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.

Seems Overpriced To Me

    it is a 150s that is why

    I snagged a like-new navy pinstripe Corneliani in 150s along with a NWT brown Corneliani for $180 (for both). The price the seller is asking is absurd, in eBay terms.

    Yea, I've seen some wares from this store that I've liked.. (EG shoes, Santoni Fatte a Mano) and they are ALL overpriced. At least a $100 markup from where he probably purchased them (RLPL sale, Yoox)... not sure he'll ever get my business unless they sell something I just HAVE to have.

    The price may be a tad high by ebay terms for this seller but I've found his service impeccable and the quality of the goods are first rate. You won't be second guessing whether something is really new, etc.

    Having said that, because his prices are on the high side by ebay terms I agree for his goods it's best to wait until you see a "gotta have it."

    That's the canvassed line.

    It looks like it may be the model I tried on in Barney's last fall. If so, the button stance is bizarrely high, two to three inches above the natural waist. Canvassed.

    IMHO...to compare it to this recent EBay purchase of mine makes the price laughable. I got twice the suit for half the price.

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...tem=7775515007

    Yes, used, and a 180* different style from the Armani. Which is why I'm so amused at the uproar over Armani's comments--they were meant to appeal to his customer base, not the usual SR customer. Yet to see how insulted people get, most of whom have never bought bespoke, including from SR, is hilarious.

    Just to clarify, the Oxxford suit that I bought, like the Armani, was also new with tags. Plus it was a 2006 Radcliffe model as well. They currently sell at Bergdorf's for $3200.

    I do agree that they appeal to entirely different buyers, though.

    OK, my fault, must have misread the auction. Don't get me wrong either, that's a great suit, and NWT a really great deal.
