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.

    hi gents

    i have bought a suit from yoox recently that is under the Castangia brand, i have own 2 other Castangia and this one has a slightly different lable on it, it says "castangia" on it with a small letter "leasure" underneath, not sure if this is a younger more casual line (maybe not as well made?)

    i will post some pics when i get home, interested to find out more about this

    cheers

    Quote: No. Handsewn buttonholes are even from the right side but uneven or even ugly looking on the inside [unless they have been double worked which is rather unusual].

    uh i see, i wonder if these are done in the same standards as regular Castangia suits (which i have read is pretty good quality for RTW)

    cheers

    I received a suit from the leisure line today, appears to have a full floating canvas, super light shoulder padding and con rollino. Fit is trim, pants are tapered to a narrow leg opening.
