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.

    Do I really have to take CM's advice and wear black cap toes to interviews?

    They just seem so boring.

    boring at interviews is OK. depends on the formality of the business--if you're asking this question, it must be a full-suit type of place, in which case black captoes is a good call, though I'd think that anything that can be polished up and isn't square-toe loafer garbage is probably pretty OK.

    unrelated to that, who was it a few months ago who bought some side zips from a new shoe/boot company and got a discount because they were gonna review them on styleforum? what was the brand?

    huh? gordon's been about as helpful with sizing as any vendor I've dealt with. SAs are hit and miss--has run the gammit from helpful to basically unintelligible. try emailing your Q, might take a day or two, but gordon deals with it himself.

    blue suit with brown shoes/belt is fine too. doesn't have to be black captoes but captoes are considered formal.

    Agreed. Black captoes are playing it safe, but most places won't care providing you're looking smart and like you've made an effort. Black chelseas, smarter derbies will be fine for most places (or brown shoes). If you've got an interview at an accountants, bankers, law firm etc. you probably want to play it really safe, but most places aren't as fussy.

    Would a pair of burgundy shell balmorals be permissible?

    I'm not applying to any important high level accounting firms or anything. I just need a good "real job" interview outfit.

    For most companies I'm sure they'd be fine.

    Blue In Green has some of the best customer service I've ever encountered. Of course, I've only dealt with them in person so...

    random thoughts from right now, when I learn that the fire alarm testing service I thought I was waiting around for isn't actually happening

    Things I would wear and not even care about; probably not at the same time:

    full length missoni coat

    rick medges (lol but seriously)

    uniqlo quilted long skirt (thinking of buying one for skiing/chilly winter mornings)

    full-on white mountaineering like w/e
