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 prefer this one. Sure, I'm a little disheveled, but my Inverness is awesome, and handy for concealing the street howitzer. Also, I have a great hat. [​IMG] Do you know my friend Bret? He's quite a dapper dresser: [​IMG]

    OK, gents, grab your bowlers and brollies, I'm in. I have a hard act to follow, but I will give it my best. You guys just make sure to give me good stuff to work with.

    One might say that you're our huckleberry...

    These pictures are no more than a bunch of Hollywood pansies.
    For the look of the real West, as only an Italian, can see it:

    The Good the Bad and the Ugly

    An abundance of Sprezzatura, No?


    Agreed

    Clint is awesome and gotta love his story from laughed at actor to accomplished director, however, he has some of the worst personal style in Hollywood...

    He looked great in these old spaghetti westerns though.

    For me Eli Wallach and Lee Van Cleef set the standard.

    About 40 years ago I and some family members attended a Spaghetti
    Western " Marathon" in New York: The Good the Bad and the Ugly, A Fist Full of
    Dollars, and Hang 'Em High, all in succession. After which we went out for
    Pasta in the Italian part of Greenwich Village and drove around in my
    brother-in-law's Corvair Monza convertible. It was one of those beautiful
    summer weekend days when Manhattan is relatively empty. Oh. the
    Nostalgia!

    Well, it was quite a week, wasn't it? Several of the looks made me want to jump for joy:
    [​IMG]
    While others made me want to dive for cover:
    [​IMG]
    One notable event: We were invaded by Eds.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Meanwhile, Cravate's tie grew increasingly glad to see us:
    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    I was disappointed by the lack of bowlers and whangee-handled brollies, but at least Foxx gave us this, earning him umbrella of the week:
    [​IMG]
    Sportcoat of the week:
    [​IMG]
    Tie of the week:
    [​IMG]
    Knit tie and velvet collar of the week:
    [​IMG]
    Sweater of the week:
    [​IMG]
    Craziest sweater of the week, and it wasn't even worn by me:
    [​IMG]
    A runner-up for sweater of the week, but winner of the Guy Ritchie "Don't Mess With Me" award:
    [​IMG]
    First non-creepy shoe circle in SF history:
    [​IMG]
    Windiest:
    [​IMG]
    Flanneliest:
    [​IMG]
    Best use of a monument for dramatic iGent framing:
    [​IMG]
    Sometimes it's not the clothes, but how they're worn:
    [​IMG]
    ^As an aside, let me say that there's an appealing late '50s, early '60s vibe to this, down to the point collar and the tie that's narrower than the lapels. Tradtastic. Next, a pairing. Less StyleForum:
    [​IMG] [​IMG]
    More StyleForum:
    [​IMG]
    ^I liked seeing both. Really, though, many of my favorites of the week were also among the simplest.

    The manbags are a bit sketchy, but it's the holidays and I'm feeling charitable. So we'll speak of them no more. And with that, I'll close. I've omitted quite a few lovely items, so a tip of the hat to you all: [​IMG]

    The scarf in my pocket was to ensure that I would simultaneously notch my entry into vox's looks gone wrong digest. [​IMG]

    Doc, it was worth the wait [​IMG] Great job.

    I really liked seeing Coburn's pic in the digest. As you comment, he wears it well.
