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.

    I live in Austin, TX.
    6'2 and 205lbs.
    34 to 36" Waist
    36" Length

    I don't wear suits often at all.

    I did buy a Haspel Seersucker for a summer wedding in New Orleans a year ago.
    My jacket size for that was a 44L. Waist was a 36.
    I sure did get alot of nice compliments on that suit.

    Time now for a funeral. I would need it by Sept 26th.
    And can spend $500. Maybe $600 if someone here talks me into it.
    Black or Charcol.

    Any ideas?

    I did run over to Nordstroms and try on a Joseph Abooud Signature Silver suit.
    They put me in a 42R which fit nice. Saleswomen said Abooud cuts are normally smaller and good for an athletic type cut. I do have wide type shoulders. That suit was $695.

    Thanks,
    Sean
