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.

    What's a decent briefcase (under 200$) for a young guy on his first real job (grinding at a bank, downtown)?

    They have some new ones that are under $200. Also, check eBay for some gently used models or new discontinued models. They age very well.

    What does it mean when a seller says that a jacket they're selling is 'fully lined'? Why is it a good thing?

    Nb: Is it the same as a suit being fully canvassed? if so, I have the answer to my questions.

    Saying a jacket is fully lined is mostly a marketing technique, it doesn't mean it is better, it just means that the whole back, arms and sides have lining. This is not the same thing as fully canvassed. The canvassing is in between the lining and the suit's outer fabric in the front sections of the jacket.

    In fact, a partially lined jacket may be superior (sorta) to a fully lined one, as the seams and such must be nicely finished because they won't be hidden by lining.

    It seems to me that sellers of top end sportcoats (e.g. Zegnas, Canalis) on SF and elsewhere often do not advertise canvassing in their products.

    Questions: Is canvassing not a factor when puchasing high end SCs, unlike in suits? So, while the best suits shoudl be canvassed, that is not the case for SCs?

    No difference between a jacket paired with pants and a jacket sold on it's own. The same build issues exist.

    No point pushing canvassing in ads if the average customer has no idea what it is or if they should care.

    Your ads should push things that people have an idea about.

    Seeing you on the streets, grey looks better in my opinion.

    Often also called a 'mitered' cuff.

    I bought a suit off of SF, the measurements to the jacket were perfect, but the pants were 35 and I'm a 32. He said it could be tailored to fit, is it possible or did I just take a loss?
