    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.

    Colour seems to be off. Stripes in the tie are orange, not red. Shoes are dark brown with a reddish tint.

    The jacket is blue-green-grey. Shirt is off-white ("vanilla").

    Considered plain brown knit tie (that is thinner), or cream silk pocketsquare, but worried that would be too much creme/brown and too monochromatic.

    Black grenadine tie, white shirt, blue Donegal tweed jacket. Minnis light grey flannels not pictured. Thought it could make for an interesting variation on the blazer and greys look.

    It looks good, but I wouldn't have done a white shirt with a tweed sport coat.

    Do we really have to have the white-shirt-with-tweed debate again?

    Agree that an oxford cloth white shirt would have been better than the one I wore, but I don't own any. I'm generally not a fan of pairing tweed jackets with white shirts (or any smooth broadcloth shirt for that matter), but thought it would make for an interesting experiment. In this case I was also using the Donegal as a sort of substitute for a navy blazer. Blazer and greys would definitely take a white shirt, but I can see how the texture of the tweed has some people questioning it.

    The colors of the photos may be off, but is that a brown suit with black shoes?

    yeah what's up with that ^^^ Cox? You're not supposed to do that.
    I do like the suit. Brown suits'r tricky with shoes, but a cognac/tan oxford or tobacco suede might work well.

    There is absolutely no rule against black shoes with brown suits.

    I'm pretty sure there is a rule against black anything with brown. A rule that is oft broken to great affect I might add.

    Affect or effect? At least there is no good taste rule against it.
