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.

    Probably so, because I tried to be rather sober (blue blazer, grey trousers, quiet tie). Hank was a choice of either white linen or cream silk for that goal, and I thought white linen would be even more contrasting - I was wrong. I ended up removing the hank during the day. Had to try [​IMG]'s cream silk to realize I don't really like it that much, just like any other solid silk hanks...

    I dislike very dark brown shoes (which were my only alternative option) with such light grey trousers, but I agree that this shade of brown is perhaps a bit too flashy, too saturated. Thinking of some med brown suede as my next purchase...

    I don't think charcoal works with anything else than black shoes. Also, though it might be the photo quality, I don't think there's enough contrast between the jacket and pants.

    I personally don't like polka dot squares. I like the cloth on both of the suits though.

    I'm in on this too. I have a couple of dotted squares and pretty much never wear them.
