    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.

    On the subject of pocket squares from Vanda that are still available, this one is a personal favorite:

    This is exactly what I wore to the wedding.
    This might not be SF compliant (if there is such a thing) but I tried with very limited time.
    Father in-law wanted to buy me a suit.
    Wife picked this one out and wanted me to wear this instead of a tuxedo.
    I wanted this wedding to be all about her so I did as she wished.
    I had no shirts or ties. So I was able to muster this $15 tie and a $80 shirt in an hour.
    This was actually quite fun but shopping for clothes in a foreign country is just really challenging.
    I had to work with a lot of unknowns but tried and made the best of it.
    Shoes are my first C&Js.
    NOTE(S): The first button on the jacket is way way too high. and this was a RTW suit and the only alterations done were on the pants.

    THANK YOU ALL FOR THE PS AND SORRY TO CLAGS FOR NOT BEING ABLE TO MAKE IT. I HAD TO TAKE WIFE HOME AFTER THE DINNER. BUT THANK YOU ALL AGAIN!

    It was a bit challenging to put together that fit but I did my best. Thanks again for the bling bling, Stitchie. She tried on a ring size 4 and it still was big. She needs balancing beads or something.
    I will get back to you as soon as possible on that other subject.

    Well the Cantarelli came in and I'm not sure what I think. First thing that jumped out at me was it was too short. Sleeve length is close maybe a little short. I have a fucked up right shoulder that throws all my fits off a bit. Thoughts? Salvageable? I tried to have the camera chest height to avoid weird angles but I can't get rid of my birthing hips no matter the angle.

    Too short and just kind of not really shaped right for you IMHO. I'm not a tailor so I won't try to diagnose further than that, but from the photos, doesn't look like a very good fit.
