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.

    Very nice IMHO...VERY humble! I like the way you've combined the different blue tones and the different textures as well....

    On my screen -always can be screen issue- they are slightly off from each other and do not really match at all. To me, no match but very close is worse than "matchy." Best is "subtle" counterpoint. Rachmaninoff is a bad vibe for a pocket square.

    FWIW, re: my square/tie combo: the square has a black background, with very dark purple squares on it. The purple squares do have a green surround and center spot, but the green is a fairly acidic shade. Whereas the tie is a pretty typical forest green. The colours are (for once!) moderately accurate on my screen (I only have cheapo Spyder3Express colour calibration though).

    Not entirely sure what impact the above clarification has on the collective taste-o-meter, but those are the colours. ;)

    i see what you mean. they are not exactly the same on mine either. but VERY close. close enough that i would call it matchy before i would call it no match but same color.

    Manton and several others have posted a number of fits which really are on point with the theme of this thread. Is there some way to capture these so that we have a sort of HOF within the thread? Just a thought.

    Whenever I see your posts, I always wonder, how wide are your lapels?

    Is the shirt pink or are my eyes just playing tricks on me?

    I get your point, stich. I have saved a number of issues, but I would also argue that a public version could be educational.
