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.

    I really have no problem with them. Though I would prefer the DB version in that pic for myself.

    Perhaps a sarcasm emoticon would have helped get my tone across.

    PMOK should be beatified, if not canonized, for that last photo alone.

    He definitely banged the odd scarlet woman or two. Lack of photographic evidence notwithstanding. On that note ...

    I would lower the button stance, widen the lapels, and lengthen then jacket a bit. But better than most get-ups so far.

    Gustaf V of Sweden (the present king's grandfather) was a pretty natty dresser, but like the Prince of Wales, he often found himself in dubious company.

    Nonsense.

    HRH the Duke of Cambridge (Prince William) is always appropriately dressed whilst on Royal duties and what he wears when not so is not relevant here. The only criticism is that he seems to have dropped the pocket square in the last few weeks. Hitherto he had a white one but this disappeared during his last overseas tour and has not reappeared.

    Though they have the money to spend for bespoke suits, not all the royals can pull off looking regal as they say.

    Just thought about that. Shouldn't they all have a personal tailor going bespoke on all there clothing... ? I would.

    Like his grandpa, young William seems rather prone to embarrassing neo-colonialism, however... and what's worse, whilst he's lording it over the natives, he's wearing a shirt and tie with no jacket! Tut, tut...

    You guys are talking about that colonially-themed frat party he attended, right? Yeah, that wasn't in very good taste.

    I think he's nailed the fit. I'm with you on the button stance and lapels, however.
