    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.

    Looked like broadcloth, or something, in the pic.

    Half a year to a year back I had this idea in my head that I want a black DB suit, to which everyone shouted NO! so I contented myself with a charcoal glen plaid one. Part of me still wish this were black, but I quite like it, feels sharp in a sufficiently subtle way.

    ISO, I really like that suit colour on you. If you like black, I think a black velvet jacket is a good option. Especially considering your line of work. I have one that gets a lot of wear when going out to clubs etc. I have no idea if that's SF approved though.

    Like @lordsuperb I was curious about this preference.

    Can you elaborate on why you prefer the rear suspender buttons on the outside?

    Happy weekend. Pants are olive, but they look kind of gray here.

    I believe you want @Andy57, however, my first custom suit was made with trousers that had rear tabs. I like the look and get them made with the majority of my trousers. They allow the braces to sit higher like they would on the old-fasioned fishtail braces.

    No, I actually mean sown on the outside of the waistband, although the arrangement in the picture would accomplish the same thing.

    I find that with the rear buttons sown on the inside of the waistband, the buttons wind up digging into my back in a way that becomes uncomfortable quite quickly. With them sown on the outside, that does not happen. It's especially noticeable while sitting in my office chair or in an airline seat.

    you get much more versatility out of the charcoal worsted.

    now...if it was a black corduroy double-breasted suit...that would be a different story...

    Us NE Asians can wear black and look good. All these white folks think what applies to them applies to everyone else.

    @Citan1145 or Csatan, did you do an hour of just chest workouts?! Looks damn good.

    Sheesh.. did u both get dressed in the dark? There's no coherence or harmony in either of these fits. Adiron, you're new, so keep trying, but AAS you should know better.

    @Citan1145 , I think you would really benefit from letting out the waist a tad in most of your jackets...today's included. That nitpick aside, it's a nice look.
