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.

    A friend contacted me regarding the quality of Suit Supply shirting - now, I don't own any so can't comment - but hoping someone here has experience with them so I can pass the information along?

    Hi BM

    Someone recently posted regarding visiting Suit Supply. Said there were some sizing discrepancies.... I think Fox was on the scent for a suit supply acquisition too...

    Thanks DB - discrepancies in sizing meaning between two items tagged the same size, i.e. a quality control issue, or what sometimes happens on SF - where a "sizing discrepancy" is when an item does not fit as one had hoped, LOL!

    The guy behind The Nordic Fit has a fair bit on them. Like this: http://thenordicfit.com/item-of-the-week-blue-suitsupply-shirt

    He mentioned somewhere that the cheaper shirts weren't great, but the more expensive excellent.

    Edit: found where he mentioned it: http://thenordicfit.com/item-of-the-week-printed-cotton-shirt

    On suit supply yes I am looking at them, I still can't decided what to do for the wedding, I'd probably look like a dickhead in double breasted though. Too young. Maybe MJ Bales Inverell with a nice tie, maybe my drakes striped, a white linen pocket square and my Brown Double Monks. I wouldn't mind a nice Glen Plaid, like Bond in Skyfall when he's at the Tempory Mi6 HQ. What would you do if you were me?

    A how much do want to spend?
    B what use would you get out of it post wedding?
    C what fabric/colour would suit your complexion/ personality the best?
    D in terms if shirts & ties would you have to buy something or have you got sufficient in the wardrobe?
    E shoes considering past experience do want need, new shoes? Or is there a pair which will match what ever suit you get?

    Damn I just can't explain things : )

    It was stated by the member that sizing wasn't accurate, say a 40r fit more like a 38r etc... I hope that cleared things if not muddy the waters...

    Heard a rumour you picked some Alden penny loafers, nice hustle man!

    A) Around 600
    B) Job interviews, when I go out to more formal occasions.
    C) No idea. I have light olive skin.
    D) I have my Drake's Knitted Tie and my Drake's Silk Striped Tie. I could see myself wearing the stripe.
    E) I have the Church's Cowes Double Monks in Brown and Black, and hopefully soon some C&J Captoes in Brown, so I believe I'm covered in the shoe department.

    You're allowed 18 sizing mistakes a year, any more than that and I have to beat you..

    Just a reminder about spring cleaning.

    Days like today - ideally with a bit more breeze - are an ideal day to hang clothes out.

    All your winter clothes especially - all wool clothes - suits, jackets, trousers, hang the out on the clothes line outside for a few hours in shade and breeze.
    Kills moths, kills smells, like ciggie smoke etc.
    Inspect in daylight, brush all down with stiff brush.

    Take your Tailors Chalk and mark any bits of dirt/stains for sponging or a gentle rub with Dry Cleaning Fluid later and also mark places for a proper pressing NOT ironing.

    Put winter clothes away in spare room.

    Do not go and choof too much or get drunk and forget to bring clothes back in.

    Maybe something like this with cotton/wool/linen rather than flannel, casual summer separates. He seems to be wearing pieces which you already own.
