    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.

    The lapels point to Mars, double fail. Is it just me, or is it currently the style to have jacket buttons and the thighs of trouser seams pulling? What's with the short pants thing? That seems to be the style in most of the last 2 pages, excepting HRH & HRH.

    To think the Duke gave up the kingship to be with this haggardly strumpet from Baltimore is truly astonishing.

    He was also, knowingly or unknowingly, a Nazi sympathizer.

    While I'm not into the fabric, the silhouette and overall look of this jacket are spectacular.

    It looks like there may not be any darts in the front. If there are they are made by an expert hand.

    Anyone know the tailor of this?

    This whole no sock thing has to end. A suit, no matter what fabric, is ment for some type of buisness to which socks are a crucial finishing touch.

    I don't think all suits require socks, but this is one that does.

    I can't help being annoyed by the way the tie is tied.

    I just do not understand this. In what situation could one arrive at a meeting in a suit without socks and be normal? This might be some fashion situation but I fail to believe that I could take a person seriously for one moment if they wished to negotiate a deal only to have me notice that he waltzed into my office without socks.

    Is this some Miami Vice thing?

    I'm not talking about suits in worn in a business environment, like the grey one being discussed. I mean casual suits. Made of cotton or linen or some other interesting casual fabric. Worn without a tie, with loafers or moccasins can look great without socks.

    It's right for that collar.

    I don't actually mean the size of the knot; I mean the way the outer edge of the front blade is curved forwards rather than both sides curving backwards with the dimple centred in the middle. Here is an artistic rendition of the cross-section of the front blade: [​IMG]

    My present commission with Xavier Custom Tailors of Toronto, with a navy pinstripe 150s wool from Woodhouse. First 2 px: first fitting. [​IMG][/IMG] [​IMG] At this stage, a lot had not been done: sleeves not attached, buttoning point not fixed, sides not taken in, pockets not cut and front darts had not been added. I also noticed at this stage that the front was a wee bit shorter than the back and got it fixed. Also settled on length of jacket. For reference, I am 5ft 6 tall, with a 41" chest and 34" waist.

    3 weeks later: [​IMG][/IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] Button holes done, sleeves attached, also happy with buttoning point. Remembered at last minute the jacket should be ventless but I tend to have a big ass....[​IMG] Plus, from a utility point of view, it means I can sit with the jacket buttoned. Forgot to mention that pants had not been hemmed yet. Final fitting this week. Should have retaken first pic dead on but oh well.

    Looks very good, except for the break on the pants. Who is your tailor?
