1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    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.

    Ok #4 it is! Order placed.

    Thanks a lot guys.

    @Monkeyface I have almost the same spec with little waist suppression, swelled edges, wider sleeves (just realized i need bigger sleeves) and 4.25 inch lapel with moderately high gorge.

    All jokes aside @in stitches , I'm wearing a pair of AE Daltons right now and I'm pretty sure I'm going to sell them.

    I've worn other boots and shoes that look so much more refined and clunky than these do to the point where I feel like I probably won't enjoy these very much for having them.

    However, the eagle county boots look really good, not just for AE, but in general. Some of the MTO's on the SF thread were really gorgeous. The last is one of their sleekest, most euro looking lasts, and will make for a good boot. Now to polish off and sell my daltons...

    No. It's a grey worsted wool jacket and the pattern screams suit to me. There are very few suits where the jacket works well as a separate outside of more casual things like linen or seersucker.

    +1 on the above.
    I too havr observed that trying to make a suit jacket into a sc usually fails. It appears SFers can easily spot an orphaned suit jacket.

    Kind of what I feared at the back of my mind. Probably hold off on this altogether as I need sc's more than I need a full suit. Cheers, guys.

    Someone teach me about carmina lasts. Is it usually one size up for US sizing? Which lasts fit narrow and which fit wide?

    There's a Carmina sizing thread on SF which has all your info.

    Rain, Oscar are wider.

    Forest, Soller, Simpson are (I think) medium width.

    Alcudia is very narrow.

    Rule of thumb: Carmina size = US size minus 1.

    What's with SWD's WAYWRN thread?

    Clownish, laughable outfits like this...

    [​IMG]

    ...with 106 thumbs and counting?

    If I saw someone walking down the street wearing this, I'd laugh out loud. I don't care how expensive and in-the-know it is. It's inherently ridiculous.

    I'm struggling to give you good natured advice... so I'll settle for a GTFO.

    ^^ I don't pretend to understand SW&D. I've generally been comfortable with the whole SW&D is a different aesthetic idea, especially since I don't spend a ton of time there, but if that gets 106 thumbs, I don't have a clue how to explain it.
