    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.

    You did not just find another jacket with pants pockets sewn on, did you?



    I would have been stunned. Perhaps it's meant to be a double wrap belt. I could almost make that go around me twice!



    Someone's upset about needing a large belt?

    Agreed on buying really big items. I found a XXXXL PRL shirt once and posted it to eBay out of curiosity. The amount of messages I got about it was crazy. Also, when the guy who won got the shirt, he sent me a message about how great it was to get a quality clothing item in his size and thanked me over and over again. It felt pretty good and made me think about how awful it would be to shop for clothes, knowing that you're never really going to find much. I pick up big sizes every time I find something even remotely decent now.

    Don't forgat about the Egyptian hieroglyphs... What's more than a trifecta, then? :)

    (Also, if I remember correctly, there was and Abercrombi & Fitch branded item mentioned earlier in the thread. And if my memory serves me well, that used to be their genuine brand name for the German market... Could somebody verify?)

    that's actually a tailor in Bangkok and one of the only two valid ones in the city. What he makes isn't bad and he knows his stuff. Him and Narin Couture are the only ones that vaguely know how to cut in Bangkok.

    Don't purchase from this seller ever...

    Funny story about my RLPL suit I bought from him....

    I won the auction for £35 posted, paid for it the minute I won it. On boxing day, mind you. He didn't reply to me for 3 days saying he's away... granted its Christmas. Message after message requesting him to send it. Excuse after excuse...

    Finally got a reply saying he accidentally sent it to Norway! [​IMG]He got the suit back and it arrived 3 weeks after I bought it. Its now in at the tailor's.
    He's an AWFUL seller!
