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.

    Cheers,

    Manton is right, they are good for weddings. So are grenadines and other solids. You don't want to wear a loud tie to a wedding, and stripes look too casual and mundane for what's always at least a semi-formal event.

    This does not mean you can't wear a glen plaid tie whenever you want. I think they are classy and understated, and it takes a certain amount of expertise to pick one up in the store & know how to wear one: I think they look much better in an outfit than they do in isolation.

    Well, Manton didn't invent the term 'wedding tie', so don't saddle him with it. They're useful for weddings, but regular wear as well.
