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.

    TaT is SF approved? News to me. I've seldom seen a fit pic from TaT that wasn't met with a chorus of disapproval and snark.

    Perhaps SW&D plays a different ballgame, but MC has roundly rejected TaT.

    Unfortunately, that doesn't stop the chorus of "TaT" every time a new member asks for recommendations. I think it's more of a SW&D-inspired fit.

    I'm sure that there have been similar threads before, but why not do another? And yes, "SF Approved" is a loaded term.

    I'll start:

    "Loud" suiting fabric (gun club check, prince of wales, tartan, etc.)
    Anything double breasted
    Paisley ties
    Mabitexes
    Chisel toe shoes
    Navy blue shoes


    So you are obese (can't do Mabitex) and unimaginative when it comes to dressing (avoid "Loud" patterns and Paisley ties)? [​IMG]

    Fun socks.....though I'm no longer sure these are SF embraced. As a sidebar Pocketsquareguy really does a great job in this regard.

    Tan shoes in a business setting, I love these for casual but think they're too much for 'serious business'.

    Bracelets, you a-holes finally talked me out of bracelets and now everyone is wearing them [​IMG]

    Sure you post on pick of yourself with tassled nipples, bare chested and in a thong and suddenly its in "Creepy Satorial Images" and no longer SF approved.
    I actually love my spectators (brown/gold) but don't think most could pull them off.
