    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.

    Nice, that is what I like myself, a slight bump but not exaggerated. I guess that's what it looks like after it has settled a bit?

    Maybe he thought you were talking about wadding for a true roped shoulder?

    It's not a transliteration, it was the name given to it by Portuguese sailors (without reference to what the locals called it).

    Is there an overcheck in the suit pattern? Doesn't look like it from the pic, but I can't be sure.

    shoes are lovely. as is to be expected

    very nice, a.

    manton, assuming this is the same suit as had posted a bit ago, yes, there is a light blue overcheck. you can see it faintly in the second pic.

    Mr. Portnoy's return is one of the best things to happen to the forum in a while. Thanks for sharing so much recently. The full length shot is really nice too. Those pants look like they fit perfectly. Another Despos?

    Just trade in a pair of shoes or two for a phone with a better camera, and I'll be fully content.

    Thanks Z, much appreciated! Will try to take better pictures, they are pretty dismal!

    The suit is a Despos and part of a 4 piece to boot. There is a waistcoat as well as a second pair of trousers with flat fronts.

    Lovely suit and combination, aportnoy. Is the cloth by any chance one of those London Lounge by Fox flannels?

    That is what is referred to as "the full Despos."

    P has an even nicer one in the works, Harrison's 39253. May be the best looking glen plaid of all time.

    I reclaim this thread as "aportnoy's good taste thread"

    Nah, that one was Harrison's flannel #39232 and is brown/camel with blue overcheck . This one is Minnis flannel bunch #0323 and is cream/black/grey based with blue overcheck.

    Suit looks very good.

    That tie would be bad if it were either shatung or polka dot. Since its both I don't know what to make of it. Too bad it isn't yellow.


    Really like the cut of the trousers. Who made that suit?
