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.

    What do you call the seam at the hem of jeans? It looks like a hammered finish. If I were to shorten the legs, can the finish be done on the new seam?

    I believe you can ask your tailor to save the original hem/bottom when they're shortening jeans. As for what it's called, no idea.

    it's just a flat-felled seam that is chainstitched, no??? if you just have it chainstitched after surgery, the roping effect should return after a wash...

    the 45rpm store in NYC have union-specials, i do believe.

    resist the frankenhem (aka california, aka original) if at all possible.

    better yet, cuff or stack.
