    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.

    Clags, I like everything about this except the tucked pocket flaps (or welted, flapless pockets).

    I know that you don't like flapped pockets, but it seems to me that an odd jacket like this - especially one with a ticket pocket - looks best with flapped pockets. There just something about a welted ticket pocket (or a ticket pocket with the flap tucked in) that looks a bit odd/incongruous.

    Cox, I like this as a casual, "F-U" suit and I think that it's all great except for the tie. I would have gone for a tie in a different colour, probably a blue, rather than a tie that was so similar to the shirt colour.

    As an aside, it's nice to see a Gerald Genta watch - is it pre- or post- the Bulgari acquisition of GG?

    You should post some pics of the watch + outfit in the watch appreciation thread.

    Blind flap hatred will lead you down a dangerous path.

    Clags is right to hate flaps. Damn them. Damn them to hell.

    (But also death to ticket pockets. I have some suits with them, but definitely not my preference)

    It's a nice low contrast shirt tie fit which is nice and well executed, pimp suit and all. A blue tie will just give it a different look, not necessary better.

    Thanks, @Pliny - the suit is mid-grey IRL and the tie is a wool charcoal herringbone. The blueish tinge comes from the afternoon light - by the time I get home, it's already getting dark. I tried to reduce it as much as I could without the photo looking like it was in black and white,

    Love the suit! I think a darker color tie would have been better though
