    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 doubt they do. However I've gotten to the point where if I'm not out at a client site (Management Consultant), I say fuck it and wear whatever won't make me sweat like hell on the walk to work.

    Coincidentally, I'm wearing a linen shirt today.

    However, I'm looking rather casual, as I've paired it with a beige cotton suit and a blue knit tie.

    Likely not all that different to the MUJI, although I'm not too familiar with MUJI's field jacket offering at present so cannot comment definitively. I do know that the fit will be considerably trimmer than a proper military manufacturer (e.g. ALPHA). The price is ludicrous, but I bought a SuitSupply piece of outwear similar to a field jacket, and it's going back. It's one of those things where my heart is set on the Aspesi, so I may as well buy that one instead of something else that I'll keep for a while, only to regret having bought in place of the one I really wanted.

    *Cue value discussion* :stirpot:

    I would also like comments on this if possible, I just bought two suits and want to establish a working relationship with a decent tailor - rather than going to different ones everytime

    the thought of putting on some layers if temperatures are forgiving, and a good (vintage) trench coat

    OK. But what inspires a person to walk out in heavy rain in just shirtsleeves on the way to work, or just a suit?

    I spose I know the answer. People don't give a sh#t, do they.

    Don't mention that S word - my first reaction is to get up and walk out of the room when I hear it!

    Is that to avoid spoilers or because you didn't enjoy it?

    Neither, it brings back memories of too many parental issues that I don't want to deal with. I will also say "Done!" very firmly as I storm out in my Tom Ford suit and C+J-clad feet.

    Speaking of linen shirts, the Gaz Man outlet at 401 Tooronga Rd, Hawthorn East (Melbourne) has some pretty decent 100% linen LS shirts on sale for $75. They are undarted and quite blousy, but for those with appropriate builds they might be a good option you can try on locally.

    Same outlet has reasonable linen SCs in navy and brown. No 36Rs and the 38 was significantly too big for me, but again, for the bigger guys worth a look I think.

    Have looked at Beretta mate, but think Aspesi is what I want. Olive green or navy :)
