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.

    Gah!

    You don't need new jeans. You need to break in the ones you have. Stonewashed or predistressed jeans will not look good- they'll look stonewashed (way too even a tone- natural jean wear is much more varied) or they'll look like they were distressed in a factory, not on your body. Which would, of course, be true.

    Your current jeans look like a good fit, you just need to wash and wear a few times. They'll lighten up over time, and in the meantime, they look fine with the jackets.

    Hard to go wrong with brown and blue.

    Just thought I'd add two more examples of navy and denim done nicely, both from WAYWRN :

    DarkKnight - don't take this the wrong way but something seems off with the fit of those SC's. I think it's your posture or something. I can't put my finger on it, maybe it's the camera angle? just seems like you're leaning back or something.

    PS - I like the green donegal one the best in terms of styling.

    PPS - I had the VictorSF pic too but didn't post just on principle because I don't like the shape of hist jeans. They were made by his tailor, not a jean maker and IMO it's obvious. They look like work pants made of denim, not jeans.

    Yeah, the jackets do look off in the pics. The fronts of the jacket have an odd overlap to them and they accentuate the width of the hips somehow. Nice backyard.

    I find them easier to combine when they're lighter. I also don't mind lighter washes (when new) as long as they have an even colour.

    No it's cool, I was asking for opinions.

    The shoulders are a touch wide, but not a lot. My shoulders also rotate forward so the back of the shoulder always has dimpling even in tighter jackets.

    These are all pre-tailor and off the shelf, so I'll get the odd tweak done.

    Also yeah they are for winter, which is about 0 - 5 degrees celsius around here!
