    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.

    A bit of both maybe. The jacket is long enough, in that it covers the seat (lands ~ 1 cm below the seat).

    I have a slight case of monkey arms though, which can make jackets seem a bit on the short side when viewed from the front. Also, the angle of the phone exaggerates this. The optimal camera positioning would be maybe one more meter back, and slightly higher.

    Awesome look, but needs black shoes, or at least dark brown.

    No way, I like the suede there....especially given the tie.

    Can I get fourths on that suede shoe action? MF has the English sensibilities methinks.

    And yet even some of the English agree with the 5!

    I'm with MF on this one. I can't tie those shoes in with anything else in the fit. Maaaaaybe the olive stripes in the tie, but that's a stretch. It's a CBD fit and the shoes are too rural.

    What's not to love? MF said that too to be fair.

    I have lots of suede and like Euro's choice, could have gone darker on a different day too. Tally ho!

    I wasn't hating on the suede, I was hating on the colour. If he had shown a full pic your eyes would've gone straight to the shoes. The suit/shirt/tie are all relatively uniform and cool colours, and then you have these bright suede shoes in a wonderfully warm and saturated colour. They do not relate to the outfit in any way whatsoever, which makes it look like a separate element. Also, he's wearing a conservatively patterned tie, a dark navy suit and a white hanky, which is all very CBD. A different square would have been better with these shoes.

    My screen might be off, but they're bordering on orange/ginger suede, while I think that dark brown suede or black leather would've been much more tasteful, and congruent with the rest of the colours. Had he worn a brown tie, or one with warmer colours, the shoes would've worked, but right now they stand out too much. Looks very igent, and not in a good way.
