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.

    If my morning cup of coffee didn't wake me up, those socks sure did!

    Do they make ski masks?

    Yes, but only in a microfiber/cashmere/Sea Island blend.

    You might be better off trying the XL Pantherellaa and cutting a couple of holes in them.

    That polo shirt is perfect. I just can't cough up $300 for a polo at this point. Living in NYC I may make a cardboard sign and sit on the street corner.

    ^[​IMG] That is an incredibly great looking shirt! Can I ask, Alexander, is the wide bottom cuff more an expression of function or style?

    Thank you. We designed them that way on purpose. Because the Sea Island cotton is so unbelievably soft, we felt that without the knitted waistband the shirts would tend to lift up. The ribbing section gives a bit of heft to the bottom of the shirt, but is just as "stretchy" as the rest of the shirt body. Therefore it doesn't feel like most waistbands which are thicker, coarser, and cinch in. Also, it is thin enough to tuck in with ease for those who prefer to.

    I really like those blue on blue striped socks in the first picture.

    I really don't like the striped socks getting down with eachother later in the post. [​IMG]
