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.

    That's the most common color I've seen it. I think the jacket looks fine, but probably needs a white shirt and not a navy tie.

    With a white PS, it's okay. The tie is not in bad taste, but it's a bit I'm Running For Office.

    This tie is more "sporty". Keep it for a solid navy blazer or tan suit. Choose something solid or with small repeated pattern. The pocket square doesn't work here either. You have such elegant suit pattern, just wear a white linen. .

    A windowpane suit is an elegant look. Windowpane is also quite a statement so be reserved with the other elements.

    Thanks, gentlemen. Points well-taken.

    Funny thing is, I hold elective office.

    Where's your American flag lapel pin? Isn't that part of the uniform?

    I think you mean 'elected', unless it's just an office you chose... [​IMG]

    Today's outfit looks like it would go better with black shoes. You know, cool colors and all...

    I might have picked the wrong pocket square, but I picked the right word. Up look it.[​IMG]

    Hmm. According to my OED, you are right. Funny, I have never come across the word used that way in the UK, and I would always have understood it as meaning chosen or selected in the active rather than passive sense.
