1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    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,

    That is from the lookbook.
    The "Heritage" section on the "About Us" page says:
    It is not hard to see how someone could think they are getting the benfit of Len, Sr.'s exertise when they buy a Carnaby Custom suit. And maybe they are in the sense that Len, Sr. designed the suit blocks. And maybe he has even more input than that.

    ^ Interesting, I hadn't seen that. Maybe Sr. is more involved than I thought.

    Based on the pics, I reached the opposite conclusion.

    Although some are style (lapels etc) they don't work on your body so it doesn't matter if you want to wear a skinny tie, low rise trousers, and skinny lapels, you just don't look good in them.

    The button stance, lapel width and rise of pants are stylistic choices that went wrong. The rest are just plain sloppy fitting.

    I think we all know that suit could be done better, in fairness though I don't think it could be great at that price point no matter who made it. The trouble is, if as a customer, you cut the costs too much this is the kind of result we see again and again. Pay say an extra $500 on that garment and your tailor has the money to rotate sleeves, to do extra fittings etc the result would be probably 3 times better (or more).

    Was there a resolution to this horrible situation?
