1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    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.

    hmm you think so? the bottom of the jacket ends where i can cup the bottom with my hands right at my knuckles does this mean i have short arms then? O_O hmm i wonder if getting a slightly longer jacket would get rid of the "bell bottom" effect that i have with these suits?
    thanks i still need to learn how to handle the darn ps properly ... silk does not like to "fold" ... and my puff was just too out of control

    Yep, but it needs a bit of work on the jacket. I wanted to wear it a few times before I returned it for tailoring.

    I see what you're saying. Thank you.
    :) The opera was great! Onegin himself was Croatian, I think, but did a really good job singing in Russian. I understood almost every word. Olga, Tatiana and Lenskiy were all Russian singers, so, naturally, I understood them as well.
    Victor, you are one of the most interesting posters here. Your diversity and photography is amazing. Also, I could only imagine how many Russian women's hearts you break just by walking past them. For their sake, I hope you don't take the metro.
    Thanks. :happy:
    I'm slim, but not terribly athletic. I don't work out, all I do is various cardio like dancing, playing tennis, drinking, etc. But with photos like this, the closer you are to the camera, the more it "bubbles" the middle part making the subject look slightly chunkier. Move away from the camera like VictorSF does for better proportions.
    I disagree with the bow-tie. I couldn't possibly move the tripod any further away so my head would fit in the photo. But if it were there, you'd see that it's rather large (thanks, Dad) and the bow-tie was made proportional to my head rather than my neck. If that makes sense at all... Would you mind helping me out with a pocket square here? What would you wear? I had trouble finding something that would look good. Whenever that happens with other suits or coats I just go for a white linen, but here I felt it was too close to the color of the suit.

    I think he was asking if the lobbs are bespoke, but I might very well be wrong.

    VictorSF, you are a machine!
    Style with technical precision, without getting mechanical!

    Make it happen.


    This is sort of a mid-event fit pic. Earlier I was wearing a tie. Later, I lost my pants.

    Looks like you sold all the furniture just to buy another combo :) . Just a joke
    Really nice. I dig specially the jacket/trousers/shoes ensemble. Not so much for the tie.

    Cheers

    ok
    i think i've made up my mind regarding my gray plaid suit purchase
    i can do a mid gray suit... i can do a plaid suit... but not a mid-gray plaid suit
    and i look better in darker suits
    (thanks to the other poster who articulated the reason why... because of my hair color and skin tone)
    so i will have to return the gray plaid and just save that money for a better ... suited... suit for me

    [​IMG][​IMG]
    nevermind that i am comparing a $340 hickey freeman suit to a $5200 tom ford

    Good move ^^^. The darker color really does look better on you.

    Romeo, both of those suit jackets look too large for you by a couple of sizes.

    but they are not...
    please keep in mind that these pictures were taken in the dressing room before any alterations
    the tom ford euro48R fits my shoulders snugly
    the hickey freeman 38R ... yeah i think it may be a tad big in the shoulder
    i used to wear 40R's but i dropped 30 pounds since last year

    I'd have to disagree with that.

    I think this would work a million times better, if all the black was brown!

    Something about the scarlet tie made me feel obliged to wear black shoes, but I resisted that urge. Did I make the right choice? Deets inside...
