Add CMT to the abbreviations page:

Cut, Make, Trim -- providing one's own material to a tailor for a suit or other item of clothing.

The wiki hosting site is changing its permissioning scheme on wikis in the next couple of weeks. Instead of a wiki-wide password (currently "brownfarmer"), you'll have to create a wiki login before you can edit entries. It's an easy extra step and it can't possibly drive traffic there down any further than its current level.

Added one fabric and a few paragraphs about all the vagaries of ordering from Jantzen. I've tried to fairly present the consensus view. http://styleforum.pbwiki.com/Jantzen

My favourite article on the wiki about shoe construction seems to rely on pictures hosted by aharris.calinet.com, which I can only presume is aharris's personal webspace. Those pictures are currently unavailable, is there any reason why they've not been uploaded directly through the wiki?

If Andrew is ok with it, those pictures should probably be directly uploaded to the wiki. Traffic statistics are only available for paid wikis, so I can't tell how many people are accessing it, but I doubt it is a very large number. It might not be worth the effort.

Does anyone have any thoughts on starting a men's clothing Wikia wiki? Personally, after editing Wikipedia I find PBWiki painful to use compared to MediaWiki. The big problem with Wikia is that the wikis are necessarily democratic: although we could turn StyleForum's benevolent dictators into Administrators, Wikia oversight requires them to represent the populous. Maybe that wouldn't be such a big change to how things are working now, or maybe we would be quickly overrun by the GQ hordes? Do you think it could work? Would you contribute more than you do to current wiki? Do you think the right kind of people from the rest of the Net would contribute? Do you think it would be possible to win out against the idiots and vandals?
