    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.

    ...actually, I do have a question for this official Good Taste Thread.

    Cloth-covered jacket buttons: caddish, effected, OK, swell?

    Then I don't like them either! Solidarity!

    The only time I have done this on a non tuxedo jacket was for someone in the entertainment industry and they wanted the caddish, effected look. Also did this on a ladies jacket to make the jacket less masculine. Horn buttons made the jacket look like it was from mens wear.

    Curious why you ask about this

    Despos, because I couldn't find an answer from my reference books or by searching online. One tailor didn't respond to my question by email, the other was OK with cloth buttons. If the truth(TM) cannot be found from this Whnay's Good Taste Thread(TM), then it does not exist. Each detail has semantics, and knowing them all is intriguing. This is why I've staid on SF.

    Why would you want cloth buttons on a non-tuxedo jacket?

    VRaivio, in the 70's there was a belt maker in NYC, Payson-Grisanti. They would make cloth belts from the suit fabric. You could have a cloth covered belt that matched your trouser or suit. Pretty advanced, next level stuff!

    I was at Leffot talking to one of the sales associates about bespoke suspenders. If it exists, which it should, I want some.

    I'm happy to see that we've moved from Apparel Arts cartoons to Batman the Animated Series

    I'm hip on where the trends are going. Pretty soon you'll see everyone wearing single breasted one button suits with no pockets.
