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.

    Great looking jacket. Impeccable fit. Care to share details on the cloth?

    Could someone help me out with identifying this fabric?

    I can't put my finger on how this charcoal herringbone looks so much richer than most black/white herringbone weaves. What is it about it? How would I search for it? How hard would it be to find a similar fabric to have a jacket made from? Most black/white herringbones have a mid-grey look. Some look dark gray or charcoal but in a very flat way. This one looks almost like a black and white donegal except done in herringbone. Like black herringbone lightly dusted with snow. Is that what it is, a donegal/herringbone crossover?

    I would look under coatings - one such a W Bill 21531 (to 21534) comes from a set with a Donegal type fleck hough the picture of the swatch for the black and white one does not show it clearly.

    This looks like a decent deal on a sharp trench, if any of you fellow tweed lovers are already preparing for the greatest season of all.....tweed season.

    Fit is paramount, if it fits very well...keep it this way.
