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.

    What are the opinions of the members on the angle of the seam where the lapel meets the collar on a peak lapel?  Should the imaginary line which continues from the seam cross at the shoulder seam, above or below?  I've seen all three stances, but I think very slightly above the shoulder looks best.

    I think the same logic would apply to a notched lapel, except one would consider the line bisecting the notch.

    I've noticed that military jackets tend to have the angle set closer to parallel to the floor. (Need to stop watching JAG.)

    I'd go for a notch that points right at the top of the sleevehead.
