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.

    Every one of Manton's threads lately (latest one being "If You Do Not Own the Following Things ..." has been spurring fantastic discussion. Senior members talking directly to juniors; real insight being given; snark without viciousness; and a general sense of respect and maturity.

    This, along with the sartorial vacation reports by Gazman, is SF MC at its very best.

    The only way this could be improved is if Etutee wrote one of his amazing guides.

    Probably my best post- no Snark.

    Subject: Henry Cabot Lodge

    I had meeting with Lodge's son, Henry Sears Lodge, at the
    St Regis Hotel, possibly the King Cole Bar, in 1969 or 70.
    Like his father, he was (is) an imposing physical presence,
    about forty, 6" 4" + built like a football lineman, and handsome
    in a blond WASP patrician way. Even then I was relatively
    knowledgeable about clothes and immediately recognized
    that he was wearing bespoke: a blue double breasted,
    side vented suit in a winter weight even though it was
    summer, complemented with a spread collar shirt and
    a club tie. Probably a club he actually belonged to.
    I felt like a peasant in my Brooks or Paul Stuart "tropical"
    Ivy uniform, even though I had by then moved beyond
    button-downs collars and was wearing Church's shoes.
    We discussed a project in South America in which he
    was involved and I might be interested. As far as I
    know, it never went anywhere.

    Dieworkwear makes a nice visual argument in this response in Manton's white shirt thread:http://www.styleforum.net/t/309772/how-to-wear-a-white-shirt/30#post_5637731

    I'm on vacation right now, but will name 5 new winners when I get back in a few days. Stay tuned. There are some pretty cool posts from both MC and SW&D.

    Hendrix nomination for Bourbonblasted's post on how to approach advice on the forum wins for the day. I think that it is a good, balanced approach on how to get the most out of our little hangout.
