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 kind of thought grenadine was a bit more casual and better suited for lounge suits than anything more formal, but figured OP might like the texture in case I was wrong. Oh well.

    +1 on those vests. Would you consider those two pairs of pants interchangable between the outfits, Butler?

    HRH is wearing a morning suit said to have been made by Anderson and Shepherd about 15/20 years ago.

    In principle, yes! I would wear the darker ones with the morning suit to a funeral, the lighter ones at more festive occasions. :bigstar:

    Spot one mistake? His waistcoat slip is showing too much - it is only supposed to be just visible :bigstar: Like this [​IMG] Uploaded with ImageShack.us

    Damn butler after seeing that pic of you in your morning suit makes my attempt look very sloppy.

    Back to the drawing board for me.

    Wait. You have a morning coat and are thinking about not wearing it? Why on earth wouldn't you? Seize the opportunity. You look great in it!

    I'm not sure I entirely agree; I think gradations of depth are permissible. Here. for instance, is my own slipped waistcoat:

    I would say that is it mid-way between the two examples given. Although I cannot confidently date it, it is a genuine vintage article and I have not tampered with the slip placing in any way.

    I was thinking the same thing. It looks like a publicity still from the iGent version of The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.

    You often read on SF about people getting harassed for dressing nicely. I doubt that happens to Butler. If he is ever offering gravitas lessons, I am signing up.

    Butler, the sleeve openings of your jackets look quite wide; I suppose this is deliberate? I don't understand it, to my eye, smaller would look a lot better (and your shirt fits very close to the wrist).

    Well, that is the way Steven Hitchcock/A & S cuts them, very comfortable and with the right amount of room for the french cuffs,me thinks! :bigstar:

    Well it is permissable I guess, but not strictly correct form the last 50 years or so :bigstar:
