    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.

    Hey everyone, I don't know if I'm alone in feeling this way, but I'm 19 years old and cannot find an overcoat that I looks appropriate on me. I'm not really sure what to wear over my suits (yeah, I have to wear them quite often) when I'm outside in Canadian winters. Does anyone have any ideas of what kind of coat I could wear?

    I'm not sure what looks inappropriate on him, but I do need advice on Coat in Canadian winters as well.
    Huge distances, open spaces, ice cold winds, lots of walking, and wool/cashmere overcoats don't help.

    So far the only thing that saves me is Canada goose, and Shearling coat. any other suggestions?

    But your Toronto winters are practically warm compared to the -40 we get up here... I'm perfectly fine in a wool overcoat. What kind of distances are you walking?

    I don't even know how you survive there.

    With no car and busy schedule between school and work I'm talking like 15-20 minute walk daytime and about same around midnight (the worst).

    Plus, I'm a very cold person myself.

    Since, you know what I'm talking about, tell whats the warmest appropriate jacket I can get?

    Under what circumstances can a suit jacket length be extended? I hear a few people mention that their tailor can take it down a few cm's, but does that apply to only certain RTW brands that leave some room there?

    Cheers. Where are these threads? Done a search for "lobb tree" in title and came up with a blank.
    A search for "Lobb shoe trees" not limited to thread title turns them up in the first couple pages of search results. The info is spread out across several threads (I don't recall the exact thread titles), but there's lots of it out there.

    I've never heard of a jacket's length being extended. Issues of proportion aside, I cannot imagine a maker who leaves a fabric allowance through the front quarters of a jacket that would permit extending its length.

    1) layer. Winter in TO can be -20 one day and +20 the next.

    2) various small features really help. So zipper with buttons on the outside. The buttons close the front over the zipper. When it's really windy the wind will go right past the zipper teeth. For the sleeves make sure the cuffs are fitted. A hood. I'd add a hat under the hood when it's really cold.


    Obviously you want good boots and gloves.No exposed skin.

    You should be able to handle the average day with just a wool coat and layering. It's only those really cold weeks you need the extreme stuff.

    As far as I know, there is no US website for SAB. However, many retailers carry SAB (without explicitly stated so), like Brooks Brothers, Ralph Lauren, J. Peterman, etc.,

    Is anyone familar with this Brooks Brothers sale going on now? Enjoy 25% off when using your BB Card or BB Platinum card, Enjoy 15% off when using any other form of payment. I wonder if I can use my corporate discount with that...

    Does anybody know how to get a turmeric (or mustard) stain out of a shirt? It's fresh. I tried water and a Tide stain pen thing, but no dice.
