    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.

    Great fits so far! I wish I had the time to use my DSLR. The coat is one of my first MTM pieces, and while it does fit okay, the button point is way too high, and does not help flatter my overall stature. My (iphone) submission:

    There's a subtle subliminal message here: this is what might happen to your home if you don't vote for sugarbutch [​IMG]...

    Is a brown tie one of your top 10 staples?

    No. In fact, the brown tie has come quite late into my life and we sometimes struggle to get along. But thanks to you guys I am learning to love it. My tie, from Mark Marengo, is a limited edition silk Grenadine Paisley in chocolate.
