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.

    For good or ill, given how well things turned out in Hellhole, DC this week, I do believe we can return to regularly scheduled sartastictorial programming next week.

    I even bought my first new bowties in 25 years...

    So gentlemen and iammatt: either bring your A game or your Z game next week.

    - Is Moo invited?

    Don't change the subject: since you are in every week, I've decided to devote a subcolumn just to you. That's what happens when you cross the big four zero...are you ready?

    Ha! You are such an enabler.

    But you are like a fantastic Internet Petri dish of stylistic values: you observe and process everything, and you become better and better.

    We can get rid of 95% of all MC threads if we focused on what you did; why you did it; what resources were at hand; and were you...

    (a) Wow

    (b) shit, he looks good in a mode in which I would look bad.

    So: I'll be sacrificing you on the altar.

    ^^ You're asking too much of me, Bill - I've already taken my three best shots at summer dressing. I doubt I'll be exceeding my one photo post per week any time soon

    Of course, being able to come back strong when the weather grows colder allows me to preserve what little rep I have here

    You had fantastic pics last week..

    Just redo... you know, PG and you share a quality that is seldom discussed: making what you wear come alive.

    Welcome back, Mr Vox.

    I've already taken my three best shots at summer dressing.

    Barims, I nominate your Junya summer fit for this week's Look of the Week. That was great.

    I really appreciate Barims' creativity and overall looks. You really are fantastic. Many of the things you wear I could not pull off myself, due to being part a conservative profession.. But, you are a great inspiration.

    I worked a bit on that last week.

    Be patient.

    Very pleased to hear it! I've managed to arrange some work over the next few weeks, so there's lots of potential for me to embarass myself in the casual atmosphere of the office (As I type, I am the only man wearing his tie)

    You had fantastic pics last week..

    Thank you. I think the point you raise about bringing the clothing to life deserves its own thread - this quality is particularly prevalent amongst the HKG & PRC contingent. if I can make a coherent enough opening statement, perhaps I will...

    Hearty thanks to all of you - drinks someday, I hope. NDW, having left the financial services world recently, I found it difficult to curb my showier tendencies, especially lacking for appropriately conservative single breasted suits as I was, and still am. I eventually did what Holdfast has rather expertly pulled off - introducing the more whimsical pieces on a stealthy basis - and over time, it was taken as a given

    Ha! You are such an enabler.

    I agree with all of this. The attention to detail yielded by PG's OCD is fantastically precise and informative, and the developments are practically worthy of a postgraduate course module. It's also clear that seeing it in the flesh really reveals the detail, considering thethoroughness of his photography
