Now the only people who seem to post are <100 post people, and the only things those with more than 1000 posts seem to voice are complaints. StyleForvm was in its death throes before the changeover, lots of people said that, and I agreed.

Now, after the changeover, with its clunky operating and invasive adverts, the final nail has been put in the coffin. I think its only a matter of time until the old guard goes away, and people like myself who used to have a passion for this site join the ranks of SoCal, Trini, Mao, Vox, PhatGuido, Barims &c. and just disappear.

Spoo and his sycophants are welcome to it.

Posts such as this remind me that the Internet, and an Internet forum such as this, is interactive - we are, collectively, the content of this place in cyberspace. To complain that one doesn't like the content of the forum, without contributing to the forum to change its content is rather like sitting in front a TV set, with the remote control in one's hand, complaining that there is nothing on TV, yet not attempting to change the channel.

The best way to change the content of this forum (these fora?) is to contribute the content that you would like to see (something that you have done in the past, Ich Dien).

As for why people cease to contribute, I am sure that the reasons are as myriad as the people who cease to do so. Lack of time and loss of interest, I am sure, the primary causes - what causes the latter, I could not say.

Nothing exceptional here - except the whole.

Korshak, no?

Yup. That's the rub, and it's my fault. Need to get back to focusing on the flabby midsection.

Man, I really like this coat. The fit is great, and the color, very bold. Well done.

The proportions of jackets from Paul Stuart are different than those of my usual source (BB) - somewhat shorter, which may have some salutary effect on my appearance (I have a big chest and short-ish legs). The fact that the suit is new means that it also has a better chance to have been bought with my current proportions in mind - I've changed shape significantly over the last several years. [/quote]

+1 to HF's comment. The new suit looks very good. Are the sleeves perhaps a trifle long?

Thanks TTO, Phatty, Parker. You make this thread a pleasure. Spoo, I love the color of your jacket.

Thank you, mon philosophe.

The sleeves are OK, I believe - it's that my shirt sleeves are camera-shy, for whatever reason shog[1].gif .

My only problem now is that, subsequent to purchasing today's suit, I had a weak moment at BB as well (I am a sucker for a sale, it seems). I only hope that my instincts were correct in thinking that the proportions of the BB suit (a Regent) also suited me. I will submit photos for examination later this week - not without some small amount of trepidation . . .
