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 agree with you EFV..you and Tchoy totally took it.. as for mine being the least favorite of Eloida..thats totally fine.. The only thing on my side that I feel I would have changed is the shirt..you are correct that it was too busy for the suit.. I did have another option that would have worked better.. but the shirt was a little thicker..in that weather outside it would not have worked.. the tie is a solid knit tie, perfectly acceptable for summer.. as for summer shoes.. you might have a point there.. the only summer shoes I have are loafers which I would not wear to a wedding..so some points I agree with and others I dont...my favorite outift was braddocks..the colors and pattern mixing was sublime..everyone in the list did a great job with fit (atleast those that I could see from a full body pic)..Im not a fan of burnt orange ties in general but I think you made it look as good as it could be..hard to do Eloida and Don (sort of)..Pingsons outfit is more my style and as usual did a very elegant and understated job with his latest offering..overall this was a great batch

    Thanks Elio for getting this started. Very nice all on the fits. A few things that jumped out at me

    1. Sotiris' linen tie with the suit (I think it's a fresco).
    2. Sander's choice of a pink shirt to go with the cream jacket.
    3. Tchoy's nice use of green with the gray suit.

    They pop a little for me in that they aren't necessarily the first choice I would have gone with (e.g. neat, light blue shirt, blue neat in order, to pick obvious color/category choices). But I also quite like Elio's use of color, texture and pattern (see the close up). The check is bordering perhaps on the too large size but I quite like it...with the burnt orange, it's got a nice joie de vivre.

    BTW, since Clags has reiterated that this thread can be a forum for discussion, might I suggest that we kick up rather than down in future discussions (not that any of you were suggesting otherwise)?

    That is, rather than critiquing a fit for not belonging, those posters (and I'd love to hear from all of the above) choose a fit occasionally that missed the 20thumbs but worthy of notice. No need to discourse too much on thumbs, but there's a "mob" effect of course. I'm interested in fits where Clags, Chocosa, EFV, Elio, Stitches, Sugarbutch and Pingson thumb but no one else does (to make up an example) that I think worth bringing to the fore occasionally and discussing. That would be instructive. Maybe I will look for one, but AM SF time is now drawing to a close so it will be later in the day.

    Hokay!

    Two things, Stitchy I thought you looked great.

    Secondly, I would wear every one of the ties in that batch

    The batch is a home run just a few fit issues with shoulders here and there, Don could have toned the shirt to a muted pattern or go plain and Clag's knot is just too fat.

    I have had words with Wang about this. That generation of his grenadines had a super thick lining, a poor choice for grossa. They have thinner lining now.
