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.

    I did not think I was SW&D (i am 50) but if you want denim or any kind of leather jackets -that is the place to learn. Your hubby may appreciate a ToJ leather jacket for example.

    Guys always appreciate an alternative point of view though so please participate where you can. :nodding:

    I agree with this one. I've seen females working in a men's consignment store and they don't get nearly as much attention as females on here. I may be a female, but my personality is tomboy-ish. Treat me like any other person! [​IMG]

    When I refreshed my wardrobe my first suit was a charcoal pinstripe. I've since added two solids a navy and a light gray. The navy gets by far the most use.

    Assuming a stripe is a good choice at all (for body type and circumstances), then probably the most important details are for the stripe to be a low-key color on either a gray or navy background, in a standard wool.
