    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.

    ^^ so far, alot! My main concern when I found these on ebay was the D width since im an EE, but I figured a thinner leather would stretch enough...
    When i first put them on, they were on the snug and slim side, but after wearing them alot today they fitted comfortable.
    The leather isnt that great, for instance, the timberland boat shoes I have has a much nicer color and texture, but what the heck. Look wise I like these alot, especially with the work boot style laces. The decent padding is a big plus aswell,as the fore mentioned timberlands are far too hard to walk long distances in..

    So I'm in Vegas today, and everytime I'm here I usually stop by American Apparel. Did not like their V-neck too much but I picked up some T's. But I went to "express jeans" and found a very nice fitting V-neck.

    arrived in the mail today.....RafxFred Perry longsleeve black polo. Made in Portugal?? [​IMG] at least it didnt cost too much more than their normal gear [​IMG] I did see the waffle knit polo at Barneys from FredxRaf....what a bunch of shit that garment is. Way too thick for a shortsleeve polo, and the iron-on looking patch with the laurel is garbage looking. Also Barneys is selling it for almost $100 more than you can get it from UK including shipping. I think I'm at the point where I'll never buy anything from Barneys unless it's sale time.

    Their markup isn't that much more, majority of the diff has to do with euro/gbp difference.

    The portugal is nonsense, I did see one that was italy though.

    nice choice j

    figure you'd approve

    actually it does look quite nice when worn, has a good fitted shape and the length is just right to wear untucked. sleeve length is perfect for me too and I like the button at the cuff

    3 new suits this week & another 1 or 2 by the end of this month if Ethandesu comes through with the goods.

    The other 2 will be navy with silver bead stripe & a charcoal with various self stripes (light blue, dark blue & chocolate).

    I have decided to go back to my Trad Italian style instead of my current GA FITs.

    True to my OCD, all the new suits are the same cut (except for the Milano):
    - all made in Japan
    - minimal shoulder
    - tight fit
    - minimal break with a 5cm cuff
    - no belt loops (undecided to have either side tabs or a rear tab only)

    Suit - Mid blue shark skin. Rolling 3B SB notched lapel. Ortona weave. Fine Super Merino wool Super 120's ("Osaka cut" MIJ for Herringbone)
    This has gone back, to shorten the pant by 1cm & increase the cuff by 1cm, some adjustments to the waist/blades & removal of belt loops

    Suit - Mid-grey w caramel window pane. Rolling 3B SB notched lapel. Wool Super 120s ("Osaka cut" MIJ for Herringbone)
    Pictures to come as there are few minor tweaks
