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.

    Very nice. But where are the cuffs?

    Sweater and pants are great Frank. I would prefer a different shoe. Maybe one shade lighter

    You know, my thought was that black shoes might work well here. But I don't have black shoes. Otherwise, choice was dictated primarily by weather. I have a pair of bad weather shoes that are more cognac/tan colored. Could try those out...

    what color are the shoes? they looked black on my monitor. My personal preference is not too much contrast between pant and shoe...most of the time.

    They are #8 shell, so burgundy and with a dark edge on the sole. I'm generally OK with high contrast between shoes and pants, but in this case I thought something more muted would work better. The pair in tan I have (it's a pair of Carmina's in what they call caramel calf, but that's been darkened with a some Montana Pitch Blend for extra waterproofing), might work or might not. Darker brown (one of these antique congac/cigar type colors) might be better.

    For me? I almost never do cuffs. I have a few pairs of trousers cuffed, but it's never really been my thing. :hide:

    Yes, you! :)

    Okay. They scream cuffs to me. And not too tiny.

    Nevertheless, very nice. Including the dark shoes. I like the contrast, and besides they work well with the dark sweater in this outfit.

    I think most people would go with cuffs just like you say. I guess I'm just a little... different. :)

    Wow. Time flies. I was still in primary school when that Outkast song came out.

    Edit: Oh, yes, I do like this.



    Oh, hi Stitchy! I'll be back a little later with something for today I think.

    I enjoy the fit, MCT, and it is dangerous combining those colors at the risk of looking like the Joker.

    Also, great fits posted lately. I am glad Frank has started frequenting this thread, I feel like he could be the poster boy for MC Casual.
