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.

    Cheers,

    Seize sur Vingt is THAT expensive! [​IMG] Christ! That seems very high for MTM. For that much, I'd go somewhere for full bespoke.
    Last time I checked:
    Charvet MTM shirts were $500-570 but no minimum order!
    Borrelli were $470 - 600
    Kiton, from $570 to 700
    T&A were $400-500, with a minimum order of SIX !!!
    Brioni, between $500-640 (dont recall their policy in regard to the min order).

    For those prices one would better off patronising a local bespoke chemisier.

    That's almost what they charge for bespoke here in Paris. Are you sure of that price?

    I am not 100% sure about anything...[​IMG] However, that's what I recall from my last year inquieries. If anyone is seriously interested, please double check.
    I posted these figures in response to chorse123, who said that $300-400 at Seize sur Vingt is too expensive in comparison to other MTM.
    As we all know, everything in life is relative.
    Cheers!

    Borrelli were $470 - 600

    Borrellis are MTO, not MTM: you can patch together different body, neck, and sleeve sizes, like a Frankenshirt.

    That's more than their bespoke price in Paris. However, E, Charvet RTW in the states begins at $350 BEFORE sales tax (ie, American TVA), and quickly goes up.
