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.

    Cheers,

    Poorsod: this is great content. Thanks for this. Do we know the date of that A&S jacket? Do we know the cutter?

    I believe it is circa 2010 by Hitchcock

    I have to admit I like the untouched photoshop one best, the third one just looks sterile to me. I'd like better cutting of the check on the first one though.

    Really? Even with those lines running away from each other? I'm glad we've got A&S in the thread but I'm struggling with the jacket.

    I would ask for a redo.

    I don't like the how the check is done either.

    You guys should read the whole thread for old SF glory. The best comments include Despos' technical analysis of the A&S coat.

    Standard Conservative Business Dress. Most folks seem to wear suits because they have to..Folks higher up on the food chain gravitate toward higher quality but still CBD. Fitter folks seem to prefer Canali and Zegna while the beefier go for BBGF. Just my two cents and I could be completely missing the mark.

    There's an English-trained tailor with his own well-regarded shop here doing bespoke. I believe his suits are around $5k each, Certainly there is a class of super-rich folks that may be into SV.

    He's not able to charge that price.

    I think you referenced DC in earlier posts. Talking about Field English Custom Tailoring? What do his bespoke suits run now?
