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.

    What's the back rise on a size 34 Panta?

    I find about 17 to 17.25 works best.

    I'm sure that would work. Weight is not listed on the site. Heavy stuff

    Is the website representative of the true color of the fabric?
    thanks

    I can see the pictures. I'm asking if the colors in the flesh are the same as the website. A picture doesn't answer the question.

    Here is the H&S Force 10 stuff. Its calvary twills in 11 and 13 oz weights along with some hopsacks and gabardines. The 13oz calvary twills make up sick pants:

    This is the Zegna calvary twill that I have spare of, its about 17-18oz, they don't make this anymore. Its great stuff. Ignore my 6 years old's luigi.

    For those looking for a bold summer jacket, H&S just came out with a summer weight 100% merino wool with "AquArret", its stain/water/static resistant. Its a dry finish and drapes nicely:

    Had a fitting for a pair of trousers in this cloth (the mid grey on the right) the other day. Really good stuff.

    Which one did you get @mafoofan. I have the original incarnation of 604 and tried to get 600 but it had already run out and then the company was done.
