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.

    Interesting the choices you made. They are all such different silhouettes with differing looks and methods of construction.

    I didn't make any choices yet, I will try out this ones first, and so see what fits me better.As I will take 6-8 suits, I think is reasonable to get different looks, maybe I will split this order with 3 tailors, 2 british and 1 italian.

    Ballmouse, does Richard Anderson and Steed offer a great price/quality compared to Huntsman and A&S?

    Not if you get them altogether in one room. Then, they become a Dream Team, like the opening credits in The Six Million Dollar Man.

    Just imagine it: a suit with every feature. A fly with buttons and zipper. Center vent? Yes...but side vents, too. Soft shoulders with military flair.

    Turnback cuffs so expertly sewn that the naked eye can't see them...you need a microscope!

    A high powered one, the kind from Germany.

    If you went to London and have lots of dough, go to Anderson & Sheppard in Savile Row you dig! For shirts, Turnbull & Asser. Also they got T&A in NYC and Los Angeles as well. :)

    If I get a customer asking for 6 or 8 suits, I would encourage them to try 1 especially if the supposedly have not had bespoke suits before. Someone who comes into a tailoring room and orders 6 or 8 suits would usually be too good to be true

    any tailor that takes a 6-8 suit initial order from a new customer is just begging for trouble.

    Anyone ever heard of Michael Reslan in NYC? He has a penthouse boutique store by appointment only.

    I assume the appointments are needed to give him enough time to change from his pajamas and brush his teeth.
