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,

    And such is my luck. It was pouring when I left this morning and gloomy the whole time I was there.

    mid 70's with sun.. turned out to be a great day.

    I agree with the other poster regarding the Andover location store. I went by there a couple of months ago and they were very friendly and answered all my dumb questions.

    Buy anything?
    I visited lots of stores but left empty-handed except for an RL argyle cotton/cashmere sweater vest and an RL madras bd shirt from Lord & Taylor on deep discount. I was surprised that nothing in Louis Boston, RL, BB, Saks and other stores appealed to me enough to make a purchase. It was nice to visit the shops nonetheless.

    i've been making the rounds of the various "high-end" stores in boston and there's definitely a mentalityof "who will blink first" in regards to summer sales. unfortunately for most of these stores, saks is fairly levered and desperate to keep monthly same-store-sales up, so they're just ripping price points down w/ basically 30% off everything. mind boggling. saks in copley wasn't exactly crowded, but in comparison neiman and barney's were a ghost town. i saw a theory blazer i liked at barney's, found the exact same one at SFA for about 40% cheaper ...

    meanwhile, is it just boston or does hugo boss look desperate? their retail locations in copley/natick are just massively discounted and their merchandise dominates the sales racks at most of the dept. stores. looks like their private equity owners got ambitious and haven't right-sized inventory yet. i understand their stuff isn't up to snuff for the purists here, but their quality and fit are fairly good when marked down by 75%.

    Probably not the best place to write this especially since I hate when people advert themselves but I'm a bespoke tailor originally from Boston and trained in Rome Italy... I'll be in Boston during the first week of November for a few clients of mine and thought maybe some of you guys could be interested. You can find the link to my website on my profile or send me a private message. Cheers.
