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.

    Cheers,

    The full tweed suit...not the best photograph, but can see the shaping of the silhouette:

    The coat worn as an odd jacket, with Kiton RTW trousers:

    Vox - is this the Steed house cut, or did you have significant input? Thanks.

    This is one of two basic SB silhouettes that reflects seven years of working with Edwin. So, you might say that I had a lot of input. The jacket has both a front and underarm dart, but no sidebodies (so, still well within the general A&S-style cut), the other has only the underarm dart. There will be examples of both in stuff I have in the works, which I will post when they arrive.

    I have a SB nailhead that I should photograph and post here as well...it shows the most current iteration of the more closely fitted of the two silhouettes that he and I are using for me.

    Of course not.

    I also have a bunch of new stuff to post once I get around to photographing it.

    So, yachtie, let's see the Moonbeam.

    Didn't you promise the Internet a Swiss Army Suit in January?

    I have a fitting in January, so the Internet will have to continue to slumber in its coffin before the sun finally goes down.

    That made up really sweet, Y. Love, love the three patch and the big lapels.

    I'll refrain from asking you to shorten your shirtcuffs because I know that you wouldn't agree.[​IMG]

    Does anyone know if Sunbeam is a myth or reality?

    Fantastic fit, Yachtie. The details are just weird enough to be right.

    I know yachtie has a look and he's settled on it, but I'm not convinced that DBs are really the best cut for that body. Just sayin.

    You should tread lightly on this subject, Mr. Dad Jeans.
