Maybe time for a poll?
Too many sub-forums can spread a site thin and make the forum difficult to approach -- people stick to one area and don't venture out as much so there isn't as good of an information transfer -- however, two more forums I feel we are in desperate need of are 'Formalwear/Morningwear', and 'Footwear'... It would clear out the G.A.&A. and allow for more open discussion in the formalwear department.

Maybe time for a poll?

Agreed. This thread contains a wealth of information, but it's difficult to search/sort through. A new Formalwear Forum would make all of that information much more accessible.
In total agreement. To find anything now one feels much as Stanley must have felt when searching for Livingston (or was he searching for Ollie?).
I had posted a poll but it was removed same-day. I have a feeling we're not going to see a new forum.

Well done, they fall very nicely and have a nice line down the front.
"His modest resources meant that he could dress no more than reasonably well, but he did so with a kind of faded elegance that ignored the dictates of fashion... the overall effect was of someone frozen in time, indifferent to the new fashions of the agitated age he was living through. The truth is that he took pleasure in this, for obscure reasons that perhaps even he could not have explained."
Those trousers are hanging quite nicely, Nick. Well done!
Stripped of the cunning artifices of the tailor, and standing forth in the garb of Eden - what a sorry set of round-shouldered, spindle-shanked, crane-necked varlets would civilized men appear. ~ Herman Melville
