1. Hi. We moved systems, and because it was impossible to achieve feature parity between the systems, we opted to archive the old B&S threads but allow users to read them so that they can put them into our new B&S system.

    There is a support thread if you have any issues.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    The jacket's available free of charge to the first forum member from the U.S. or Canada who PMs me; I'll even spring for shipping. The jacket must be for your use, and you must agree not to sell it on eBay or elsewhere.

    Great coat. It reminds me of the observation that true classic wear is timeless. I bet the coat is quite old. Is Gimbel's still in business? It brings back memories. Many, many, years ago I lived in NYC and my family used to shop at Macy's. And if we had the time we would always go to Gimbel's, which I seem to remember was across the street. Does Macy's still have the Flagship 34th St. store?

    Do any of you remember Gimbel's and where it was exactly?

    Tax Mac is the winner. Congrats. It's a lovely coat and deserves a good home.

    Gimbel's has been gone for decades. Their building is now an urban mall.

    Macy's still rules 34th St.
