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.

Attention 42regs....

    wow, this looks like a deal-- for under $600 (i'd offer to buy-it-now from the seller, IF he will cover your shipping costs) you could have yourself a sharp Kiton sportcoat, sleeves ready to have functional buttonholes done. Â Pretty sweet, for a 100% cashmere kiton product. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws....09&rd=1

    Foxx,

    I was looking at that,
    But I was wondering about the color and pattern. Do you think the coat has timeless color and pattern? I am wondering if I would look like wearing my grandfather's sportscoat.

    I would say it depends how you wear it. looks like more of a 'countryside' sportcoat to me, so you might want to wear it with a white shirt/ jeans/ loafers in Central Park this fall, or something like that. then again, this fall i'm sure that type of sportcoat will be all the rage everywhere-- every time i see an article in the Robb Report about fall clothing, i see items like that one. Suede shoes or boots might not be a bad idea to wear with the jacket, as well. good luck-- I'm eyeing a Kiton tuxedo in my exact size at the moment, that i can't possibly afford right now. At least one of us should pick up a Kiton item.

    This would work out on spring as well since it has green and yellowish lines. I am thinking, this coat would make a splended outfit for a date. Ok, I think i am gonna get this .. [​IMG]

    do it.....do it.....just prominse you'll have functional sleeve buttons done on it, as a kiton item like that is just begging for them. If you want, i can recommend a place that will do it for $100 and ship it back to you in a flat box with hanger/ suit bag, via UPS shipping.
