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.

    Cheers,

    maybe i'm missing something, to my eyes his suits have tons of shape. perhaps the problem is too much shape. they are hardly shapeless. of course he is old and not skinny, so it only natural he prefers a relaxed cut. a painted on look would be ridiculous on him.

    His clothes look comfortable and he dresses well. The stripes on his lapels run at an odd angle, I wonder what the reasoning is?

    Are called "striscie a foglia di olivo" " ( olive leaf's sripes).

    He's not exactly young. I think his bone structures has regressed hence the droopy shoulders on some his clothes. It looks like he enjoys wearing his clothes over an extended period of time.

    I like the gray suit, the midnight tux, and Chow's SB tux.

    Think I prefer the narrower-striped navy suit.

    EDIT: Jeffrey Deitch, who's an art-world mover and shaker. Used to run the MOCA in LA. The Chinese guy with the lei is Michael Chow, who founded Mr. Chow (and has a pretty good art collection). I don't recognize anybody else, because I'm in one of those scruffy applied arts.

    That shoulder seam looks similar to what you'd see on jackets from the 20's/Jazz Suits. Here's a boating blazer which illustrates the seam more clearly.

    That is not the same. In the old days the seam started back a little behind the neck, and some tailors still do this, and they are slanted. Some believe that seam should be out of sight from the front. There are a number of ways to do the shoulder seams, but none of them should be clumsy.

    He is a nice man for allowing so many photos of him to be taken and posted on line. He is a stylish man.

    That's "Nucky's girlfriend." Neither he nor J.N. let the "duckface" stop them, and given the chance, I wouldn't either.


    She's five eight, so he must be, what, at least 3 foot 10, whatever he's called.


    Paz de la Huerta, and she's double breasted.

    Lordsuperb, you could be a goodwill ambassador of Double Breasted Style! The cuts are flawless. I share the exact same love of line & form.
