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,

    Got a few new tie patterns up and we rewrote the ordering section for our ties so that construction options and length options are more clear. The main reason for the rewrite was to give us some flexibility in the shopping cart system to do things like use promotional codes in case we wanna do something like... I dunno, set up a discount for forum folks without announcing it on our website. Â We have an opt-in email list built for such communications so for those interested this might be a good time to signup. Â Your info won't be sold, you can opt out whenever etcetera but before say... tomorrow evening would be a good time to sign up. We've moved a few prices down and a few up to standardize price as we move into retailers this fall. Â If you are on that email list, things will be more clear. Â (Note: Â A blatant hint precedes this sentence). We're moving into some other marketplaces, we're not forgetting our frineds as we do so. Thanks and apologies to those offended by the blatant capitalistic nature of this post. Here's some new ties.... Kinda Peachy: [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    If Larry Flynt were to get into the haberdashery business, I have no doubt that his promotional materials would look a great deal like this image. Â [​IMG]

    Montecristo... you are a bad, bad, bad and evil man.

    I know sex sells but was not aware of my guilt. I am going to tell your mother that you posted that.

    Well if it's any consolation I'll probably order that tie.... It looks like a real beauty. I'm trying to decide between that one and S27: [​IMG] P.S. Please don't tell Mom.

    Carlo,

    I tried the link on your website to sign up for email notification and it doesn't seem to work. Should I just contact you through directly through email?

    The signup seems to have worked for me. I only filled in the email address field.

    Confirmation email hasn't arrived, however.

    The orange tie is a beauty. Perhaps you could send one to Yuschenko and get some credit. would look sharp on the Dutch National Team as well.

    Ed - hmm.... could be a java or popup blocker issue?

    At least you didn't see me type address as adress in the signup form.

    Email only is fine - not collecting it for any reason other than to have a means of contacting our customers from time to time.

    I believe Montecristo is suggesting you're the Georgia O'Keefe of tie makers. [​IMG]

    Ed13 and Chuck,

    FYI, when I signed up for the mailing list the confirmation message ended up in my Bulk Mail (spam) folder, so those waiting for these messages should check their spam folders in addition to their in-boxes.

    Because of your post, I now feel very very dirty everytime I see Chuck's ties on his website - blatant tie porno. Panzer

    Hadn't noticed until your mention, but very Georgia O'Keefe. Good call.

    I couldn't sign up from the page I went to after the home page. so, I went back to the home page and signed up from there successfully.

    Great ties and shirts. I loved the gray herringbone but not in my size -- 16-36. Oh well. Anyone know the lengths of the standard and xlong ties at his site?

    Chuck, how long is your blatant hint in this post good? And how long is the discount code in the email to current customers good?
