    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.

    Manton, you know you're being disingenuous with this thread. I lack the time to point out how.

    There are a lot of errors in what you write, of course, and someday if I have the time I will point out what they are.

    There is no way to evaluate the quality of Kabbaz shirts, which appears to be what you are asking the forum to do, by showing a photo of a few of them on hangers. Don't sink to the level of some forum mountebank.

    Oh, I don't know. A picture is worth a thousand words, and all that.

    But "worth a thousand words" to whom? And can you back this up?

    The ones you posted have exceeded their quota.

    that somehow this thread has value b/c he posted pictures of shirts hanging-up. ;p

    Manton, if you were wearing the shirts there'd be less quibbling, but then you knew that.

    Even so, a photo won't necessarily do it justice cause it doesn't capture the little things that might be done right by a great shirtmaker. FWIW I'm willing to take Manton's word on it. I'd probably give Kabbaz a shot if I were making 7-figures. Otherwise, I could never justify the price for something that ultimately wears-out fairly quickly. However, he does replace collars and cuffs which is at least something.

    I was confused about this thread until I realized it's some big self aware styleforum in-joke. And I'm starting to think Manton's answers to my "trad book" thread may be insincere. [​IMG] Carry on.

    Haha, yes you win.

    Check out that What are you wearing now in the Streetwear forum on P. 277. I am wearing a black jacket (albeit Hugo Boss, not Express,) Seven Relaxed Bootcuts in the NYD wash, and orange Chucks - no crocs lol.

    The base price is now $750, but I'm sure they go up to $1,000 or more.


    Praise be to Allah Kabbaz doesn't offer cashmere overcoats )))))

    You seem to have missed my point. When Vaclav trolls, it's funny. When Manton trolls, it's not, particularly on a subject where a serious discussion of the details that constitute superior quality by someone qualified to render it would be of benefit to just about everyone.

    In short, I won't be upgrading to Manton 2.0.1.

    I think you have missed the point. This thread was not meant to hold a serious discussion.

    Do you really want to have a lame-ass, serious discussion about a custom shirt? [​IMG]

    As George Harrison said when he saw the Bee Sharps performing on the roof of Moe's Tavern, "It's been done."
