    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.

    Ok. One more post of me begging for help. Illpost again in this thread when I've made some improvements. Thanks for your patience and help in advance.
    I used a real camera this time. I don't know how many of you take such excellent photos. You must have awesome equipment.
    It's hot here again. This sport coat is cotton and very light weight. I like the color but again my slacks are darker than the coat. So perhaps I should wear this with tan pants ? Doesn't matter the button is too high. By a lot. I did some reading and from what j can tell the top button is over two inches too high. What's the consensus on bdc shirts and a sport coat? I'm in the US, and I've read that bcd and suits don't mix well over seas. My pants legs are cut too full but the length is better than my last attempt. My shoes need some attention. The flash from the camera makes it look a lot worse. These are Florsheim. I thrifted them but they had some sort of shellac on them? I realize this isn't a great shoe any more but for $9 us I'll get some mileage from them.

    I realized after taking the pics I have all blue on. :/ I'm not sure the check shirt works here either. I don't have a great eye for colors and patterns.

    Lighter pants are a great idea!

    You and those ties! Anyway, I'd have led with the second two pics. They seem to show the colors and textures much better.

    The shoes do look like they need a polish (but worth the effort for $9!) but it could just be the flash - they are too light for the trousers though, in my opinion, I'd be going for a darker shade with that outfit.

    I personally don't have an issue with the jacket being lighter than the trousers, nor do I mind a BCD with a sports coat. You are right about the buttoning point though, it is very high, strange as the jacket is not short on you.

    Make sure your shoes are darker than your trousers.

    A reader asked me about my process of finding jackets that fit on eBay, so I decided to highlight the jacket from my 1960's ivy suit.

    The article is on my blog, but I'm sure you gentlemen don't need to read it. I basically talk about how I look at shoulders and jacket length, since these are least "tailorable" measurements. I usually end up buying ivy clothing, so I advised that your chest doesn't need to fill out the measurements, since you can take in a jacket.

    I know my shirt collar is small, but it's from Uniqlo! I'm always looking out for vintage OCBDs though ;)

    @upr_crust I think I find the black of the spectators a bit too severe, given the lightness of the ensemble overall. A cognac/mid brown would have been the bee's knees for me!

    I can well understand your point of view, but I like the black & white spectators with this ensemble (which is a three-piece suit, and, perhaps worn with a tie and the waistcoat, would better balance the black of the spectators). Ah, well, my next indulgence in footwear may satisfy your tastes :).

    @Andy57 , weird setup, but it works for me. Perhaps a blue shirt would have made the tie appear less jarring, but overall I'm liking it.
