1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Are you looking for anything with a nehru collar or does it necessarily need to be military stile?
    www.beatwear.co.uk have the SHEA STADIUM type beatle suits - not sure what quality and cut are like mind you

    Welcome! You have an interesting first posting. How about having one made Bespoke? And have you checked on Ebay?

    And always remember, Brown shoes with a Mao suit! Never Black.

    No, all the examples cited so far are wrong.

    First of all, it doesn't have a nehru collar.

    And, its got to have four pockets in front.

    Also, the colors are usually military green.

    the common 'Mao' suit is the olive green/brown with a jacket that buttons up like a shirt, with a shirt like collar, all the way to the top. A bit like my Kenzo suit that I bought many moons ago (it was probably on sale and I was probably a bit silly/optimistic/whatever). Although he did sometimes wear suits with a mandarin collar which is a bit like a nehru but slight taller with rounded collars. Never did he wear a suit with a cobra collar (like my Armani, which was on sale and I was a bit silly/optimistic/whatever) [​IMG]

    A "bespoke" Mao suit.....that would be ironic.

    Shanghai's original Baromon shop used to do those.
