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,

    If that were to be made in alligator or crocodile leather with peak lapels, then hell yeah.

    Changeable buttons - that sounds interesting. Is that a form of button where you can attach different facings depending on the occasion?

    I've seen snap on buttons but I'm talking about a large face button with a smaller button behind it by 1/4" or so. both sides of the jacket would have button holes, but the side to be concealed would have the smaller button holes.

    Sorry, what are the last two Bs in this instance? [​IMG]

    Double Breasted Blue Blazer

    I guess I could have really confused you and posted DBBBBB. Which, of course, is a Double Breasted Blue Blazer from Brooks Brothers [​IMG]

    Is NSM making it for you? If so, the barchetta ain't bad.

    Yes. They will be here this coming weekend.

    I'm thinking something like this.

    Lovely, although the stitching on the chest pocket seems a little excessive.

    Pardon my ig; do they baste the pockets shut?

    godof, having seen it both ways now, I think I would prefer a welted chest pocket. Is that the term?

    Lovely blue color, if the image is ~true.

    If it's heavy weight, I kinda like those patch pockets with the pleat through the center.
