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

    The reason I'd normally pass on this type of shirts is because they tend to conjure up that whole

    JP - did you "fix" the collars before shooting the pics? Seeing how soft the collar is not having any interlining, perhaps you need to spend time adjusting the collar over the tie to make sure it sits and rolls properly (i.e., the look could greatly improve if you stuck your fingers between your tie and the collars and "set" the collar correctly). Hopefully this is the issue rather than on the construction. Otherwise, it appears that in fact, the collars aren't working out (a la Vox and Manton's examples).
    No, I think the buttons are positioned such that the collar is intended to be flat against the inner collar when there is no tie and there is in fact a screw up.

    How might this be fixed? Move the buttons for the points up by a quarter inch? The lack of tie space may be a bit tougher.
