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.

    More casual attire - not as hot, but just as humid (82F/28C, with humidity at at least 60%, with chance of rain).

    Shirt & trousers - BB
    Shoes - J & M

    I'll second or third or whatever the big shirt comments from before. I don't think tailoring will git 'er done. Both shirts from the last 2 fits have shoulder seams well beyond the point where the actual joint exists.

    It's time to let the moths out of that tightly clasped wallet of yours, sir. Cut loose and buy their 'Slim Fit' shirts in a smaller size!

    Any new shirts that I've bought from BB have been their Slim Fit models, but for patterned buttondown shirts, I'm working through my considerable back catalogue.

    As I know that you're someone who has also made a considerable weight loss (much more considerable than my own, if I recall correctly), you're speaking from a personal perspective, and in a positive way.

    Now, if I can just find shirts in patterns that I like in a slimmer cut . . .

    Thanks!

    The offers I have received on the shoes have come with conditions attached that I am not prepared to meet at this time (nor can I disclose here).

    New shorts. Nice and slim. The shirt and the shorts are both blue oxford. I've been wanting to try the whole sport coat and shorts thing all summer. I imagine a white shirt would look better, but I thought this was more fun.

    Shorts need external buttons on the fly to continue the look of the shirt. :)

    hahaha [​IMG] I was thinking Garanimals. For those of you who are too young, this was a brand of children's clothing in the 80's that had little animals on them and you matched the animals to coordinate your outfits. This usually wound up with a kid wearing green shorts with a green shirt.
