1. Welcome to the new Styleforum!

    We are currently fine-tuning the forum for your browsing pleasure, so bear with any lingering dust as we work to make Styleforum even more awesome than it was. I'd like to keep you abreast of the improvements we've made over the past few days.
    @notification emails have been added, in response to user requests

    Attached images are now Full Size by default

    Users are now all allowed three (3) links in their signature files,

    SSL certification is now in place so you can all browse securely.

    The server has been reconfigured so that site speeds will improve.

    Notice: Right now the site is slow because we are fixing all the images from the past 4 months. Many of you noticed that these were missing, and we are fixing that problem now. Unfortunately, it is taking up a lot of resources and causing the site to be slow.

    Oh, and don’t forget to head over to the Styleforum Journal, because we’re giving away two pairs of Carmina shoes to celebrate our move!

    Please address any questions about using the new forum to support@styleforum.net

    Can anyone illuminate me as to the differences between the various (there were four at last count - Parker, Alexander, Cooke and another whose name escapes me) cutters' styles at Poole? This is of course within the broader house style of a median between drape and hard, and of classic and understated elegance.

    For example, apparently Alex cuts a coat with more closed quarters, and prefers vents on a dinner jacket.

    Bumping this thread as I am interested in the same question. (I met with Simon last night in NYC; the cutter on hand was Alex.)

    Annual bump!

    I'm interested in this question as well. Also perhaps there are Poole customers on the forum who could post pictures?
