    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.

    Had the chance to wear a 3-piece today. It doesn't come very often. Suit is WW Chan and the million buttons on the vest was by design. I tried for some balance between colours: purple, blue and white. Sorry about the vest pic, the angle is too extreme.

    The tie is not to my taste, but whatever. I can say objectively, however, that the hank should never be used, especially not in combination with that tie. You should regard this as an immutable law of physics.

    Canta, I agree with you just about all the time, but I have to disagree on this. A navy dot tie is a classic and looks great with a grey suit.

    sugarbutch, at this point should I run screaming like a newbie cause my feelings are hurt or spend whole paragraphs defending my choices? ah, it doesn't matter. Immutable law of physics duly noted.

    So what I see of the suit, shoes and socks I quite like (including the umpteen button waistcoat). Not sure about that tie and shirt combo. Can we get a full picture of the suit (I am debating on giving Chan a shot on my next trip to HK)?

    Looks good combo-wise but isn't the neck on the shirt a little loose? Correct me if I'm wrong, please. [​IMG]

    Thanks. Perhaps it was the pose. At rest, it lightly touches my neck all the way round.

    MisterFu, WW Chan is GREAT if and only if you are confident in what you are looking for. They botched a couple of jackets for me but they made it right (even paying the import duties on the jackets they sent to Brazil and were a mess). Here are some full body pics (mostly tpics from traveling or relaxing with the missus (one at the Opera). I recommend them, but I know there might be others that fare beter cost/benefit wise.

    And about the 242339042 buttons (7, really), yeah, at 6'5" I don't see why have only 4 or 5 buttons with a lot of space in-between.

    Sugarbutch, you gave a newbie a compliment - even if backhandedly - should you now feel disgusted at yourself? As you can see from below, hankies are not my thing, so I really mean duly noted in the last post.

    Let the hating begin! :) - yes, I am begging for attention, can I get at least 5 pity thumbs up out of this? I think I got enough XP to advance...

    The compliment was not at all backhanded.
