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.

    Gerry Nelson is a sartorial gansta and I am but a scared newb still trying to muster the courage to post an actual fit. I bow to you and the other beautifully dressed adepts in this thread. Still, this thing about not showing at least some cuff, especially on a suit, is kind of crazy to me.how can you leave the tailor without demanding the jacket sleeves be shortened. I suppose we all have certain sartorial quirks and this is mine. I can't even take a fit seriously, of a full suit, with no cuff showing. ( I know sometimes things look differently in real life but then why not take another picture?) Again, Gerry is a baller but I am just trying to figure this out. I have brought this up before and I know Clags and Helden have both eloquently stated that it isn't important to them so I promise I won't bring it up again but I just had to post about it one more time. Also, there was some Dewars involved so please forgive...

    I agree with what you're saying. This was an OTR suit (Boglioli) with working buttonholes so the only way to get the sleeves shortened would be to take them in at the shoulders which is not a small job. I will at some point though.

    Not right now, but yesterday. I like to rebel like that.

    Jacket looks a little boxy, especially if you're actually a 38r. Maybe try the 38l next time? Or have this tapered.

    Nice suit, is that a Susu havana? Buttoning point seems a little high.

    Today is the last day this week that I'll be suited up, as I travel tomorrow evening for parts northeasterly from New York, across "the pond" as they do say, and I'll be on vacation for two weeks. That being said, I'm having lunch today with a lawyer at the World Financial Center, so I've dressed to look as if I belong in that venue - at the very least, not too scruffy.

    Suit - JAB Signature Platinum
    Shirt - Tyrwhitt
    Tie - BB
    Braces - J Press
    Cufflinks - Tiffany
    Shoes - Harris, via Barney's NYC

    Baller, but speaking as a person who owns a stubbie of Sydney Paneristi beer and has met Hammer, I'm telling you now that that watch does not go with that fit.

    Have you ever been to a Sydney Tarts meat?

    DonC, not up to your usual standard these last couple of fits. I miss Autumn DonC!

    I haven't been around here as long as most of you, is this really a rule? I wear spreads/cutaways with sport coats all the time and think it looks fine.

    I see what you're saying. This was a very first wearing to get a feel for the fabric, straight off the rack with absolutely zero alterations. I may consider tapering, but I don't want too much action on the button. I think the look is quite acceptable, though, not flawless, as is. Would you agree?

    In general yes, spread/cutaways are thought to pair better with a full suit as opposed to an odd combo--it's a matter of matching the formality of the shirt to the rest of the outfit. I personally only wear OCBDs with sport coats, but some pull off a spread collar quite well.

    Really tough color to photograph. To me it's got a hint of a pale brown with a hint of pink. In the second picture it almost seems grey. I regret my tie choice and think a richer blue tie would have been better.
