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.

    You're probably right. My shirt collection is expanding. Eventually I'll have more options.

    No, he's not. : ) A casual spread is fine. Even an old British shirtmaker like Hilditch & Key makes linen shirts with spread collars. Spread collar = friendly, smiling collar. :)

    Connery's reaction when he heard that a knit tie in a 4ih wasn't appropriate for a spread collar:

    Looks v. good jester....its just one thing. I don't like ties with jeans in any non-frat context.
    Apart from that, very nice! Collar and tie are fine.

    I actually agree. It probably won't happen again. A tie should probably be accompanied by slacks and SC, or a suit.

    We can put the bottom half under failed fits. But if I lost the tie, I'd wear that fit again.

    Thanks! I'm a 38L. The jacket sits somewhere between 38R and 38L. I'd sell it and resize it to be a bit longer with a lower button stance if I knew I'd get my moneys worth out of it. But it'll be my one GQ sized jacket for now. It's not exactly horrendous to the layman.

    Scraping ice, temperature in the teens.

    Note how the elegant arc of the ice scraper in the right hand echoes in miniature the arc of the jacket’s hood as it drapes softly over the shoulder.

    Style, gentlemen. Style. [​IMG]

    ^ Great sweater. Is it not too close in color to your chinos, though?

    ^ Is that a quilted SC over a Stark/Stark-like cardigan, or is that all one outerwear piece?
