    Magnificent.

    Though, ok, to nitpick, the square in the overcoat is a little silly.

    Pretty much how I see it as well. My favorite basketball team is the San Antonio Spurs.

    I get it.. the spurs are a team that is supremely efficient and have been the best team in the NBA this year but you would never know because they are so not flashy.. outsiders looking in would say the Heat or the Thunder.. they have more allstars and a flashier game.. but they cannot hold a candle to the Spurs.. thats how I view your style Clags.. I know I never comment much because I dont have the time too and I really feel that style and fits are so intimate to the wearer that who am I to say that does not work. However, Clags, you are very consistent. You rarely dazzle but those who know quality know that you look great in what you wear. Rarely ever a fit issue and color coordination is always on point. You have a very simple aesthetic that you rarely deviate from..but you always look superb.. Stitches is a little more adventurous with the colors, different suiting styles and textures.. if asked to choose between both.. I would not know who to pick.. especially as it seems Clags that you have stepped it up recently (if thats even possible).. Just my two cents..

    It seems like that from my limited posting/reading experience there are certain WAYWRN people that reach a fit point where almost everything they post lays somewhere between quality/acceptable and effing awesome.

    Clags, I feel that you reach this point on at least 80% of your fits (maybe more), and since you rely on the classic navy blazer/grey pants combo (which is totally fine) people are happy to thumb and move on, as opposed to a more "experimental" fit that may succeed or fail at an extraordinary level.

    Perhaps this is why longtime WAYWRN posters eventually move on. For purposes of clarity, I don't want you to leave Clags, just exploring the psychology of those who choose to do so.

    i think their departure was more due to the social aspect of SF changing so much. but as well, they just ran out of things to talk about that they had not talked about already.

    also, i want clags to leave because he is a tool bag asshoal.

    Circumstances, responsibilities and priorities change. People absorb, or are absorbed by others, as much as they need to and then either moderate their participation, or move on as interest and external influence dictates. Does anyone really believe that stitchie (stitchie & perhaps more importantly, mrs stitchie, included) will have logged in somewhere in the neighborhood of 117,600 posts by 10/2017? Let alone still be participating in any meaningful way.

    I've been around for longer than most, but have come & gone for long stretches at a time. Not that my candle has burned bright: based on post count alone, I've caused barely a ripple on the surface of SF (perusing the content of my posts would erase any lingering doubt). It's possible I may be drifting in and out over the next 10 yrs or so, should SF still be a viable entity. Might even have a decent fit pic put together by then.

    a) top notch post
    b) Stitchy will reach 120k
    c) Stitchy hasn't contributed meaningfully since 2009.

    Though he might be forgiven his excess in part, as it's also a form of advertising. Btw, I am the proud possessor of the same tie on view in this glorious display. Unfortunately, there is no Venn diagram wherein Braddock and I share any additional sartorial common points of reference. Including the ability to effortlessly knot said tie.

    My belief is not whether he will reach 120K posts, but rather that it will be done way before 2017.

    Thank God. Otherwise, I would've pulled the trigger on it. But now I know I need a rusty maroon neat. So. Off to search the internet for one.

    I don't suppose you have a passable picture of it in the wild?
