    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.

    @DonCologne , I like the trousers. Especially because the shoes are also fun weekend shoes. Rock on!
    @Pingson , this is a lovely ensemble. I am on the camp that is all for light jackets and dark trousers.

    Celebrating the start of the weekend with cigars, good friends, Mojitos and G&Ts...Sorry about the blanked face.

    @Pingson the flawless gorgeousness of that jacket goes a long way to selling the idea. But I'm also a wearer of light grey odd jackets, so you get my vote. Nice tie, by the way.

    Nice fit David, not sure about the versatility of that olive colour though.

    I think it's splendid. My only quibble is that I don't like my tie colour to be close to that of my shoes; looks a little contrived. But damn, what a suit: I love the way you cook up those shoulders, DR.

    Thank you. Colours will come in time, but they are muted because my style is virtually all blues and greys, although different hues. It's winter here so the lighter colours are not worn.

    Really nice suit @David Reeves , wish I could learn how to sew and construct one from the ground up, must be very rewarding!

    No ban for good hounds.

    So, why not mix it up occasionally and throw on some dark navy (midnight) flannels?

    It's just my preference. I always think woollen pants look like part of a suit. In summer though I often wear navy cotton pants with bone jackets, driving mocs...real Pitti (ful) style.

    Sorry, I don't follow this thread much anymore...I forget what the consensus was, but I can look back.

    There may have been a couple that were on the shorter end but I've purged those some time ago. All I have now are boc 32"+. I really like the shoulders on this. Hips fit a little tight but everything else fits perfect.

    I've forgotten...is a tie mandatory in this thread? Are polos etc with jackets unacceptable?

    There's a CM Casual thread where this fit would perhaps work better, but in reality anything goes in this thread. I've posted at least one pic in shorts and nobody has kicked me out yet... :D
