1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    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.

    Guys, we're way off track here. The thread is what it is, and people are going to post the pics they're gonna post. Let's bring the conversation back to clothes or I'm going to start doing cleanup duty.

    From Kamakura:
    "We line our collars, because it can maintain the beautiful roll of the collar as much as possible, especially when you tie your tie. Our interlining is actually non- fused, so it is still softer than fused interlining."

    Keeping this thread on track is a full time job. Since I already have one of those, that's why I don't bother.

    The amount of willfull obtuseness is like a tide. It just keeps coming, day after day, no matter how many times you explain yourself.

    I think it's highly debatable that this is even a good outfit in the first place. There is a drastic clash between the top and bottom halves. The color palette of the jacket, shirt, and tie doesn't compliment or coordinate whatsoever with the deep mustard color of the pants. Now, if he had been wearing a navy sportcoat, maybe it would work. Maybe. But that's still a big if. The tie feels similarly out of place vis-a-vis the grey jacket and blue shirt, albeit not as out of place as the trousers.

    At best, one could say that the outfit is trying way too hard. A less charitable view is that the outfit fails on a fundamental level.

    I have a couple. They aren't bad, but I find the points are still too short for what I like. As an aside, Gitman also makes all of Burberry's Made in USA button-down offerings, so if you don't have a Gitman retailer near by, you can certainly hunt down a Burberry dress shirt and have a look.

    It's GQ, I'd expect nothing less than them to recommend something godawful.

    "A bold take on the classic buttonwdown". Those words alone are a recipe for disaster. Their picture demonstrates this.

    Hahaha, wow. Not to sidetrack but there's so much failure in this one outfit that it must be shared:

    I like this thread better when it is a murder of crows dispensing critiques.

    Manton my post was not to derail the thread but rather to explain why the same issue comes up time and again. Like I said I don't post in here because the thread is not aimed for people like me. There was no intent on trolling.

    After the discussion about knit ties with odd jackets, I decided to give one a try. I admit I didn't go "all the way," as this knit tie has a pointy end. I tried 2 different pocket squares. It is an odd jacket with mid-gray flannel pants.
