    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.

    Pics? Unless you were in creative black tie or something, I can't really see the combination working without while gloves and a cane [​IMG] , but surprise me. I like the pieces separately though.

    Same ol shit, with the lavender boo and vb cardigan. I tend to wear the same thing and slowly bring new stuff into rotation.

    I went to some posh lounge in bh where I found the majority of the constituents to be wearing square toe shoes and ultra distressed ill fitting jeans. I believe Baron and GS are the sole purveyors of style in LA.

    Put a wool/cashmere Jil Sander coat on pre-sale at BG. I got the 1st one with the single stripe as I feel outerwear should have slant pockets and I liked the cut and slight play on volume it had over the 2nd pic which I was debating between.

    I like the second one better. Probably the first one will not look good on someone with a smaller build like me. They have a similarly patterned wool jacket as in you second pic. And I was debating myself if I should get it.

    There is a blazer similar to the second one that I still might pick up.
    The 1st one sealed the deal by having slant pockets and I liked that it has a bit more volume than the 2nd.

    Brigade and Stels both had that, as did Blackbird. Not sure of current availability though.

    hmm, in the past their color choices have been rather sparse.

    Tyler from Blackbird sent me this: "The XL tall shirt measures 21" pit-to-pit with a 28" long sleeve and the L sweater is 20" pit-to-pit with a 24" sleeve. I actually just found an XL sweater, too, which measures 21" pit-to-pit with a 24.5" sleeve." [The shirt refers to the green overdye oxford shirt--insanely undersized in the chest, as you can tell] I ended up with the sweater in an XL. I haven't tried in on yet, because I successfully floated it as a prospective Christmas present instead of buying it myself. I got the NDG sweater at Blackbird, too, with the 20% sufu discount. Fit is great after sizing up (maybe a 41" or 42" chest in an XL). I finally had to pull the trigger on both of these because the only sweaters I own are old Banana Republic leftovers from half a decade ago.
