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.

    Cheers,

    I'm sort of frightened to say so, but Manton's pocket square is sort of sadly hiding deep in his pocket. I am afraid to point this out, because I don't want Manton to like beat me about the head and neck with the rulebook, which I ignore (more out of budget constraints than ignorance) Other than that, he looks very well put together. He looks nothing like I imagined him to look, however, and I think some plastic surgery to more closely resemble Machiavelli is in order.

    Congrats on the article Manton!

    Big poofy prominent pocket squares are against the rules. Didn't you know that?

    I have practiced for years at imitating Nick's evil smile, but have never been able to get it right.

    I agree for the most part, which is why I prefer a square fold. Much less obtrusive. BUT on the occasion that I pimp out with a pointed fold, It just looks weird to have so little of the pocket square showing. If its against the rules, just call me a rebel.

    There is also something about where his eyes are pointing that is just as unsettling as his smile.

    I wonder if, in 600 years, someone on styleforum will have Manton as their avatar.

    No, in 600 years a tribal religion will have sprung up in the nuclear wasteland left over after WW3, a horribly disfigured race of mutants dressed nattily in polyurethane clothing will worship at the alter. They will worship the Man-Ton. They will read from his book of rules without fully understanding it. Charlton Heston will be there.

    If Nick M can get him to adjust his tie, I'll use him as an avatar... [​IMG]
