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.

    Please dont mind the terrible cell phone camera quality. I took these in Brooks Brothers because immediately the jacket (Fitzgerald fit) felt too long and the pockets sat much too low. Im used to more of a contemporary Italian aesthetic. I dont even know if one could make a fit decision based on these pictures but I figured Id ask. I cant go with a short because there would not be enough material to get the sleeve length right. Only options are to shorten the skirt 1 inch or go MTM which would nearly triple the price.

    Does this jacket look good to you, not ok, not average but good? It certainly needs to be taken in and the sleeves need to be let out but I think the shoulders are good, just seems much too long compared to my usual fits.

    Really hoping to get some decent feedback on this as Im holding the blazer for 3 days. Thanks.

    It looks OK except for the sleeves as you stated. I'm not sure there is enough in the sleeve to let out. That's an awful lot of fabric to let out. As for taking it in, I don't think so. It looks pretty tight as it is...

    It looks tight because Im pulling it in with my left arm. Revisiting this again after a few hours it just looks too long and the pocket placement is still bothering me, might just have it MTM in Milano.
