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'd prefer a natural shoulder on that SC. Really all-around soft construction is best for wear with jeans, but you can get away with some structure so long as the shoulder is (visibly) un-padded. Here you have too square of a frame on top, which stands in direct contrast to the wavy, louche look of the jeans. The fabric of the SC also looks worsted. If it is, that's a deal-breaker. The fabric needs to be REALLY spongy if worsted (think high-twist fresco). Otherwise, a coarser weave is the only way to ensure success. I'd also go a shade darker on the jeans (and possibly get a pair that fall a bit cleaner if you're going to wear them sans-stacks). Last thing: I would un-do one more button on the shirt. If you decide to go jeans with a SC, you need to distance yourself from the office as far as possible.

    Would have gone with a more neutral shirt or scarf. Right now looks too matchy-matchy and the purples are competing with one another (especially given the neutral nature of the rest of the fit). The jacket, pants and shoes are all well chosen.

    Wear glasses at all times, Stitch. You one hot mofo in them. Enjoying the fit. Scarf and shirt are fighting but that's fine.

    LOL, thanks! The boots are absolutely NOT a passworthy thing. Goretex is not to be taken lightly when the blood runs thin during the later years. My feet were TOASTY!


    LASIK. I did it about 13 years ago. It probably changed my life but I really can't recall other than I have a very large collection of sunglasses now. :embar:

    Thanks!


    Yeah, I agree. I'm waiting to wash them one more time before I get them hemmed since they were unsanforized. Thank you for the comment.
