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,

    [​IMG] I have a friend who prides himself on that his jacket has "custom made for et.etc." in his jacket.

    Keep in mind he is only paying about $1000 or less for a suit. The materials look quite poor and the construction seems to be machine made entirely, and probably fused. I can defintitely say the shirts are of very cheap material as the collar looks thin and horrid. The fit is fairly precise though, so there are points for this.

    I used to get suits in this range this from King's image in Indy (before I had a clue), and realize now the suits were entirely machine made and of average quality at best.

    ***So how much does it cost to get this label in your jacket? And does it give you bragging rights?

    i think I understand your question. That is a label that most tailors, from $300/suit Indian tailors to $4000/suit guys put in their suits. It means nothing.

    You can get those labels for a few bucks each in small quantities. I'm gonna order some and have the alterations guy at the cleaners put them into Merona suit separates from Target. Instant custom clothing.

    I agree; this is not a sign of a quality garment, nor a lack thereof. Working buttonholes are more appropriate than such tags.
