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.

    his style and vibe is spreez in my mind. get a pic of his watch hand. he just oozes it. i dont think he is a poster boy for CBD. for awesome and timeless natural style that cant be argued with? sure! CBD? not imo.

    oh, also, he is wearing a peak lapel SB. :p :foo:

    you are welcome to block me, but i am actually having a serious conversation with you.

    the man is known for his bold stylistic choices is he not? he was a supremely stylish guy, i dont think anyone is arguing that. i am just saying that he is not the person i would use to prove a point about CBD dress. why is that so bothersome that it makes you want to "ignore" me? does it bother you that i dont agree with you? i am not mocking you, i am just stating that i dont agree with your assessment in this particular instance.

    also, you did not get my full quote, i added to it, to clarify my point of view.

    stitch, you have an IQ above 80 I am guessing, if he's quoting your posts, you are obviously not blocked

    oh hai, M. how have you been, have not seen you here in a while. do you approve of today fit i posted?

    lol, yes, that is true. although i have no one on ignore, as i understand it, you can still see that there is a hidden post. ill bet most people who have people on ignore, sneak a peek out of curiosity. that is my guess anyways.

    also, i never have taken an IQ test, so i can neither confirm nor deny your guess. i like to believe im in the 160 range.

    160? That would be 4 standard deviations from the mean. And quite impressive.

    Yes, I said "where" when I meant "wear." Suck it, Stitchy!

    What, exactly, is to be gained by telling someone you're blocking them? It seems doubtful that anyone is going to change their online behavior based upon this information. Do people gain some sort of cunty self-satisfaction by letting others know that they will no longer be reading their posts? If you find it necessary to block someone, why not just do so and be on your way?

    I don't understand the point of a block list to begin with. The world is full of people with whom you will disagree, and yet be forced to interact. SF is no different. If you are unable to deal with this on an internet forum, how on earth do you manage in real life?

    Trousers are charcoal flannel, shirt light blue. I added a simple folded white pocket square before I ran out the door.

    Ignore the mess in the background :)

    Suggestions for improvements? I normally wouldn't wear french cuffs with a SC like this, but I have a dearth of solid blue dress shirts at the moment, and my solid blue barrel cuff is dirty.

    It's funny because when I typed that Agnelli was the first exception I thought of.

    When I think CBD I think American or British CBD. The culture, mentality and flare of Italians, even the most industrious, leaves them on the periphery of CBD, at least in my mind. While Agnelli is no doubt impeccably dressed and a style icon, I just don't think of him in a traditional business attire sense; that is to say, he was dressing for himself, and not the board. Again, as SB pointed out, titans can make their own rules.
