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.

    Louis XIV, I was actually thinking that as well, very unproportional. Maybe it was the camera angle. I actually am very skinny, 6'3" 130 pounds here.

    It's very tumblr'esque - cutting edge.

    Unfortunately my barracuta doesn't have the awesome double zip.

    Wow, that's indeed very skinny.
    I am 5'8 and 135 pounds and have a hard time finding well fitting clothes.
    Am really surprised the shirt looks good on you.
    What size do you wear in the JCrew chinos?
    Could you wear them higher?
    If not so, maybe a higher rise pant would improve the overall impression.

    SVB is incredibly tall and fairly skinny, good person to ask/emulate if you're trying not to look like a beanpole. I'm in a similar situation, but not to the same degree. Cuffed pants or full break, thick belts, and always wearing my jacket are my little tricks.

    The pants are 28X32's. I definitely could wear them higher, they were kind of low for this picture.

    I agree.

    It is taken to new heights (?) by the good old boys down home. They starch their jeans as well.

    I'm having second thoughts about the white belt, but I can live with it. Looks like I may also need to have that shirt tapered even more than it already is.

    I like the belt. Gives it a casual flair. The cuffs, on the other hand, I can do without. But that's my style.

    I like the belt and agree about the shirt. Might work as is with a fuller, more casual trouser, but with the slimmer trousers it's not completely working.

    Wow, really? Talk about an optical illusion. I always thought you were more like 6' 10".

    Free sample of bourbons, who'd of thought? I guess I should ditch the t-shirt. Otherwise. Tom Ford shirt, Hermes jacket, Burnello Cucinelli pants.

    The accessories are nice.

    edit - red stag is a horrendous abomination of whiskey.
