    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.

    I think @Claghorn's dislike of grey suits stems in large part from the fact that they make far inferior BlazerSuits compared with shades of blue and he likes his clothing to convey more of a hobbyist vibe than a man forced to wear a suit vibe.

    Yeah, exactly =[ If it were wider I'd have bought it already.

    I interviewed this afternoon. I removed my tie. This is what the world has come to. Dressing down for interviews.

    Had you gone with a knit, it would not have been necessary to do so.

    I haven't been all that thrilled with the quality of SuSu's ties. I do have a couple. Hardly wear them. Not quite wide enough, don't dimple well.

    SuSu value proposition falls off a lot on all other items, IME - squares, ties, socks, shirts, sweaters. All those items are based in my experience. Other items just look cheap to me - bags, shoes. Ties are really bad, small, bad knots and not wide enough. Which is too bad b/c some look quite good.

    Yeah, no. Any tie was too much tie. I even had second thoughts about the jacket, but I gotta be me, right?

    Looks like I"m going to Madrid next month and was hoping to pick up some Carmina's while there. It wasn't quite clear to me with the recent price increase...Does that raise the price at the store front thus putting it out of the $350USD range?

    If I were to get a checked Havana, it would definitely be this:

    It seems @Claghorn has got the blues.

    My outfit today is totally without blue but for the florets on my tie. And 3 of my last 5 jackets haven't been blue.

    Progress, even if slow, is still progress, Claghorn.
