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,

    NYR,

    This really looks great! Does your tailor have access to the fabrics of the English mills commonly discussed on SF?

    Thank you! Yes. He has access to everything, the lesser stuff I have is from him, he has Harrisons, Hardy, Fox, W Bill, all the good stuff, nd also has lots of Italian...he doesn't charge an arm and a leg for it either.

    And here are some mighty shit pictures of two new commissions (the unpictured third is a suit made of Minnis fresco - 0520). I'll try to bring in a proper camera on the next go.

    I think I saw your length of 520 about 1-2 months ago. Gorgeous fabric. Too bad I have something else similar.

    Here are some shots from a few months back that a photog friend of mine did in Sunset Park. All the attire (except the ties and shoes) are Ercoles. those of you who made Ed's trunk show in March met the photog, Dzemo. (www.photodh.com)

    Love it Rob.

    I was in town 2 weeks back for a wedding, and brought in all my tailoring I needed done for the last few months to Frank.

    Once I was there I ordered another suit, can't wait to fly in for my next fitting!

    Ercole's in the wild. 2-patch lightweight cashmere (much duller and darker green irl). My companion is also of Brooklyn vintage.

    I think they might have some photo placeholders still in place:

    "We have books from: Dormeiul, Scabal, Holland & Sherry, Loro Piana, Harrissons, WBill, and many others (photos of books).

    We also stock many fabrics in house, saving you time and money (photo of stocked fabric)."
