    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.

    Golden bale feels softer against my skin IMO compared to one of my Harrison Oyster suits in 13 oz which feels dry and scratchy. Do you buy SC as well, it seems like you only buy suits?

    I have never worn a sport coat. I don't really intend to. If I am not in a suit, I am more or less dressed like a slob in jeans and a t shirt.

    Though a charcoal barleycorn sport coat over a black turtleneck and black jeans does sound kind of awesome.

    Hmm do you wear casual suits on Fridays? I've been focusing on getting the basics down for suits, but I usually wear a SC on Fridays.

    Black turtleneck and black jeans is a good look, but blue barleycorn...? I picture you with a steel grey barleycorn sportcoat - or topcoat.

    Charcoal 21oz barleycorn over black. Yeah, sounds really preppy.

    What's that face? I at least wear respectable suits, unlike the causal RTW crap that you blog about.

    Sportcoats are our friends.

    I honestly don't get the sport coat. I know I am well in the minority here, but it is kind of like how I feel about loafers. There is just always a better option. To me, suits look better than sport coats and trousers, so why wear the later? I like a simplified wardrobe, and a simplified wardrobe includes looking the way you think looks best for as much time as possible. A white shirt always looks better than any other shirt, so why would I wear anything else? Again, this is purely my opinion, I am not trying to argue that I am correct. Same goes with shoes though, oh shit, grey suit, white shirt looks awesome with black oxfords! Why change that? If there is a situation that I am in that doesn't call for a suit (or sport coat for that matter) I just do the barebones American slob of jeans and a tee.

    because there are times when a sport coat is much more appropriate than a suit...

    you are def the guy that is always overdressed to everything.

    Loafers are our friends too.

    I think "best" in this case depends on context. Sometime suit, sometimes sport coat, sometimes jeans. Why wear jeans an t on weekends if you really want simplicity and to look your best at al times?

    I wear suits to summer BBQ's. I just ignore social expectations. I'm an oddball like that.
