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.

    NOBD, where is your sweater from? Or is it a v-neck tee? I'm looking for something similar to wear during spring.

    Congratulations on the weight loss! That's the biggest step towards looking good.

    The fit is alright, but I'd lose the tie or wear a sweater with a deeper v-neck and a different, darker tie. The pants are somewhat shapeless and do nothing for your behind. A little slimmer would make you look more shaped.

    I like everything except the sweater.

    A rare mid-week TB-in-denim sighting. What a privilege for you.

    I'd drop the tie when wearing jeans, but that's just personal preference. Looks great, otherwise. I wish my Dad would dress like that.

    lol, come on. I meant that as a compliment. He's obviously not 20 years old and not trying to look like that. :)

    I'm not feeling the lower half here. The socks/shoes aren't working for me with those jeans. I would also prefer a navy chino instead of the jeans as a whole. The top half I like, but the bottom is just too clashy clashy for me.

    A cheap-ass H&M from a few years ago. The fit is nice, but the wool is thin and floppy.

    +1. Jeans are too worn out to be combined with dressy items (balmorals, tie, shirt). Darker denim and chukka boots or something would work better.

    I personally think the jeans are an inch or two too short, even by conservative mc denim standards, if those exist

    Good job on the weight loss - keep it up! Just a few pounds more! Cardio really helps lose those last few pounds, I've heard.

    Re. the fit, I think you need a slimmer sweater. If you're daring enough, you could throw it in the washer and dryer - I've done it before, and it works to shrink sweaters. The only danger is that you'll tear up the sweater or shrink it too much.

    Glad to have you with us.[​IMG]

    Thanks! I'm a bit worried about the dryer thing, though, if it doesn't fit, it doesn't fit and I shouldn't be wearing it. Pound for pound though, it's probably the most expensive thing I own, being as it's a TSE Cashmere sweater and to compound things it was a gift from my wife.....then again, I suppose one of my kids could have it if it all went desperately wrong!




    Thanks! I did have the same thought in my mind all day, even when driving in to work I considered removing the tie but just thought that as I don't wear ties at all I was just having a mild panic attack. Should have listened to myself!

    Trousers I seems to be struggling with. The more I lose weight, the more apparent it becomes as to how wide my hips are and If I were a woman I would be rocking a killer hourglass figure (I'm hoping much of that will change with the upper body work I am doing though). However, wide hips mean buying trousers OTR becomes a bit tricky....I either have to go a bit loose or I have to accept the pockets sticking out as the trousers end up a bit to tight around my bum. I picked up a pair of chinos in Uniqlo this morning which do exactly that (but they were £9.90 so I thought what the hell), maybe I will throw them on and post a picture, see if they are a step in the right direction. I don't want to hijack this thread though, is there a better thread I could post it to?

    Well just damn! I've lost another half inch! I know gravity is what keeps us from floating off the ground but sometimes...

    Gravity sux.

    If you have a reputable cleaners nearby, they could do it for you. It's called "blocking" - they use water and heat to shrink the sweater and essentially make it smaller all around. It looks like your sweater would be a good candidate for this, since it's a little big everywhere.
