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.

    I also don't really understand the sizing. I am a 15.5 neck but I have a hard time believing that I could fit into a small for the rest of the shirt. I am a medium in jcrew, and a bb2 in black fleece. Would a small be big enough in the body and shoulders for someone 6'2" 170?

    I am 5'11" and 165, with a narrow build, but long arms, and the small fits me. I am guessing that you are a little bigger framed than I am, and I would recommend the medium for you (I've tried on both a small and a medium).

    Hey everyone,

    Thanks so much for the sizing feedback. Ultimately, I tried to make the shirts fit a range of bodies, and that required erring on the side of long for the sleeves and large for the collars. Although with these more casual seersucker and chambray shirts, this might be less of an issue as they're begging to be worn with an open collar.

    But I hear you. I met with my patternmaker today, and we're going to develop a custom XS size. This will have a 14.5-15 neck, shorter sleeves, and a slightly trimmer body.


    Yeah I guess it isn't really a deal breaker since i never intend on wearing it buttoned all the way up. I just happen to have a tiny neck with a giant head, and I find a larger collar seems to highlight this somehow. An XS with a tiny neck and shorter arms would be awesome, although I hope it doesn't get as slim in the body as, say, BoO or I am screwed.

    Would you mind noting the length of the ties?

    I've been interested in one of those Mills bags for a while now. The free shipping offer is really tempting.


    Sure, the ties are 58" long. That's pretty much the industry standard. I just picked up a new delivery of silk and chambray ties - along with chambray and madras bowties. They look f'in great! I'll have pictures to show you guys tomorrow.

    And yeah, the Mills bags are awesome. We just received the Flight bag in red. They've been really well received at our shop.

    While I'm working on the new tie images, I'll post this little gem. These magnetic ninja stars are one of my best-selling items. I've been buying every single piece that they produce:

    You get 2 stars for $19.

    You can either buy them at my website with any major credit card, or send me a PM if you want to pay with Paypal directly. Shipping is free for all orders over $50, so you'll have to pick up a few boxes or buy another item to get free shipping on them.

    Sorry for the wait guys, I finally got these photographed and online. As with the first round: 1. Ties measure 2.5" wide and 58" long. Bowties are square-end and measure 1.5" wide. 2. Made in NYC of either Italian silk or US cotton 3. Any order placed on my website over $50 automatically ships for free in the US. For SF members, if you want one of the items under $50, then I'll ship those for free to the US as well. Just PM me. 4. We only have 3-4 units of each tie, so if there's a style that you like, you might want to grab it quickly. Bowties First... [​IMG] Burgundy/Navy Stripe Silk Bowtie: $40 [​IMG] Blue Chambray Cotton Bowtie: $40 And now the Neckties... [​IMG] Multicolor Gingham Raw Silk Tie: $52 Note: this one is especially f'in awesome [​IMG] Burgundy Embroidered Lion Silk Tie: $60 [​IMG] Gold Paisley Silk Tie: $52 [​IMG] Red Buckle Pattern Silk Tie

    Yup, that's us. Alex & Simon live a few blocks away from the shop, so we know them really well. They're regular customers. It's amazing how often I hear this. There are "Real Housewives" fans coming out of the woodwork. Our UPS guy - who seriously resembles the "King of Queens," and would be the last guy I expect to watch any show on Bravo, called it out the day after that episode aired. It was crazy. There's a chance that I might be on this Tuesday's episode. I went to the party that they filmed. I didn't know anyone and just drank my face off. Because I wore a cardigan and had sideburns, everyone at this event assumed that I was in "Flight of the Conchords." I got wasted on Pomegranate martinis and danced like an idiot when they played Daft Punk. Actually, it's probably best if they don't show me on there.

    Here's a better look at the Tartan seersucker fabric. It's going to make an awesome short-sleeve.

    Thanks to this thread, I did something stupid; for some reason I just bought a bow-tie. I'm sure the minute I put it on, I'll laugh.

    Unfortunately, I'm not a US SF'er though. Free shipping options was really the only reason I considered doing my M.Sc. in the US, but alas, I'm Canadian for life.

    Lorenzo Martone, Marc Jacobs' fiancee, wore our burgundy stripe square-end bowtie to his 30th birthday party. It was pretty cool when we saw the photos on W magazine's blog.

    When I turned 30, I hired a punk/metal karaoke band and paid them an extra $500 to learn "Body Count's In the House" for that evening. I think that I'm still suffering from partial hearing loss.
