1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    you would think that, but you would be wrong. a DB that does not fit right will look baaaaaaad. shoulders, chest, length... if its not right it looks wonky.

    Very nice! I have this misconception(?) that DBs work on only certain body types but I don't think there is such a rule.
    I mean, the rule that you have to be at least 6 ft in order to don a 3 button suit exists and somewhat is followed but nothing like that exists for DBs?

    It's $12. It seems versatile enough having a brownish base.

    Stop obsessing over height. No rules whatsoever for DBs, except that they shouldn't have notch lapels.

    H&B would be great with a CBd suit.

    Other one do not like.

    The rule, imo, is that the cut of the suit, be it DB or SB, 2 button or 3, should be right for your build. Thats it.
