1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    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.

    Cheers,

    GBS Wool coat. The material is incredibly soft and feels wonderful. 1 of only 3 ever made.

    It is now up to you to locate the other two Wearers of the Coat and destroy them. There can only be one.

    that coat is really good. i tried to read the gbs thread on SZ but there were just way too many jpegs covered in text about nuclear energy.

    Thanks all!

    @Teger: Yes, GBS has a big anti-nuclear power agenda, but the thought and effort that goes into each garment he makes is really high.

    The coat is unlined, but incredibly warm. A solid winter piece. Based off a design from the 1800's. Exquisitely constructed; even the button holes are hand made. Beautiful seam work all throughout. Buttons are real horn and made by hand. It was a special edition made just for Sartorialoft (great store, cannot recommend enough) and I am lucky it was still around in my size! :slayer:

    I will post a photo of the tags which has a lot of information later. For now, here is a fit pic (not me):

    GBS rubs me the wrong way at least from what I've read

    but that doesn't matter because that coat is seriously amazing

    Is the coat lead lined in case of nuclear apocalypse?

    If we learned anything from the last Indiana Jones, you can survive a nuclear blast in a thin, sheet metal refrigerator. No need for any such heavy metals like lead.
