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.

    Great ensemble Foo. Love those lapels.

    Well, your scale works for you, but I would want to use my own sugarbutch's Graybeard[​IMG] scale:

    Two Graybeards: Not just in good taste, but an example for all men who aspire to stylish dressing

    One Graybeard: In good taste

    Zero Graybeards: Thanks for the effort, but please try again

    With the assumption that you're wearing a DB and not an SB with aircraft-carrier lapels, I would give you 1.5 Graybeards. Very nice.

    I like the idea of SB getting his own scale. His clothing analysis is cogent enough to be of great use to this thread.

    +1. He could also give an interesting contrast to the stated tastes of foo.

    Back from vacation, tried my luck with the FooPuff[​IMG] today. I think it certainly is a huge improvement over my previous puffing "technique". This is a new Drake's wool/silk hank, which was waiting for me at my desk - wondering if it works here.

    RDiaz, the :foo: fold is an improvement, but not ideal. I remain skeptical of the suitability of that semicircular shape...

    What I like about it is that the hank doesn't tend to attempt escaping from the pocket, as was usual with my previous puffs. Also, the arrangement seems to make it less bulky.

    I like the semicircular shape, but I see your point - perhaps it looks way too neat and tidy?

    Another try today, with and without the pocket square. It may be hard to tell with the light, but the suit is navy.

    It shouldn't come out so much it looks like a semicircle. Try tucking it in another centimeter or so.

    While I love foo's posted suit the only thing that I find a bit jarring are the buttons. Too much contrast for a suit, imo.

    It also has patch pockets and double-stitching. Not sure if that makes it much better or much worse to you.

    I guess a little better, but I always associate button contrast with blazers, or odd jackets.

    It's a summer blazer suit.

    I'll leave the rest to comment on the combination, but that trousers looks like spandex hugging your thighs. My 2c.
