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.

    They're Oliver People x The Soloist from a few years ago. You may find some on eBay from time to time but it was a pretty small production.

    i think between the various threads that pic has been posted on, you must have been asked about those shades a dozen times.

    because they are sweet.

    X-post from WAYWRN:

    Very unusual for me to wear a light tie, but since this was recently discussed (again) in the Noodles thread, I wanted to give it a try. Still not sure if I'm sold on this look, TBH. What do you think, gentlemen?

    I would like it better with a solid blue shirt, but I think it's an acceptable use of a light tie.

    Thanks. I tried it with a solid blue shirt first, but I was afraid the shirt would be too dark to go with the the tie since I don't have solid blue shirts that are light enough.

    Fair enough. If you needed to choose between shade and pattern, I think you made the right choice.

    Very nice @EliodA

    That's exactly how I would wear it. I was even planning a similar fit in my head but wearing a suit in this weather for someone that struggles to wear suits :D

    id like the tie better with a less business type suit, like a navy cotton unstructured SC perhaps, but it looks legit to me.

    I like that jacket and I would be tempted to swap the tie for a black knit.
