Anybody have experience with the newer brands? I'm in the market for a 40R black cutaway and striped trousers, but the vintage ones are hard to find. Just got outbid on British eBay... Recommedations welcome.

Send me a message if you are interested in purchasing as I bought out of state for a decent discount.
Nice looking stuff here, but I've got to have adjustable arms. Afraid that I'm doomed to a modern task...

I'm not the best at this. Wild Turkey 101 was the first bourbon I tasted. So for me, it's "The Bourbon Taste." The 101 is hot (alcoholic burn shouldn't be a surprise at 50% +) and I suspect that it was developed to drink over rocks, maybe with a shot of branch water added in for good measure. If I had to describe...
I have been drinking more Single Malt Scotch than Bourbon recently; but, as the weather has finally turned here in Central Virginia, it behooves me to bend an elbow and indulge in the official drink of the South. I've been through a lot of the choices out there but always come back to the Trinity: Wild Turkey, Maker's Mark and, surprisingly, the "new" 90 proof Virginia Gentleman (from right up the road a bit.) The Gentleman isn't as hot as the Wild Turkey 101 or as...
Checking Craig's list is a good idea, thanks. The Life Chair looks good as does Steeplechase's Think Chair. However, my realtor now has me staging the house since we're trying to sell. The upshot is furniture is going into storage -- nothing new until we move
Thanks for the help. Checking out the other chair selections now... yikes, a bit out of my price range. I'm trying not to go over $1,000. And I've got to have the adjustable height arms. The Meda chair looked to fit the bill, until I got to the $2K tag....
Off to look over the two websites mentioned.
bachbeet, I do have a Healthy Back Store just down the street. The CXO was a close runner up, but more expensive since I got the discounts on the Aeron. Will check again tomorrow.
designprofessor, Eames... a sight for sore eyes. I'll look into the aluminium group asap. At the moment I'm using a mid-century modern aluminum chair whose seat and back rest I recovered in some leftover houndstooth flannel. It's quite comfortable except for the arm rests which are too high...

Getting a good deal on "last year's model" before the price increase. And an additional 10% off if I buy the one off the floor. All of which is still hard to swallow taking into account the design. Unfortunately I...

Thanks philosophe. Split back? First I've run into that term. The chairs I tried out all had single piece backs. Could you forward a link to an example or a brand name, please?
