    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.

    T4phage, [​IMG] Oops, here I am talking about m-t-m suits, while you're talking about swimming trunks and shirts. I should keep focused on the topic at hand. So, staying more on topic, I'm also considering a Borrelli m-t-m shirt, but in the somewhat more distant future than a Borrelli m-t-m suit (about a week after delivery of the Borelli suit [​IMG] ). I'll probably go to another shop than Oger's for those shirts, like Montulet in Maastricht. I know about the Berg shirts. The owner(?) (Jack?) was trying VERY hard to steer me towards his m-t-m shirts and also away from Zegna m-t-m suits in favour of (his) Corneliani's. Etro swimming trunks? Â [​IMG] . Alias, Hang in there, all of us here on the forum will provide moral support as much as we can. Nice new avatar by the way. But perhaps a bit violent a reaction to not being able to get your hands on anything Borrelli? Â [​IMG] MtB

    I'm perfectly sorted for jackets and overcoats. I don't even know which one to wear anymore (OK, I'm stretching it a bit too far there, but I think you get what I mean.) And it would be perfect for a Nederlander, which, of course I am. I've been wondering about you though... Â [​IMG] MtB

    I imagine they do. Then, so would the Borrelli's have  [​IMG] , or Vilebrequin for that matter [​IMG] . MtB

    The Borrelli's fit looked like they were for a much older person.

    [Changing mental picture] Â [​IMG] I haven't tried the Borrelli's, so I'll take your word (and with the 'usual' clientele of Pelgers in mind) for it. I would have, though, if I hadn't already had my Vilebrequin. I'm sure glad I got those before they were mass-marketed. MtB

    According to the Borrelli website, there should be a salespoint at DAEBANG DONG DONGIAK KU SEOUL, and GANGNAM-KU .

    Well, I'm not sure "moral" support is correct - we're trying to help him spend his money. [​IMG]
    Well, not 40's anyway. [​IMG]

    Close, very close. I do work for a law-enforcement agency (and for the ministry of Defense at the same time and in the same job). That shouldn't make it too difficult to guess. [​IMG] MtB

    That's what you get in the 'corporate casual' culture of the investigative branch. The nice thing is, everybody accepts it without comment. I even get comments when I don't show up in a suit. I sometimes do this when 'operationally' necessary or I REALLY don't want to wear a suit that day.

    LOL. [​IMG] I only wear suits when I have to give a presentation, or if I am visiting a firm who requests a consultation. Strange - how the suit culture here (in my field) is so different than the States. There, for presentations it is okay to come in jeans or khakis (like a two time Nobel laureate that I knew), but here it is much more formal, although things are changing.
