    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.

    It's just a mid weight wool. Pal Zileri if it makes a difference.

    Clags where did you get your shirts pre-Luxire. I don't see many cutaway collars in RTW.

    Washington shirts, same place as Noodles. In Seoul. I own a single RTW shirt. I hate it.

    But we have different styles, so mine will probably get worn more often.

    Do you make it do the bidding of all the other shirts?

    I don't understand this. Since a shirt is practically underwear you're fine with wearing cheap fabrics that feel like sandpaper instead of paying a bit more for something that feels comfortable?

    Most def.

    That was what I was getting at. Not to mention the fact that I have said I have been unsure of your shirt choices, but they work for you.

    I've never had an uncomfortable shirt. Maybe my skin isn't as sensitive or refined as y'all's :)

    Actually, that's not true. My one RTW shirt is uncomfortable.

    Think you're right. Here is a true nailhead from Vanda. Maybe they could spec one in dark green.

    I love when menswear folks argue about street wear.

    Also, if a 70 dollar shirt feels like sandpaper maybe you need thicker skin, yeah?

    Maybe you need softer skin
