1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    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.

    Cheers,

    A cream silk works well in double-breasted, for semi-formal evenings.

    And I'll wear a black DB jacket with gray trousers.

    More casual jackets, such as tweeds, warrant the 3 button SB look in my opinion.

    If I can do so without inducing apoplexy, might I ask you to elaborate on your apparent aversion to ventless jackets? (This very morning, I collected two of my Oxxford SBs from Ernesto, having directed him to sew up the center vents.)

    Really casual tweeds definitely are for 3-button SB. I was thinking more of the hard-finish quasi-tweeds that suggest but do not imitate thornproof fabric for shooting wear.

    re: Single-breasted, peak lapel sport coat

    How about adding a vest in the same cloth? An antique-looking, non-suit cloth such as a pheasant eye or a small scale check might deflect the idea of a tuxedo coat torn out of context.

    For that matter, make a three piece tweedy suit with a single-breasted, peak label coat, and occasionally wear the pieces separated.
