1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    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.

    Cheers,

    They're made by Calabrese - it's boxcalf but reasonably sturdy. That said, it's not as scratch resistant as a pebble grain or a shrunk calf that will be soft and scratch proof. I can bring one to the trunk show next week if you'd like

    I think your beard definitely qualifies as athletic by now...

    This is all sorts of awesome! I know the returns are free, but I would hate to waste shipping costs for NMWA because I didn't do my diligence. I'm 5'9 175-180 with 32"/33" waist. Typically a 52 EU as well. I have larger arms and shoulders and struggle with Zegna "Milano" fit, as a point of reference for trim fitting coats. I used to be quite comfortable in the "Roma" fit until they stopped making them. The high arm holes might be hard to overcome for me :(. GDL, do you have a very tall torso or do they also fit a bit shorter? I'm not tall by any means, but thought I'd ask.

    I predict that inside of 48 hours Greg sells out of all the items he is wearing in that fit.

    malat - you should measure your best fitting coat and use for comparison. I could recommend a 52R on 52L based on what you're saying (I'm 3" taller and 25 lbs heavier than you and showing 54L here) but it's too hard to gauge preferences like length etc... like this. Measurements from a "benchmark" jacket are a much better way to go.

    Yes the L is definitely not very long in that coat. Cut is trim, lean and a little bit on the short side. I like the L length for myself

    Makes sense. I will take some measurements this evening. That green coat is my favorite item (among many wonderful items) on the site. I would wear it every single day until Spring...

    I see from people's pics that NMWA gives out the Vass book and a book by Adolf Loos. Are there other freebies and what do we have to buy to get them? (I got nothin' with my coats and my knits.)

    I got a couple of packets of these things called TICs. They are on-the-go button fasteners. I haven't tried one yet, but seems like a cool idea if you lose a button on the run, which I have done in the past. I want one of those NMWA hangers and shirt bags! I guess I will have to order more. :slayer:

    In Stitches: You don't find Drake's too narrow (at 3.15 inches)? I waver...

    Like the combinations here (must get nice brown trousers).

    There are many, many beautiful ties on NMWA site.

    Ah! I'll wait and see then. I did get a couple of hangers with my first order, but I thought that was standard. :) (Those hangers reminded me of Samuelsohn's, actually.)

    So much stuff I want I don't know where to start. Somewhere I suppose, bigger kops will have to wait a little.

    Love the one step checkout.

    Well, come over and take a look at it. You can't be that far...

    It's fairly thick and sturdy IMO
