    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.

    FWIW SB I quite like the pairing of the sweater with the shorts. I agree with others that the shoe was the wrong choice here. Maybe not a chukka but instead a loafer? Just spit-ballin my rather inexperienced thoughts on the matter.

    Maybe some people feel long sleeves with shorts are an incongruous look, but I like it.

    Soccer man, SB? (Or just baseball - :)).

    I don't dislike this, but the pants are a little too long. Nice shoes, though.

    I normally hate both unbuttoned DBs and suits with t-shirts, yet somehow this works for me.

    Motorsports above all. Soccer above baseball. My boys love baseball, though, so I'm coaching the older one's team this spring. Otherwise, they play soccer year-round.

    Thanks. It could be that I was standing on a slight gradient. As in the pic below I am on a flat surface and they look fine to me.

    Black and white checkerboard being a difficult match aside, the whole monochromatic thing you've got going there gets completely blown up with the tan shoes. You've got to go with something that fits into the black/grey match spectrum - black. Or maybe even a #8 shell or really deep burgundy. But to veer that far off course to tan is a really weird look.
    well the clothes in and of themselves are fine (although I'm PRO jort-burning with fire). its the combination in the picture that's odd looking. I know they're linen and its a heavy t-shirt. It still looks like jorts and a sweater.

    I've been leaning more towards bow ties lately myself. Any brands you would recommend for a newby?

    I like the jacket and pants as separates, but the colors don't mix well. The shirt looks to go with both though, so taking off either the jacket or the pants would improve the look :D I'd prefer the jacket being removed though.

    Not at all how I would imagine you, compatriota. ¡¡¡¡Yankilandia te ha absorbido por completo!!!

    Elisix, this is how to properly execute what you´ve been trying to do all this time.

    I like it, navy and all. The problem is the shoes IMO. Perhaps some black shoes would be good, or brown suede chukkas. Just look at NOBD's fits, he is rocking MC casual with something like that.
