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.

    JCM, I liked that gun-club fit of mine too. Probably should have cross-posted it to WAYWRN Casual.

    I also have a winter-weight gun club jacket. Hope to feature it soon. You can't have too much gun club, you know. Summer and winter weight are a bare minimum.

    Could be one of my first Claghorn gongs too. Yay!

    Also nice to see all the unusual textural fabrics - Crat, Merick, Braddock, DerekS in particular (but others too). These are cloths you rarely, if ever, see being worn in real life.

    This is one of the great things about "classic" menswear - may seem boring and rules-ridden to some, but in reality there's an infinitude of great stuff out there, all of it grounded in historical precedent, and a lot of it so much better than just about anything you can find in modern mainstream men's fashion.

    Again this thread demonstrates its worth. Thanks to all those who make the effort. (Might be my turn again soon...)

    I've mentioned before, but I am curious about what Mr. Six is hiding with the blurred out pictures behind him. Perhaps something which would reveal his identity as a superhero?

    Mr. Six is my new favorite person. TD!

    Olajuwon would be a great subject.

    Weeeellllllllll ... To alleviate that burden as quickly as possible I'll go ahead and say that I'm a LeBron stan. TD is the greatest power forward of all time and I respect his skills and longevity and appreciate his quiet dorky humor, but he doesn't really interest me. And I can't stand the Spurs as an organization (because I have a long memory and am petty).

    But here's the full TD chapter, which is great. https://issuu.com/fdadmin/docs/freedarkoduncanexcerpt_02

    Olajuwon would have been good for a style guide analysis but they didn't do one. I think they only did them for players who were active at the time of the first FreeDarko book (2008). And Olajuwan was a great player--whom I enjoyed watching play--but perhaps not that interesting.

Walked past this earlier today. It's a "Bridal Exchange". Today is Sunday, so it wasn't open, but it looks like a place where unhappy brides exchange things that they don't want for things that they do want The bride in the picture in one of the windows appears to have achieved happiness by exchanging her groom for a horse. (Please, no comments that the place should be called a "bridle exchange" or that if one has a horse one needs a groom.) Brooks Brothers blue wool and polyester blazer, L L Bean yellow OCBD shirt, Beau Ties Of Vermont tie, Hermes pocket square, blue and yellow surcingle belt, Orvis trousers, and Allen-Edmonds Walnut Strands. On a large enough monitor you can also see that I have (sort of) managed to get my watch (well, the watch chain) into the picture. It's harder to get pocket watches into pictures than it is to get wrist watches into pictures. [​IMG] I do not know if there is also a "Groom Exchange" where unhappy grooms can exchange their brides for horses and then have an inside track to (eventually) getting a few pair of shell cordovan shoes. For fans of pictures of small parts of people rather than whole people (there must be some fans based on the number of thumbs these sort of pictures get) and for fans of brass buttons....... [​IMG] Many years ago, when I got this blazer at Brooks Brothers, there was no problem having working button holes added. Back then, two buttons was the default number of cuff buttons on three button jackets (and three was the default number of cuff buttons on two button jackets) but you could have any number of cuff buttons that you wanted. I wanted three buttons, so they put three buttons on the cuffs. Recently, there seems to be an odd practice of leaving some of the cuff buttons unbuttoned. I have no idea why people do this. Maybe they miss having fly buttons to forget to button (since the invention of zippers) so they forget to button their cuff buttons instead. (On the off chance that any unhappy brides look at the posts in this group, the "Bridal Exchange" is on Olympic Blvd just east of Bundy in West Los Angeles.) @blekit 35 [​IMG] Sander 52 [​IMG] @Andres 13 29 [​IMG] @upr_crust 28 [​IMG] @Coxsackie 34 [​IMG] @Claghorn 36 [​IMG] Next round will start here: http://www.styleforum.net/t/394373/...ing-right-now-part-iv-starting-may-2014/35565 Stats!

Some bright spots, including the episode where Cleav took on the English wind and won, but most everyone in here regularly puts up better. Eh well, life goes on.

    I think @Sander is the outstanding fit from the last batch. That's a very well executed solid/stripe/neat/irregular pattern combination in well-chosen colors.
