    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've been to thrift stores for 4 months now, and still nothing serviceable in the tweed department :(

    So this might sound silly to everyone here. But I just discovered Tweed and I am in love with the material.

    I have been looking all over for a nice pair of Tweed or simply wool suspenders. I did find a few at $150 but was looking to spend no more than $100. I suppose I could make my own, but I still have a lot to learn about style before I attempt something like that.

    Any of you fine gents can recommend some tweed suspenders leather attachements to buttons?

    These could of worked but I don't like the adjustment style.

    I like this from Alexander Olch for something fun

    So far, Albert Thurston seems to be my best bet simply to obtain a pair. The cost though. :(

    Albert Thurston cost like 45-50 pounds on ebay for me, so it shouldn't cost that much. I got a pair for that much in dugdale tweed.

    Hi Gents,

    I am looking for a modern tweed gilet - I realize that is a bit of a contradiction. I really like the collared ones with herringbone tweed.

    I found some I like at Guillotine England but wanted to see if there are other good ones available. I cant seem to post pictures - apologies as my laptop doesnt seem to grab the pictures. But here is the link:

    Any other suggestions appreciated.

    These are called a Crossbow and you can buy them at Buck and Hare online. If you have an online image you want to find the source of, just right click and choose "search image on google" and it will show original source : )
