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,

    Start with plain color shirts and sweaters. Move on to striped shirts and textured sweaters. Avoid checked shirts and sweaters with intricate patterns (fair isles, for example).

    The reason you didn't find anything on search is because it's basic color and pattern matching, and that gets discussed in many different threads with many different terms.

    I would do either a plain color shirt or s simple stripe pattern, you can't wear a tie like that with a shirt that has too much pattern in it or the whole look becomes busy.

    Yeah, white or blue or pink shirt, blue or grey jacket or suit. Great ties for fall through the holidays.
