    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.

    Wow this is a great coat!!! Wonderful purchase, Gdl... Is it cashmere?
    It's wool. Thank G-d or I would have had to sell my wife (or a watch) for a cashmere Cucinelli coat

    i have yet to open a package from edmorel with a battistoni tie in it (along with a turnbull and asser and a santoni fam). i will post photos soon.




    im going to make a prediction here that the paisley tie will be making a comeback this coming season. i think if we make enough splash about it here on the forum and andy, we will be seeing articles about the paisley tie in all the mags.

    isaia 7 fold first two, battistoni , and a recent purchase from silkworm7f on ebay.

    the last one is supposed to be a double four fold, but dont see any difference in that and the isaia 7 fold.
    i m very surprised by the quality and richness of this last tie. i have to thank Roger for the referral.



    i REALLY love the red paisley , it is AMAZING. i just had a hunch it would be, so i went for it right away and bought it. so glad i did.

    Just receive the C&J Connaughts from Shyam. Great shoes! Great service! Thanks for all the advice and your praise of Shyam. Well deserved. I plan to order from him again but can't really decide on which benchgrade to get. Weymouth? Audley?

    thanks Andrew, the one on the right is the one that is from silkworm where Roger discussed on ask andy that he liked the tie and others disagreed he spend 40 dollars on it.

    i like it, although not very knowledgeable of tie construction, from what i can see, the tie is made very well.
    i guess 40 bucks out of curiosity. but it satisfying purchase, also came with a couple of matching cufflinks which are cool, although i definitely will not wear them with the tie at the same time.

    the ta jacket is rad. i love it, it fits just right and there is nothing like it that i have . cant wait to wear it>!
    hope you get the shoes today and like them. [​IMG]
