    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.

    Since it's already Friday (and I, like an idiot, finished the update for last week on Thursday), I don't mind doing one more week after which I will take a break from it. However, if someone wants to pick up the mantle immediately, I'm more than happy to start my break now.

    Yes, let us prevail on you for one more week.

    After that, you and I will confer to see whom we can convince to take up the white man's burden.

    In return for your labors, I will try to finish up the expanded Looks Gone Wrong™.

    The goat wins the internet.

    Decadently Oriental.

    My client will be released when justice is done!

    Have a serious talk with your fact-checker. Learned Counsel's client seems to be
    imprisoned at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. Very appropriate for White-Collar
    criminals with Ivy degrees.

    I like to think that the big head is little Gemellus...the Robert Graves one, not the real one.

    Ahoyhoy, welcome to this week's digest. This is going to be my last go for a while and sadly it's a much shorter

    digest this week. I seem to feel quite empty of vitriol as well so this will be quite a boring go.

    No beautiful wimmenz available this week so I will have to start with this:

    [​IMG]

    One of the better Ralph Lauren impressions in a while.

    [​IMG]

    Bizarre, but interesting.

    [​IMG]

    Nice and opulent but the 80s open DB action is a bit unfortunate.

    [​IMG]

    Nice colour combo for the dog days of summer.

    [​IMG]

    A worthwhile food picture.

    [​IMG]

    Still can't get used to the horizontally striped socks. They look like little girl socks. And this is coming from

    someone oft referred to as a "little girl".

    [​IMG]

    Nice casual outfit, the gingham and rumpled linen are a great match.

    [​IMG]

    This is my pick of the week. The grey waistcoat was a great choice to tie top and bottom together.

    [​IMG]

    Specs well worn.

    [​IMG]

    I dislike the collar on the coat but I do like that red piping and the overall silhouette. A gull wing collar would

    have been perfect to put a bit more width on the top and balance the whole thing out.

    [​IMG]

    Colourful bowtie action going on

    [​IMG]

    Really like this Robin Hood impersonation. Slight off-white/grey shirt with forest green trousers and tie accents.

    [​IMG]

    Elegant and the pink accents make it. I like the match of blue shirt with the blue overcheck on the jacket.

    [​IMG]

    Great colour and look to the shoes, they don't make em like they used to blah blah blah etc

    [​IMG]

    Not a fan of the unbuttoned collar but the collar shape and jacket fabric is very nice. People might not catch

    this, but it's a lime green overcheck.

    [​IMG]

    Quality sellers.

    [​IMG]

    Colour palette is pretty restrained but it's well done. Just the right amount of texture and pattern mix.

    [​IMG]

    I hate the contrast collar blue shirt / pink tie with a burning passion but the trench and hat saved you.

    [​IMG]

    Burnt orange pants nice

    [​IMG]

    No. 2 for the week. Love the denim shirt with the chunky, fuzzy, round toed etc

    [​IMG]

    Fresh from dumping a body under the bridge.

    [​IMG]

    That's a some what fizzled-out wrap for the week. Goodbye for now!

    Nice wrap up, yfyf. I missed that nice plaid tie, khaki suit combo. I love the niidawg breakfast photo.

    Bigbris, maybe you could 'bring the pain' next week?

    PG, I love the strap. Is it a dedicated camera strap? Looks a little like a bungee cord, which would be a neat idea. Nice job on the commentary, Bris.

    - strap is by Artist & Artisan in Japan.. Camera specialists. http://www.artisanandartist.com/
    - It is made of silk, soft to touch.. Not cheap but DANG! http://www.artisanandartist.com/straps/acam106.htm
    - also got the cloth one for the M8 http://www.artisanandartist.com/straps/acam102.htm

    & YFYF will be missed.. I don't think he has ever worked this hard..

    ^Thanks! You're right, they're not cheap, but they're beautiful, durable, and have a great story/history to them.
