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,

    I like it, just wish the shoulders were softer, like his DB for example.

    That was my first suit from him. It took a few orders to get him to come my way on certain things.

    Do you guys regularly save WAYW pics to your HDDs? [​IMG]

    And people wonder why I block out my face? [​IMG]


    I don't save pics, but I found a quick way to find pics I liked. It should work for most regular posters in there. If you search within the WAYWT for posts, by your own username, with a time limit of one year, you'll pull up about 20 pages of results. It's really easy to skim them for posts where you complimented someone's look, and then open those posts in a new tab in your browser and then copy/paste the image URL into this thread. Takes about 10-15 minutes to review the entire year, tops.

    However, some stylish posters delete their old photos from the web after a while (PG, I'm looking at you!), which is why I wasn't able to include them in my selection earlier in this thread.



    Finally, to Matt - GREAT idea for a thread. Thank you. Loving browsing through everyone's choices; very inspiring.

    Well posted. If you're going to talk about huskier posters, Edmorel, Marty and Ethandesu are all big wins too.

    There are a lot of "big" guys that dress well. AHarris, yatchie aren't exactly 32 inch waisters [​IMG] There are also a lot of guys (large and small) that don't post pics that I know dress well.

    Still, I'll point out that nobody has posted any yachtie photos in this best-of thread.

    I did!

    I'm surprised to see that fit show up. I still can't figure out how to wear that jacket well. Do you think white jeans would be good?

    Yeah, unless the whites clash in some way. I always wondered though, is it a slightly extended shoulder and how heavy is the (100% wool?) fabric?

    If that seersucker jacket is wool, it should be burned.

    That's you!!!? Great suit, I like the cotton fabric. Shouldn't this be your spezzatura special where you indulge in all the little quirks you're currently suppressing, say by no wearing a tie.

    It's 100% cotton, and pretty light, though I don't know the exact weight. The shoulders are extended as much as my other jackets, but they look a little straighter because the fabric is so light. At least that is what I imagine.

    Ok I'm an idiot it's cotton. Looks "heavier" for some reason. Nice shoulder line I think. When you wear something like this is has got to fit well otherwise you're the guy selling ice cream.

    Isn't seersucker defined by the weave that makes it look rumply? Is it even possible to have wool seersucker? Matt's jacket just looks striped to me, not seersucker.

    It is seersucker, just with wider seers or suckers or whatever.

    Yes, but it's possible to make a seersucker pattern in wool. It should never be done, but it is.

    Seersucker is a puckered cloth, no?

    Some designers did it, can't remember who, looked ok.

    So, are the rumples just so big that you can't see them?

    The rumples result from alternating tensions in parallel threads. There is no reason this cannot be done in wool, it just never or rarely is.

    I am too much of a purist to appreciate seersucker in anything but cotton.

    So it's the "exact" (as can be) same cut? Looks more padded, guess it's the fabric. Great fit anyway but no fucking beige trousers and tan shoes with it please.
