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,

    Fok on behalf of the entire Styleforum team

    Thanks. Those are nice looking jackets/shoulders on Booth. Do not care for the lumpy ones in this thread.

    For those that go on about intrinsic aesthetics: A shoulder-line that follows a wide-radius convexity, then a tighter radius convexity (at the shoulder bump), and then reverts to a wider radius convexity at the extension, before dropping off... is unaesthetic.

    I assume mariano has a f*cked up acromion. I sympathize.

    Was your level of hostility not disproportionately high and rude?

    No, you should shut up after making your point the first time. Not repeat it over and over again and piss all over what was one of the better threads on this forum.

    Nope. Too many pests crawling out of the woodwork to carefully pare down each one.


    It's not a good thread if 80% of the jackets have fucked up shoulders and nobody knows it.

    Styleforum is its best as an advocacy network for people who use bespoke services. Not a cheerleading service for tailors. I wish tailors could be trusted 100% to handle all issues without client feedback. However, the business model of running a bespoke shop creates natural incentives against this ideal. No matter what any tailor says. That includes my own.

    So, the real problem is actually not the shoulders on these jackets. Or even NSM. To be brutally honest: the problem is their clients not knowing how to be clients.

    What a nonsense justification.


    Says who? That may be what you want it to be, but it is clearly much broader in scope than that. This is plainly obvious.


    The problem in this case is your incessant drive to demonstrate your superiority, time and time again.

    Anyone with a grain of sense will know that this thread will be replete with users of this clothier. Anyone with some humility will know that they may like their clothes, and prefer not to have their good shit on.

    You are a rare bully that can't contain himself but to shit on everything that is not what you like.

    What makes you think you are the authority on men's styling and have the right to critique other people's choices and tell tailors that have forgotten more about making garments then you will ever know that what they are doing is wrong?

    Shut up already. Everyone is tired of reading your tirades. If there was ever a perfect example of Napoleon complex, you are it.
