1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    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.

    Cheers,

    The reason why I don't like a waterfall sleeve on a business suit is the same why I don't like a drape cut on it: It gives the appearance of (what's the term again, ah yes) "relaxed fit"!
    And that clearly belongs into the realms of leisure wear.
    :


    Soon people will be wearing lounge suits to work. Can you imagine?

    Lets be honest it's all the fault of those pigeon chested guys. Built like little girls.

    I feel we're getting off topic, but have no objections.

    So far neither do I.

    Pull, redux:

    I think this is what was referred-to earlier as "old man pull," which is supposed to be charming. I think I'm starting to agree.

    Oh noes! Another one lost, potentially! Quick man, quick! Go to Jeffery's blog before it's too late, for the forces of bad cut are nigh upon thee.

    It's probably too late for an earnest, non-SF inside joke or hot chick picture reply, but he's mine.


    Many of my jackets pull, nothing major, but I notice it.

    I think it's due equally to my big hips and thighs and my somewhat s-shaped posture.

    It drives me crazy, but I buy my jackets off the rack.
    So it's either slight pulling and a good fit everywhere else, or no pull but huge in the chest, shoulders and waist.

    Indeed. He's sporting double pull there.

    I'd say that it's the right way to go, if bespoke isn't available to you.

    Go for the slight pull in front and good fit elsewhere. Since I started lifting weights more, I noticed the same thing - my friends who lift weights and buy OTR suits are constantly going a full size up and then having a tailor hack the suit up beyond repair - looks awful. And note that the pants are a full size up (2 inches more), too, so you start getting MC Hammer pants effect. If you're going OTR, wear your size and live with the little bit of pull or have a tailor carefully let out the sides a bit - always a better bet.

    Sadly, with the latest "fashion" of cutting coats, men with a stronger chest (or waist or hips) don't have too many options left but leaving their coats unbuttoned.
    It seems that almost all RTW clothes nowadays are cut for stick-like guys.

    But, there is hope! Somewhere on the internet fashion fora is a man who knows all about tailoring or at least enough to instruct his alteration tailor how to let out the chest and length of a RTW coat. [​IMG]

    I just hope his tailor doesn't fire him [​IMG]
