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.

    It's fine. FooBot say too blue, but I don't mind. Manton say push down square, show less.

    The Prince, to me, is always one of the best dressed people on the planet. I have nothing to criticize about that outfit (could do without the pocketsquare) but to me, its classic Prince Charles, very well dressed, clothes that fit very well and nothing so in your face as that you see the clothes rather then the man. Basically, the exact opposite of what is popular in men's clothing as per the blogosphere/magazines/forums etc.

    Do you reckon HRH's shirt and tie could be thought of in terms of [​IMG]'s post on the Italian background -- the idea that the internet wants to simplify that down to two solids, but in practice it's more patterned? Or are the patterns here too strong for that?

    Of course, there's probably no less Italian context in the world, but can it be thought of in an similar manner?

    My guess of, course, is that this thread is pretty opposed to wearing only one color,* but I have to admit this is nice enough for it. I sort of feel like all the blue is better than 3/4s blue and then one unrelated thing, but I could certainly be convinced otherwise.

    *Edit: shows what I know.

    What I meant was; ignorance is bliss. You over thought it. As you were.

    Dumbo has the charisma of a box of lasagna and he's wearing a small collar shirt with a big DB, I like the square+suit though.

    I know that in France you need to be nauseously unctuous, sleazy, and a sex pest to be pass as "charismatic", so I'll put your words down to cultural relativism.

    I love how Prince Charles creases his sleeves. That's the old man swag. Always crispy. See above and...

    I hate the creased sleeves and I can't stand the way he buttons both buttons on his coat. Other than that, i agree with ed, he almost always looks good.

    I love the slightly stretched out hip pockets from stuffing his hands in them all the time. Like a boss.

    Ahhh "all these chicks clapping and they ain't using hands..." , now I get it, rather cheeky!



    I don't get the creases either but I guess that's his thing. I like all the buttons being done on his coat (not that I would do it),in some ways to me its the ultimate symbol of his comfort in the suit. He buttons the thing up, goes about his life doing everything without ever unbuttoning/rebuttoning the jacket. The jacket has to be cut to allow for that type of mobility I would think.

    I think the arm crease thing originates in the military, but Charles got the habit from his great uncle Louis Mountbatten, with whom he was close, who had them on his lounge suits as well as his uniforms.

    I button both DB buttons sometimes. Not always, but when I remember and feel like it. That is not very often, though I do it most of the time when I wear my DB blazer.
