1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    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.

    Clearly, the correct answer is Bedford and Norfolk. In earth tones. What am I thinking? I'll probably have to get involved in trafficking to afford such a thing.

    That is truth. People will have to die for me to afford some of this stuff at this point.

    Has anyone tried to board a plane with this buckle? It looks vaguely sharp and dangerous.

    The straps on the new belts looks like they're too narrow for the buckle. On the brown originals, the straps look like they fit perfectly.

    Hmm, I don't think any difference is noticeable IRL. Mainly, the strap is a bit looser because it's snapped instead of tightly sewn, so it is able to slide down a bit in the pic - but when worn it looks the same.

    Ah.

    The removable hardware does seem like a big advantage, especially if you wanted to polish the brass buckle.

    j. is correct about the buckle being able to slide more because it has snaps rather than being sewn down. And the buckle actually fits the belt. What you see in the pic is an optical illusion because the release is not down the entire way. I just checked now...

    Hmmm... Engineered Garments for Styleforum Bedford jacket. I like it. Not saying that this will happen, but if it did happen, how many of you would commit to one

    I already have a Bedford but would most likely buy another one if it was different...
    edit: I would be interested in any Engineered Garments jacket.

    okay okay. I've claimed my belt finally... A visitor to my home got me a nasty virus and I couldn't go online for ages.

    Said person is tall and blonde though, so I wasn't too mad over it...


    edit: a COMPUTER virus

    Sorry... belts are all gone. Gary Drinkwater (www.drinkwaterscambridge.com) does have some belts in size 30. In fact, I think he has a nearly full size run of the usual belts.

    LA Guy, sorry I'm a bit confused with your last post. Can you order quick release belts from that website? or do you know any other brands/sites to order a quick release belt like the EG one? thanks
