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.

    I just put on an old 44 and I have no idea how my shoulders ever managed to fit into this. It's mind boggling, I could now use this suit as a parachute.

    It just depends how your fat was distributed. Mine was mostly around my stomach so when I lost around 20kg, I went from a size 40 to a size 38. My shoulder circumference went down by 2 inches but my waist went from 38" to 30".

    it is quite surprising that Hayel did not warn you about downsizing by that much. I've gone to Hayel for so many years and the very first lesson he taught me was to buy suit with the right shoulder fit....everything else is adjustable. Perhaps you were giving him the impression that you are very keen to keep the jacket and downsize?

    That long? I was hoping Ralph to take over sooner....the choice of stuff here even in Sydney is really crap. Why only Collin St have the RLBL suiting range for example

    Thanks for the tassel loafers link, Pink Socks.

    I just received an email from Leather Soul advising that they have an 8-10 month wait time for Alden tassel loafers! Going to be buying from elsewhere it seems.

    Yes, I did. I paid $2.5k for a Tux that even Cutler was complementing me on and only got to wear it once. Goddamn shame.

    And just for the record, unlike Shane over at Rochefort, I actually like Hayel and his son - they do good work (expensive but good).

    In the end, the tux fit very well except one problem - it did not sit flat across the chest (see picture below). Hayel said it was due to the canvassing rolling up, and nothing could be done about it. I might take it to Bijan on O'Connell street just to get a second opinion. I am $3k in, might as well see if I can finish it.

    Hey, I am in Sydney and I order my RLBL suits through the QVB store in the city. You need to know what you want, and they will transfer it from the Collin St store. You are still entitled to the 14 day refund / 30 day exchange policy if it is no good.

    Thanks

    Yeah I am aware that we can do that but i'd rather see the item and all the lines available here. Just scored a short cargo pants today from their 50% off RLBL sale at Chatswood.

    Hayel might be more expensive but he certainly is worth every cent. I dont think i've got any garment that he has not touched one way or another. RLBL is the closest OTR clothing for me but I would need a 36S for the jacket to fit perfectly. AUstralia only have regular and not Shorts so I had to once ordered a 36S Navy suit from the US online store and forwarded through those forwarding companies. All my other 36R suits were shorten by Hayel

    How short do you have to be to get a 36S instead of an R?

    Surely the difference is marginal?

    I am 177cm tall however i like my jacket to be about 28.5" boc. While people would say traditionally the back flap should cover the bum area completely, I like it just a tad higher. Sleeve length also perfect for me (not that it is too much of an issue to get 36R shorten on the sleeve)
