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.

    I think he has a little bit more work to do on this coat than simply shortening the sleeves.

    Your belly peeking out between the open quarters is very unflattering. Not sure if that's a job for your tailor or your trainer.

    Jesus Christ what happened to this thread? Take a look at the OP and compare to some of the recent car crashes. It's going backwards not forwards.

    I have to agree, either the queers are off or the buttoni point is higher than your natural waist, but either way it is less than flattering. You are a reasonably trim guy, but those photos make you look like you're busting out of the coat.

    I'm not saying I dislike it, but that is not a scarf, it is a blanket.

    Speaking as an American living in a Nordic country: Scandinavian style sweaters other than SNS Herning all look like hipsters' ugly Christmas sweaters to us. I do not think his is ugly, but the standard norwegian red blue and white neru collar is as weird as most of us can handle, nevermind the WTF huge pattern fuzzy lopapeysas that are popular in my neck of the woods.

    I'm not quite that bad, and I hate loose ends, but my scarf is literally the same weight as my thickest sweater...

    LL Bean everything except for the boots (Wolverine 1000s)

    Ultimately decided that this should be a birdseye 'n plaid day.

    I think the Norwegian gets a bad rep for being too big.

    Shoreman's duffle is an eye-catcher. (Couple of pages back.)

    CP would you mind sharing the measurements of your sweater?
    I have had an eye on this particular one for quite some time but was never able to figure out if it would fit my frame.
    It fits you very well.

    I am wearing a size Small.

    p2p is 20"

    Top of the collar to the bottom of the sweater is 25 inches.

    I wear a size 15 neck, 33 inch sleeve shirt. The arm of the sweater is a good fit for me. Hope this is helpful.

    agreed. It's more of a shawl, but that's the point.

    Yeah... I envy guys who can wear scarves without looking like a girl/moron. I can't. Which sucks, given my current proximity to the arctic circle. someday maybe. I've nearly worked out how pants are supposed to fit now, which is a lot of progress for me, imo.
