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 purchased a brioni suit inside it mentions that it is a super 150's the label is black with red writing. Where does this fall in the brioni spectrum

    well, you certainly can't go wrong with a brioni in super 150s wool, that's for sure.

    I've collected several Brioni pieces, and i'm a huge fan of the company-- but the only thing i can say about the labels is that Brioni doesn't make any "lesser-line" of clothing, only that (like Oxxford) they sometimes make clothing for individual men's stores, in which case they seem to attach the sleeve buttons (with stitched false-buttonholes), they may or may not use the signature polo-player lining for these stores, and they don't often include a "flower loop" behind the always hand-stitched lapel buttonhole.

    To be honest, the best Brioni clothing i've seen has been Neiman Marcus (very high standards, almost always double vented/ flower loops/ best cloth available, etc.) and the very top of the men's stores (Wilkes Bashford, Stanley Korshak, Saks in NYC, and of course Bergdorf Goodman-- but these are always noted on the label). The "plain" labels are either smaller men's stores, or possibly from a flagship Brioni store (NYC on 57th street, Rodeo Drive).

    I'd be interested to know from someone in NYC what the label looks like at the moment, should they take a look at the merchandise on the racks at the store on 57 E 57th Street.
