Wow... That's really sad that they are going out of business.

Definitely take it up with your credit card. Sorry to hear that.
post #1367 of 2072

how can a really successful busy business like that just fold? cashflow problems?

post #1368 of 2072
Clearly, they weren't really successful...
post #1369 of 2072

I believe they moved into larger quarters just  as the economy went south so it was a cashflow problem.

I know that this is probably the wrong place for this but I have this up on ebay and it would be the staple piece to anyones wardrobe. I would definately kept it if it was a 40 L.

So would I!  That's a great looking suit and I'd be on it like a duck on a junebug if it was a 44L.  Good luck.

Which of these tweeds would you choose for a 3 piece tweed suit? (I'm currently leaning toward 3, 5, or 8, but I change my mind every day.)

1

Not 1-4.
post #1374 of 2072

I like 6, 10, and 11.

No. 1 is good, barleycorn with overcheck, very subtle.

post #1376 of 2072

I'm going to partially disagree with Sugarbutch and say 1, 3 or 5. But some of this depends on which colour will work best for you, the relative weights of the tweeds, roughness and so on.

post #1377 of 2072
Another vote for #1.
post #1378 of 2072
Kai, if you don't mind me asking, who are you going with for this order given Bookster's demise?
I just got a jacket from them after 6 months waiting but now I can see I was lucky!
post #1379 of 2072
I like 7.

Love the variation of blues - and would work in the city.
post #1380 of 2072

   wouldn't mind an SC in 6 or 11 at ALL
