    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.

    I'm sure that there have been similar threads before, but why not do another? And yes, "SF Approved" is a loaded term.

    I'll start:

    "Loud" suiting fabric (gun club check, prince of wales, tartan, etc.)
    Anything double breasted
    Paisley ties
    Mabitexes
    Chisel toe shoes
    Navy blue shoes

    Because it's lame and what's your point? Plus, you have to consider where in the hype circle we are.

    I was reading the non-Sartorialist thread and was just baffled.

    Someone is even promoting the triple monks now on SF...

    What's next?

    Spectators?

    Humongous cuffs on each and every pair of trousers.

    Triple monks are ridiculous, but not SF approved AFAIK.

    I'd argue that online MTM isn't really SF approved either... most posted look like shit

    Clothes.

    My wang was meant to dangle freely, a thick and beautiful flower in the crisp autumn breeze, unencumbered by the trappings of pants and false modesty.

    Online MTM suits are not SF approved if you ask me. Most people chose to ignore the abomination that is the Indochino thread. Thick as Thieves is SF approved, but that's for SW&D and mainly because of the construction imo. As far as MT goes, I don't care if it's SF approved or not, but I'd argue it is for smalltimers. All my shirts are MT and it's a great deal if you ask me.

    TaT is SF approved? News to me. I've seldom seen a fit pic from TaT that wasn't met with a chorus of disapproval and snark.

    Perhaps SW&D plays a different ballgame, but MC has roundly rejected TaT.
