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.

    Who makes Barney's trousers? Are they considered good quality?

    Chances of finding a suit that looks like that OTR are about the same as winning the lottery and not spending it on dumb shit.

    I found this shirt that fit me in my grandpa's closet, but I have absolutely no idea what the hell I can wear it with. Any ideas?

    Denim, khakis, cargos, red or burgundy corduroy, lighter grey wool flannel, maybe donegal / tweed...

    Great looking shirt. Nice find, man.

    Thanks guys. I suppose it's much more casual than the rest of my shirts so I'll wear it when I'm not working,

    Are these t-shirts suitable to be worn together with chinos/shorts in the summer? Or are they really undershirts? I want an alternative to polos when I'm going to really hot places.

    Can anyone recommend a soft-shouldered, single-breasted, wool-mix 2 or 3 roll 3 button 38R mid-grey sport coat with patch pockets for $350 or under? Plain or a subtle pattern would be fine. It should look plain from a distance.

    If I'm going secondhand (which is fine), any particular makes I should be looking for?

    Many thanks in advance.

    Something like this is what I'm looking for but maybe slightly darker:

    Are there any shop recommendations?
    The forum search was of no help.

    Looks like it could be Tom Ford which will cost more than most bespoke in any event. If you are just looking for a similar glen plaid pattern, there are lots out there.

    I have to wear a gold pocket square with my tuxedo for an upcoming event (not my choice). What type of material do you think I should get? Hober has satin, grenadine, and shot silk. I'm leaning towards shot silk, but looking for opinions. Also, are there any other options out there?

    The golf umbrella has a larger canopy and has an aluminum shaft instead of a solid stick wood one.

    Tweed tie... am I doing it right?

    I suspect I'm not.

    Also, sorry my collar is a mess, apparently my collar extender exploded.
