    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.

    Yup- he's addressed it before- but I'll still keep saying that he should trip the leg below the knee if he's gonna wear them that short.

    The trousers are ok, only the jacket could be a bit longer.

    Kinda bland, but not bad (would have worn a more colored shirt)

    The pockets (way too large flaps) and there's something not right with the fit as well. Baggy and the pulls to the buttons are problematic.

    Not the right hat for that suit but that's neither here nor there.

    I see that sort of thing at its best when part of a more casual tailored ensemble or with boots

    I couldn't disagree with you Yachtie. Yet there was something about the particular slant of the pockets - combined with their slightly high stance and overscaled flaps - that appealed to me. Perhaps it's the way the pulls from the buttons are forced to follow the lines of the pockets that somehow makes it work for me. Or the fact that the suit seemed ample and luxurious as opposed to today's trends of tightness.

    The hat, the glasses, the way the trouser length seems to be neither here nor there without cuffs, all these things are all not to my taste.

    Almost like there is so much wrong about it all that it's right?!?!?!?

    Or perhaps more that the confident louche affect is more to my liking than the details?

    Anyway - he's French - what can one say? :happy:

    You mean narrower with boots or how Wale is wearing them now?

    ^ I quite like the slim-but-straight shorter style that mods favoured, as worn with Chelsea boots and Cuban heels. I wrote an article about it for Men's Flair two years ago; about the only thing that still holds up for me is the photograph of Rod Stewart and Steampacket that I included:

    Are you serious or being sarcastic? If they were any tighter they'd be busting at the seams...

    Phew, glad I'm not the only one who thought so....

    The pulling at the button is very distracting.

    Other than that it's all good.

    Agreed...

    Could be also the pose on that particular picture.

    agreed - he has his arms pulled back slightly.

    personally i'm not so wild about the current trend of cutting suits so tight that a guy can't eat a pea or move a fraction of an inch without disrupting his fit. but i do acknowledge it is THE current look.

    in any case it's a fine look.

    Like one button suits and slant pockets, but not shirts with that wide a spread. I find them visually distracting.

    I don't know, this might be old as hell, it may even have been posted here before. I found it floating around at Tumblr and liked it though. It's not perfection, and I think that's what appealing with it.
