  2. 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 cotton double breasted pinstripe suit just sounds wrong.....

    i'm sure the suit itself is fantastic.

    Looks like stealth summer business dress. You get the comfort and coolness of cotton without the obvious look of poplin or seersucker. I'm not exactly sure what "capri cotton" is, but if Oxxford did it then I can't imagine it could be bad. Keep an eye on it and you might get a steal on it.

    Keep in mind cotton is not as receptive to repeated alterations, particularly being let out, as wool is. Once the trouser waist is adjusted the first time that's going to be it.

    Ditto. I don't think the lapel shape is great, but it could be a lot worse.

    Also, does anyone else find it odd that the breast pocket would be basted closed, but the buttons already added?
