    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.

    @pravda if it weren't for those shoes I would like your outfit. I am not sold on those shoes, honestly. I know you love them and if you do, keep on wearing them! The rest is fine :)

    Nice fit @Isolation I remember you bought that overshirt recently, right? I like the color a lot, for spring or summer has to look really nice, specially in along the Mediterrean coasts on vacation.



    Today finally we get a drop in temperatures (and for a moment there I thought it would rain but finally didn't). Unfortunately it won't last long :(

    @Chulillo thanks so much for the feedback. I must admit, others have commented a dislike of those shoes also so you're in good company. I'm a shoe fanatic so I'll switch it up next time.

    Yes, I've waxed it too, and like it that way. I've comissioned my next one which will be beige, but won't get to wear it for a while.

    I like the shirt and the pants together, but I dislike the length of the jacket given the length of the shirt. The shirt is way too long or the jacket is way too short. I'm not sure if tucking the shirt in would solve the problem given how loose the pant are. That is a beautiful shirt by the way. I'm assuming madras. Great colors.

    @Gerry Nelson

    Are these the same pants? If not, I like the second pair more. Much better shirt jacket length combo imo.

    I don't love the fit of those jeans @chocsosa, they make you look overly skinny. Maybe stack instead?
    Love the jacket @Gerry Nelson Lots of textured gray today. And double plaid, which may not work but the scarf was a Christmas gift from my wife. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    They are fine. They are actually slim not skinny jeans... I am a pretty slim guy considering (6"9 220lbs) so there is no hiding that..obviously we like the fit of our jeans very differently as observed from your look. I am a tall and lean.. there is no kind of clothing that will change that look..Thanks for the observation though..

    I actually think @chocsosa's jeans look great. That boot combo rocks it.

    Definitely just an observation and I get that jean fit is going to vary based on preference and body type (hell, I can't get any slimmer of a fit than currently, there's no extra room!). My comment is more that that your slimness seemed more called out in that fit than your past ones. But all your fits are great, dude, and it comes down to preference.

    To be honest, I kind of thought the jeans made you look overly slim as well. But only in the unspoilered pic above. It may just be the angle. I'd be curious as to the with of the leg opening on the jeans compared to your other pants. I have a 7.5 inch leg opening on most of my pants, but I fool with 8 inches sometimes. I find that 7 inches makes me look overly slim and above 8 makes me look silly. I think the cuff on your pants looks perfect.

    @fairlynerdy I think your cuffs are way too large. It's distracting for me at least. Great sweater and jacket. I would have gone with a different scarf. it doesn't really go well with shirt and its too warm in color compared to the rest of the outfit which is cool.

    Got a few things in the mail while I was on vacation.

    Uniqlo knit button down shirt. $30 each. I picked up four of these in different colors. I like the fit, but wish the collar was beefier.

    [​IMG]

    Banana Republic Suede Jacket. $70. So soft.

    [​IMG]

    Tartan sport coat. $40. Supposedly Brooks Brothers, but the tag may have been sewn in to help it sell.
