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.

    A Jacket would not have to be that big to fit over a vest while unbuttoned.


    I am not a big fan of the matching hat and jacket but love the look from the head down.

    Pic of guy with bike is not recent (it's from AW 2010). But it's still impressive that they managed to find a wall to perfectly match both his coat and pants at the same time :D

    Lanvin had a few pieces in their show with similarly built up shoulders. Weird to say the least.

    It's an art form in and of itself. Matching the colors of your surroundings to your wardrobe. So difficult in fact, that when one finally acheives the perfect combination of all the required components one is best served by remaining stationary at all costs.

    This can be quite a difficult maneuver to acheive when one has had one's requisite $20 cappuccino experience on the way to one's posing location. As caffeine is a diuretic and we all know that that the needs of the body will cause one to be faced with unpleasant choices between privacy or interrupting one's sartorial/environmental success prematurely. Of course the truly advanced will have scouted their location carefully enough, and planned their attire with such dilgence, as to accomplish a satorial 'slight of hand' by carrying an extra pocket square which perfectly coordinates with the decor of the nearest 'necessary'.

    Wait until you see his slightly patinated, ca.15 year old Casentino overcoat :)

    that's exactly the point - it's a scarf - worn in a 'tongue in cheek' way that resembles an ascot but most clearly isn't. I'll admit that many people will object - but I see it as a little sartorial 'joke'.

    This is so good, so very good. I can't tell you how good this is — especially the back.

    Wish we could see more of it. I mean it's a beautiful fabric, the cut is very nice, the back clean, the shoulders totally unpadded and soft (so much so the waistcoat is showing a ripple along the shoulder), sleeve head perfect, all lovely etc. etc. but I'm finding it hard to see what separates it from a thousand other lovely bespoke suits that are done every year.

    What have I missed?
