    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.

    Keep me in mind...I can make the 50 trousers from your 48 jacket work.

    Yeah, I just ordered my first 50L in the tobacco fresco MTO. The 50R works, but the L will look better. I think Greg ordered some 50L for restocks.... I could be wrong though.

    I generally take a 50R in jackets and a 48R in pants. However I'd be several months away from ordering a Formosa suit. First things first - B&Tailor bespoke project beckons...

    Well, you two broad shouldered, small waisted guys should keep me in mind for when the Fall stock arrives. It would be nice to not have to rely on MTO.

    To the sellers credit, he took great pics. They actually look like high-quality ties.

    The empire ones are subtle, but I also think most people won't conclude a Star Wars reference if they saw you wearing the rebel one (unless they're a big fan). The rebel tie even looks like something Stefano Ricci would make.

    Have been measured up and quoted by Joe, but haven't placed my order yet - requires 100% upfront payment which I'm still trying (and failing, temptation being what it is) to accumulate.

    However, it will most likely be an unlined brown SB suit in a Draper textured linen blend.

    Little of this, little of that.....nothing major. My body type is a curse when it comes to clothing.


    Well, can't wait it to see it after you pull the trigger.

    You'll be waiting a while. Just had an accident with the missus. A Versace type of accident.

    She's not really into brands, thank goodness. But she wanted a shearling coat. This was a shearling coat. The fact that it happened to be Versace was largely irrelevant. We did get a good discount, the quality is superlative, and it looks amazing on her. But there goes the menswear budget...

    See, here, I am the one who makes all these "accidents" happen. I may have a problem. Also, my wife's a saint. :)

    Not so much a criticism as an observation. I agree it looks good (and will look good either way) and is worlds apart from the Isaia and Zegna stuff @The Noodles used to squeeze himself into.

    So if I need to shorten the sleeve and cut off at that pink line, can the tailor move everything (buttons and all) up the sleeve?

    This prob is a dumb question lol
    ...and the sleeves dont need that much shortening

    Yes, but you couldn't do 4 working button holes. Not enough room.
