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 thought block writing for Ralph Lauren was C&J, but for Polo Ralph Lauren it had to say "bench made in England" to be C&J?

    I guess this is what happens when you ask your dry cleaning lady to shorten the sleeves of your nice MTM surgeon cuff suit, she just gave up half way XD

    Walked into the store as these were hitting the floor, single donor. Bought it all so they offered half off for doing so. To bad the shoes are to narrow :(

    What do you guys think of the newer Chester Barrie stuff? I don't mean the "Chester by" stuff, but the Chester Barrie Saville Row (Black Label). They don't provide any information on where it's made, and it doesn't say half/full canvass. This leads me to believe that it's fused and made in China. Could someone confirm?

    Any thoughts on these? I have a friend who just got a bunch of Pants from his Father-in law from a local men's shop. The materials and make seem very good, but I wasn't sure of the quality.

    I posted this in the buy sell thread but figured it might work here too.

    I am looking for three blazers / sportcoats nice good quality canvassed or half canvasses.

    Specs:
    2 button or 3/2 Roll Sack
    42 R
    25” sleeve from Shoulder seam to cuff end
    Center or dual vent


    Navy ¼ lined 4 season wool (something nice) with brass or gold buttons
    Navy Flannel with brass or gold buttons
    Light tan pattern with blue windowpane 4 season wool (to wear with navy dress pants and dark nice jeans)

    I am willing to pay fair resell market or lower. I have looked all over ebay with no avail.

    Let me know what you have.
