    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.

    Socks in general are indeed excellent... but I'm sure that's not what you meant. [​IMG]

    I used to be an advocate of loud socks (and coloured laces and other such things), but increasingly I've moved away from them, or at least I wear them less than I used to. I like colour and interest but with an already strong patterned jacket, which has a more subtle purple, the socks just seem to be a bit too much and actually detract from my appreciation of the coat and the fit overall, especially because of the additional cyan polka dots. I'd actually like them more either in a fit that was otherwise plainer, or in something really over the top in every way. I don't really go with the 'socks must match your trousers' rule, but I would have liked socks that picked up the purple tones of the jacket in a more sophisticated way - a dark subergine or something like that - or even the red-browns of the overcheck.

    Anyway, this is just where my personal sense of aesthetics is going, there's no 'true' or 'false' about it. And it's a minor point for a fit that is, as I said, excellent overall, but when a fit is excellent, I would expect the wearer to be at least interested in what for lesser mortals would be some way down the list of things with which they should be concerned!

    No one will see his socks. They have nothing to do with the fit. We only see them because he wanted to show the pants/socks/boot combo, but they in no way detract or add to the top block. imho.

    Spoo, those gloves are rather creepy. And yet. So awesome.

    I suspect you wear them around the house sometimes. I don't blame you.

    Are you quite sure you're on the right forum? This is the one where clothes (and details) matter - and they matter even if only the wearer can see them. However in this case, the wearer clearly wanted us to see them, so I gave some feedback. That's really all.

    My first contribution here. PS is sky blue, not puffing white silk here. ;) Would've chosen a more winter-like shirt if I had one. Otherwise I am pretty satisfied.

    It is snowy and cold so tweed and flannel keeps me warm.

    These boots make a classy statement. Certainly, they are an example how function can co-exist with style. As for snow, come to Michigan! Right now, the snowbanks by my driveway are nearly 4 feet deep. More snow is expected by the end of the week. The windchill, this morning, is -20 (F). I could use those boots, right now.

    I like the pairing of the (subtle) checked shirt with your POW suit. The solid tie is an excellent choice. Always, I appreciate the fact that your shoes are well shined.

    The colors and textures are plain, simple, and colorful. Very well done! The color and texture of that tie are undeniably appealing.

    I would like to see what this suit and tie would look like with a solid white shirt and a silk pocket square.
