    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.

    Looking at the measurements freaked me out for a 40r but considering they have shoulder extension it doesn't look too weird

    That C&J Westbourne looks really nice. May have to buy one myself.

    Now I am trying to imagine what that jacket would look like on me, heh. My true shoulder to shoulder with a soft/minimal shoulder is 18" and I am a 40R for chest, sleeves, and length (mostly, depending on maker).

    Thanks, Claghorn. I just ordered the Shibumi. Although I didn't mention it, I've also decided I need a few more brown ties, too, so it's perfect in that respect as well. It'll work with a number of my jackets, so it kills a number of birds with one stone.

    Cheers,

    Ac

    The best kind of buy is the deadly buy. Especially if it involves dead birds. Generally this is my philosophy...I buy to fill as many roles as possible. As long as I don't keep refilling the same roles, it works well. Though I do end up with a lot of shades of blue in terms of jackets.

    Such as:

    Got the fabric at a hefty discount from them as it was the last they had in stock and they were trying to move it [​IMG]

    I have a few belts from Meermin. I usually pick them up when I order some shoes. They are great belts for a really low price.
