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.

    I listed and sold all of the Brioni pieces I found for a nice profit, and so I was finally gonna list the Tincati suit that I found with them on the SF marketplace thing. From what I've read Tincati is supposed to be on par with Brioni and Kiton, but the name recognition is a lot lower so I thought people on SF would appreciate the construction, hand-work etc. Started taking pictures, and I was astonished at just how much hand-work was evident in the suit...until I saw this.

    That's the Sanford. The Strand is an oxford. You should re-check the listing and see if the pictures match. If you were wanting the Strand then you received the wrong shoe. That said, I have a pair of Sanfords in walnut and love them. Great shoe!

    The jacket is just a tad long for my taste but over all, this is a solid fit!

    Awesome Oxxford tuxedo (?) jacket. One button. Notch lapel. Interesting Weave. Fits me.

    (dark spot in bottom left of 2nd photo is from my iphone camera, not on the jacket)

    Thanks man. 8 of them are RLPL. But I am not opposed to selling the Boss either even though they are not "SF approved." They still sell. I also cross my fingers that at least one of them is Made in Italy like the listing states. Last summer I had a couple of BINs on Boss Made in Italy shirts, one for, I believe $65 or so.

    Oh yeah, and Brian, that is an excellent fit!

    Nice! I'm not too proud to pick up high-end orphans. I've sold a bunch of Canali and Oxxford orphans.

    Out of 2.5k RL sport coats listed over the past month only 605 sold with yours getting the highest price. Well Done :slayer: but a rare feat to replicate consistently.
