    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.

    Paul Smith shirt, silk braces (suspenders) by Hackett, bow tie by Countess Mara (Frank Sinatra's favoured label) and Acko (old Uk label). Jacket MTM (effectively bespoke) by three separate tailors Baker St, London (poor workmanship), Eugene's Philly (expensive half-baked job), Savas, London (did a good job). The pocket square is by YSL, jacquard silk weave. I stacked this on white/cream Chinos (RLBL) and black Oxfords. Photos in Annie's, St Anne's Square, Manchester (evening meal). Left arm (lower photo) holding camera, hence the creasing in the jacket,

    The first one ... maybe. If I'm being very generous and it's for a theme party. The second one doesn't work whatsoever.

    Interesting. A black shirt is recognised formal/informal evening wear: my shirtmaker has one celebrity who is a huge fan (will get the name).

    i rest my case.

    also, as a side note, this is a casual fit. Your argument wouldve been better with a pic of a formal fit.

    ... deeply divided opinions. PocketSquareGuy gives a good opinion IMO, otherwise best to leave the black shirt thing
