    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! Hah, just had them shortened slightly. Oh well, you can't satisfy everyone :D

    Edit. As soon as we can get it up on the website. My business partner is the website guy though, and he's leaving for Berlin and won't be back until Monday the 28th. Also, we're still waiting for labels & tags.

    This here is proof positive that the "no navy odd trousers" and "no northern lights" SF rules are BS. You look great, AAS.

    RTC, it is the shoulders. Correct me if I am wrong but the shoulders are more appropriate for someone with more muscular build. I need jackets that have a bit of more padding.

    Gerry, that fabric is Beautiful.

    Noodles - I don't think anyone has said anything bad about the POW suit at all. You might not like you grey fresco Formosa, but this one (the POW) looks fine. Not sure why you'd want to get rid of it just because of association.

    No, you need to stop being anal about things that don't really matter all that much. Maybe plan that way for your next suit or so, but that suit looks fine objectively.

    Could it be better? Sure. But it looks solid and isn't worth fucking with.

    The biggest lesson to you here and on your thread should be that you need to take a step back sometimes. Learn and apply knowledge/info in the future instead of freaking out about everything. If you want a lesson in how far you've come, just go back a year or two and look at your old pics from then.

    I think you are misunderstanding me. I love that suit and the other two that I have and have no plans to get rid of them. But I determined that the shoulder construction is not best suited for me so I am going to try British style.

    Why don't you do the workouts suggested here for 3 months before buying anything?

    Buy an adjustable bench and see what happens.

    Thanks :) Yeah, thanks - turned out to be a stray thread.

    Thank you! I thought you already did - what fabric is your green tweed suit that you used for Pitti?


    Thanks, man. It's by Ariston but I got it from Caccioppoli.

    I actually looked at your stuff a while ago. I really like the esthetics, but concluded you don't make anything above 52 (EU) otr. Am I wrong?

    Somewhere around US$800.000,000.00 was recently spent to extend the Metro Gold Line to a place called "Apu". (Apparently named after the owner of the Kwik-i-Mart in Springfield.) I went there today.

    Arriving at Apu wearing a Brooks Brothers tweed jacket and tie, L L Bean maroon and white University stripe OCBD shirt, Jim Thompson pocket square, Land's End twill trousers, and Allen-Edmonds shoes.

    [​IMG]

    I walked out of the station to see Apu. Like Gertrude Stein said about Oakland, "there is no there there".

    [​IMG]

    This weeked was also the worldwide "Bach In The Subways" celebration of Bach's Birthday. When I got on the train to Apu at Los Angeles Union Passenger Terminal, the local "Bach In The Subways" happening was a 100 year old record player playing music written by Bach.

    This guy wants to start policing now?! I have no interest in having long drawn out discussion here. I will hold my tongue but mind your own business. You make it sound like I am defiling this thread by even talking. Any further discussion you want to have PM me or go to GNAT.
