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.

    BlazerSuits are by definition blue.

    I must say, as the soon-to-be owner of three, I wonder if I should ask that my screen name be changed to Iammafoofan.

    I think the K 50 also includes the tailor traveling from Italy to fit you.
    It also better include a reach around for that kind of dough[​IMG]

    What is Qiviuk? Is it a fiber or a brand or both?

    It is muskox. I had a sweater made of it and it is very nice. Makes nice scarves. This is the first I've heard of it being used for suit fabric. I wouldn't imagine it would last very long under normal wear but anyone paying $ 43K would probably not care.

    All grey flannel.

    And all able to be worn simultaneously, for a Russian doll effect.

    Great idea. Could get him up to a build that coordinates with his head.

    I fully expect to see Ed selling the suit in the B&S forum by early summer.

    It probably also covers theDiesel's rust-proof suit undercoating, or whatever it was he was babbling about.

    They're blue by definition because you made them up. You're not allowed to make fun of my shoes.

    I see this fabric made into scarves which can be purchased from street corner vendors in NYC.

    Yes, its very popular for scarves among women. There is a slight variance in quality from corner to corner....

    What do mean by variance; patterns, colors, fabric? Maybe you know something we don't.

    I'd love to get my hand on one of those. It'd make a hell of a conversation piece.

    "The timing was not fortunate for us," says Andrea Perrone, Brioni's co-chief executive.

    I'd call that an understatement.
