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.

    Ok, I figured this wouldn't be easy, but I loved the jacket so much I had to buy it. (I really want a blackwatch shawl collar DJ too!)

    Put my navy grenadine tie up against it, and my eyes bled a little.

    I'll scavenge the closets, put some looks together, and post pictures.

    I am determined to not have this jacket relegated to light jeans and white OCBD duty.

    Thanks for the feedback so far.

    Listen, this is a jacket you can really do a lot with. Just understand the principles and use some imagination. It is not at all and ugly pattern for a jacket.

    Would navy or hunter pants be disqualified for being matchy? Yellow would be unseasonal. I don't think I could bring myself to wear any shade of brown or tan.

    Meh, I'll figure something out, I'm a resourceful SOB.

    Remember, you are looking for contrast here. Navy would be too dark here, hunter green is just way too much green. It would start to look costumey. If you don't like brown then stick with mid gray. You can't go wrong.

    Well, it looks like AAS ran away with this one. What do you say AAS? Would you like to choose the next two contestants for next week, or would you like to defer back to me?

    I can do it, but I'm not sure what my time frame will be.

    No worries. This is a pretty informal thing anyway. I think we would prefer, however, if it was as close to Tuesday as possible, so that it wont divide people's attentions from the Friday Challenge. Anyway, have fun! Can't wait to see who you pick.
