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.

    Cheers,

    Barrel I think this could be your best fit to date.

    Just don't exactly match your PS and tie!! Also get your pants pressed...
    Ah thanks, you're right. Turns out to be a cheap shitty tie, but great job on the ID. [​IMG]
    Duder I would keep both of those. I think both fit reasonably well from the exterior, however if they aren't comfortable don't wear them, just send them to me [​IMG]

    Lol, it was my girl who requested suggested hinted liked it (?) that I match my PS and tie. Lol, yeah I need to get a streamer. Ever since I started expanding my wardrobe, I ran out of closet space. Now, I'm resorting to storing my pants folded in a garment bag...[​IMG]

    No worries, I didn't catch it either at first, plus it gave me a reason to try some dye work.

    Also for future reference, PTO just put this out:
    You never want your pocket square and tie to match. Tie + pocket square sets made from the same fabric should never be worn (let alone bought), but you should also not recreate this kind of look with whatever items you have on hand.

    Yeah, if it were my size it'd already be in a box on its way to my house. I wanted to wear it to a Dawgs game. If anyone finds one similar around a 42R drop me a note.

    I wasn't sure whether to go public with this or not but then I realized it was too big not to share with the thread. Plus, there's a question that needs to be answered at the end of this post.

    First, though, I have to apologize to the person for whom I was their secret Santa. :embar:
    Dude, I am SO not on the level of most everyone else here and nowhere near what just happened to me this morning!
    It's just not fair to you. May you have a much better Secret Santa next year!


    So...I went to the Post Office to check my PO Box delivery that wouldn't fit.

    :bounce2:

    And it fits better than it looks in this awkward pose.

    It feels hefty. I'll go by whatever you guys say.
    Open it now or don't open until Christmas?

    So there's a good Hilfiger? Is that like Dior? I've never seen that tag before. +1 to opening it.
