    Yeah great pic Timo. I was ready to pull the trigger on that same suit a couple of months ago and it suddenly vanished from all SS media as they made room for the new AW stuff. I'm sure there's a warehouse full of them somewhere but it remains a mystery to me.

    Holy crap the cut on the jacket made you look 20 lbs slimmer, the strong shoulder and peaks really suit you!

    I think we are fair game for satire.

    I'll say my accusation may have been a bit premature to state, but I was going off my first impression. I truly have no idea what the core values are of that other forum, and after poking around for 5-10 minutes, I'm still not understanding why it was created. To each his own, and that forum seems to be operating with enough active members, that I suppose it does serve a purpose for some. I just did not understand. Maybe shed some light on the history, as I seem to not be the only one curious about its existence.

    +1, there did seem to be some hate directed towards some here. And who knows, maybe it was valid, as I am not an extreme activist across the board on SF to understand all talking points directed towards some.

    On a personal level, I like a lot of the posters there. And I greatly enjoyed their snark when directed at professional iGents and the like. But their occasional collective action against folks whose crimes amounted to nothing more than being dislikable (to some) or awkward (to some) was something I eventually felt shitty about condoning (and despite my attempts to inject nuanced positivity, along with folks like EFV, HC, and journeyman, I did eventually feel like my participation there condoned, in a way, some of their less reasonable endeavors).

    It would be great if that forum grows out of its need to be defined by its fondness for ridicule (which is not to say become a rainbow infused lovefest) because it has the potential to provide a nice counter note to SF, something which AAAC and FNB aren't really capable of.

    I had thought at first that the forum being referred to was one of the forums here. Glad at least that it wasnt the members here saying such rotten things about DC (and others). I did take a look, and some of the snark can be very entertaining when directed at the pros, as you point out, but it can also be hideously cruel and just plain rude.

    Would be interested to know its history as well. Rambo seems to be active over there, he vanished from my sight at SF after he began his world tour a few years ago. What happened?

    Thanks. I am actually a good deal slimmer than I used to be or than some of my jackets and pics might suggest. This one fits particularly well and I finally got a good angle.

    I was sitting in a local pub-restaurant last night after work (still wearing the homespun tweed suit from post #9173 above) waiting for my wife and son to join me, when a guy who was leaving came up to me and said, 'I just wanted to tell you that your suit is absolutely wonderful'. I've had quite a few women I didn't know comment positively on what I was wearing but this is the first time a guy has done so.

    When a stranger compliments me on my dress I usually suspect it's not a good sign.

    Perhaps I'm just a pessimist, but then again ...

    Cheers,

    It's not so bad. And starting Monday, I'm on vacation until the 4th.
