    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.

    would a db suit look w/ peak lapels look ok on someone 5'9 and 140? also is buttoning the bottom button not a no-no when it comes to db suits?

    That's the perfect build for a db suit, IMO. If you weighed 250 pounds, then erhhmmm.....probably no.

    Double breasted is the most adaptable look in men suiting history

    My pleasure......

    Sadly the major outlets nowadays doesn't do much nice DB suit, and virtually no DB blazer or fancy sport coats....

    I don't understand why people find DB fussy as you put on your buttons and thats it

    DB suits look great when they have been well cut by a great tailor...

    We 're still seeing too many ill-fitted boxy cheap DB on the market and that's the problem...

    To be fair ,I was in London 2 weeks ago ,in Mayfair to be precise, and I only saw 2 db suits all afternoon.

    I find the look to be timeless, but somewhat maligned by: boxy cuts, the "swing dancing" fad, and by David Letterman's bad habit of wearing his DB unbuttoned.

    I'll be posting some suits in the FS forum soon, including a solid charcoal gray LB Sartorial (made, I believe, by Attolini). For those of you who are a 40R and looking for a brilliant suit, that's one to consider.

    The boxy cut and the black db from the eighties are crime against sarotial humanity...

    I used to hate db because of the above...

    The single breasted suit has become the suit in the streets all around the world...

    Double-breasted suits are still suffering from an image deficit but the connoisseurs cherish them..
