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,

    Safest, yes, and elegant sometimes, but surely not the most elegant. Most of those are nice, by the way.

    I meant most elegant only in terms of what a newbie should get to start out and not regret it later on

    certainly not Rubinacci elegant

    So your point is that you can't be safest yet most elegant?

    It hasn't been finished yet, hence the thread in the shoulders (I just got it) [​IMG]

    Those jackets are very nice. Do you have a similar summer collection?

    Oh my god. What is going on with your tie? It's actually worse than the jacket. What, is it six inches across? I mean, jeezus.

    What size do you normally wear Moo? The jacket itself is nice. Do you feel snugness around the shoulders/upper arms? While I don't think the shoulders are too big, the fit looks a bit off, but not because it is too tight either. Trying to put my finger on it.

    4x2 DB's- a lot of them.- Okay, a few 6x2's and 6x3's thrown in. I'll probably get some more SB's at some point but I'm not a fan of showing a lot of shirt.

    One could perhaps write a whole thread on it.

    Me too. It seems "squished" somehow but I can't put my figure on it either. I like the fabric though.

    Agreed. I like some kind of a pattern with contrasting colors on top.

    I'm a 44/45/46 depending on maker. I'm currently losing weight, so I may be a 43/44/45 now. It has very high arm holes and I have greater than average sized arms, so it's a tad tight but not uncomfortably so.

    And the short length. And the high button stance. And the too-spread-apart patch pockets.

    I like it. [​IMG] The gaping is less now that I've lost a bit of weight.

    Maybe, but the other problems will remain. No matter how much thinner you get, it will be too short and the buttoning point will be too hgih.

    I know, and you'll never like it or think it looks good. I can live with that. Can you? [​IMG]
