    Anybody here on Google+ yet?

    Isn't it iPhone /Android only? and by invite?

    Sounds a bit better than face book

    As a dedicated medium timer.

    Following on from other things - I started my own site just for clothes I'm offloading on blogspot and am whacking up pics etc and including it in the signature - seems easy enough and I can send it to others not on any forums etc.

    I've still got to add measurements and pics. I haven't even thought of putting stuff on FS here or eBay yet - etsy perhaps.


    I can't believe that nobody has taken you up on the Church's - I briefly considered amputating a toe or two to make it fit.

    I am sure it would be a speedy turn around by PayPal taking no longer then several months...

    It will be iPhone soon. At the moment it is web and android only and they shut down invites due to massive demand. I managed to get in before that and I must say it's pretty good. I use facebook begrudgingly but I'll happily use google+. You have a lot more control over general privacy and who sees your updates. edit : also the interface is fantastic.

    The only point of facebook is to creep on your friend's attractive friends, so I don't see point of Google+ until everyone decide to join [​IMG] Might actually drop by down at Zegna again and pick up another tie for a friend as present. It's about time he stop getting stuff from Satch and Calibre and what not at full retail. But then again picking a tie for another dood is a bit gay (not that there's anything wrong with being gay).

    gotta be the XXL [​IMG]

    your pic looks like it could be the XXL.

    49.2mm dial - but mine doesn't look big on me (I think)

    yep, XXL. I think it has actually been discontinued, but stock shouldn't be too hard to find around the traps. I believe it's been superseded by the Aqua Terra XXL (which is basically the same watch with a different dial & strap)

    Would love to see pics of that crombie coat.

    Yep. I hear there is a workaround for invites but happy to wait until they open it up again in a few days if you'd be kind enough to send one my way!

    Hope not. Wave was a clunky disaster.

    I've got some pics but I can't capture the colour at all properly. I'll search on Bookster to see a similar color and pattern.

    Its very English, more country than city, but not casual, in my mind anyway.

    a bit like this but darker

    Edit - I've now banged a few more pics up - it is hard to get colours right - especially with the flash.

    Its next to impossible to get him to shorten the sleeves. I had to trick him by lifting my shoulders to pull my arms up to make it seem the sleeve was too long. Then he agreed to take an 1" off. :)

    He does a fantastic job every time, very knowlegable and is very well priced.


    I use favazzo. Gary is a good alterations tailor but you have to be specific on what you want. For example when I requested sleeve shortening he said they looked fine ( zero cuff was showing). Also tried to give me a full break when I requested slight break. So for fitting not so great, actual work very good and reasonably priced.

    Where do you guys buy your suit hangers? I like the 3 maple hangers for $75 on "the hanger project" but I don't want to pay $50 shipping.
