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

    I stopped by C21 today for the first time in a while. They had an interesting variety of top names:

    -Brioni: dress shirts (neck sizes 16 and up; these are hidden away in the upstairs mezzanine and not displayed in the main shirt area downstairs)
    -Isaia: shirts and suits (I believe these are the real Isaia Napoli line, and not the lower priced ones)
    -Borrelli: sweaters, long sleeve cashmere polo shirts, blazers, a few suits, dress shirts (some of these even have the "Made for Neiman Marcus by Borrelli" tag on them)
    -Zegna: as always, tons of shirts and ties
    -Usual selection of Gucci, Versace, DG, J Lindberg, Armani casual/trendy wear

    Edit: Was tempted to pickoff some of the brioni, borrelli pieces for ebay resale; however, while I thought prices were fair (BWT Brioni @ $149, Isaia $2,500-3,000 for $999), they weren't low enough to make a good profit.

    Also, I believe they are doing a no sales tax special.

    I believe that yesterday was the last day of the sales tax holiday (and even during the previous week, it only applies to items less than $100 or $110).

    Sorry Fellahs...Its OVAH. Â Not that under 110 is meaningful for the most part. Â Its not aimed at luxury buyers. Â It IS aimed at back to school clothing... Anyone for Attolini uniforms? http://www.nyc.gov/html/dof/html/salestax.html The City and State of New York are providing shoppers with a week of sales tax-free shopping from August 31st through September 6th, 2004. Purchases of clothing and footwear (and items used to make and repair them) costing less than $110 are exempt from New York's 8.625% sales tax during this period

    Actually, Century 21 applied the no sales tax to all items - not just capped at $110.00. (A hidden discount.)
