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.

Extra material on suit back

    So I posted this in the Helmut Lang thread already, but I figured I'd get some quicker responses if I just made my own thread.

    I just purchased a lightweight HL suit and it fits relatively well (I have to take the waist in a bit), except for the upper back. The material below the neck, right between my shoulder blades appears to bunch up a bit. It just looks like there is too much material right there. So my question is, can this be remedied by a tailor or should I just return the suit?

    This is a common alteration; it's called lowering the collar. Many younger men (or those with good posture) need this alteration, as suits are often cut for men who have more of a slouch and therefore need more material along the length of the back.

    I fit both of those categories, so that is most likely the problem then.  Alright, thank you very much.
