    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.

    Am I just not seeing this picture in perspective properly or are those shoes two different sizes?

    Wonky perspective from rushed photos. Sorry. They're both 10.5 B/D and both too narrow for my fat feet by the same degree [​IMG].

    I know this really isn't going to help you too much, but I picked up a Weatherill coat a couple weeks ago; very recent NWT, but made in China :( ...so they're definitely making things off the Row. I wasn't able to find much information online regarding pricing of the outsourced stuff. England -> New York -> China doesn't seem like a great path to be going down

    Six months ago today, I saw the picture on the left on a rescue site. It was a snow Bengal kitten who was blind in one eye. We had previously had a one-eyed cat (Gasparilla -- who was awesome), so I contacted the owner.
    That weekend, I brought Captain Jack home. He has been great.
    He looked like an old drunken cat, ready to fight, in that original picture. I'm glad we took a chance on him.

    Bought these APC jeans from an elderly person who was selling cheap jeans on the street. He knew quite a few things about the brand, it was weird and awesome.

    Never expected to see another snow bengal owner on here. Captain Jack looks like an awesome cat. This is Yeti.

    Yeti looks like he owns the place! If Captain Jack had not already been given an appropriate pirate name, I might have named him WhoDey. Bengalbert Humperdinck is another name that I like.

    I've seen some recent stuff sold on eBay as well that was made in China. Weird.

    I mean, this is full bespoke (and actually from 1986, not 1992 as I previously reported). And it is seriously incredible, I can't believe how nicely-made it is. Lined in silk and is this craaaaazy soft cashmere twill. I'm guessing on the content since there's no tag, but the only question would be 100% cashmere or is there some vicuna?

    Looks like the brand is no longer in existence as fast as I can tell. Website out of date, contact email bounces. Didn't try the phone since it was GB. I googled a bunch and it looks like the NYC tailor was merged with Zanghi and became Zanghi Weatherill, and after that I can't really tell what happened other than it's not open anymore.

    There's a Zanghi Weatherill piece on ebay right now that looks very nice but not on the level of the one I have: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Rare-Zanghi...nting-Suit-40S-Savile-Row-Styled/222367912162

    And I left like five suits from Zanghi Weatherill there since there seems to be no market for it and they were pretty dated looking.

    Spencer Hart, size 38 suit, unlined, lightly structured. Purchased at LA consignment shop

    Ok, so here's my case for this having been owned by Adam Levine.

    Tag says "Maroon 5."
    Tag says 03/12, from a period he was seen wearing a lot of Spencer Hart suits.
    His size. (6'0, 170 lbs according to the internet. I'm similarly built and fits me perfectly)
    Photographed for Men's Health in one that looks very similar (Not sure if mine would be that shiny if photographed with studio lights?)
    Details are very similar (one button, hidden cuff buttons, etc)

    What do you guys think? Maybe they just made a model called "Maroon 5" for their customers based on what they were selling Adam Levine at the time?

    He certainly thinks he owns the place, that's for sure. "WhyDey" is an appropriate name, though I'm a Steelers fan so I could never use it [​IMG]

    I got Yeti in Dayton actually. It's entirely possible that our cats are related haha.
