    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.

    Sounds like a very thoughtful gift from Mrs Clags. Very Springy. Will be looking for it in upcoming fits.

    I like this lot much better than other one. Might just bid on it.

    Are there SF family suits that come even close to NMWA Formosa suits in terms of quality and value? I have to wait for the next batch of NMWA suits to come in.

    Not SF family, but Sartoria Partenopea has a similar style as Formosa. I'm very happy with mine. They retail at about $2500, but can be found for as low as $650 online.

    I've become highly interested in eidos. Good value to quality ratio. Perhaps a bit too modern for you? YMMV

    Don't be in a hurry to buy anything. You are looking for particular features - Extended shoulders and wide lapels. Put your money aside and just wear what you have for now.

    And if you want to know highly rated RTW suits then browse this very useful thread

    Edmorel (Panta Clothing) certainly deserves a mention.

    This is something close to what I have been looking for.
    Light grey.
    Wide lapels.
    Peak Lapels.

    What do you plan on doing with the ties after winning the bid?

    Burn them and post a video of it here :devil:

    Honestly though, send them to the dry cleaner and wear them in good health, not at the same time though.

    Edit: Might share if anyone's interested?

    Are you keeping them for yourself? If not, a group buy might be smart, otherwise we'd be driving up the price for no reason. I'm interested in the navy with red on the right of the 4th pic and one of the lighter blue ties.

    Alright, I've really got all the ties I need so I'm willing to just keep one if I win the auction, and share the rest with you guys (of course with no profit). I'm mostly interested in the second one from the right:

    Tell me which ones you're interested in and we'll divide them if I win. Also, are all of you US residents? If so, you can share the price for the shipping to the US and it will probably be next to nothing (i.e. I send them to one of you and he ships them to the rest).

    I'm also interested in knowing what you're willing to spend so I know how high I should go.

    Nice idea though ties not for Me.

    But dry clean the ties? That's usually contraindicated, but curious if people do this. If unstained then I would not dry clean. They will be pressed to death. I've decided to always buy ties new and on sale. Or perhaps from one of you directly!

    This is great. I cannot fit any of these into my rotation so I'll let others who can make better use of them take them.
    Thanks for the offer EFV [​IMG]

    If I buy used (not often) or deadstock garments I usually dry clean them. I trust my dry cleaner with my life (almost), he's never let me down so far.
