    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.

    you should match socks to pants, not shoes.

    this is a safe rule, but damn boring. i think the problem with the combo is you have too many solids. combo would look great with say a blue/cream argyle or a blue/dark blue polka dot, etc

    mac, you know I love your loafers, but I cant wait for the fall to see the rest of the collection. i was looking through the alden thread from last fall and saw the beautiful cordo chukkas. i didnt happen to see any in black. do you own any all black cordo?

    true.

    Gray socks would be nice there too. Honestly i think when he's wearing blue suede shoes there's no need for argyle unless he can do it with humour.

    It is - the smooth leather looks a bit shell-ish, I think.

    I'm afraid your success is complete!

    Could someone please pass me some lighter fluid and a match? Quickly!

    Namor - while nice, this isn't, if you'll forgive me, quite up to your usual standard. The socks are a bit on the dull side, old boy.
