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.

    I don't care for either the shirt or the tie in this fit (but so what?)...however the jacket and waistcoat are very nice. But do button that lower button on your waistcoat. Double-breasted waistcoats are exempt from the "don't button the lowest button" thing.

    How many of you guys have a repository of "inspiration" fits?

    I ask because I am thinking of starting a series of "exemplar" threads, as in "Exemplar: Double breasted odd jacket" and then post a maximum of five exemplars of this and asking others to do the same.

    I like the beard.

    @luv2breformed Great fit. Love the way you balance those stripes. Is that a Mercer oxford?

    Kamakura? I had thought their OCBD collar was smaller and more modern. Glad to be proven wrong. Is the collar unlined? If not, how stiff/flexible do you find the lining?

    Some of my Kamakura have slightly better roll than others, but I find them all to be good. All of my Kamakura have taller collars as is my preference, they definitely don't feel 'modern' to me. Collar is lined, but is not very stiff. I would call it lightly lined.

    Yes, bespoke BnT. My one and only commission at this point, although I do have a length of the "Agnelli" tweed earmarked for a second project with them.

    Material is Fox flannel. The suit is actually a 3-piece but works equally well without the waistcoat, against which yesterday's weather militated somewhat.

    You can see that the jacket is just that bit roomier, to allow for a waistcoat underneath.

    BTW thanks for all the thumbs, gents.
