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.

    Well, yes. But I've posted this "shooting jacket" before...

    [​IMG]

    It should be finished in a month or so, but as it's a fairly robust tweed it won't get worn until Fall at the earliest. I'm almost certainly gonna pay the balance for this jacket on Monday to lock in some advantage of the UK's misguided Brexit vote and the subsequent meltdown of their currency. I'll probably also strongly consider paying upfront form next commission with Steed, which will be a make up of the Minnis 656 houndstooth flannel.

    I also have a DB jacket in Holland & Sherry tobacco linen on the way, but no pictures of that yet.

    I hope you know of the function "follow thread". That way you can see when there's a new post, without having to open the thread and trouble your eyes and mind with the sight of big lapels...

    Last fitting on a 3r2 patch wool/silk/linen. Not my favorite pants for this jacket, but some navy will help ground the light base.

    How's the quality of Marco Cerrato compared to Pasquale Mola?

    Never tried Mola so wouldn't know. But Cerrato is very, very good. Taking delivery of three more pairs next week...

    Ok, I will :)

    I think usually he prefers a meeting in the morning and a fitting in the afternoon (only if you bring you own cloth, mind you) but in my case I had spent some time going through cloth books while he was busy cutting, so when I had decided on the fabric for my third pair of pants he said I was welcome to stay for half an hour while his wife was putting the pieces together. Instead I went for a coffee, and when I was back 40 min later the trousers were just being finished for my fitting.

    As promised a photo of my second batch of bespoke pants from Cerrato:

    [​IMG]

    They are an addition to my summer wardrobe so two pairs in cotton (Fox Khakee) and one pair in Fresco.Though we communicated through google translate and email all details are exactly as I requested. The level of handwork in his pants is truly impressive :)

    You absolutely do. Would really wish they did more colours in this quality.

    Hmm, there's a blue and a cream/ivory version in 200 gr. (but feel substantially heavier), both of which are referred to as simply Khakee.

    OK, my understanding is that it was blue and, well, khaki. I thought that ivory means white.
