    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.

    lol they're pretty out there. I ordered them in a cognac color, but the maker couldn't source it so I settled for this, which I'd only seen in pics. I think of them more as a nite-time shoe

    Your fits are always well thought out (and well-cut) and they gotta a real 'working wardrobe' feel from u.

    Yes, it's a suit and I completely, and with no shame, ripped off Manton.

    I have those socks. I like them quite a lot. I wear them casually though.

    Thanks for the advice and compliment.
    Close, I weigh 148 lbs. I wont be buying anymore short jackets but for now I will have to work with what Ive got. I will probably start purchasing from Kent Wang MTO so I can get a slim fit with the proper length.

    Maybe too many patterns, I think a plain tie may have worked better. Is it possible to have too much blue?

    All great pieces seperately but not working together IMO. Mostly I think the jacket (which looks to have blue and black checks) is clashing with the tie (blue and brown). But probably as you thought, generally to much blue & too many patterns.

    thanks. funny thing about this ensemble is that I didn't plan to own a linen suit; I decided to wear something other than seersucker and got a cream linen jacket, then arrived home and found out it exactly matched my linen trousers. even the buttons match. they are the same brand...
