    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.

    There is something very creepy about this guy. He does look great though.

    The picture of Oliver Gerona on todays post is probably my favorite that you have done overall.

    I mostly like this outfit. Too bad he's not showing any cuff.

    I'd like to see a more contrasting tie, maybe a print or stripe -- even a burgundy or medium blue solid would lend the ensemble a bit more interest... But that's fairly minor -- he's very elegantly put together overall.

    He looks pretty good (aside from the sleeves which apparently no one gets right anymore). Any guesses on the label of that suit?

    A very well groomed and good looking (in a manly way) man with a jacket that is a little too short for my taste but well put together nonetheless.

    I don't like the check/gingham looking shirt with contrast collar, it just doesn't work. Apart from the sleeves, that outfit just NEEDS a pocket square.

    its nice, but its pulling strangely around the top button.

    he does kinda look like a toothpaste commercial guy, but i guess thats a compliment

    Probably his Motorolla Razr.

    MEOW...

    What is it with you guys?

    The cuffs...

    Could be the way he's standing...

    The tie- dull for my tastes but maybe not for his. Balances out the choice in shirt IMO.

    Suit looks awesome.

    It has one- look closer.

    vc- you or he want to buy a Forum???

    you want "meow"?

    YOU CAN'T HANDLE "MEOW"!


    Whoa, what happened to this dude's eyebrows? All he's got left are two little tabs like he's a* owl or something. I know you're supposed to cull the unibrow, but yo, leave it looking sorta realistic ... !

    My thoughts exactly. For some reason it doesn't bother me as much when the person is wearing barrel cuffs though.

    That is NOT a Thom Browne suit.

    And it does fit very well. Except that, as others have noted, a little shorter sleeve would be an improvement. Shoulders are great, everything is close, just not tight.

    Anyone else think the suit looks too casual for a contrasting collar shirt?

    I think that's because of the posture.

    If those are flap pockets, then the suit is too casual for the shirt.

    The tie ought to be bolder, the sleeves are a problem, and the fit at the chest is odd.

    The soap-opera hair and teeth that look unnaturally white for somebody with aged skin contribute to the "creepy" look.

    But he looks better than most.

    The short eyebrows are a combination of age and eyes that are widely spaced.
