    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.

    Has anybody tried "the method" on a kiton shirt? I'm kind of worried the little red dot on the tag will bleed out. Thanks in advance.

    I asked what they said on the bottom, "Custom Grade Made in England" between that and the heel pattern, I'm about 95% sure they are Church's. I'm guessing you pull back the insole insert and that's what you will find.

    How bad is it? When I have small spots or just collar staining that isn't too bad, I just apply a water/Oxy paste and let it sit for a couple of hours. Launder normally after that. I've had good results and definitely cuts the time down. Probably much less likely for the tag to bleed if you're just spot treating.

    I've never had any issues (ie color loss) using the "method", but I also was never trying to remove a red dot.

    My jaw dropped too. It was funny because the GF was nagging me when I first showed her and saying I don't need a tux etc etc but I promised I wouldn't buy it for too much and when it ended I had a giant grin on my face and showed her the price - all she said was "I still don't think you need it"

    BTW to everyone, the measurements are close for me but not spot on, if it doesn't work I'll pass it along at cost so let me know if there's anyone who wants next dibs.

    Guys, I'm looking for suggestions on where to look for any of the following shoes in an 8.5. RL website is sold out and I really like the shoes.

    Newent Chelsea or Burnished boot in black: http://www.ralphlauren.com/product/index.jsp?productId=13315472

    Newent jodhpur. http://www.ralphlauren.com/product/index.jsp?productId=23471206

    No luck finding them anywhere and I guess the season's over so they're going to release new ones next year. Blah sucks that I missed them at that price. Oh well...

    Hopefully someone else can get a deal for what's available!
