    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.

    Diaz this silhouette is excellent; shoulders are cut close; like the slope too; waist and quarters suit yr build perfectly. Wouldn't this look great in a Fox chalk stripe? Or in say a light Fresco-style cloth perhaps with a little less roping.

    Haha, that's ok, to each his own! [​IMG] I missed it was a bet, though. What was the bet about?

    Well, since we are discussing matters of style here, and this is the 'classic menswear' forum, an outfit like this is sure to raise some eyebrows. Nothing wrong with some colour or pattern per se, it's how it is done that counts.

    What shoes are those? They look like a mix between boat shoes and penny loafers and driving moccasins. They look very comfortable.

    Thanks! Yeah, widening the wrap gave the jacket some shape again. But this was MTM and it's a hit and miss, because the factory never gets it right and the next jacket could be completely different. In fact this one has a couple problems: back balance is slightly long and waist shaping is placed too low, so the vents, while not gaping constantly, "like" to do it. I started saving for bespoke a few months back, and perhaps by september/october I will be able to start with my first commission, hope it works out well! I've already chosen a new tailor.

    And yep, I agree a flannel chalk stripe DB would definately be awesome [​IMG]

    I'm pretty sure they're Allen Edmonds Kenwood. I have a pair and they are very comfortable :)

    Like I said, I don't think there's a single element that I like. But somehow I just enjoyed the whole shameless FU-ness of the effort.

    What a splendid jacket. Great stuff!

    Lovely combo: even the orange looks good.

    Crusty is as dapper as Healey Willan who was considered to be the "dean" of Canadian composers. Willan once described himself as "English by birth; Canadian by adoption; Irish by extraction; Scotch by absorption."

    Seems like most places are experiencing heat waves at this time. Alas, that is not the case here so more "cold weather" summer-wear is required. Unfortunately my wardrobe is significantly lacking such "transition" pieces, so I will again be wearing my favourite summer jacket that has already been featured quite heavily here this year. However, this time, to spice it up a little, I am fashionably wearing it one pocket flap in and one out :D.

    Thank you, CP, but in today's heat, my posting is over in the MC Casual section, and I fear that I cannot match Mr. Willan's cleverness in describing his birth, background, and choice of libation.

    Crusty, if this guy gets published and you don't, what little faith in humanity I was clinging to shall evaporate.

    Incidentally, I just realized we either work or live very near one another - I'm not sure which.

    Upper, I'm sorry I couldn't be there at the Garden Party. Next year for sure. Then again, in this heat, it might not have been the optimal time anywho.

    I sincerely doubt that the gentleman in question was of much interest to Bill Cunningham (the gentleman in question has attended the last four iterations of Tuesday night's party, and I've not seen his photo published anywhere), and I may have hallucinated, but I do think that Bill did take my picture, though that is hardly a guarantee that I will make the style section of the Sunday Times. That honor is usually reserved for those with much larger checkbooks than mine own.

    As for our proximity, I will PM you, but yes, I do believe we both inhabit that open-air sanatorium commonly known as Manhattan.
