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.

    I don't own that many suits, maybe 20. I would say that half of them are DB. I couldn't really tell you what makes me like them at least as much, if not more, than SB.

    Often times, I hear people say on the forums: Young guys can't wear DB. I can't understand this. I turned 29 yesterday and have worn them for at least 4 years. I feel just as comfortable wearing DB as SB.

    In what sense? Uniform or civilian? It's a point to note that the majority of the better regiments in the British Army point the young officer to have their uniforms and suits made with a certain tailor on the Row.

    I guess more civilian. The observation was based on what I see officers wearing in WWII photos and other pics. It just seems they are very streamlined. Just an observation.

    It truly is. Remember Punky Brewster? She had one, too. A crime against humanity.

    Here's a very odd Cable Car Clothiers DB suit I recently picked up and gave away.

    Looked like a keystone 6x2 but the top/second/middle buttonhole was absent.

    Price from Dec 2009 for three piece SB = £2850 inc. VAT.

    I received a 20% discount on that as they were running a promotion on bespoke tailoring.

    Wow. That's one of the nicest DB suits I've ever seen. I like the metal buttons - they complement the jacket very well.

    the lapels don't look that big, or were you talking about a different jacket?

    It's that pesky camera angle and relaxed pose that make the difference. The lapels look a bit bigger and with more belly IRL (in robot life).

    I just started reading Eric Musgrave's Sharp Suits, and this 8x4 (or 8x3 -- hard to tell) coat totally knocked me out. I don't know if it's the best DB coat I've ever seen, but it sure as hell is the best 8-button DB coat I've ever seen. [​IMG]
