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,

    Fok on behalf of the entire Styleforum team

    Ironically, most ties I own are too long. As in, I have to tuck the slack discreetly into the shirt placket. I wear my trousers roughly two inches below the navel (flat front) and use a four in hand knot.

    Personally, I think three inches below your belt is better than three inches above, but their both wrong. However, like many things in life - I believe slightly too long is better than slightly too short. (That goes for pant legs, shirt sleeves, whatever.... [​IMG] )

    I hear the Italian style is having the skinny part longer.
    Or you could try a Victoria knot

    I don't like Italian style, though. My preference is and always has been English. What's a Victoria knot?
