    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.

    SVB, very cool man. I love Paris and was lucky enough to be able to spend significant time there on trial as a young soccer player as a guest of the Red Star Club in 1993. One of the best few months of my life...catch any football in the UK and France while you were there?

    Yeah, we got lucky with the weather I guess, as it was fantastic in Paris. I've got more photos coming from other spots as well. We were only in Paris for about a day & a half but we went all over. I speak a little bit of French, which as bad as it is, really helped us get around. Although on the day we left, I gave our cab driver the exact address for where to take us and he responded that there are four roads with that name in Paris. At that point even if he'd spoken English, I'd have been pretty stumped. Luckily he was able to figure it out based on the fact that we were just going to an Avis location, and luckily there's only one of those -- on one of the four streets with the same name. Overall, Paris was one of our favorite spots and I loved the chance to try my French, which I haven't really used since high school 10 years ago. Almost everyone I spoke to probably could have switched to English but didn't, which was awesome, since it forced me to speak French and hopefully say something somewhat intelligible. They seemed to be able to figure it out, at least.

    NYR that's awesome that you got to live there legitimately. That must have been a real blast. We saw some football here and there in different bars and pubs but never had a chance to watch a full match. We were on the move quite a lot. Beer, wine and/or pastis were usually the first priorities before any other entertainment.

    Need to go on a vacation like Stan's soon! Too bad none of my friends have the funds/same interest as I do.

    awesome, just the way it should be [​IMG] (although the snobby ex-Parisian part of me would somewhat scoff at the pastis part haha)

    Although the vast majority of my "go to" clothing is Epaulet, I have rarely posted fit or lifestyle pics. Having said that, I appreciate that you take the time to do so and like just about all of the pics you have posted.

    Thanks, P. I'm eager for the weather to cool down as I think I have a lot of better outfits to showcase. It became fun for me to take pictures daily. I tried doing a lifestyle picture once on Saturday at a local outdoor mall. The experience sucked as the sun was out in full force and the photographer was not that well so we had to take quite a few shots to reach an acceptable one, haha.

    Nice Stan! It looks like you got to go punting on the Cam. I studied abroad in Cambridge for six months during my junior year in college...damn, that was more than 10 years ago. Did you get a chance to walk around any of the colleges? I was at Trinity College. Hopefully you got to try some Old Speckled Hen, it's one of my favorite English ales and usually hard to find in the US.

    ^ It would have been funny if we had passed each other on the street and recognised each other based on Epaulet clothes. I'm used to being the only person who wears Epaulet in Cambridge.

    The length looks acceptable to me. I have some of my trousers hemmed to have a no break/high water stance like that. It may be the angle from the first picture, but the positioning of the buttons on the jacket looks kinda low, which throws off the trousers.

    In the context of that outfit, I think the pants look a little on the short side. If you're wearing a jacket + tie, I don't think you should be able to see your socks while standing straight up.

    I wouldn't do it myself, but I am usually a fan of wj4's no break look. But, he tends to do it on more causal outfits (at least in the pics I've seen here). In the more conservative outfit you posted, I think the trousers should at least reach the top of your shoes...it looks to be slightly above in your pics. I also agree about the buttoning point, it does look strangely low on that jacket.

    I agree...maybe 1/2 inch or so too short. Go through and look at WJ4's fits, didn't see any that short (or check out NYR's perfect hems).
