    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.

    My two new Mercer and Sons shirts arrived today and one of them is a blue/white micro gingham check. It screams "city casual" to me. Not sure on green and black though.

    These are two shirts: green/white and black/white. I'm mostly non MC but I like to pick up some new MC clothes that I wouldn't normally wear just to see how it goes (I'm more of a white dress shirt guy for example). I also picked up two pairs of chinos (light grey and beige).

    Yeah I was thinking mid-blue (electric blue?) cotton blazer with patch pockets, white pants and some cognac zip boots. Or beige safari jacket, grey chinos and beige suede desert boots, some sort of casual belt.

    note: it's 30c/86f where I am right now.

    That sounds right for gingham, though I'd lean large rather than small in that case.

    If we define Tattersall as a multicoloured check in brushed cotton, perhaps with wool, I'd say only wear with tweeds or the rougher kinds of blazer. I wouldn't call Damien Woody's shirt a tattersall, but a block check. I wear all kinds of gingham with solid jackets/suits, but then again, I'm in the UK.

    Looking good, Shoe Fairy.

    Glad we finally have some photos that really show off the Despos fit / silhouette. Does he have his own appreciation thread yet?

    Don't love the shoulders but that's 100% personal preference.

    Continually impressed by the fit of the Despos trousers.
