    And on a similar subject, Master Classter used to do occasional threads (sometimes in response to questions) where he would post a whole selection of combinations based around a theme, from pics previously posted on here. They too were always welcome and very well managed. Haven't seen one of those in a while, hope he hasn't drifted away from SF long term.

    Just an FYI for people that when the pic error happens (the red X) and you don't see it, all you need to do is right-click and select properties. From there you'll see the URL and you can paste it into a separate tab to view it.

    Ahh...Damn politics. I miss his snarks just as much I miss his pics.


    As the owner of 3 navy/blue blazers of different cuts, this one comes in handy. Just wished the pics could be bigger.

    Have to compact the pictures to fit the forum dimensions.

    If you want a particular picture in the bigger size, PM me.

    Not a very common color for an odd jacket. I suppose there are other combinations, but this is the best I've seen and the only one I thought was worth saving.

    nicely done.

    it would be helpful for you to keep writing out the colors for the colorblind among us...

    I struggle to mismatch my only Charcoal jacket. Was hoping to see few different pants options…..

    Well, maybe there are no other options and that's why you are struggling? :sly:

    Seriously though, I think charcoal jackets often look like orphaned suit jackets. Vox jacket in the picture above has all the attributes that make it casual (patch pockets, heavier cloth etc) and I still think that the combo in the picture only barley works..

    Agreed. I was going to answer your question on where Vox went by saying he had decided to give up all his earthly possessions and join a commune, but I was afraid that would crash the website with everyone pm'ing me to ask if I knew the Goodwill that was closest to his house. Then again, if that were to ever actually happen, I'm sure Spoo would be in on that immediately, and we might see LuxeSwap grow to a Fortune 100 company.

    Ha! Let's not hijaak this thread. Perhaps a seperate thread is to be started to discuss the impact of Vox/F.Corbera.

    Meanwhile, back to regular programming....

    From all the pics I have seen, it looks like the combination of a medium blue shirt + solid dark tie certainly make a lot of outfits that much nicer.
