    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 height is your collar band? Looks extremely high. Don't get me wrong, I like it. Currently, I'm wearing 5cm high collar bands, but my swan neck could probably use more...


    Maybe not enough contrast between suit/shirt/tie? Hard to tell from this photo though...

    Fair enough. First outing for the suit. The jacket needs to be let out a bit, and the seat as well to accommodate my non-flat ass. I'll have the man take a look at the length while I'm there.

    :thumbs-up: :fistbump: You may want to wear the jacket and tie with a lighter colored shirt sometime.

    The captain of my flag yacht is asking tough questions about disappearing posts. He's damn near inconsolable.

    He'll get over it. Fill him with rum and put him in bed with the captain's daughter; oh wait!

    Not sure how I feel about the tie. Any thoughts on this?

    From an historical perspective flannel is not an inherently fragile cloth. It was used extensively for sporting attire until at least the 1970s.

    ms - I'm still not really sold on this square either. And the jacket seems very dark. Is that just the picture? I almost never like multi-stripe shirts like that. It works fine with the tie and jacket though.

    stitches - hard to argue with that, very nice. Just don't show me your red socks!
