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,

    I had the jacket taken out in both the waist, back, and shoulders, but it is still very very tight. I think I had the sleeves taken out as well.


    It's highly likely that your idea of "very very tight" is different from other suit wearers because you're used to wearing such boxy ill-fitting potato sacks.

    I don't know if this message will ever sink in, but there's a fundamental difference between the feel of a suit and the feel of pyjamas.

    Au contraire. A well tailored suit can feel just as comfortable as a pair of pajamas. Especially if said suit is worn with braces instead of a belt. [​IMG]

    Ah, but I didn't say it can't be as comfortable, just that the sensation is not the same. And as it happens, I already agreed about the braces. So there.

    They are too small. It's very tight in the shoulders.


    hard to tell exactly how well the body fits, but that suit is NOT too tight in the shoulders. It is pretty easy to see where your shoulders end and they end around the seam, meaning the suit fits properly in the shoulders. Your shoulder is not poking out in the arm fabric, so it is in no way tight.

    I'm not sure what happened to the original pictures. I havent used that FTP site for some time but it still should be active. I'll see if I can get them restored.

    In the meantime, here's from Sunday:

    Ok wait, Im confused, you state in your signature that you dont have a lot of money to buy expensive clothes which is part of your excuse for dressing like a toolbox on acid, yet here you are posting hundreds of photos of yourself wearing different blazers, 2-piece, and 3-piece suits along with a bevy of whack ass huge knotted ties. You obviously had enough money to buy all of those suits. Why dont you just stop buying the stupid looking ones and spring for something nicer that actually fits and looks cool?

    Hey you're still here! Cool.

    Yeah, I'm just curious at what the forum considered to be "the style apocalypse" that everyone was making it out to be.

    I mean at present, you're better than many of the shlubs that I see walking around...

    My dad is the same way. He has a walk-in closet the size of a japanese apartment, and its filled with dozens and dozens of illfitting, polyester, garish colored "suits", blazers, and vests.

    Their motivations may be different however, as my dad likes to apply the "quantity" over "quality" mindset, which is the prime reason for his shortcomings, or should I say, largecomings (he's fat).

    I could improve further on this if I wanted to. The sleeves are too long, and you guys dont like the big tie knot.

    If you read back over this thread, it's been covered.

    I have dozens and dozens of suits, blazers, and ties, all of which I paid very very little for. A lot of the members of this form buy suits costing well over $1000. I am not in a position to buy even one of those, much less as many as my wardrobe requires.

    That having been said, I buy and wear what I like. I happen to like the suit in these pictures (and the shoes, shirt, tie, etc) and except for the sleeves, it fits how it is supposed to.

    This outfit is an improvement from the original outfits.

    Still . . . the jacket sleeves are too long and, PLEASE, FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, LOSE THOSE SHOES!! PLEASE!!

    Also, please start thrifting for 2-button jackets, not 3-buttons.

    Your tie knots remind me of a banana hammock.
