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,

    This fabric is very old Zegna wool. And the quality of Zegna than 40 years ago has nothing to do with that today. I found it to Vecchio Drappiere of Milan. Like this?

    How does the Vintage Zegna fabric compare in quality to the Zegna fabric of 2013?

    Thank you for your response. All vintage fabrics were made to last long and they were even heavier. And then they were even more twisted. It was a whole other world. And then this does not crease ever. While today the fabrics are lighter and sometimes there are those that are rubbed away.

    And then the quality of the fabric is hard to describe. When you touch a vintage fabric by side with a modern fabric know what I mean ... I'm feeling difficult to explain. They are emotions.

    ^ That suit looks great. The ensemble would look 10 times better though with a simple light blue shirt.
