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.

    I inquired about this same issue at Charvet(Paris) and was told that they do not make a pre-tied tie and that the ties were tied for display purposes only. The saleslady then took a tie from the rack and untied it.

    Perhaps they only make them for the US market.

    I couldn't find any examples now on eBay but did find another reference to them at NM in an earlier SF post: http://www.styleforum.net/showpost.p...00&postcount=6

    Bowties are the best. They remind me of Roy Cohn at Studio 54, sulking or Kinsey, discussing sex. They're so disingenuous, and perverse in their overt conservatism.[​IMG]

    I made a call to Charvet and got the lowdown on their bow ties. It seems that Charvet makes something of a hybrid in that their ties are self-tie but with a clasp( in the back where the length is adjusted)which facilitates its use without having to tie/untie the bow.

    Eh... that's pretty much the same as leaving a necktie tied and just sliding it on every day.
