    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.

    It just seems like a designer "hanten" (with full length sleeves?), which is just a quilted Japanese bathrobe for the colder months. My fiance and I have them for lounging around in the fall and winter, so you might have some luck finding just an average (or ideally above average), hanten in your size. I think ours were the equivalent of about $100 each and are pretty nice, and I'm sure you could find one online with the right search. It's not something to wear outside though, unless you're really into that sort of look..

    Hi guys need your thoughts I just purchased two Chelsea boots one is from Aldo in cognac and the other is the Paul Smith Gerald Boot in dark brown suede. Not sure which one to keep. The Aldo boots with discount cost me £85 originally £100 and the PS boots where £200 down to £100.

    Cheers, now thinking of returning both and getting the Loake Mitchum, prefer the colour and silhouette on those.

    I can't tell, just want to see it worn with a (boring) neutral tee

    ^ is that Oliver Spencer? I like that jacket in tan suede. Patchwork, not so much.

    Never been much of a double-breasted jacket guy, but this looks like it could work for biz-caz days in the office (worn with RRL chinos, WvG button-down).

    Yep, that's the one. Must admit it was the opposite for me, the plain ones didn't look right where as this one is strangely appealing. Appreciate the input!

    This jacket has too much of a #menswear blog look to it to me. I have to say no.

    That is what simultaneously attracts and repulses me.

    You may well make it work. All the evidence I see says that you do know what you're doing.

    Description says cotton, although the jacket I have with a fabric that looks like this is a cotton / poly / elastane blend.
