    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.

    It really depends on the shirt and the sweater. With mine untucked looks beter 9/10 imo, but it all depends.
    CP's fit would be a disaster with an untucked collar due to the sweater's narrow neck opening. My advice, when in doubt, is just to stand infront of the mirror, try both and choose whichever looks more natural to you.

    Very well played my friend. Loving the neutral colors all around.

    I'm digging those loafers. Care to share?

    You can try and critique it, but the double pleats, beard, and cap clearly tell you to fuck off because he know's he's the man.

    Depends. Would need context. I have many sportcoats I would wear and still call them a casual fit.

    Let me elaborate. A coat that looks more like an orphaned suit coat, worn with khakis or jeans, not casual.

    From the waist up, he's ready to throw down, but from the waist down, he just wants to enjoy his tea in peace. I can dig it.

    Thanks. I'm looking for some crew necks, something less dressy than Smedley, and these come in the exact two colours I'm interested in. And I like how they look shetland'y while actually being merino.

    You're welcome. If you don't mind the pilling, they're nice sweaters. My next sweaters will (again) be lambswool Lockies. Great colours (including melanges) and also not too smooth/dressy. I wish they had the same fit as the Airjumpers. : )

    Found and tried the Lockies but wasn't happy with the fit. And to my surprise I liked the coarser lambswool less than I'd expected :embar:

    : ) I don't think the fit is ideal either, but I wear them a lot. Did you get the smallest size?

    I don't recall the tagged size (there was something strange going on - the shop said they had tagged them differently than normal, as they were smaller than the size indicated. Or something). Anyway, I tried the smallest they had, and while it was too large I could tell a smaller size wouldn't work due to the cut...

    Yeah, shame about the lockie fit. A friend of mine has some oldies that still look very nice. He has a bit of a belly too, thehe.
