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.

    ^ Added what is hopefully a better picture after tracking the thing down on the Harrison's website.

    I have something similar made up as a DB suit with patch pockets. It's nice enough but I'm not sure when to wear it :)

    I actually got a length of H&S flannel in this colour.

    I will say it is an excellent wintery causal suiting but can't be used as separates...

    Thanks. I kind of suspected it would just be a casual suit and not that versatile, just a fun piece to have now that I have my core staples covered. I have enough other odd jackets that I wouldn't worry too much about needing to be able to use the thing for separates.

    This might be a stupid question, but how do you order that Fresco?

    Anyone know of any good alterations tailors in Brooklyn? Preferably Park Slope? A friend is asking.

    Thanks!

    Ercoles does alterations, but he's a bit pricey, much better work though, if its an expensive OTR garment, I would take it there

    I've used them for Zegna and Corneliani suits and was very pleased.

    Thanks guys! And how about someone able to make a bespoke vest with a turnaround time of 3 weeks including a fitting? Ercole's? Anyone else?

    Three weeks is tight, but I'd say Ercoles again. If anyone can do it, they can.

    Wedding attire disaster that needs sorting out?

    For the same cost and less time, albeit a tad more inconvenience, one might fly to Hong Kong.

    Really? Would anyone ever fly to HK to get a vest made?

    Depends on how badly one needs fast service. I make no judgments.

    There used to be Savile Row shops that would promise entire suits in one week. No big deal if you have a spot in the queue.
