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.

    Thanks. They are a strong green that I tend to wear in much more casual settings, but I tried them out today specifically to see how they would do in a primarily brown setting (rather than the blues and grays I normally wear with them). Overall I think it isn't bad. I have a pair of brown cordovan wingtips in the office and I think they look "nicer," but they typically look nicer than just about anything else I can wear.

    http://www.nomanwalksalone.com/inde...acco-brown-suede-tubo-tubular-dress-belt.html It took me awhile to decide, too. I think the suede provides enough texture and contrast, and in person the color is pretty similar without being same. Thank me later!

    I wear the honey brown olimpo a lot with mine and it looks fine to me.

    There is a Formosa on sale that has my eye (Minnis houndstooth). All of my suits are bespoke save for a couple of older RLBLs. I previously tried a Formosa tux and had minor fit issues with the lapels bowing. I suspect the flannel wears a little easier, helps hide the minor fit issues, plus is available in a L (the tux was an R and I am definitely an L). For those of you with Formosa RTW experience, should I take the plunge?

    Received my Il Micio belt and Scye cardigan, both excellent products! Love the details on the Scye cardigan and the Il Micio belt size was spot on per Kyle's suggestion.

    With that cloth, yes. The risk is worth the reward. Take to to a good tailor and live with any "minor" fit issues that can't be addressed...that the majority of people couldn't spot if they stared at.

    Thanks for the feedback. I saw the cloth at Despos's workshop a few weeks ago and it caught my eye. Seeing as I can get the Formosa delivered next week for under $1,400, it seems like a no-brainer, but I'm still tempted to buy a few meters and let Chris make it up for me.

    Only you know the specific fit issues you may have to live with and how much they actually bother you, but $1400 for a handmade suit by a fantastic tailor in that incredible cloth is one helluva deal...but I'm just telling you what you already know. I'm on vacation and have a few beers in me...take it for what it's worth :)

    I like the fabric a lot as well, and thought the make up looked great... But I thought it would make for a great 3 piece so I bought enough fabric for that to happen. Just waiting for my current CMT MTO to make it back first

    It all sure looks good but the shirt looks shorter than the listed measurements.

    Can't remember the exact description but think that's right. Could check my order history if it would be helpful.

    FWIW I'm a shade longer in the torso than the leg (insert your own joke here) and have monkey arms.

    No shiite.

    I've been eyeballing those shirts but being a medium, I was thinking I'd need to size down. And then thinking they are too long. Even for an overshirt.

    Most medium untucked shirts I have are around 28"-29".

    The Large SDC Olive shirt jacket length is 28.7" so I am [​IMG]

    No need to sift through order history. Looks good in that fit!
