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.

    Since Earthmover was nice enough to hook me up with some free ties, I figure I will keep the good karma flowing with a free item of my own (catch - you have to pay $10 shipping in the US, more for Int'l). I have up for grabs a custom H. Freeman suit. 6x2 double breasted, higher stance, double vented, and fully canvassed. It is done in dark charcoal gray flannel with a faint herringbone pattern, and also has pinstripes of subtle blue-green and dark red (the red and green form a double stripe with about 1/20" space inbetween, and the double stripes are spaced about an inch apart). Pants are flat front and cuffed. Sleeves have real nice striped lining. I will post pics later (unless there is immediate interest) but for now here are the measurements: Jacket: Chest: 43" Shoulders: 19" Sleeves: 25.5" from shoulder to end of sleeve Length: 31.5" Pants Waist: 38" (you may need to have this tailored) Inseam: 30.5" with maybe a half inch to let out, or 2.5" if cuffs are let out Outseam: 42" PM me if you are interested.

    A new caveat to the winning forum member - you must post a picture of yourself wearing the suit, just so we all know how the StyleForum crew rolls. [​IMG]

    Bonus points if the winner has two to six lovely accoutrements at his side, ala Connemara.

    PM sent. Sounds like a good fit for me [​IMG] edit: I will do my best to find some accoutrements for a photo but it may be hard to find that many blondes here in Japan.

    4 non-blondes?

    Versaceman, aren't you overreacting a bit to the ties? I mean, there weren't even free, really. What a nice gesture, though. I hope it's a perfect fit to whomever ends up with it!

    Not at all - don't worry. I just had this suit sitting in my closet, intended to have it tailored to my measurements a loooong time ago, and recently realized I probably wouldn't wear it. I'd rather see it go to a good home.

    Alter was the first to PM, so the suit is his, unless he has second thoughts.

    I've got some other items to unload as well - stay tuned.

    If you're a 40r like I'm supposing, consider me tuned.

    Original winner backed out of the sale, I PM'd the second person that messaged me about the suit, but have not heard back in a few days. I will give him another day or two and then put it back up for offer.
