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.

    I love forest green tweeds. Donegal or herringbone makes no difference to me. Put them over almost any trouser and they look great. I've got one on my want list for next fall.

    I just had this jacket made for me at Lee Baron in Hong Kong using cloth I bought direct from the mill at Trefriw, Wales:

    Just curious, but where do you guys get these fine display models to show off your jackets? Are they on ebay? Do you hunt down men's stores about to close? I'd like one.

    Looks awesome! Is that specific fabric on their site? It didn't look like it was. I may request some swatches.

    Very nice! I'm not sure whether you look like the DA all defendants fear or the accountant no one wants looking into their cooked books but it is impressive.

    I don't think they show that cloth on their site. In fact, they only seem to show a very small selection of what they carry. I'm sure they could post you a swatch. I paid the same as the other tweeds on their site, £40/metre. It's worth noting that all their tweed is a very heavy gauge, certainly the heaviest I have out of three tweed jackets I own.

    It's just a small family-run business with I'd guess less than half a dozen employees. I've visited there a few times as it's close to where my wife's family live. I'm sure they'd be very amused to know that their cloth has found its way onto SF, via Belgium and Hong Kong :)

    Here's a close-up I just took, in case you want to email them about availability. There's a blue thread in there, which is why I chose a blue lining:

    besides Cords, flannels, (and jeans :D), what other trouser materials are appropriate pairing for a 15oz Harris Tweed SC ? Thanks
