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.

    No buttonhole in the lapel means that 70s is a good bet. Nice cuts to the classic menswear made during that time, it's just that they made a LOT of not so classic menswear too. Nice that you fit your Dad's stuff.

    As long as I stay in the office at midday, tweed season has arrived in the Bay Area.

    Very well turned out, both of you. I especially like the grey herringbone suit!

    Thanks! Tommy Hilfiger for Dillard's. Obviously not top shelf make, but the fabric is great and, after some alterations, fits great.

    I would go oxford material in light blue or a warm white.

    I know it has to be heavy, but I'm torn between OCBD or herringbone semi-spread.

    I would definitely do an OCBD, but that's just me. I tend to think overly textured shirts like herringbone get a bit tacky. Great for suits and sportcoats, but not so much for shirts. Just my opinion though.
