1. Hi. We moved systems, and because it was impossible to achieve feature parity between the systems, we opted to archive the old B&S threads but allow users to read them so that they can put them into our new B&S system.

    There is a support thread if you have any issues.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    A three-button, notch-lapeled tuxedo??? Â You're on Style Forum probation. Â [​IMG] Seriously, nice duds. Â If the Oxxford suited my complexion better, and I still worked for Dewey, Cheatham, and Howe, I would seriously contemplate putting in a bid. Â The cheapest I have seen NWT Oxxford around D.C. is $750 (at Filene's Basement).

    [​IMG] The Isaia is seriously cool. It's really more like a two button because of the lapel roll. It is certainly not a typical tux, but I love it. I would have kept it for myself had I not purchased a Dunhill tux (by St. Andrews) six months ago. The fit is incredible.

    I can second that opinion first-hand. Not a typical tux, but a very, very cool take on eveningwear. And the fit is incredible.

    This isn't a big deal at all, but in the auction you state that the Belvest is a tuxedo. I don't think anyone will be confused, though.

    Let me know if you get any Euro size 56 suits.

    If I were the right size, and I weren't looking for my first tuxedo, I'd snap that Isaia up.

    The Isaia tuxedo is what I would imagine Brad Pitt would wear (with a long tie) to the Oscars.  Too bad I don't look like Brad Pitt and don't attend enough black-tie functions to necessitate a second tuxedo.

    I agree with you about the Brad Pitt thing (that this is what he'd wear, that is). But I think you could pull it off. You look pretty similar to Dylan McDermott.
