    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.

    If it were any shorter, it would be a midriff.

    I feel you Michael.. Its always hard for me because its a multitude of problems.. Most L's fit me pretty well in terms of Jacket Length, but then sleeve lengths become an issue (I was measured at almost 39 inches for shirt sleeve length)..and then inseam becomes a problem as well (Measured at a 38 inch inseam which makes cuffs an adventure)..so buying on the net is almost next to impossible.. luckily I have been able to work with one or two tailors around here who have made garments where stuff has to be re- cut 60-70% of the time because I have to size up depending on the brand to get the sleeve length and inseam and then chop it too fit..most times it has worked.. other times after spending hundreds, I donate it too goodwill because it just does not work...thats why when I go to San Francisco I hate going into any of the department stores because nothing will fit and I am not really sold on doing bespoke because I know it will take a couple orders to dial it in and I just dont have that much money to waste..so I can totally relate..

    Thanks; I had this one made. It's a copy of my vintage M1943 in tweed, with a belt added.

    I had some professional differences with the maker and I can't really recommend them, though the coat turned out pretty well.

    *high-five* I was thinking about you as I wrote that post. My problems pale in comparison, of course. For me it's essentially just a question of slimming everything down a size (and then slimming the waist down some more). That's not nearly as complicated a proposition as what you describe. And yet, as someone has already rightfully noted, you come out guns blazing every time.

    I think both of us are fortunate to have a decent tailor in our respective areas who are actually capable of doing the work. I know that many here don't have that luxury. You should consider posting a before/after pic the next time you buy a suit.

    Wasting money on tailoring is another area I can relate. I spent a fair few thousand euros this year buying things that are too short or too slim. There have also been a number of occasions where tailoring has not been able to save the garment in question. As learning processes go, it has been a very expensive one.

    I was rummaging through some old stuff and came across these pictures of my dad in his prime. The pictures date back to the mid 70's in Paris and early 80's. He was killin' fashion his own way back then. Oh dear, how time flies. Please manage the mediocre picture quality (I guess the resolution back then was great for them especially with KODAK). I just wanted to share these beautiful pictures. Cheers ;)

    I feel you both. It's a sad reality that tailoring just becomes part of the clothing budget as I up the style game and hang out with you guys.

    My frustration is that I started lifting weights and my torso became bulkier, making my purchases from last year very snug. So now I am shredding with cardio and trying to achieve a healthy middle-ground. Thanks to you both for your insight.

    Thanks, Luger. I will assume that you are referring to my last pictorial post, the black-tie rig from this past weekend.
