1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    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.

    Odd jacket sans tie is a fine look. It does not cease to be so just because the jacket is blue and double breasted. It's fine if you don't care for it or would not wear it, but it is not objectively wrong.

    I have a grey flannel DB 2x1 from Kilgour that is one of my favourites. I had one made recently in 517 navy fresco.

    This one looks so relaxing. The coat, that is.

    1 AND 3 for me..

    The first one looks like a TF suit...

    Not my cup of tea but it looks very good on him.

    I like the simple elegance of the black gentleman.

    # 1's lapels look ridiculously huge, as if he's about to take off and fly away for winter - on another note, thanks to lordsuperb for keeping this thread alive with some awesome posts.

    That seam across the shoulder is dreadful. I criticized one of his coats like that in a forum that I was unaware he was in that the coat was terrible rtw or m2m and certainly not bespoke. Some people were not pleased.

    The king and his new suit of clothes went for a ride and only a little child said, "Why is the king naked?" Nobody had spoken up, so the king wore his oldest suit. Oh well.

    Other than the shoulder seam what else seams to be the problem of the jacket? It looks nice.

    To me, maybe not you, some of his garments are shapeless bags. Garments should have some distinguishing lines to distract from the not so good. So many young people have natural nice lines, but when we get older the tailors knowledge and wit can really help. Of course, some tailors have more knowledge. Like so many things knowledge, wealth, skills, etc., are accumulated.

    Now that I am older I need to rethink my own clothes. And it is a challenge I didn't want to do.
