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.

    All the praise is much appreciated you guys. Chrono, we took tons of photos during the trip, but only a handful of shots with me in it head-to-toe. JO3B, the loose pants works for me since I've got a wide body and thick thighs, so it all balances out. Oxnard, I'm wearing the 19th BD shirt with the sleeves rolled up. Bobo, if you look closely I've got a blue vest on and blue socks, so not a 100% copy [​IMG].

    I'm sorry dude, but those pants fit bad. Look at all the extra fabric hanging off the thigh and the crotch.

    Is this a backhanded attempt at getting a better shot of my junk? I don't do super-tight pants, bud. These are quite tight and any "extra" fabric is an illusion.

    I'm inclined to agree with you on all counts. Besides, after seeing the difference in Holdfast's trousers created by two different camera angles, I'd rather judge a different shot than assume it's a bad fit. They look fine to me regardless, probably moreso after their future alteration Robbie - double or triple jointed?

    Taking into account the brands involved here I would expect everything to fit better than it does. There are some crotch issues, but minor. The jacket length compared to the sleeve appears disproportionate, I'm nowhere near an expert on tailoring but I feel like the jacket needs to lose an inch in length. Finally a taller shirt collar would balance again the length of the jacket.

    Guess I gotta put this here [​IMG] All random Boutique brands from around Tokyo. Note on colors: Jacket is navy with a very faint pin stripe, glasses are dark Tortoise. Jacket is also a cropped fit, hence the kinda long arms and short body. I really like the material of the jacket as its really thin and light, cotton/linen blend. The shirt is also a cotton linen blend and thin with a herring bone ish texture. Also I would like to mention I need a new pocket square, anyone wanna suggest a color.

    Yeesh, go back to square one on this one. Size down or have everything properly tailored. Or just say fuck it all and actually get something that fits.

    This is likely a matter of more classic styling vs. the new moderm "cut" you are thinking of. If the jacket were shorter by an inch, it would be praised here (maybe) and disliked in MC. As it is, MC likes the jacket but you find it too short.

    Ah, I had wondered that at one point due to the high split side seams that comes standard on those, either way though I am still very jealous,as that was hands down my favorite pattern from s/s 09.

    I'm not really sure why you post a fit, receive a suggestion and then proceed to argue with said suggestion. Why not just post in MC if you are seeking only positive feedback?

    As for the fit itself, I don't have a problem with length of jacket, but I do think the shirt collar should be taller. Also, the pants fit very average imo. Not great, but not awful. I'm not sure if you are planning on hemming them and just cuffing in the mean time or if that is your intended look.
