    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.

    I say yes. Not your best choice, but not bad.

    What color sweater would look best over a blue plaid shirt?

    I was thinking off-white or light grey.

    Nothing wrong with a DB sport coat. Most will tell you not to wear it with an OCBD, but I do it on occasion.

    I am looking for a nice v-neck sweater. I walt'z over to my local J. Crew and Express yesterday and tried on their selections. I tried on this Express sweater (http://bit.ly/yuuTPs) and this J. Crew sweater (http://bit.ly/ysXg2D).

    Here are pictures of me in a size M Express: http://imgur.com/a/1pkp8
    Here are pictures of me in a size S J. Crew: http://imgur.com/a/Kuq7K
    Here are pictures of me in a size M J. Crew: http://imgur.com/a/qWtG3
    Here's a different color M in J. Crew: http://imgur.com/Guk4a

    For context, I am 5'10", 38" chest, 32" waist, ~31.5" sleeves (t-rex arms so I'm cool with getting anything shortened). THANK YOU for any feedback on which one is best, color, etc, or whether there is something better out there. I am brand new to not dressing like an idiot and am clueless about what looks good.

    Does anyone have an answer to this?! I've been trying for over a week to post a well thought out, highly researched thread, for which I would like an answer on the sooner side. It looks like I can quote posts now, but I still can't start a thread, and I'm getting a bit impatient. I can't even find the name of a moderator to contact. Any help?

    Thanks!

    you can email to the feedback forum and you can also check the support thread to contact a mod.... you may need to be a senior member before you can start threads... I'm not sure about that but it's probably something like that. You only have 9 posts so you're still new. Hang in there...

    Thank you! I have sent a message. It's just a bit frustrating since I have seen members with less posts starting threads.

    Plus, I don't get a message saying that I need to be here longer to start a thread. It says that since I am new it needs to be reviewed by moderators. It's been over a week. Review it already!! haha

    Thanks again for your help!

    When you guys get your dress shirts tailored, what is the general rule of thumb for how long they will be? I would think that it matters if you're going to be tucking it in or not?

    I think the general rule of thumb is not to mico-manage your tailor. Let their time tested experience do the work. They usually ask if you will be wearing untucked at any time, fwiw.

    The reason I ask is because I bought these fitted dress shirts from Express that could possibly be an inch or so too long but it might not be worth it to pay and get it tailored the extra inch or so

    I think I'll just bring it to the tailor and let her decide if i should leave it

    Honestly, I think you should never have a dress shirt untucked.

    I don't have an issue during the summer with an OCBD that's fairly fitted and has the bottom shortened, but yeah, proper dress shirts really never need to have the tails out.
