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.

    Yes it's the Panta guy. His stuff looks amazing on stitches but I'll give propersuit a try though. Just make sure you get sizable lapels with an attitude and soft shoulders, I think you can carry that look.

    @unbelragazzo Wow, that was what Style Forum was like at one point? Manton, Foo, Whnay and others mixing it up with the tailors on some technical issue about drape and construction. It was pretty cool to read, and not easy to follow which just reminds me that I'm at best an undergrad on these issues. Anyway, in part, one has to be in the business of bespoke to really have the time and resources to delve that deeply into those issues. I'm just interested but with neither time nor resources.

    The point you are raising, however, was nicely presented and quickly seen. I guess the remaining question is whether darts are always put in on orthogonal to the ground. Perhaps not?

    Thanks for the link. It would be nice to have a good list of old threads that would bear fruit from careful reading (and darn it, I have to finish my taxes).

    For me this is the best ... it has a beautiful blue tone. And the beautiful texture of the fabric.

    I agree with GC on both counts. A beautiful tone and wonderful texture. Not a staple though, but for someone who has a million blue jackets, this is one I'd happily add to my collection. It would be an excellent third blue jacket, after a standard navy blazer and a navy double breasted. At that price though, jungalo, I might consider mtm?

    Need this thread's help:

    Could y'all point me in the direction of interviews with tailor's that y'all enjoyed reading and let me know why you liked them (or what would have been better)?

    Clags-They are mtm.

    Pliny- I'll take a look through their options. I know they offer different styles of patch pockets I'm not sure about the sizing though.

    Forgive the x post but this IMHO is very worthy


    These landed today from @Henry Carter :slayer:


    and they are fabulous, no question about it just fabulous :nodding:


    As I have said before, for me, the quality of service is as important as the quality of the product. HC delivers on all counts, I recommend you drop by, you will not be disappointed.


    I will be returning!

    Got 3 ties from HC and they are some of my favorites. Great share, Cleav!

    @Henry Carter has been Noodle Thread Certified for a while now. Speaking of, HC, why haven't you posted your Noodle Thread Qualification Certificate on your website yet?

    Edit: Since we are counting HC ties, I have 8. I really feel like he's under represented in my collection given how much I like him and his wares. 9 from Howard Yount. 6 from Panta. 13 from Hober. HC should be above Yount imo. I'll need to do something about that shortly.

    (Other SF Family members, all <6:

    ConradWu
    Passagio Cravatte
    Unipair
    Kent Wang
    NMWA)

    Also, Panta, Henry Carter, and Sam Hober are the only Noodle Thread Certified purveyors of ties at the moment.

    I've yet to get one HC tie.
    Cleav's grey tie is very nice.

    Thanks Luv. These are my first HC but certainly not my last. I'm going to get a couple of those Macclesfields, they look fantastic. What have you got mate?

    That may be a monitor or my pic as it's slate blue IRL, love the colour!


    If you go to the HC thread and I think it's page 75, he's got the tie set up with a light blue shirt and blue SC it looks superb :nodding:

    For $950ish, this is what I picked up with the tags still attached and no alterations...with some luck and from a very good fellow SF member. You know who you are. [​IMG]

    Why not this route for your next suit? Just think about it, but still try Proper Suits and see how they're like.

    I've been to his website and I've always wanted to order something but the colors on his website are off and it is hard to judge. I know HC said that he is working or has fixed this issue. I just wish that I ordered something from HC when I was on my spending spree. I am furniture shopping with the wife and so I am dead broke. [​IMG]

    Ties that would work well with what you wear:

    and something you should experiment with as you are going to be working on shifting one or two items out of UCBD territory (an awesome endeavor on your part):

    Also, it's half off if your wife asks. Though only two are left. Looks like beautiful linen. If I wore more white shirts, I'd be all over it.

    Accurate colors.

    That's a shame Doodals, but you need something to sit on and eat off I suppose!

    I do recall your conversation regarding colours and swatches I believe. FWIW those two I ordered mirror what I saw on the site, so when you're ready go with confidence :nodding:
