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.

    Where you wear it on the proper side but it start's off/begin's immensly narrow until it widens and show's the big broad part?

    Often though this can not be known as a tie style cos most I know wear Jumpers with such a style when adapted. If anyone can tell me it's name though i'd appreciate it as I adore very long ties like this style.

    Thanks.

    Tracy Morgan captures the spirit of this thread perfectly. NSFW

    This looks horrible. Seriously. Anyone considering tying a tie in this manner should be forced (non-violently, if possible) to put down the tie and walk away from it slowly. Use of this knot by SF members (though this would not happen irl) should be grounds for immediate expulsion from SF.

    Correct, however, my boy Spiffy here has artfully tied 7 ties around his neck in that photo. Surely, you want to recant your statement, dont you?

    Not really. Surely wearing 7 ties at one time, rather than displaying each individually, perfectly coordinated with shirt, jacket, and pants, is an egregious breech of SF protocol. This talent could be better channeled elsewhere. To compound this transgression, the pocket square is too matchy!
