1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Sean,

    I really don't have a problem with any of those combinations except maybe #1. The chinos seem a bit too casual for those shoes. However, it's not a really bad combo and would do in a pinch.

    Butler, thanks for posting that superbly tailored fit.

    Here's a Gray combo X post from the "Friday Challenge" thread.

    I was never a huge fan of grey but I do have this one suit with a nice check running through it, I wore this for the monochromatic challenge:

    My favorite gray suit (and my avatar) a Borrelli I bought from ShopTheFinest last year. The ultimate pick-and-pick grey pattern.

    Too broad a question - the setting might eliminate many options. That said, the tie should be bold enough that people look toward the face instead of the feet.

    Built-up shoulders and skinny lapels.
    Perfect for a Lenny Bruce impersonator.

    If you think that lapel is skinny, you must not have been paying much attention to lapel sizes the past several years. That would be a medium lapel to be worn with 8-9cm ties. As tie width narrow, so do lapels.
