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.

    Great thread!

    Thanks for starting this.

    Any thoughts on overcoats by Pringle of Scotland?

    There are some nice looking ones on sale online and I would love to hear a view on quality, warmth, durability.... (& of course style)

    Thanks

    I was fortunate enough to spend some time with Mo Azam, the son of Mohammad Azam, who owns Grenfell, at their booth at the MRket trade show a few weeks ago here in NYC. Some really great stuff on display - classic overcoats of Grenfell cloth abounded, but some of their streetwear stuff for the Japanese market was just amazing!

    It's really weird that the sleeve seam on that Caruso runs down the outside of the sleeve.

    ^ Didn't notice that until you pointed it out. In general, how much are bespoke overcoats if you source the fabric yourself?

    Hey Gents,

    I am thinking of getting this overcoat. I like the style - just with it was a bit darker/charcoal and wanted to hear peoples' views. Seems like it could be a good 10 year+ overcoat and warm.

    I apologize for the small images - is there any way to save these images bigger?! They dont expand well....

    Yeah, absolutely no way to give any advice based on those microscopic images.

    I really like that as a casual coat. Is it purchasable?

    This is a great covert coat from Steed.

    Also, Michael Alden republished his videos showcasing the beautiful Donegal Polo coat he had made. Both were taken down last year, but now seem to be up again. Really handsome stuff.

    I think it was the original poster who posted a close-up of the following BB polo coat:

    [​IMG]

    It's BB's new version of BB's old standby polo coat and to my eye it seems slightly too short, although the older version was arguably too long (almost a floor-sweeper). Is anyone familiar with the older versus new BB polo coats?

    ^If the common german troops in WWII had had something as warm as those coats looks to be, Stalingrad and the war could have had a different outcome. :teach:
