    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.

    Helden, that's one of your better fitting jackets, I think. The angles on the sleeve cuffs, however, are a little aggressive, no? A lot of sleeve and then none at all in the back.

    Good eye, Tweedy--I might have to get my tailor to fiddle with it.

    In terms of fit, this is my preferred idiom for jackets--natural shoulders with a little bit of structure, moderate gorge, lapels that are wide but not too wide. I took a risk on the silhouette because this is a 40 that's been taken in significantly (rather than my usual 38), but I like the result.

    @New Shoes1 what cloth are your Trousers? I had to retire a pair of flannels this year, and that is the color I want to replace them with. Thanks, DL-

    My first red striped shirt. I don't know how I got along without one for such a long time!

    Thank you for the kind words.


    Spot on kulata, unaltered RTW Suitsupply. I had the trousers hemmed is all.
    Not a fan of the patch pockets myself on DB but the fit, fabric and price outweighed that con.
    Oh, I am changing the buttons to darker ones right now. 2 down 17 ( i think) to go.

    Looks like you've got something to hide.

    Thanks. It's one of my favorite jackets to wear with or without a tie. Speaking of ties, I may have to check out that discussion as I still have not found a combo where I like this tie. I have better choices for ties for today's jacket.

    Howard Yount lambswool flannel, made in the U.S. cut.

    How I don't miss that at all, plus 1000 on the traffic.

    Here it's sunny 95% of the time, even in winter. And I missed the seasons. :)

    Great 'Der Denker' impersonation, btw. Only better dressed.

    This deserves more thumbs. Virtuoso handling of colours, patterns and textures, cohering into your usual strong sense of style.

    Maybe just a little too dandy for the sober SF groupthink?

    Keep in mind that many an "average person on the street" would find all the plaids and checks that receive praise around here to be rather loud. By the by, I like AAS's fit.

    Thanks, guys. I wasn't sure about the bow tie here. I originally had a solid blue bow on with a different square, but I decided to take a risk and switch it up. I do wish I had left out the lapel flower to be honest.

    As I mentioned in the Italian CBD thread, a red bengal stripe shirt does look well when paired.

    Hahaha, I'm sure you don't miss that at all. Seoul now, isn't it? Will you make a pilgrimage to BnT too?
    The lack of seasonal variety here is indeed boring...
    Thanks btw, it's likely I'm a better dresser than a thinker [​IMG]

    Seoul it is. Wife and I have a standing "joke" we share on occasion, which translates into "like being on vacation". Basically means it's pretty good over here. :)

    I will visit Bnt for sure. Passed by a couple of times already on our way somewhere, and they are only a 10 minutes walk from home.
