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.

    I keep seeing different lengths and am curious if someone can provide some specifics - single breasted jacket?

    Assuming it is a solid color 2-button center/no vent and your waist is around 33"-34", 2 1/8 to 2 1/4 yards should suffice. Add 1/4 yard for plaids/windowpanes and 1/8 yard for side vents.
