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,

    What's the consensus on Martin Greenfield suits? I picked one up and it has some interesting details - the fabric is sewn on the underside of the pocket flaps.

    So baller, fits like a glove.

    I'd just buy your size instead of sizing up to accommodate layers. The makers will realize that people are likely to wear sweaters underneath their coats.

    Huh, I remember this back when we used to beat brand new 501s in the sea with rocks. With the same logic you should have added tennis balls or something.

    Was it a BB? Might just be that particular maker or the cut. I wear a 42, and most of the 42 coats I've tried on have actually been a little big on me. Or, maybe you're just a 40. :)

    RL script + black label makes me think fake, but my knowledge on spotting RL fakes is weak.

    Martin greenfield is awesome. I have a Freeman's Sporting Club by Martin greenfield Harris Tweed, it's my best coat

    Nah it wasn't a BB. I honestly don't even know the brand. It looked nice and kinda fit, but mostly my 'real' winter coat is starting to look shabby and it's time to get something warmer and more professional looking for this boston winter.
