    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 I will give it a go today. I wish I had a neat print tie in this maroon colour, but maybe this is still in good taste?

    Oh, and the suit is navy, and shirt is pale pink with a very fine stripe. The camera messed the suit color up really bad.

    black shoes would make it fine IMO. but probably not to Manton's taste.

    I like o/o's look. It's right in line with his go-to-hell, bigshot dandy style that he's seemingly cultivated over many years. I think it's a signature look, a bit eccentric but more interesting and well considered than most. Probably not right for this particular thread, though.

    I don't even think it's that eccentric if he switched out the shoes for black.

    That stripe is just very bold. I agree that black shoes would work better with these colors, but it would still be a bold, attention-seeking outfit, and whether that's in good taste is debatable.

    No. I'm a bigshot dandy, but probably not right for this thread.

    Hmmm, maybe it's a regional thing because where I live stripes like that are pretty common, especially if you're a finance/banker type.

    Something about the 3 roll 2 doesn't make sense to me with that fabric but it's minor.

    I think the tie looks good there which is a feat in itself.

    3/2 always makes sense.

    I can't even tell that it's a 3r2 and not a 2B from the pics.

    Mike, not really digging these. The first is great, except the pocket square appears totally random. The second is okay, but you know how I feel about triple solids--particularly solid squares paired with solid shirts.

    That dark green Drakes square is very hard to photograph - I know from experience... It really is not that strange birdpoo green you see here. Knowing what it really looks like, I think it would work well with the rest
