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.

    Hot on the heels of his GQ win for "Best Menswear Designer of the Year" and the resulting (and rather competent) Levi's Collaboration, Alabama good old boy Billy Reid stabs further westward with his Fall/Winter 2011 line. Plenty of these pieces seem a natural fit with his Stetson hat collaboration, a collection that skews more "Boardwalk Empire" than "Mad Men" in terms of period references and patterns. Tobacco brown leather takes the form of a tough-looking overcoat and a ruggedly elegant blazer. Boots are subtly brogued so as to not look too dandy, and shirts in a variety of fits and patterns are ever present. It may seem like his collection is going mainstream with this borderline "more-of-the-same" design -- it's different, but only slightly. That may be because he plans on expanding the brand, with plans to open up a store in Washington, DC coming into fruition. Nevertheless, Billy Reid stays straddling the line between an aspiring Ralph Lauren and a so-called "heritage brand."

    that's one hardy-looking duffle.

    Always been a fan of Billy Reid. Great photos of nice boots. Anyone else brogued out though?

    I really, really like this look. I wouldn't wear it myself, but I like it a lot.

    The loose pants are interesting. I wonder if others will tilt toward stovepipe legs.
