    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.

    Thanks, I'm curious to see if they've slimmed down at all, right now they are on my do not buy list.


    TC, well the fit is actually not too bad. It is a half size larger, I'm usually a 15.5 and this is a 16. It's not as fitted as I'm used to but not as tentish or billowy as I feared. However, I still may take it to my tailor when I get the chance and have it fitted a little better but overall I'm quite happy with it.

    Please forgive the poor quality of the photo. My phone dosen't have a white balance setting [​IMG]

    Thanks for the feedback. Looks nice. That appears to be a bit slimmer than the few that I own.

    No problem. You were not the only person to bring up fit issues with JWN shirts. Naturally I was a bit fearfull that I had just purchased a Sea Island Cotton tent but was happy to find that it wasn't. I guess not all JWN shirts are created equal [​IMG]

    I picked up off of ebay, used C&J Handgrade Belgrave in Dark Oak (I think that's the color) for approx. $125

    Have them on today and they feel incredible!! These have very little wear and are incredible to look at. Everyone is asking me about them at work.

    BV stuff have been SOLD!!! Valextra wallet in navy - not my best pic, took these the other day in the hotel room (but the lighting was terrible) will do tomorrow in natural light. The wallet is nice & flat - I just don't get men with THICK wallets. The design is quite good in that the credit card slots are spaced nicely on the left. The right has a flap for receipts etc. The cash section has a divider, but the wallet when folded is approximately the size of a passport so it sits nicely in the breast pocket. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] Will be retiring my Bottega Veneta stuff soon - stay tuned.. * cash & cards not included (also the AU$ is worthless at the moment! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Wonderful looking shoes!



    I ordered a couple of items in the Ede MTM sale today.

    - a 3 piece suit from a black/white houndstooth flannel. 2 button, peak lapels, double vented with a SB waistcoat. Conservative dark navy lining and dark brown/grey horn buttons
    - a DB peak lapel waistcoat from a dove grey mottled flannel with a fawn-coloured back and dark grey horn buttons.

    Can't wait to get them! [​IMG]

    I think this is the first time I've actually seen your BV wallet and clip. Very nice! May you find a good and loving home for them.

    BB Peal tan plaintoe wings (on their way!)
    Rider RBCB1 shell cordovan chukkas
    C&J for Robert Old Norfolk captoe boots (on their way!)
    NOS Florsheim ankle boots (just bought em from B&S 15 minutes ago)

    I think I'm going to have to take a break now.

    Like Douglas above, I've almost completely re-done my shoe collection in past 3 months. I had been wearing 4 pairs of world-traveled and much-loved J&M's (Aristocraft) from the mid-90's that have finally been retired. Probably would have kept on with them were it not for finding this forum....

    New:

    Aldens
    986 LHS in #8 shell
    Norwegian split-toe #8 shell
    Norwegian split-toe loafer #8 shell (great ebay find - love these)
    Wingtip bal shell - black
    Medallion cap-toe blucher shell - black

    A-E
    Macneil longwings shell cordovan
    Soho cap-toes - black

    BB/Peal bal cap-toes - chestnut
    RM Williams Craftsman - dark brown suede
    RM Williams Craftsman - yearling chestnut

    I think I need a break too! Too much Styleforum influence - must...not...look...anymore...
