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,

    Ganzo (http://www.ganzo.ne.jp/) - Makers of high-quality leather goods. Anyone looking for bespoke green breast wallet could hit these guys up if Hermes tells you "you're not good enough." (made BBBF shell cordovan wallets until they switched manufacture to the current crap)

    Which company did BB switch to for their cordovan wallets? I was thinking of getting a BB shell cordovan wallet until I saw this post.

    Great that so many from SF have taken part in this so far - are my fears about manufacturing in England coming true as the input from the UK is far from great! More please.

    You have a number of different suit makers.

    You have:

    Samuelsohn - Suit Maker
    S Cohen - Suit Maker

    You used to have Dack's shoes. I was sad to hear they went bust.

    Does anyone know of Chinese companies using this cashmere?
    Yes... http://www.chinaerdos.com/english/default.asp Erdos of Ordos, Inner Mongolia. From what I've seen appears to be very good cashmere as well, although I'm no expert with cashmere. I do have one of their scarfs though, bought from the Erdos shop 2 minutes walk from my apartment.

    Can we make this thread into a first world kind of thread, meaning not to just focus on US and UK but also Canada? I too am interested in supporting well made clothing made by craftspeople, but specifically interested to know who does what here. I know Naked & Famous and Wings & Horns lines are designed here but I do not believe they produced here (I could be wrong). Any other suggestions?

    N&F and W&H are in fact mostly made in Canada. A lot of the Supreme stuff I got from an old buddy of mine is also made in Canada...hoodies, sweatshirts, etc...
