    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.

    whats better: buy size 32 pants and have the waist taken in an inch, or buy size 30 and have the waist let out an inch??

    That depends on how it fits elsewhere. If not trying on first, it might be possible estimate by the fit of other pants or knowledge of so-called figure variations (for example, a relatively large behind).

    My uniform for work is black shoes, black trousers, black shirt, and a tie.

    Should I just buy a plain black tie, or are there any colors which could work against a completely black outfit?

    Where do you work that requires you to wear black on black? Im not really a big fan of black shirts in general but a mid grey tie might work well for you. Whatever you do dont wear a white tie or you will look like a tool.

    I'm a sales assistant working in retail, so unfortunately there's no way to avoid it! Thanks for your response!

    hello.
    question: what do people recommend to wear with striped SC (I have 2, one charcoal striped, one black striped. One was once a suit, the latter was never a suit). I love them, and often wear black trousers with the former and charcoal with the latter. Any recommendations?

    ... sarcasm? (I hope)

    I would suggest you lose the vest if you insist on open collar and sans tie.

    Would love if someone could give me a second opinion on this leather jacket (link below). I asked about why the price is so cheap, and the seller says that she bought in in the 90s from a store in Florida called Dillian/Dillians (or something) and assure me it's real. Her feedback doesn't seeem to suggest she sells bad clothing. Link: http://tinyurl.com/63btzeg

    Nothing wrong with the style of the shoe, but I don't think Black shoes with gray pants will look good.

    The best way is to use a brannock feet measuring device. Any shoe store or cobbler would have one. Barring that you can follow this guide. http://shoes.about.com/od/fitcomfort...surefeet_5.htm

    It won't look bad, just formal and conservative.
