    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.

    Well if you choose to wear your pants very high, you need to adjust the length of your tie accordingly, no? The "right length" for a tie is primarily determined by its position vis-à-vis your trousers waist.

    I actually think he looks pretty good. Everything fits well and while the tie is a little long, it doesn't look obnoxious. He just needs to get rid of the "H" on the tie...

    He does look good (he usually does). But tie is a bit long and a bit wide (take a look at 1st pic). So he could look even better just by retying that tie ! :slayer:

    Solid fit, R. That tie is cashmere, no? Care to share the brand? In the market for a solid navy cash.

    This looks like an excellent representation of your personality. Like an extension of who you are. To me, that is what this place is all about.

    A rare foray into this thread as today is one of those unusual days where I'm about as close to this thread's theme as I get. The styling & colour of this DB is may be a bit too leery/flashy to quite fit the thread (and maybe the square is a bit too flouncy too, I suppose) but I'm always interested to learn if my intuition on these matters is correct or not. :)

    As always, do feel free to spoiler-code it out of the way, should it not be sufficiently in keeping with the internal criteria in operation here.

    Thank you. It is an old Drakes cashmere tie. It is slightly too long and thick, recent models are definitely better

    Slightly off-white to pale ecru; within that spectrum anyway.

    PS and tie too matchy?? No not sure they are a match. Hold has fantastic style but I am not sure this is directly on point for the thread.
