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.

    Yeah, I actually hit the button on a light blue button-collar oxford shirt that I'm waiting for.

    Knit tie: would silk work? I hear that cashmere or wool would be better options to pair with a tweed. Also, any ideas on color? I was thinking a dark red challis wool by Sam Hober. As for navy, there's none in the jacket so might seem off, dunno.

    I think silk knits would look good with that.

    This is a double post from menswear advice, hope that's ok. Just figured this thread would be a good place to ask about a dark brown suit. I'm having a bit of trouble finding shirts and ties to go with my dark brown suit because it's kind of a cool, greyish brown. I think it looks quite nice with a citified look -- a white shirt and black tie or a white shirt and a grey wedding type tie. However, I mostly wear blue shirts.

    Anyone have any advice on what kind of tie would pull this together?

    I think any of these from NMWA website would work to compliment or pop against a blue shirt and your brownish suit.

    Ah, thank you very much. I have a burnt orange tie from Chipp that should work like the 3rd one you posted.
