    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.

What's the difference between a sport coat and a suit coat?

    If I'm at a brick & mortar, the "suit" coat comes with matching pants. In general, sportcoats seem to be woven from coarser material.

    However - on ebay, I see many "sport coats" that really look like orphaned suit coats.

    What technically makes a coat a "sport coat" and not the top half of a suit?

    Thanks for the find. Not being interested in blazers, I never read that thread.
