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.

    I checked out the new Filiean's Basement in Union Square (NYC) this past Sunday, and was amazed at the selection of Oxxford suits (Manhattan II) available for $999. While that's an outrageous deal, something tells me that these Oxxfords aren't the same ones that are offered is Louis Boston or Sak's. Anyone know for sure?

    I think they are simply factory overruns.  I have bought two Oxxfords from FB -- one that was from Saks (it had a Saks tag in it), and the other that was one of the "overruns".  I returned the Saks one due to fit (it was a bit small in the shoulders).  While the Saks fabric was more to my desire, I did not find any noticeable difference in construction quality or fabric quality.  I am wearing my overrun Oxxford as we speak in fact, and it is an incredible suit.  Problem is, the overruns only come in one style -- the Manhattan II.  Any non-Manhattan II models that FB carries are ones that were destined (or may have been in at some point) a Cuffs, Saks, Neimans, Bergdorff, etc.  I'd say only about 25% of FB's Oxxfords come from those places.

    Incidentally, if anyone is interested in a NWT Oxxford suit for under $600, I believe that I can pick one up for you in the next week or so at that price. PM me with size and fabric desires and I'll try to make it happen. I'll report back to you about whether I can.
