    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.

    i agree with you here, even though i really see this jacket (its a jacket imo, quilted on the inside) as an MC item, not SWD. the flat pants and shirt do not seem to go well, it really works better with other thicker more textured pants and shirt. i should have worn the merino wool navy v-neck jumper i had planned to with these pants and shirt, but i love this jacket so much i often just grab it.

    i think it would be cool to try moleskin, cords would be good to have as well. i am lacking in both those departments. i think i will try this jacket with chinos next time and see how i like it with a less dressy get up. i might surprise myself and like it a lot.

    and yes, i feel congruency/coherency is very important.


    this may or may not be true. every. single. morning.

    TTO is the only one I could ever imagine pulling off something like that. No one else could do it.

    Checking in, cool looks lately. TTO, only you could attempt that look, I wish there was more contrast between the shirt and pants, but I do like it. It is still freezing here in Michigan and this flannel wasn't good enough today..dunno how we feel about orange but I love it.

    ^Jcrew 484 selvedge in raw indigo. I like the fit (I am somewhat hard to fit in jeans) but I wish they were a bit lighter. Can anyone recommend a brighter blue indigo jean in a similar fit?

    Those look nice. Its funny I was looking at those exact jeans. I am looking at Naked and Famous indigo selvedge jeans. According to measurements they would fit like my jbrand jeans do and they look nice.


    I change my mind, it would have probably looked better in red (go niners!)

    Thanks both for the fine-tuning. fwiw, had a jacket earlier in the day and ditched it. Too hot outside.
