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.

    The condition is very good. From the styling, I believe it is relatively recent. There's nothing about it that strikes me as dated in any way.

    Not heavy, light to mid-weight, but I wouldn't consider it tropical. It's a good versatile weight.

    Nice. Pity the sleeves are far too short for me.

    Very tempting. Sleeves would be perfect if they had another half an inch. Let me sleep over it!

    There's certainly enough there to let them out that much.
