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.

    A shot from the Sartorialist some months ago. Not menswear, but I thought it might still be appreciated...

    Love that red one. Would never have thought of a reddish hue on a sportcoat.


    Agreed. I'd probably shit my pants if I saw this at a bus stop.

    ^^^^ I kind of like the headless mannequin. He looks so calm and collected. As for the red and white herringbone sportcoat, I saw a woman wearing a similar but more vibrantly red fabric as an overcoat. I really like it.

    Harris Tweed vomited on a bag (Tommy Ton for GQ)---I have a jacket in Harris Tweed almost identical to the lower right!

    Is this Wooster? I'm not intimately acquainted with his jaw line (Tommy Ton for GQ again)---my favorite thing about this is the orange knot in the lapel; I actually don't like the tweed on tweed on tweed (particularly the herringbone tie) here, since more varied textures would have been more appealing... not to mention the "sprezzy" unfastened collar tab:

    You could get similar fabric here, and get it made up for you?

    Interesting selection of ready made jackets for ~$300 USD.

    Like this one in particular:

    Harris Tweed and Knitwear

    Sent them an email about sizes and availability of jackets in other fabrics. Will post response here.

    Perhaps I'd look a little calmer without a head too, haha. I love this jacket and the vivid checks, but I've never been one for leather elbow patches.
