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.

Get ready for fall w/ Doc's biggest sales thread yet - PL, black label, much more

    I really like those Polo suede brogues. Wish they were a 9. Do you know how they'd compare size-wise to an A-E 9? Great stuff.

    Hopefully there will be other folks who own these who can field this question. But I bought them from a seller who thought they were a US 9 when they're actually a US 8.5. They're too small for me, though I wear a 9 in many shoes. I wouldn't think they run particularly large.

    I've seen these and they are nice. FWIW, they have the mystery tags that I've seen in Lanvin suits and jackets and some RLPL. Good quality. Pretty slim through the waist, but I would have bought one in my size if I didn't have four jackets that fit the same spot in my wardrobe.

    If we are talking about the same tags, they are no longer a mystery. They are definitely Corneliani.

    I have a similar brown cashmere Polo jacket to the one you're selling. I haven't gotten round to rubbing it over my extremely nude body yet, but I'll take your recommendation on board! [​IMG]

    Fun thread to read, too.

    Not sure how I missed this yesterday but I'll echo what others have said: Amazing stuff but you're torturing the tall folk around here with all the 40 and 42Rs? A Black Label suit or blazer would be especially nice in a 40L.

    Sent you pm about the pocket squares.

    The Polo suede shoes are, approximately, 11 6/16 inches in length, by just a bit more than 4 inches at the widest. Measurement taken on the outside of the sole.
