    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.

    Thanks for the feedback. I was hesitant to pour any more money into the tailoring if it was too dated looking. Given your feedback I think I'll go ahead and pony up for some taper and an increase to the cuff width (currently 1.5"). Thanks again!

    Appreciate it. I'll probably try and do a fit pic at some point.

    S,

    I haven't been around many fit threads for the past few months.

    As I got dressed this morning, I was thinking about stripes on stripes. I'm starting to think they're the easiest pattern-on-pattern combination to get right. They either work (by varying the scale), or they don't. It's not like two neats/paisleys, where it's possible for a tie and square to almost work. There's no gray area.

    Here's a shot I copied from Mister Mort.

    A good point, but the question is why they work or don't work. I think one of the reasons they can work is shown in your picture, which is about the intensity of the contrast in the shirt stripes. Basically, low contast on the shirt stripes, so the pattern really resolves to almost solid from distance, allows you to get away with high contrast on the tie stripes. I'm not sure about vice-versa. There are other reasons...

    I hadn't thought about that, but it's true. I think, in general, it's tough to do a shirt that's more vivid/saturated than the tie.

    330CK, that's awesome.

    Swag arrived yesterday from affiliate Andrew Lock. Thanks @AnGeLiCbOrIs for all the goodies. I looked at all those fine things laid out before me and thought to myself something I often do when I think of my beloved: "that is some damn fine and bountiful booty right there". Raw silk tie, mother of pearl cufflinks and iGent-staple double monks, below.

    P.S. Is from our very own @Tirailleur1's Post Imperial. See what I did there?

    That's your light gray DB odd jacket paired with light blue trousers? That seems to work well, though I think you shouldn't fear trousers a shade or two darker, either.

    Those Lock monks, man. They're like the perfect color. I don't need more brown calfskin shoes. I generally have pretty strong defenses against double monks, too. But still, every time...

    The links are great, too.
