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,

    Haha glad to see we have the same exact thought process about this. It's a shame that happened to you. Hope that everything came out correctly after dying/replacement.

    Also, per your comment about Mariano not being bothered by the canvas/lining showing through, I sincerely hope it's an innocent oversight (however hard that would be to believe) on his part. There will be a tremendous loss of respect if I find out it's some sort of tongue-in-cheek affectation/sprezz.

    You don't really notice it that much, but probably a camera flash made it look worse. I don't understand his persistent collar gap.

    Definitely noticeable in any light (except dark / evening)

    It could be the kind of thing that is very rarely visible and was exacerbated by a flash photo.

    edit: whoops, late to the game.

    I'd say that might be case, were it not for the fact that his resting arm is just as see-through as his bent arm. If it were about tension and lighting you'd think the naturally draping areas wouldn't show through nearly as much. I also agree on the collar gap.

    I could see some designer making jackets with slightly sheer fabrics and contrasting canvas as a way to let others know the jacket is canvassed. Like cuffing selvedge jeans.

    Well that answers the unlined vs lined question : these are definitely unlined. It looks so moronic, sorry to be so blunt.

    Yes. It's a flannelly, woolen fabric, three patch pockets, no vents. Thrifted, so it doesn't fit perfectly, but well enough for my tastes and budget. I live in Atlanta, and haven't gotten any Masters comments yet about it. It's definitely a fall weather jacket, and works well with just about anything in the browns and khakis range.

    I hear that unlined sleeves wear cooler. I'm planning to try it for a linen suit next year.

    I knew most of it, but it was still interesting to watch. The best line out of that was at the end when he said something about the price should be whatever the consumer is willing to pay.

    The cloth is only see-through if you pick the wrong kind of weave.

    Yep, the same kind of weave that makes it wear cooler.

    Yeah, I guess. All I know is that one of my coats has unlined sleeves, and it's neither see-through nor very hot.
