    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.

    Oh, I understand why you don't do it more often, but I do still wish that you did.

    That is a very nice tie. Almost might make me rethink my dislike of knits.

    Blazer, I assume?

    I really like your fits. They are very coherent, and the way you sit when the picture is taken makes the clothes look natural and comfortable compared to the normal self-shots of lapels, PS and tie. (This is not an encouragment to anyone to stop taking those kind of pictures. Please keep them coming.)

    Yup, it's a blazer (smoked MOP buttons not seen in the picture). The fabric ended up looking more "suity" than I thought it would, but IMO the buttons and the shade of blue kinda save it from looking like an orphaned suit coat. Pretty happy with it [​IMG]

    Yes, they are. It's the only thing I don't really like about the jacket, though I can live with it. All of the MTM lapel patterns my tailor offers are rounded like that, but I think it should be possible to get "normal" lapels as the tailor-workshop relationship is quite close. And if not, the lapels could probably be reshaped somewhat on the finished garment, I guess.

    Well done! The lapels on the jacket in the bottom photo are a little wide for my preference, but overall, excellent combinations.

    i think it has to do with RTW availability. when i think of what i see on the racks, there are far more loud suits than SCs. i think so anyways. and i think that that may have to do with the fact that many people dont wear SCs at all, and when they do, they are using them in a formal function, and would not be looking for a loud SC. just a thought.

    Guys, as spring approaches, what is considered good taste in neckwear? I am assuming wool is seasonally inappropriate for summer, that's a gimme. I would guess linen and silk are the preferred fabrics. What about cotton? What colors are more appropriate in summer?

    you're on the right track with those fabrics, then basically any color is OK, with a preference for ligher and/or pastels. Earth tones, avoid if possible.
