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.

    Hey Clags, Can I say FU?

    Not because I hate you but because that is an awesome fit. Well done sir!

    What jacket do your think would go better with the pants?

    That jacket is manageable but I would skip the tie and the vest

    Go all out FU madras. Or tone it down with navy?

    Maybe that's it, but it's a bit too much contrast for me.

    New jacket with no alterations; I would greatly appreciate any feedback. It looks tight in a couple of pictures, but it doesn't strain in normal wear. I know the square seems a bit off: it's a red and burgundy plaid pattern, but apparently only red is showing. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Don't take it to heart. You know what they say: fifty is the new, um, forty-nine-and-a-half ...

    The pulling on the fabric means it's too tight. It might not feel tight, but looking tight isn't any better. Armholes look a little wonky giving you that shoulder protrusion and divoting. You might be able to have the jacket let out a little if there is enough material left, however the shoulder thing is pretty unworkable as far as I know.

    @WilliamBlake CM, is right, but it's not a bad first go at it - welcome!

    Other nitpicks: needs new shoez or a shine at least, different PS as you've already identified - something with some lighter complementary colors or at least not as closely matched to the tie, pants aren't falling very cleanly in 2 of 3 pics - perhaps they're too short and a cuff would help, and it looks like you used a full or half-windsor tie knot and would be better off with a four-in-hand.

    Keep posting!

    @Murlsquirl Yusssssss. Are the trews brown or burgundy?

    Thank you for your feedback.

    I tried both a FiH and a Pratt this morning, but neither looked right. After a few tries the FiH still seemed too cylindrical, so I gave up. I'm also wondering if my OTC socks are keeping my pants from falling more naturally: has anyone else experienced this?

    @Caustic Man, thank you. Your fits, along with @Sander's have been among the most influential to me since I discovered SF.
