    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 Folks,

    I am trying to get an idea of where I should be looking for the specific suit I am looking for:

    Namely, thinner lapels, a single-breasted, double vented jacket and slim, plain front pants in a modern cut in charcoal, navy, medium gray. Budget is up to $1000 US. Basically I want something that is modern but still understated. Thought I don't doubt the quality, the BBs suits do not appear to be what I am looking for. Any advice is appreciated. Thank you!

    Should also state that I also am trying to avoid peak lapels.

    +1 for RLBL on sale. Make sure it fits as it requires a certain build to pull it off.
