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.

    Depends.

    I'm a fan, though.

    Yay. The Men's Clothing groupthink is kind of obsessed with them. Anyway, just keep them slim and cut square. Wide knit ties that are tapered/pointed like regular ties look stupid.

    Would these interesting little things be only suitable for fall and winter?

    I think it's spelled yea? As in yes, rather than just woohoo? Anyway ... yea, absolutely.

    I want to kop some. I think it looks great under certain circumstances. I don't think I'd have the chutzpah to eventually wear one in the office though.

    knitted silk is the easiest to wear. I also have a knitted wool tie, but it really needs a tweed suit with a twill shirt or something.

    My hardest tie to wear is a PS neon green/brown striped tie.

    It pretty much only works with a white shirt. If I had some weird POW check suit I could wear it with that, but that's about it.

    No. In fact, they seem more proper in spring/summer. While silk wovens are always in season, knit ties (of all materials) work best with warm weather clothing and wool wovens make the most sense in fall/winter.

    Depends on your line of work.
