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.

    Yeah. Perhaps Canta should change his avatar. Occasionally I think Canta is behaving oddly and then I notice the username.

    And stitches has officially laid claim to Canta's longtime avatar. All in under a week.

    Is this a good way to wear a red shirt?

    Stitches can't stay with any one avatar for too long so Imma let it blow over.


    I was asking myself some hard questions though when Vox mistook a Stitchy post for one of mine...

    I know this isn't a fit thread but the shirt and jacket both look very nicely cut.

    And I think that gives you quite a bit of leeway with colors.

    That said, I don't love the purpley blue tie with the shirt but I also think a navy tie would have been too facile so props on avoiding that.

    A solid red shirt would be terrible but that red pencil stripe is nice.

    Manton, can you elaborate on what makes a tie, particularly a neat, appropriate for a suit and what makes one appropriate for an odd jacket. I've been thinking about this--and read Practical Thoughts on Coherent Combinations (to the extent that it survives) several times--but I'm struggling a bit. I can see why the tie in Spoo's example is more appropriate for a suit, I think: city/formal material, small pattern, fairly soporific. I can't tell in other instances. Thanks!

    What tie color outside the blue spectrum will you recommend?



    Thanks for the feedback. Will post more fits when I have questions/doubts

    this one will have some staying power. at least until someone makes something cooler for me to use.


    which post?

    I think blue (lighter than navy) is a good option but when it's more on the grey side of the spectrum.

    Blacks works as well.

    Beyond that, I really don't know. Sure there are some other options but nothing springs to mind.

    kulta's shirt, the stripes seem a little darker, more brickish. I prefer that to the bright red.
