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.

    Wow, those are great shoes, Alan (not to mention a real steal). Don't let anyone dissuade you from the flat laces. With some conditioner and a new heel they could be spectacular. Are they a slight pebble grain?

    Yes, they seem to have a pebble grain to them. I'll report back when they get here. The brown ones do like they'll need a new heel, but I think the black pair should be fine.

    Just put a 3 Button Navy Pinstripe RL Black Label suit on hold. Been trying to weasel a major discount on it but had to bite asap due to an impending "dressy" event (read: Xmas Party). anyway im getting the private sale and Nov16 discount so I managed some damage limitation. Will post (sh*tty) cell phone picks in a bit

    [​IMG]

    yes the sleeves are real short (The Jacket is a 38s instead of 38r, I chose the 38s for the shorter jacket length), and I will have them let it out a bit. Otherwise the suit fits perfectly and only needs minor alterations (pant waist, leg opening, sleeves, maybe suit waist, oh and pockets)
