1. Hi. We moved systems, and because it was impossible to achieve feature parity between the systems, we opted to archive the old B&S threads but allow users to read them so that they can put them into our new B&S system.

    There is a support thread if you have any issues.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

  2. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Up for sale is an incredible NWT Canali suit. Recent season model. (2011-ish)

    This thing hits every damn note on the iGent scale. Full of win. Cut slim.

    I'll let the specs speak for themselves:

    -Made in Italy by Canali
    -Full canvas construction
    -Soft shoulder with minimal padding
    -High armholes
    -Low two-button stance
    -Double vents (with factory basting attached --- aka SUPER new with tags)
    -Four season weight 100% virgin wool fabric
    -Charcoal with subtle blue Prince of Wales check / Glen plaid
    -Jacket fully lined with cupro bemberg
    -Flat front pants
    -Slim cut with great waist suppression
    -Will generally need little or alterations (aside from the hem)

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    At full retail with sales tax, this suit would costs approximately $1945. (see tag)

    Considering keeping this suit and tweaking the shoulders to fit my frame a bit. I have a bad habit of kopping stuff even if it doesn't fit perfectly. Selling this suit at cost. Since this is an extreme staple suit, I will not be considering lowball offers.

    $725 shipped CONUS

    Price is consistent with this non-staple tan Canali suit on eBay

    Always Add 5% for PayPal. I can no longer accept personal payments. As is implied with all SF classified listings, the sale is final. Sold as is.​

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Tagged a 40S, but it is clearly a 40R. (~30 BOC length)

    Approximate measurements:

    Shoulders from seam to seam: 18.5
    Chest pit to pit: 21.5
    Sleeve from seam to cuff: 24.5 (perfect length for showing cuff on most frames, but there is ~1.75 inches of material to let out)
    Jacket Length from BOC: 30

    Waist: 33 (with material to let out)
    Rise: 11.25
    Inseam: 34.5 (unfinished, unhemmed, uncuffed)
    Leg opening: 8.35
