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,

    Yeah, Zegna and Isaia. Think their Oxxford is MTM only now. None of the stuff I mentioned above.

    Hmmm, I've been hearing people with rivets popping off of their Gustin. I've yet to experience that but I think having a pair or 2 of their stuff is always good for every day wear but I'm at the point where I'm going to upgrade to higher tier denimz.

    Dude, when we went to LA and hit up a few thrift stores this was the case 90% of the time! *FU face

    Totes!! I actually went to this store a few months ago and it's much better than the Quebec store (this one is closing too, I'll hit it in January - the best stuff they have is Hugo Boss, Burberry and Zegna Sport lool). Dibs on the 56L :)

    Thanks bro!

    The worst thing? The shoulders fit (and the rest needs some work but whatever) [​IMG] Wondering if it needs to go back on the bay... or to my tailor.

    How often will you wear a brown tux? If the answer is often, I would keep it. If it's a once every couple years thing, I wouldn't.

    There was not a single mark or label or stamp anywhere on them. :(

    FTFY. But yeah, more seriously, I would only wear a tux once or twice a year ^^ I have some formal TF black tuxedo pants though, I wonder if they would pair easily with a brown jacket

    I'm exactly the same. My snap-t is the most frequently worn item in my wardrobe.

    You guys are right. Years ago I needed a blazer and tried on Armani because its marketed as high end that 99% of people know. The sales guy, who is always in a suit and always had a friendly chat when I walked past suits to fragrances or shoes, he asked me to try on a Canali before deciding. The Canali felt better, but the Armani looked more slim. I guess those are 2 reasons, it has a more slim athletic cut and women respond to Armani in a positive way if they ask what brand it is, they don't know the name Canali. I think Canali feels like they use better wool than Armani. I like Canali a lot and the more I learn the less I care about labels.

    BTW, I went to TJ Maxx today and what was a great deal is now Never At That Price! I saw a beautiful cashmere RL priced $149.00 sale price. I'll find it one day for $10 or less! I already found a 100% silk RL sweater that will be perfect for casual spring days that are chilly. If I can find silk RL, I will find cashmere RL!!

    I love this thread.

    Picked up two pieces by this guy a while ago for $8.29 each - took me a while to flip them over, see the signatures, then decipher the name.

    Thanks Cat. No rank order implied with my list. Should probably also throw wine in there somewhere too.
