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.

    Yeah, no kidding. There isn't a dry cleaner within 200 mikes that I trust with my stuff. Luckily, mild climate and regular brushing means I can go quite a while between cleanings with a decent rotation.

    On topic of charcoal jackets, thoughts?

    Maybe it's sacrilege but I think it'd look okay with dark denim.

    +1. Buttoning point seems high, lapels narrow, fabric not particularly attractive.

    I do have a pretty good place here, but I really prefer not to. So I almost never dry clean my stuff.


    Nothing there to like.

    I just mean the fabric not the cut. I kind of like it in a darker gray.

    Thanks TM.

    I just need a light pressing, no dry cleaning! I'll call them tomorrow.

    No, bad for all jackets (at least according to jeffreyd, who knows way more about this than anyone here)

    Not sure who this great looking dude is but this is the suit I am awaiting on. But as @kulata has pointed out, I think the suit below does not help diversify my suit collection, especially given that I have the blue glen plaid. So I guess it's a no-brainer on the grey flannel?

    So are you buying my suit how? Yes, you could really use some grey in your rotation.
