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,

    I could never pull off what Butler did! I'm doing flap pockets and ticket pocket and a straight vest with no lapels. That's just how I roll.

    Steven has done a great job on that suit Butler! I love that cloth as well, I think I remember seeing it on our Johnson's bunch...I also saw a gentleman on the tv wearing a suit with the same cloth. Bold choice but a great one!

    Best,

    Thanks gentelmen - glad you like it - so do I :) :cheers:

    Apart from fit etc. i'm especially impressed with SH's pattern matching:

    Arm to coat - coat to waistcoat - waistcoat to waistcoat lapels - waistcoat to trousers - coat to trousers

    Yes, well-- that just makes you an easier target for marksmen in the snow. Be careful!

    I had the good fortune to be able to join Butler for his fitting with Steven Hitchcock. I really liked the relationship they have, lots of back and forth between them that obviously provides great results!
    There are a few more photos over on my Tumblr .

    Nice. Is that the blue spot effect? I'm considering if I do another Minnis run making it a medium - dark gray version of that style.

    No, it's the suit that you remember. I hadn't posted a photo of it with its vest, and since I was wearing it today, I thought that that I would show it.

    Did you see my note about the Lumb's in the other thread?

    Yeah. The Lumbs is from Lesser/Harrisons? Is it durable? Is it fancy priced? I'll have a look at it at the tailors.

    Also, I've seen a bunch of lapeled vests from Steed recently. Is this your preference or his?

    No, it's one of the ones that T&L sell themselves.

    I'll send you a PM.

    Mine. I've gotten step lapel SB and roll lapel DB vests, Edwin does a great job with both styles.

    No, it's a dogtooth that I don't think Minnis seems to carry anymore.
