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.

    Is there any online source where I could find the Smiths books to look at?

    I have a thick twill sportcoat like that that belonged to my grandfather as a young man. Two, actually. He must have liked them.

    I wouldn't have considered the cloth a suiting -- was it commonly used for that?

    I really like that twill, @Slewfoot.

    Don't know if I'll stand by this opinion later, but I've been toying with the idea of getting a maremmana jacket made at some point. If the weight was right, I can imagine it being good for that type of project, even though the style seems to be mostly made with corduroy.

    Milstil and Archival Clothing had something on the jacket a while ago, although the second blog has apparently taken the post down. My colleague Jesse at Put This On "reblogged" it once though.

    Anyway, pictures:

    As aside, I agree the gorge on that jacket is a bit high. Nice looking piece, but would be made nicer, IMO, if the gorge was lowered an inch.

    Wear it buttoned and it's like the jacket is giving the finger.

    Thanks for this. Have been planning to get a midweight, mid-gray sharkskin. I hope they still make it.

    Thanks for the replies. I did a bit of google searching and I think that Sharkskin would be a good choice. :slayer:

    I just ordered something with Harrisons Fine Classics 47353. Might be too twill-y for you but I quite liked the sample.

    I think the 13oz book is standard fare, the 16oz is the one that is hard to come by.

    Did this end up happening? I was hoping to get in on it, but never heard anything.
    The -12 degrees f it was this morning has me dreaming of summer shirting.

    There wasn't enough interest last time. If people are interested, I'd be happy to organize an order (no profit on my part). I wouldn't mind a couple shirt lengths.

    Note, the bleeding madras isn't available. Only the non-bleeding stuff.

    Summer shirt time coming up right? I could be persuaded to pick up a few shirt lengths.

    At the narrow widths they sell, you're looking at about 10 shirts maximum from 30 meters. At $150 for an order that would be $15/shirt if you amortize it fully, or $30 if you only make 5.
