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,

    I'm offended sir!! I suggest our duel be done with umbrellas at noon tomorrow!!

    Seriously, that's why I like the Crest. I think it's conservative without being positively dowdy.



    I really should have added... on me. The shape of the Crest shoulders look terrible on me, but I think that your pciture looks great. We are definitely not the same body type.

    To make the discussion more concrete, here's a picture of a MTM Oxxford Crest. I don't find it boxy at all (I hate boxy-looking suits):

    That's a good looking suit! Did you have to have much done to fit it?

    Sounds awful!

    I personally have not met an Oxxford that I find attractive. They are beautifully made, but are way too frumpy (yes inluding the Radcliffe) for my taste.


    IMO, they only really look good on someone who's not running for public office if you buy the size down long rather than the regular in your size. (Assuming you wear a regular.)

    For a sportcoat, going a size down and regular gives you a classier variant of the current New York look.

    (FWIW, I own two Oxxfords, both bought per the guidelines above.)

    Thanks maxnharry. It's MTM. I have a terrible time finding OTR suits that fit me. I'm 6'3", 160 lbs. and wear a 38L or 38XL jacket, have a 15" neck, 36" sleeves, 31" or 32" waist, 36" inseam....you get the idea.

    iammatt, I find most other Oxxford suit models look terrible on me (frumpy is a good word), but I really like the roped shoulders on the Crest. I think they look good without being "in your face" like Brioni shoulders. In fact when I first saw the Crest model on a store mannequin, I did a 180 degree about-face, because I thought it was a Brioni. It was like no other Oxxford I'd seen and I decided I had to have one. Now I'm considering an Oxxford Crest navy blazer, when I can scrape together the cash...
