    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've got a dark brown crewneck sweater that's got a small hole in the elbow, so I've decided to patch the elbows. I'm looking for some high quality elbow patches in a suitable color, and found this: http://www.domesticleather.com/Data_...PatchStock.htm The suede lambskin patches seem interesting and they have a lot of colors available; any opinions on this manufacturer or any recommendations on a manufacturer or color? I'd like to get some variation of brown but the've got over a dozen to choose from so it's a bit difficult, some advice would help steer my decision making, thanks!

    Ever settle on elbow patches? Looking to have a tailor add a set to a thick, outerwear grandpa sweater as well as a tweed blazer.

    A friend of mine has this done. He found some random ass website ordered suede and took it to a dry cleane to sew on. Has worked well for him. I don't think you have to put too much thought into it, but I would recommend asking a dry cleaner what to use because if you get a leather that is too fragile or whatever washing it will be an issue.
