. It looks like a killer suit and the tie matches it perfectly. Very well done!

    Thanks! I love that perfect shade of green and I appreciate the silhouette. I think if this jacket is useless in a classic men's wardrobe, Barbour jackets are useless too.
    DonCologne already explained it very well.
    I understand what you mean. Thinking in rules, this jacket is too casual. But sometimes I like the contrast of that jacket with a sportscoat and flannels.

    Thanks!

    As an owner of a slightly sticky-outy bum, I am bemused by your favoring a center vent. In my experience, either side vents or no vents trump the center vent in all situations.


    Juxtaposition is fundamental.

    Overall nice combination of colors and textures but I think your pants would have looked much better if they were a little tapered towards the ankles, or a little longer if you want them to be that wide.

    This is a very fair point. I actually just brought them up to 2 inch cuffs today (this morning; sewed them myself), and I think that shortens the inseam just a bit too much. I will let them back down. Here you can see the exact same pants, with a smaller cuff and thus longer inseam.

    Hopefully I can find a middle ground, because I think pants this weighty need a larger cuff.

    I think they looked much better before. Maybe you can take them to a seamstress (if not a tailor) and have her/him taken down in a more "professional" way so that you can be satisfied with the width of the cuff and still have them that touch longer.
