    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.

    Jo, er hos Dagestad. Driver mest i butikken samt nett/fb/IG og kunde/leverandørkontakt. Carmina har mye fint, og de er definitivt sommerlige. Vi har nylig tatt inn noen modeller som fungerer godt. Fin balanse mellom pris/form/kvalitet. Liker spesielt godt derbiene dine!

    That might be the largest pocket square I've ever seen. Did he steal a dinner napkin from a Victorian-themed bed and breakfast and stuff it in his pocket?

    Does he have a whole tablecloth in his chest pocket?

    damn.. beaten to my joke.

    Also... that tie knot is enormous.

    Did anyone else read how noodles took off his pants in the mens room to try on his jacket and take pictures? Are you wearing pants in this picture?

    Actually the shirt was a pale pink Ascot Chang. Just got washed-out to white in the photos. I have a tattersall like the above, but I'd be worried about pattern clash. Nevertheless I'll give it a try one day.

    Funnily enough, I'm sure I would never have thought of buying the suit based on the website photos. I just happened to spot it in the rack at their Shanghai B&M store, tried it on for laughs, and loved it. It's a size 52 but some larrikin had swapped out the waistcoat for a 50, which was kind of tight on me. But I've lost 5kg since then and now the whole ensemble fits beautifully. So much win!

    (I do need to get the trousers taken in a bit though - a careful inspection of my fit photo will reveal some curtaining of the inner thigh area.)

    No, it's the wedding dress he stole off a Princess Di waxwork at Madame Tussaud's.

    Did you have a hole cut on the inside of you jacket so you could use your tie as a pocket square? Very cost effective! ;) Kidding, kidding, but you won't find a whole lot of love for that type of matching, here.

    Hard to tell much else from the small low-res photo, but the fabric looks nice and the cut flattering if not a bit tight maybe - and is there some dimpling at the shoulder?

    In any case, welcome to the forum, keep posting and let's see some better/full shots! :nodding:

    This is my first challenge and my first waywrn post. When I saw this challenge, I knew there was no better time than now. Kept it very casual with linen trousers, linen jacket, and an ocbd. Ditched the watch in favor of bracelets.

    That's like the mullet of menswear. In a good way.

    @Claghorn is it just the angle, or are the suit sleeves too long/shirt sleeves too short?

    Sleeves are probably too short; they are the identical length to the jacket sleeves (that particular shirt, other shirts probably differ). Most of my shirts shrank a bit when I moved back to the states and started doing my own laundry (as opposed to having it picked up/dropped off). Not something which concerns me much as the cuffs are generally visible as I move throughout the day.
