    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.

    there's some nice Purple Lable wool trousers on Ebay right now for $90... the pair I'm interested in are a 35" waist. I wear a 36 in most designers, is expanding the waist via a tailor not a problem? I assume 1" won't throw off the balance...

    One inch is unlikely to affect the balance at all. Go for it.

    As in the cut or the waist line...

    More the waist line than the cut. These must be good quality trousers because that darned global warming is making most of my other trousers shrink too much in the waist. These have probably shrunk the least.
