    @notification emails have been added, in response to user requests

    Attached images are now Full Size by default

    Users are now all allowed three (3) links in their signature files,

    SSL certification is now in place so you can all browse securely.

    The server has been reconfigured so that site speeds will improve.

    Notice: Right now the site is slow because we are fixing all the images from the past 4 months. Many of you noticed that these were missing, and we are fixing that problem now. Unfortunately, it is taking up a lot of resources and causing the site to be slow.

    Oh, and don’t forget to head over to the Styleforum Journal, because we’re giving away two pairs of Carmina shoes to celebrate our move!

    Gentlemen,

    I currently have the sport coat in a Holland and Sherry wool/cashmere pictured here (sorry, only photo I have of it on at the moment):

    Anyways, I like it quite a bit but after going over the website I've noticed the disdain for GP numbers as odd jackets and thought, well it would be nice to have the pants... So I emailed the tailor in question and they have just enough of the remaining fabric to make a pair. Now I'm curious what everyone thinks of the overall pattern (size, etc) and how they feel about the jacket on its own.

    I know I would wear the pants as separates and love it, I just now that I'd really have to look for an excuse to wear the full suit together. Would anyone consider it appropriate for a wedding..?

    I prefer the jacket on it's own @dako . It's not something I would wear to a wedding. I wouldn't want to stand out and take anything away from the bridge and groom. Jacket looks nice btw.

    Thank you. Yes, it is quite loud for a wedding. The question would be whether the pattern is loud enough to stand alone as a jacket.

    I would say yes, very much indeed.

    I currently wear it with olive, black (cardinal sin, right?), and charcoal trousers/chinos. Just had a pair of light blue and dark cream made. Any other suggestions?

    It might be appropriate for a country wedding in the UK, should such an opportunity occur.
