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,

    Fok on behalf of the entire Styleforum team

    We are operating on a travelling tailor basis to start with to keep costs low and pass savings on. Working on a website to allow fitted clients the ability to reorder online as well. Ultimately we want to be great value and offer ease and convenience

    I have many cardigans from Herringbone. Once upon a time knitwear was made for them by Loro Piana. Sadly, those days are likely gone but you can occasionally find stuff from this era at the warehouse sales. Their newer batch of cardigans are still good on sale.

    I have some brand new Loro Piana cashmere sweaters to sell in watermelon and pink hues, size M - if anyone's keen.

    It was productive, but hardly re-wrote any rules.

    Simple navy cloth, super 120 (I think, might have been 100).

    That's about it. I'm not a stickler for extreme details, so I didn't specify particular cuff width or lapel length or anything persnickety.

    Sorry to be a pest - having a sporadic trip to Sydney tomorrow - can anyone tell me a few places where I can get sized up for a pair of loakes?
