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.

    My opinion is that not everyone can pull off thoe DB style and most guys even my friends/coworkers just prefer the simplicity of a two button single-breasted suit.

    My opinion is that DBs make everyone look like gangsters from the 30s. Even my friends and co-workers agree with me on this (fyi - Despos is not a friend).

    Just left a meeting with a guy who wears db suits exclusively. Unfortunately, he rarely keeps the jackets buttoned which doesn't look good.

    I wear a lot of DBs.

    I also wear a lot of SBs.

    I guess, basically, I wear a lot.

    DBs give a chance for some real stylin'.

    Although the above is RTW Armani from the 80's, I think it better portray [even with lesser fit] DB stylin' than the bespoke Liverano below . . .

    Nice stuff Butler, though I really wish you hadn't opted for the contrasting lapel holes on the Rubi.

    Thanks!
    Any reason you suppose why that fold seems uncommon (at least from my limited experience)?

    I was just kidding! Jokingly referred it to as such because it looked like a mountain peak.

    It doesn't appear to be anything fancy - just a square folded to a peak. I imagine its not than common because: a) plain white linen is typically folded square, and b) silk squares are 'poofed' rather than folded to a peak.
