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,

    Couple things we can do for you. We can have you measure the vintage Sunspel for us to recreate (I can send you the 4 to 5 important points to measure OR our slim fit is fairly close to Casino Royale Specs) We can send one out to you to try on, then we can further make modifications to our slim fit based on your style preferences (ie taper sides, shorten front length, and yes we can adjust point spread on collar to a standard spread). Make sense? ping me and we can discuss offline jtang@vastrm.com

    Great set of questions:
    1) Our polos should shrink less than 1%. See image of our side by side washing tests with our fabrics (on right) and standard cotton. This was after 20 wash/dry cycles.

    But I would say, throwing any cotton knit into a hot wash cycle with high heat drying will pretty much destroy it. Cold water with gentle dry low heat should not effect our sizing.


    2) Current production is in Thailand. Thai factories, in general, produce some of the highest quality knit products in the world. They have high degree of skills in sourcing, handling, and sewing cotton knits. Our particular factory produces for Burberry, Hugo Boss, Fred Perry and a host of other luxury brands.

    3) Ping me for spread option, we are currently only offering this to our luxury retail partners and of course, the Style Forum family :)

    Hope this helps!
