    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.

    Against my better judgement, I will start a thread about this topic later this evening.

    It will be called, "Practical Thoughts on Coherent Combinations for Beginners."

    It will not be about color. It will not be about texture. It will not be about pattern. It will not be about fit. It will not be a complaint about the standard of dress currently on the MC forum.

    And it will be about all those things anyway.

    I went through the entire CBD thread two nights ago, which is why I started collecting your photos and gdl's. I agree the conversation is often more valuable than the pictures. I have not seen the Andersen & Sheppard Expatriates thread, but that will be my next stop. I appreciate the suggestions!

    So glad I wore this tie today. And it's cashmere. All your contentions are now moot. :lol:

    Grazing on the carcasses of less senior members
    For those of you who commented on my lack of a pocket square (and to others who require a pocket square with every jacket): I feel less and less like a pocket square is mandatory. Sometimes, I prefer to let other elements of my fit do the talking. In today's case, for example, with a windowpane jacket and a check shirt, I felt a pocket square would be adding a superfluous focal point, and take what some might believe is an already disjointed fit, and make it even more jarring.

    In general, for odd patterned jackets combined with patterned shirts, my personal preference is frequently to forego the pocket square. I have no idea if this is technically correct or not, but the mere fact that it even occurs to me means it is most likely as rooted in good science as gravity and calculus.

    Please note: I do, however, always carry a handkerchief to dry tears of ecstasy from the glassy eyes of smitten females.

    I like nearly everything that starts with "against my better judgment" when it is from someone whose judgment I respect. Hilarity, intentional or not, typically follows.

    Thanks for reminding us of this thread, TRINI. While much just has to be left to the eye and taste, there are things that I see working well together over and over again. One that I've been noticing recently is similarly-spaced lines and dots/neats/florals. I've reblogged a bunch of them on my tumblr. Every time I see the two together it's a win. Thin lines and thick stripes (on a tie usually) are another combination that is a good place to start.

    The jacket is probably the correct length then and you just need to pull your cuffs thru a bit more maybe.

    No Corneliani is not only for young people, but i think their marketing is directed toward the younger who can take the slimmer fits etc.

    Tweed and white shirts don't mix. I look forward to Vox's instructional thread.
