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.

    UPDATE: GO TO THE NEW TUMBLR PAGE HERE: http://jrd617sguides.tumblr.com/

    In this thread, I'm taking up the mantle from our dear, departed Vox / F. Corbera.

    Over the years, I have saved lots of inspirational fits from the WAYWN threads. This exercise helped me to understand what jacket/pants combinations work. I hope this resource can help newer members. Not meant to be comprehensive in any way. And not every picture is perfect.

    This will be an 11 part series.

    Part I: Air Force Blue / Royal Blue:

    You have to be consistent with the weights/textures, but I've found that this color works best with gray, tan, navy or denim, and light gray/white.

    Part II: Olive / Army Green

    Grey, tan/beige, different shade of olive / army green

    Again, be consistent with the weights/textures. Generally works best with gray, tan, or charcoal/navy

    I'm definitely interested in what you have for gray.

    Grey

    Not very versatile. Best combo I've seen

    Thanks for this! I loved Vox's Coherent Combinations thread. It was one of the best ever on here that I have read.

    No picture came up for this post. Is it just my computer or the same for others as well?
