1. Hi. We moved systems, and because it was impossible to achieve feature parity between the systems, we opted to archive the old B&S threads but allow users to read them so that they can put them into our new B&S system.

    There is a support thread if you have any issues.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

  2. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Alright guys -- unfortunately, I have lost a pretty good amount of weight and three of my Formosa garments just aren't fitting the way they should be. I need to liquidate to make room for some other stuff. They are not getting near enough wear. They are all Size 50.

    Here are the measurements for all three:

    Chest (IN): 43.3
    Length (IN): 30.7
    Shoulder (IN): 18.9
    Rise (IN): 10.2
    Waist (IN) 36.0

    Formosa Gunclub - $600.00 SOLD

    The famous Drapers 2059. A beautiful fabric, something that really must be seen and felt to be appreciated. Wore this jacket under 10 times. 3/2, smoked MOP buttons, the works. I will measure the sleeves when I get home, but there are no working buttonholes. I have had the waist of the jacket taken in a smidge. A small note -- for some reason or another, the stitching on the lining has kind of come undone. It doesn't really affect anything, but I will take pictures of it anyways.

    Drapers Less-than-blue Hopsack - $650.00 SOLD

    My favorite jacket. I am going to replace this bad boy. I love it.

    The blue is less saturated than the pictures makes it look!

    It has not been altered in any manner, just the buttons attached to the sleeve. Only caveat - for some reason, there are a few errant threads on the back of the left shoulder. Never really bothered me. 3/2, dark brown buttons, just a great, great jacket.

    Tobacco Linen suit - $750.00 SOLD

    A great brown linen suit. I will definitely be getting another. Just quirky enough. The jacket has not been altered in any way. Pants have been cuffed. I will get measurements on the cuffs up later. Probably has less than 10 wears.

    The inseam measures 31", outseam 40.5", and the cuff is 1.75", with some material stuff in there.

    Nice. I'd go for the linen if I didn't already have one in Tobacco fresco, and being fat.

    Torn if I want to get this tobacco, or one in a slightly lighter shade.

    Bad news - that was officially (just) sold to Coxsackie :(.

    Only one remaining is the Drapers Hopsack - which I may end up removing if it doesn't sell soon.

    It'll be a shame if no one buys the hopsack at such a generous price. Quite the steal and Formosa may be the best RTW there is, especially from a quality:price ratio

    I just touted it over in the B&S thread.

    I agree completely TM79.

    I am selling these Formosa's to buy other Formosa's.
