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.

    mrjames = hermes man?
    a good fit is somewhere between that rl model whose shirt is painted on his body, and that dead hollywood twink everyone seems to worship

    agreed that the sleeves are short, and maybe the waist could be taken in. But the arm holes are already as high as I think they can physically get, they do cut into my underarms! I'd have argued that the shoulders weren't wide enough, i prefer a more structured look- maybe one day i'll get shoulder padding put into a shirt

    just to clarify the aesthetic i'm after, it's somewhere between dior homme and normality. I guess this probably runs counter to what SF usually looks for, if my shirts fit like this (but with shorter sleeves) i'd be happy [​IMG]


    This "look" is sickening and so end of last decade.

    maybe a little big- not huge, but not exactly tailored


    this is about what i'd consider to be good fit

    That fit only works with cotton/elastine mix shirts. I have a few 100% cotton shirts with that fit and I can't fucking move.

    Uh... no.

    it's not unrealistic by any means (imo), skin tight but tailored so the seams line up perfectly with the joints, yeah it is probably pinned at the back, but the photos I posted are not that far off the RL fit. Yes there is a comfort tradeoff- and the tailoring is so hard to get right as 1/4 inch really makes or breaks the fit. But it is achievable without pins

    Not at all the same fit.

    Good luck breathing and doing everyday activities, including driving.

    James Dean or Heath Ledger? And what did either of them have to do with shirt fits?

    Take out the "H" buckle and I don't see anything passÃ[​IMG] about it unless the frame of reference is strictly limited to the runway.

    Breathing and driving are overrated anyway.
