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.

    Cheers,

    No experience but their new shop leaves me with the impression you'd be rushed in and rushed out. Gieves is now owned by the Chinese...I think anybody with any sartorial reputation has probably long left that company now - it is a shadow of its former glory.

    As far as I know, it is the same as their previous MTM, you will get a decent suit; I do have a few Gieves RTW suits but nothing from the MTM offerings. For the money, £750/£800 starting price, you should look elsewhere; although worth considering, if on sale with little or no charge compared on RTW suits cost.

    If you are looking to spend that much money on a suit, you should consider the likes of Cad & The Dandy, Graham Browne, etc, who can offer bespoke at about the same price.

    meh. Li & Fung have been involved with G&H for some years now & the quintessentially English brand has been far east owned for some years.

    Who owns most of the USA's debt? What has happened to the USA recently? - Joking aside.

    The old owners were from HK and the new ones are again HK based not the mainland - there is a difference.

    I doubt Li & Fung are targeting the USA market for growth.

    I don't have any experience of their MTO, but their bespoke is wonderful!

    They've already made me jeans, pictured (bought July 2012), and this month I've commissioned:

    More jeans!

    A gorgeous leather jacket

    The unfinished doe skin toile to wear for a casual look...

    Lots of ££££ but worth it, the service and work by the head cutter are impeccable!:)[​IMG]
