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.

    Congrats and enjoy them.

    In terms of suits, blue and grey dominate my wardrobe, and I don't pair blue shoes with a blue suit because.... too much blue. So I really only wear them with grey suits / odd trousers. [​IMG] Here's the top half of that outfit: [​IMG] Not to say they couldn't be worn with other colours, but hey, I have a lot more shoes looking to have an outing. [​IMG] I think if you are wearing a sport coat with any blue in the fabric, you could almost certainly pair up complimentary odd trousers with blue shoes.

    In a casual context I wear navy shoes with a wider variety of trouser colours:

    Great combinations RogerP, but I'm disappointed that there are no sharp objects in the background. :)

    Me too, thank you sir.

    They maybe only shoes but this is probably one the best choices I've made in a while now.

    I'm really happy with the results.

    Another picture from a different angle with a little more light. Both pictures were shot from the same location and the same time but notice the green isn't as dark in this picture as it was in the previous picture.

    I see your point, light makes a huge difference how are you planning on wearing this with? May be grey suits & kaki cordroid suits?
