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.

    If you were to put the whole of casual outfits on a spectrum ranging from traditional country-ish inspired outfits at one end and SW&D-ish directional looks at the other, I'd say NOBD is my favourite at doing an adaptable middle-ground of smart everyman type of casual fit and a definite inspiration within that subset, so that's high praise indeed. I dare him to wear a purple instead of blue gingham though. ;)

    Very nice, Holdfast.
    I like the purple with the gray. Jeans seem a little short but maybe thats just the picture.

    Thank you, HF. I like that description. Erm, I think... :confused:

    I haven't worn a tie and jeans since June 1991 though... And I wore a green gingham on the other page. Purple is for the pope :).

    Yeah, I lean/sit back against the chair in all my photos which has the effect of slightly shortening all my trousers a bit. Having said that, I suspect the effect is further exaggerated because the jeans have a narrower leg opening so will appear to ride a little higher compared to wider leg trousers with more material to fall forwards.

    By the way, the jeans are relatively new (2nd wearing) and I prefer this cut to anything I've tried before. They're Levi 513s and it's nice to have a combination of enough room around the thighs while still being narrower around the ankle. I'm actually going to get a second pair once I source some more (you can't get them in the UK; or at least, they're not on the Levi UK online or in my local b&m stores). I took a chance on this pair from eBay, and I'm glad I did.

    I'm going to keep the 511s I got a couple of months ago because they're in a more casual wash and so fill a different niche but fit-wise, the 513 is way more comfortable, and to my eye, I prefer how they look on me. Interestingly, I compared the two, one on top of the other and the difference in actual size (they're both tagged 30x30) is objectively minimal: about a quarter inch almost everywhere, except the waist is a little higher (though not massively so). And yet they feel and look quite different.

    I have Levi's 501 so the leg opening was already 8.5" which is what most of my trousers are anyway.

    yup. nobd seems to me to hit the golden mean of dressing well without looking costumey. in other words, he dresses just like i would like to (except he does it so much better).

    +100. Its much easier to put together a suit than a casual combination in most cases.
