    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.

    Think of how simple it must have been. Put on a white shirt and a dark tie and go do your business.

    1967 was the turning point, I tell you. It all went to hell when Pierre Cardin got hold of Steed's wardrobe.

    That would be putting it mildly

    He actually works from home 4 days a week and is only in the office once a week. When he is in the office he still looks like he does when he is at home.

    I worked in the Rochester, MN office once, and it was abysmal. I would imagine the consultants are an exception to the rule though.

    look, i have no argument, but its hard to say that it would necessarily be more optimal than a very light blue, or a very light blue/white stripe. i certainly have no issue with all white.


    like gregs that sold out in minutes? or would you call that yellow?


    this would make me sad. i need colors in my life.

    ---

    btw, can i get a quick definition on what "officially" makes for a blazer and what makes for a SC. every time i think i remember i second guess myself.

    That was a gorgeous tie IMO. Not surprised at how quickly it sold out.

    Sure it's a nice tie but we have a lot of nice ties. That's not why it sold out so fast. It sold out instantly because this post got 800 likes and reblogs (go figure why some posts get reblogged a lot more than others, I guess it is a nice pic...)

    We may get one or two more in restock - depending on how much cloth Calabrese has left over

    Have you considered a look book/shop the outfit feature on the site?

    I must commend you guys on showing the pocket squares in folded/puff states - which is probably why I ended up buying 2.

    Is that tie Cappelli? If so I have the same one. I would have thought it too rough for a worsted suit, but it's interesting to see.
