1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Top half looks fine. May want to consider deeper v on the shirt. With your hands in your pockets it looks like the sleeves might be a bit long.

    The jeans need some work. You should definitely get the pants hemmed and possibly tapered. Which model N&F are those?

    They're Weird Guys which are the only ones that fit me. I got them hemmed but I overestimated how much two folds would take up, I think I may just roll them up one more time. The sleeves on the jacket are a little long, down to just where my thumb starts but I think that's OK for a winter jacket. Looks fine with gloves on and hands out of pockets.

    Noted, for now I'm just going to give them another roll and I'll have the Mom hem them when I'm home for Turkey Day next week! I'm glad the coat works, I spent a fair chunk of change on it before I joined here [​IMG]

    I think the colour is fine, but they are a bit too dress shoe... Boots or a heavier shoe would be better.

    Yeah I think the problem lies more in the footwear than in the cuffs. Those sleek dress shoes dont work well under a chunky top and cuffed jeans.

    Exactly.

    Thatoneguy, Bows, Epoc—all look great. Lots of gray in the world today.

    I don't know why anyone would put miran on ignore. He consistently has some of the best comments on here. Terrible fit pics, but good comments. Miran, if I can ask, where are you located? Just curious.

    Trackin', thanks guys. I think the shoes work a lot better with tapered chinos, just got them and figured I'd throw them in this to see how it looks. If I get the jeans hemmed with no break, do you think that would work?

    the problem is that you bought too baggy awkward / too long raw denim.

    I'm 5'5, everything is too long and that's as tapered as I can go with my stumpy infantry legs. I guess I'm just not tall and/or skinny enough for this forum...

    i would suggest that you buy one-washed denim and get it tapered/hemmed at a tailor.
