    Greetings. Anybody know if something has happened to SB? Their website went down weekend before last, then came back up early part of last week, but the ‘Outlet’ page was empty. I’ve tried emailing, using their contact page and phoning. All no reply. I know that Selvedge run thing was on last week, but somebody must be manning the phone.
    So. Here’s my theories, they’ve gone bust, they’ve been hacked or this is devine intervention telling me I should look at Aero’s sale pages.
    Any enlightenment from the FL?

    It’s working now - Not that I ever go there but I was curious when I read your post.

    Yeah the lights are on, but nobody’s home. The outlet page is empty and emails & phone unanswered.

    Is it empty or full of jackets? It’s still blank for me. Either way still no email or phone response. Could always drive up there an knock on the door. 800 mile round trip though!

    You're not far from Aero - Gala's just up the road. I suspect skipping SB and going straight to them will save you a bit of petrol...

    I like the Statesman. I need no other jackets, but if I did...

    I'd ask Aero if they could bung a shawl collar on a Cheyenne and size down.

    They won't! I tried to do the same with a Maxwell. No dice.

    Damn, man. It's like they're driving me into Simmon's Bilt's treacherous embrace. And you just know that SB's going to skive, too.

    All joking aside, though, they did make me an excellent custom jacket a few years ago.

    Upload was too large! Anyway it was A0793 which looks like it’s gone. Blattwerk roadster. I liked the battered leather. Have to speak to Aero about a new jacket
    Apologies if I’m repeating myself. I seem to be having trouble send these posts as well. however I still have had a reply from them which seems odd
    thanks all for your responses.

    They must have changed image size limits here since I can't really upload any photos lately. My photo editor can't seem to size small enough now. Before it was no problem.

    This whole thread seems unnecessary. OP experiences a brief glitch with the website, and posts here alleging that SB has either been hacked or gone out of business, neither of which is fact. In light of the usual bad publicity for SB that gets generated by this forum whenever they're brought up, perhaps the site administrators should shut this down before it gets out of hand.

    Maybe somebody stole all the jacket to copy them? ;)
