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.

    Cheers,

    Haven't we recently spoken about the skinny blue stripe?

    I wouldn't call that skinny. The ratio in the first pic looks 1:1 to me, even though it actually seems to be 1:2 or 1:3.

    Regardless of the width, the shirt stripe is a pattern too many. A solid would soothe the eye and ground all the business elsewhere.

    Thanks for the input Doc. I think it's not optimal because the shirt stripe is too close to the verticals in the SC. Looking thru Flusser there's a pic of the DOW in the same configuration, but his POW is darker, providing more contrast, and he's wearing a bold stripe tie which dominates the lines of his shirt and SC.

    You say you are a farmer, but that suit looks grey to me. Is it brown in reality?

    I tend to agree.

    Is that a suit or a sportcoat?

    AP - Out of curiosity, what was your footwear choice with this suit?

    I'd go solid blue shirt with a plaid tie.

    Collar stays are your friend

    But overall - looks nice

    Uh oh, Canta, I believe you've blasphemed. Only a heretic would suggest collar stays.

    Truth be said, I might use them on (very rare) occasions, but I like how the collar looks in that pic without them.
