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 was walking around Zurich last summer and pointed out a blazer on sale in the E. Zegna store, to which a local friend responded that blazers/sportcoats with pants are considered rather distasteful in Switzerland, and that suits are much prefered.

    Your take on this?

    i'm in switzerland several times a year and i notice that for the most part, men don't wear blazers/sportscoats, it's suits or something else

    i don't think it's distasteful, i just think the swiss dress differently than north americans

    To quote JoeG again, I remember him saying that the Swiss are an extremely conservative bunch and suits are almost the norm.
