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.

    Cheers,

    @gdl203 great choices. out of curiosity, what would you envision pairing the grey SC with? I'd say navy pants (team navy trews FTW), but you've a far better eye for what actually looks good, so your input would be sweet.

    Can you guys bring a 54R Sportcoat from Sartoria Formosa tomorrow to the Pop-up so I can try it on for size before making a Pre-order?

    Thanks!

    yup

    The pop-up is right next door to our stock room, so we can grab anything anyone needs or wants to try on

    Navy, lighter grey, darker grey, sand, cement, brown, denim, etc.... it's a running myth here on style forum that grey jackets are hard to pair. If you think about it rationally, the idea that grey pants/bottom are the most versatile color to match with almost any jacket/top is exactly antithetical to the idea that grey jackets/tops are hard to match. It makes no rational sense. Unfortunately, newcomers read this stuff in old threads and turn those opinions into their own, and it's a self-perpetuating canard.

    You can even do super low contrast with two different greys of similar value, like this guy here:

    To confirm, can one pre-order short lengths on the sport coats?

    That super low contrast look doesn't do it for me, but your post is a major breath of fresh air. I (by no means a style expert lol) see so many of these rules, and cannot for the life of me understand why anyone adheres to them, or justifies them being considered as gospel.

    @gdl203 Which photo is more accurate in natural sunlight? The cloth looks lighter and brighter in the first, almost approaching shades of grey.

    In normal lighting situations, the close-up pics are more accurate. The Fox picture is taken in white studio light

    I'm going to be pretty jealous of whoever orders a jacket in this cloth. Pre-order season at NMWA is the only time I'm no longer content with my size...
