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.

    ^ everett, that's an excellent point and I haven't quite thought of that. I'll come up with an opinion soon ;)

    So i tried to take clap's advice on trying to be more natural and I walked around to get ready before snapping this pic in haste. These are my lowest rise pants (jcrew urban slim fit). The denim shirt is for a reason...hoedown in Detroit tonight but I can't lie, I like it.

    nyr the green pants look so much better because they're hemmed to a proper length and fall straight.

    Citan, your waist, lats and shoulders are somewhat narrow compared to your hips and long legs. Wearing a bold belt and tucking in a slim shirt makes this more noticeable. Sort of like a tall guy wearing his trousers with no break. In your case, a fuller shirt might actually help balance things out, and, as mentioned, perhaps you might consider wearing a cuff in your trousers.

    You could probably a slimer pant as well. I see a good three inches of fabric hanging off your left quad

    Cool shirt!

    Take a look at the tiles in the background. See how the vertical lines keystone? They are not parellel to the sides of the frame, ie, your camera is not level. You're tilting it down, which will naturally make your shoulders look even larger than your waist (inverted triangle). Hold the phone even lower and tilt it up so that the vertical lines are... vertical. Your latest photo (with the denim shirt) is level and is a better representation of your physical proportions.

    Hope that helps with your mirror shots.

    Citan, you look like a man wearing a correctly fitted shirt and trousers. That is all.

    Edit: To all, I meant that in a good way.

    I think the oxford cloth stretches with wear a little while the heavier duck cloth doesn't., which is why they are longer, they were all done at the same place and each pair was measured on me, so thats the only thing that can explain it.

    For whoever asked for a (overexposed) button-down (bear in mind: I only have monks for the time being):

    Pretty chilly day, but at least there's some sunshine around.

    Which APC are those? And how are they sized (compared to your actual waist size)?
