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.

    Tie is doing something strange but this is a far superior picture.
    And my phone trys to focus on the dirty mirror instead of me so that's why it's all out of focus. Oh well.

    Aglose, just a few things to think about, just trying to help:

    Shirt it too saturated. As a pale white guy (me too), go for very pale colors in shirt or you will look washed out. Very light blues and pinks are fine.

    Shirt collar too point, not enough spread. Also not tall enough.

    Jacket looks like it may be too large in the chest and waist area. Try one size lower and see

    ^ will see what I can come up with, but for today I'm rocking this. :) jacket needs to go to the Tailors to be taken in at the waist and chest. It fits, and might even be a bit tight, across the back and shoulders.

    Yeah, you shouldn't ever wear a shirt that color with a jacket and tie. You probably shouldn't even own one.

    Anybody recognize this tag? Insoles have been removed and the soles are vibram, so no maker tag.

    I wish we had a proper themed festival here. They went from Klondike days to Capital X to K-Days. At least if they stuck with the Klondike theme, I could rock some vintage workwear. I really like the Levis shirt. I'd dress cowboy just to wear that!
    That's an awesome suit, and the fit is great. I'd take it off the sale pile too.

    Weird record finds lately. All from one stop except the Incredible String Band (where I picked up a bunch of mint Traffic lps too). I'm guessing someone left them at a rental and the landlord donated them?

    My GW has been dry ever since I picked up the excellent barbour last weekend. I perused for a nice summer jacket which I'll wear to my society's initiation and found this. I know YSL isn't held with high regard but this will get alot of wears this summer and beyond - solid construction overall. The jacket fits perfectly with no issues whatsoever. All NA

    My favorite find lately: Brioni cream linen shirt size M, was hoping it would work for me but it's too big. I'd love to trade for a similar linen shirt since I need some for a trip to Spain this summer.

    @Fueco I love that Orvis, really wish it was an XS since everything Orvis tends to run 1-2 sizes too big...

    @Snoogz I forgot to mention that linen was a Brioni cherry pop for me! I was pretty excited to find it, but slightly less excited after i tried it on and it was too big on me.
