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.

    I think I would let out the sleeves but I've decided not to bother. Bu I don't really like short jackets anyway, so I'll chalk it up as a rookie mistake and move on. Now, there's an empty spot in my closet that needs to be filled....... :D

    Most of whom no longer post fits here, unfortunately. And I don't think many people who know what they are talking about are claiming that Victor is 'better' than any of those posters. Why not concentrate on giving the kind of feedback you think is useful to whoever deserves it and posting some great fits yourself (i.e. leading by example), rather than being negative?

    Viktor has been attacked personally several times. There is no double standard here, he is simply along with Spoo the most interesting regular contributor to this thread at the moment. It makes no sense to compare either to posters, who have left MC or the whole StyFo for good.

    I will not comment on discussions me. This is a position of principle. Thank you for your understanding.

    Back to the subject of style! [​IMG]

    I try to give as much feedback as possible, both to regular and newer members.
    I'd like to share fits of mine but I do neither posses the clothes nor the camera to do so, but I have never stated differently.

    I think I/we should listen to Victor and bring this thread back to the discussion about style, I apologise for the distraction.

    Had a few clients this morning then an outdoor party so went a little more casual. Wanted to give a fall element to my royal blue SC so I went with new caramel chinos I got from J.Crew. Obviously the quality is not as good as something from epaulet or howard yount, but the fit on the new 484 chinos is perfect in the seat and waist for me and tapers very nicely without being skinny and decent on sale for price. I got them in some non staple colors for fun in the fall (rust, caramel, purple, light blue). Outdoor pictures capture color best

    Edit: wore brown suede BB peal chukkas

    The chest looks very pronounced in the mirror shot but that might be due to the angle the picture was taken.
    The jacket's sleeves seem long, we can't see the shirt's cuffs.
    I love the colour of your pants and the triple patch pocket jacket!
    The shirt is great as well, even though I don't like non BD collars worn without a tie.
    What kind of shoes were you wearing?

    Recently, I wore only summer jackets and suits.

    All are made from mixtures of fabric linen / silk / wool. And, by definition, are not strict, and summer casual variants.

    Therefore, a choice of pockets, as less formal.

    On the subject of shoes: as these all Summer suit casual fabric linen / silk / wool, the use of Loafers, which is predominantly a summer footwear - it seems very appropriate.

    Collars on shirts, yes, I totally agree that they are not very good, but what the hell, I can not alter a 100 my sewed shirts! [​IMG]
    It is very expensive and generally lazy.[​IMG]

    Here are the new shirts will be booking with the corrected collar.
    Thank you for helping me to understand this question, guys![​IMG]






    As for my style - I think I need a lot more work and learn that it was good.
    I very much do not understand and try to learn what to understand.
    To do this, it takes years and years.

    Thanks a lot, guys, what can I learn from your example and your comments.
    Thanks to you, I'm starting to understand a little.
    And I am happy that I can continue to learn from people on this board![​IMG]

    I consider myself weak newcomers in a style that is still much to understand and learn.[​IMG]
    I am very far from just up to the "not bad" and even further to "good."[​IMG]
    And as to the knowledge of the truth at all an abyss.

    And I'm glad you told me to what I have shortcomings and failures. It helps me to become better.[​IMG] [​IMG]

    Thank you again guys!
    My teachers.
    My friends.
    My colleagues

    Only complaints: Trousers too short and right sleeve caught. I get why some are calling for socks; the reason being that, with a suit, sockless looks a little odd. Doesn't bother me too much, personally, but it may come off cleaner.

    I am surprised no one has mentioned SOS's trousers ... IMO the jacket is pretty good but the drape on the pants could be a lot better. Those lines are a clear sign of poor drape. I think SOS is slightly bow legged and that wasn't factored in by the cutter. Just a thought ... Could be wrong about the bowleggedness ...

    what a great cloth on that jacket LayeredPlayer- prefer this to a more contrasty overcheck




    I didn't read Louis' comments as an 'attack' so much as a bit of eye-rolling and frustration at a group dynamic. IIRC Louis began his post with a bunch of positive stuff about Victor- trying not to play the man. Call me crazy but I'm sure I've occasionally seen popular guys get a ton of thumbs for second-rate fits when a few honest 'What were u thinking, man? That's just wrong!' comments would have been in order. Meanwhile some good fits are overlooked because the poasters are nobodies.... 'What's his post count? time here? how've people responded b4? who's he talk with? how are they rated ?'' etc etc Wasn't that Louis' point? High school + better clothes. brutal sometimes, mostly reasonable.
