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.

    Cheers,

    3.5" is considered the standard on lapel width, so 1" is really very, very thin.

    I'm not a fan of sheen, especially on an odd jacket, which should be distinguishable from an orphaned suit coat.

    Love the shirt, but not the bottom with it. Where did you get it?

    Besides that, the V-shape and the proportions of the lapels can accentuate the chest-waist drop of a fit man or at least make a fat man look better. Also, the shoulders and head cannot be perceived separately from the lapels and the shirt collar. The right lapel and collar shapes will hide certain imperfections of your bone structure and accentuate the positives. It's all about proportions that are right for you and for your body type, not for the marketing campaign of Dior or some other fashion brand. They have to do ridiculous things to appeal to customers, but you don't.

    What's with the new whiteface, Doc? I preferred your old obscuring style to this distracting approach.
