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.

    While browsing e-bay I noticed this auction: Oxxford suit. Looks to be a beautiful suit. The size tagged is a 40R, but the measurements look like they correspond to a 42R (which I wear). What are some of your experiences with Oxxford's fit?

    depends on your actual chest measurement, if it wouldn't fit you too snugly. Personally, I think you should hold out for a double vented suit-- http://cgi.ebay.com/ws....75&rd=1 http://cgi.ebay.com/ws....85&rd=1 this one, you could send to a good tailor for a full set of buttons, saving a bundle in the process: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws....43&rd=1 in my opinion, this is a really classy suit for the fall/ winter-- great make, if the fit is right for you: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws....29&rd=1 Just something to consider; if you're spending about $800 on a suit, if it were me i'd want the most for my money-- double vents, and-- if possible-- maybe the ability to add functional sleeve buttons.

    I agree about the double vented part. My next suit really needs to be something in the navy spectrum. I'd prefer a solid navy. The Belvest suit is nice, but it already has the functional buttons on it.

    The seller is very responsive. You could e-mail him on the 40R.
