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,

    No, it's actually a classic New England model (i.e. with flap pockets and center vent - J. Press has been making such a model for over 50 years - my guess is that this is the "American Trad" version of the traditional ventless/besom welt pocket model) but cut extremely slim (as opposed to the Ivy League boxy,) with slim lapels, and made of wool voile instead of a worsted.) Sort of an Italian take on classic Americana, which actually I find refreshing.

    I was wearing a shawl collar DJ by Ede & Ravenscroft this past weekend for a ball in St. Andrews. I must admit for a supposed 'rental' it was certainly the nicest ever... rivaling the quality of those I own. A beautiful cut and styling...

    I have never been fond of shawl collars, but now I will definitely purchase one for a change from peak lapel sb.

    I own a double-breasted satin peak lapel in black from Ralph Lauren.
