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.

    You'd actually be surprised what types of items randomly show up with hideous freebies. I bought a really nice, discreet Marinella tie a few years back. It came with a Jerry Garcia-esque freebie in fine polyester. It gave new meaning to the phrase "I can't even give this thing away."

    It's really not that bad. I always get awful ties from relatives for Christmas. The worst one has dancing Tabasco sauce bottles on it with matching pocket square. At least no one thought it was a good idea to buy yours.

    I like this idea. I found a tie at my church's lost and found, that was black with saltwater tropical fish on it. I took it apart and used it to make a pocket square. It looks awesome like that, but as a tie [​IMG]

    I have couple of ties that I keep only because they are ugly.

    I often buy ties when I travel (as a memento), and if I do not find sth. that I like, I get the ugliest I can find. Here look at those: (left to right: China, Germany, S. Korea, SAR, USA - all extremely well made except the last but utterly unwearable).

    I will keep them if I have space on my tie rack.
