    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'll start with these basket weaves even if they were purchased a few months ago. Wear them mostly with no socks, a light weight suit (no tie), or coloured socks matching the shirt - I have since exchanged the original laces with dark brown ones.

    Hi Claudio . . .

    I broke down and bought a lovely, sweater that I don't need . . . in deep, mustard gold. Super fine wool, from Zegna. Great price, at Bluefly.

    Newest item is a pair of New Balance cross-trainers for the gym. The sole came unglued and fell off one of my old pair. Doesn't anyone make them with welted soles?[​IMG]

    Just bought, at a very reasonable price, a dark brown crepe wool Armani suit. Yes, I know the gripes about Armani, it's a nice suit though.
    I was a little uneasy about crepe wool, but it's actually great for Florida summers.

    I did indeed. Got a great price, too. Haven't worn them yet, because of the rainy weather.

    Most recent are two odd vests in grey and brown glen plaid and a camelhair sportcoat (very soft camel):

    [​IMG]

    All from the sale. I was pleasantly surprised at the quality and fit (for the price, that is). The 44L fit me almost perfectly except for being about 1/2" long in the sleeves.

    [​IMG] Student budget has cut my shopping to a pair of jeans, some cords, and $200+ worth of watch accoutrements.

    I'm jealous. Saving for another watch. I'm planning on having a firesale on shoes since I'm currently out of storage space and spend too much time moving stuff.

    2 silk pocket squares from Ede & Ravenscroft. One is burgundy with multi-coloured dots, the other a burnt orange paisley job. About £20 each.

    Sand coloured narrow wale flat front cotton cords from M&S. Bargain at just £15 (should have been £30 according to the tag. Not complaining. I assume they just went on sale and hadn't changed the sticker).

    Reddish-brown tartan chesterfield (with black velvet) quite heavyweight overcoat from Paul Smith. Probably overpriced at £345 but hey, I fell in love! [​IMG]
