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.

    First post

    I was searching through SF to find this thread and while looking through the SW&D WAYWRN I was so shocked at some of the pictures on that thread [​IMG]. Anyway, i'm glad I found THIS thread as I think my casual style fits this better.

    Anyway, since it's my first post, do you guys think my tie knot is too big for my collar?

    Elaborate on the shock of the SWD thread :foo: Tie knot seems a little large, a fih with one wrap oughta do it. Would prefer a BD collar with the cardigan but there's nothing wrong with what you've got, IMO. Would also prefer brown toned shoes but also not a big deal

    You got a momotaro going to battle tie? :wow:
    Agree with Shoreman on the knot being too large. Nothing wrong with your collar. Collars are very much subject to personal taste imo.

    Welcome! I'm not a fan of knit-on-knit combos myself, but I suspect you'll get a lot of love for that outfit. The separate pieces are all nice.
    If you're gonna go full on preppy you've got to get yourself a better looking piece of outerwear.
    I'll be SO glad when Christmas is over so I don't have to look at these abortions sweaters any longer.

    theBigwig: With that sweater, I think you should leave the jacket unbuttoned. If for no other reason than to hurt Rambo...

    Yes. It's too large for the tie as well. My rule is four in hand only with knits, though I use the Pratt for everything else.
