    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.

    Yeah I'd go with the blue mdr, when will you be able to get something in that color again except maybe a couple other brands and for a lot more...

    Dark brown goat any day of the week. I personally think the electric blue is a faddish colour. Get something that you'll be comfortable wearing when you're 40. Electric blue is an eyesore.

    Coming from someone with questionable taste in style - crocodile skin on a leather jacket?- I couldn't disagree with you more.

    My point is that it's a colour that is beyond flashy. If you plan on frequenting upper class nightclubs, you'll fit right in with all of the other dbags. Otherwise, get a leather in a more traditional colour. You won't regret it, and you'll turn heads for the right reasons.

    That being said, I actually like electric blue as a stand alone colour. I just think it isn't suitable for a leather jacket ad attracts a very limited market of buyers.

    So what's your argument? That means absolutely nothing.

    Hard to trust a guy who can't tell the difference between crocodile and anaconda.

    Your advice sucks because of the implication that a 40 year old couldn't be proud of owning an amazing, electric blue leather jacket. Why not? And do you really think that club bros are wearing bright blue leather jackets?

    I wouldn't buy a blue jacket for myself, ever, and I'm not convinced that it's the best choice for anyone. That said, if you're going to advise against it, bring something more interesting than just being reactionary.

    He is just saying to be more conservative because when you do get older you tend not to wear bright colors such as electric blue. Keep in mind not everyone on sf is in their 20s.

    Some of the "loudest" dressers on the forum are 30+.

    I see where you're coming from and I respect your point. As a law student, I should have chosen my words a little bit more carefully as the logic of that point is porous.

    Anyway, to clarify, I simply mean that there are some people on this forum who make decisions on impulse. Unless you're settled on that colour, take the time to think about it as it's a sizeable investment and one that a lot of people want to make sure is the right one for years to come. The benefits of owning a more traditional colour may outweigh those for the electric blue in certain respects, that's all I mean.

    Happy TOJ'ing to all and a happy thanksgiving to my fellow Canadians on the forum.

    ... How do you expect to accurately predict your tastes or appearance more than a decade into the future?

    Buy what you like now, &dress old when you feel old.
