    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 will most likely donate them. You don't write off the full MSRP, but there are calculators you can use. They aren't anything nice enough for Luxeswap (mostly BB) and no, I don't necessarily need the money.

    200+ ties (of which I don't use much more than 20 or so) + ~20 squares (of which I don't use more than 5 -6 regularly).

    Also, JRD, is it a bespoke project?

    Don't know if it's good in your opinion, but here's one of me ~2 years ago.

    I often wear Chelsea's with my windowpane suit as well. Unfortunately, they don't show up too well with the picture I have.

    Seeing as the Noodles thread discusses anything and everything, have you ever considered a different hairstyle, Claghorn? I'm sure there are many that would suit you better than a bieber cut.

    I just needed a haircut at that point. That's as long as it gets. Then I get it cut short. It grows to that length, then I cut it short again.

    Ah, that makes sense. I thought that length was your normal hairstyle.

    Fwiw, I usually get my hair cut every 3-4 weeks. The shorter your hairstyle, the more often you need to get it cut. When I had longer, surfer style hair I usually got a haircut every 2 months or so.

    I get mine every 4-6 weeks. I find haircuts incredibly annoying

    I hate getting haircuts.
    I can go from looking like a young college kid to looking like 10 years older than my age as my hair grows longer and longer.

    I don't mind them at all. I can read some emails on my phone or text someone, talk to the guys in the shop, listen to some good music or just zone out a bit, enjoy my drink and on top of it all walk out with an awesome haircut, feeling all refreshed. Perhaps you haven't been going to the right barbershop?

    Looks great! Is that a bit of collar gap? If so, ask your tailor to tighten the collar a bit while he's shortening the sleeves. Shouldn't be too costly.

    Thanks MKF!
    The collar gap should be ignored in this case since I ordered the wrong collars. Those are my beater shirts now.
    Clag graciously ordered me shirts with the right collars to resolve this issue.

    Obviously not one of my fits, but a quintessentially British look from one of Hardy Amies’s books.
