    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.

    yeah, this is a NYC/ Chicago suit, not an AZ suit. I have to admit, i normally only wear it when visiting a larger city.

    ok, here's the new suit-- sleeves still have to be adjusted, the NM in Scottsdale doesn't have the ability to do handstitched sleeve buttonholes, so I'll have them shortened and finished by my favorite tailor in Atlanta.

    photos aren't very good, will have to have the wife take a photo in the living room for better lighting.

    Wait, you smell that?
    damn you're lucky RTW fits you so well. So you don't have any problems with the drop in the trousers?

    [​IMG] given my tiny butt, I guess the trousers weren't a problem-- looked pretty good with the braces, although higher on the waist than they were intended for.

    thank you! the sleeves feel really long on the suit, really need them trimmed down-- they're really bunched up on me right now.

    I tried to photograph the unique stitching hidden by the lapels; don't think I have a suit with this type of stuff.

    Omar--

    Nope, Brioni. I think the model is NM Nomenta, or something like that.

    Unfortunately, the photos do not do justice to the unique hand of the suit, since it's a bit lighter blue. It looks like a dashing combo. Be mindful of the tie, as the light blue weave tends to snag.

    Ya know, I said F it when I visited Tucson on business and ordered up a couple of seer sucker MTM with a couple of mohair MTM and wore it all between late May through early August then had to step down a little; e.g. cotton suit, silk shirt, no tie, english benchmade slip ons, no socks, always a pocket square; to accompdate for the dry 114 degrees. Afterwards, ordered up an extra dry Belvidere Martini and jumped in the pool at the Hacienda del Sol.

    no sooner had i read your post, than we went deep into monsoon season! I think the high today was in the 70s, overcast and rainy!

    yep, assume i'll be wearing this and my other suits a lot more in 2009, when I hopefully move back east (likely the NE) for work.

    Wow - sounds like an impressive look, but you were clearly from out of town [​IMG] Tucson has always been pretty casual, in fact when I was a kid, long-time Mayor Lew Murphy (4 terms, 16 years) would always declare the guayabera as the official shirt of summer and that it was acceptable for all business wear. [​IMG] Once in a while you'll still see some of the older attorneys wearing guayaberas to court in the summer. P.S. I love that the monsoon is here! It's the best part of summer.
