    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.

    Stitch, I think I've figured it out.

    Stop posting extreme close-ups. They don't tell the whole story at all.

    I 100% agree. Those closeups make it much more difficult to appreciate the outfit. And we don't have to look at your neck hair.

    well, im glad to try. however, i dont always get a full pic i am happy with, they are much harder. and, i thought the idea of the thread was just chest shots.

    either way, if peeps are cool with it, im down with putting full shots when i post in here, provided i have one i am satisfied with.

    thanks for the suggestion, gents.

    Getting a gray suit in non-worsted wool made. Are patch pockets on a suit in good taste, or should they be reserved for odd jackets only?

    Also, Stitchy, that fit is very slimming. If I could thumb you I'd thumb you good for that picture (unfortunately, I've thumbed too many people today).

    Claghorn, patch pockets are OK on a non-city suit, I'd say go for it. Just keep in mind you shouldn't wear that suit with city accesories, unless you decide to ditch the patch pockets. Also, what's it gonna be? Tweed? Flannel? If tweed, city accesories would be a no-no even with flapped/besom pockets...

    Alright...about to really n00b up this thread....but...what exactly are city accessories? I know what sorts of ties/shirts are too formal for odd jackets now...but this city stuff is new to me.

    Probably flannel. I'm planning on going to a new tailor (Spolverino); he's the president of the ...I don't know how to translate it...but sort of like the tailor's guild of Korea, so I'm assuming he has a healthy selection of fabrics.

    Well, they're what you could call "formal". As per Vox's guide to coherent combinations: shirts are white, plain light blue or blue and white stripes; neckties are solid grenadines or other textured woven silks, wedding tie patterns in silk, silk prints with discreet non-repeating figurative patterns, or diagonally striped ties (unless you're British) without too much of a sheen; hanks are fine white linen. This doesn't mean you have to stick 100% to that stuff with a city suit, but it works best.

    It all would work with a flannel suit if you don't rusticate it too much (i.e. patch pockets). If you decide to get flap pockets instead, then the suit could maybe work with both city and country accesories. Don't take it as a hard set of rules, but rather as a fairly safe way of doing things right.

    I would disagree. For me pp on a suit do not necessarily take away its "professinalism"

    i think they can be fine. look around the forum for examples, mainly PG, so you have an idea of what looks good.


    and thanks!

    I see them a lot on SC's but rarely on suits. Victor has a ton (actually the reason I'm thinking about it).

    Looked up PG...found a few threads but no pictures...mostly very weird arguments about Foo or Vox or some such...which is confusing because I was trying to find out about PG. Also something about mystery tailors. I came to the conclusion that SF was a very strange place in 2008-2009.

    I'll look around for more examples.

    TT, while that jacket does look less formal because of the PP, it also looks awesome (and like it would work in most business contexts).
