    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.

    Agreed. Makes the big names look cheap.

    I'd welcome constructive criticism. Fit is more than passable from the ankles up. (Aside from the shitty dimple)

    JapanAlex is making reference to the comments I made about his polos that don't fit. I suggested he look into Kent Wang/Sunspel/J Crew slim fit

    For me, I would say that specs "feel" like a very informal shoe, on par with loafers. I'm actually not certain where they traditionally fit, but I mentally associate them with the racetrack, the golf course, and the seaside. So they felt very natural with a simple summery polo and chinos. Cordovan, by contrast, "feels" more countryside and rural to me and I'm not sure that would have been right for the rest of the outfit. Anyway, thanks for the feedback; it's all grist to the mill.

    It may be the picture, which is very dark, but the pants are too close in color to the jacket, the wrinkling in the shirt makes it appear too big, and the jacket appears shapeless because of the position of your arms and the darkness of the picture.

    It's the pic. Navy jacket, brown tie, grey slacks.

    These gents all have about three-quarter shoe coverage.

    I've been thinking about why you would cover your hand. Are you a security guard? Have you blacked-out the flashlight you were holding?

    It's big, black, cylindrical, and runs on batteries, but it's not a flashlight.

    You make some very good points HF. After thinking about this a bit more, instead of using the term "formal", I think "flashy" is more appropriate. The outfit is pretty subdued, and then you get to the shoes and BAM! I think that's more accurate than stating they are too formal.

    What is the fucking point of this comment? Stop worrying about whatever is in his mouth unless you have a personal wish to take its place.
