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,

    I don't know if it's online yet but they've definitely received their shipment. If it's not up on the site, it will be soon.

    I took the photos off the La Portegna website.

    Thanks for your feedback DW. That help a lot.

    I'm planning on ordering IM Pub Jacket and linen crewneck. I ussually wear SC in 39R. I guess size L is what I need.

    Very frustrating that all these Cantarelli jackets are always too short for me :/

    Being 6'1 definitely has its downsides.

    How do the Big John shorts run? What size would I take if I am a 33 waist?

    No 50L in stock :/

    EIther that or I didn't notice. I think that's the second SC I wanted where there was not a 50L option.

    Sorry for the vague comment the first time around.

    +1 in your caveat.

    L only seems to start at 52, in general. This, plus the fact that the difference between R and L is just 1 cm anyway? Would expect or hope in my case for about an inch add-on to the R sizes as anything less is just minor cosmetics.

    Greg, will there be more Farnese belts for summer? Perhaps in lighter colors?

    I hate having someone cover return costs but 2 of these SC's are nice enough to make me want to pick one, order the 50R, and try it on to see. I might just be being too fussy about BOC length.

    Brown linen, beige linen, grey wool, white Camoshita. It's an easy jacket to match between the three colors of check (grey, brown, cream)
    Agreed - not very CBD, but very cool

    Measurements forthcoming, apologies for the delay. That said, the Medium size measure about 33.5" so that seems like the right answer for you.

    Are you sure you're a 50 in Cantarelli? i.e. usually a US 38? The population that wears this chest size and (truly) needs Long coats is small enough that it doesn't make sense for us to stock it.
    Cantarelli 52 is a US 40 more or less. We don't carry Extra-Long.

    Here I am wearing 54L

    Yes, they've arrived and should be online today and tomorrow. Lots of new styles in tubo, elastic and some new canvas and suede belts for summer.
