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.



  2. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    - tagged 38S, has been tailored, so check the measurements below
    - may also work for a 38R if you like a shorter length or even a 40R/S if you have a slimmer build.
    - made in Italy by Saint Andrews
    - light brown, somewhere between caramel and milky coffee
    - 100% linen
    - unique fabric, in my experience
    - 3 buttons, rolling to 2
    - notch lapels
    - double rear vents
    - flap pockets, with ticket pocket
    -5 sleeve buttons. A bit of a curious case here. The previous owner only had the bottom 2 (of 4) buttons as functional. Because my arms are longer than his, i lengthened the jacket and added a 5th non-functioning button on the end.
    - trousers are classically English, with double-forward pleats and lovely side adjusters. The legs are finished with 1.75" turn-ups (cuffs)
    - both jacket and trousers have a lightweight lining

    Could certainly use a quick-press, but otherwise it's good to go.


    shoulder seam - shoulder seam: 18.5"
    chest circumference: 41"
    waist circumference: 35"
    length from base of collar: 29.5"
    crown-cuff sleeve length: 23 (+1" to let down if needed)
    trouser waist: 33.5"
    trouser inside leg: 28" (+1.75" cuffs and 1" in the turn ups)
    trouser leg opening circumference: 18"

    Requesting $250 + shipping.

    Looks pretty nice, shame it's too small/ short for me.
