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 have a family event coming up. It's a formal event so I need some tux ideas. My date is wearing a yellow dress and I was thinking that I should wear something to make us match a little. I only have the regular black and white. I was thinking maybe a yellow tie with a small yellow handkerchief on a black tux, black vest with white shirt. Sorry, I don't know the tux/suit terms. If anyone has ideas, please help me out.

    You can use colour in the waistcoat/cummerbund, bow tie/pocket square, or boutonniere. The two former options are almost always done tackily, and not recommended. Go the classic route, and put a yellow flower in your lapel.

    If you do anything more than whoopee's flower suggestion, you may as well go "all the way" for a ruffled-front yellow shirt and notch lapels on the dinner suit's jacket. Less really is more. Don't be too cute.

    A ruffled shirt is actually not as hideous a mistake as a notch lapel.

    Charvet even does colored ruffled formal shirts.

    Are you fond of quality German glass?
