    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.

    Are all 6 x 1 DBs terribly dated and unwearable?

    Why is 4x1 DB not a classic ?

    BTW, is there any difference between a 6X1 and a 4X1 Db except for the 2 top buttons ?

    Supposedly dated and a relic of the 1980s and 1990s, but SF icon Price of Wales/Duke of Windsor sported jackets with this button stance (although these might have been capable of both 6x1 and 6x1 buttonings, as are RL's DBs).

    Really? I have the three volume Sotheby's auction book from when the contents of his Paris flat were sold off in 1997. Among the many great color plates of his clothes, I dont' recall seeing a single 6x1. 4x1s aplenty, though, since that's what Scholte cut for him in DBs.

    Do you have any pics of him in a 6x1?

    For some reason they seem off/strange to me, even though I've seen a couple of nice ones, I think 6 is 'normal' standard.

    I don't like'em. The 6x2 is the best configuration in my mind.

    Very nice.


    I don't like. I tried buttoning my DB jacket in this fashion the other day and it droops too much in the front.

    Churchill didn't want him even back in the country...

    His wife had an affair with German spies in pre-war London...

    A marriage made in Nazi heaven.

    I have a RLPL 6x2 that naturally rolls into a 6x1. I personally think it's quite nice.
