1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    First of all, thanks for the detailed feedback, and for the kind words.

    -I agree, the trousers and tie are both dressier than the jacket. The trou are worsted flannel, but they're not flecked or mottled the way a lot of flannels are, so they do read more formally. I couldn't come up with a square that was perfect for this (I think a blue-y purple-y wool square could have been great, but I don't own one of those), so I just wore one I liked.

    - I don't like striped BD shirts in anything other than oxford cloth, so I hear you on that part. I typically wear this one more casually (no tie), but I gave it a shot here. Sort of a "rugged Ivy" thing, in my head.

    - The university stripe/corduroy issue is one I have decided doesn't bother me, but it took me a while to arrive at that conclusion. I think the effect is more pronounced in pictures than in real life, where corduroy reads as less of a stripe. But I do tend to tread fairly lightly on that front.

    - I've tried this coat with forest green and mid-blue moleskins, but olive flannels and some kind of mottled, tweedy mid blue would be awesome with it. Thanks for that suggestion.

    - I hear you on this. I picked the shoes because of the color moreso than the style -- my only pair of LWB are kinda close in color to the coat, and I wasn't feeling that. I want a pair of burg shell LWB, but that's probably gonna be a ways off.

    Thanks again!

    Very kind of you. I have a few horse blankets and just added this to the mix.

    Most excellent. The jacket does look particularly good. Nice that you have a local place to do that. :cheers:

    I think you nailed it, Anden. I think a dark blue, green, burgundy/wine and probably brown (maybe lightly flecked with some color?) would also work, but those are probably good answers for almost any kind of coat.

    Agree with @kulata on the preference for more robust footwear as well given the rustic nature of the jacket.

    Probably my camera lens. I always resize them when i am not cropping but it still comes out wide.
