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.

    Hello,

    I am heading over to Hong Kong in a few weeks for 6 day and friend told me that I should look into getting some shirts made while I am over there since I've always tell him I struggle to find shirts that fit me off the rack.

    Anyways this is my first time ever doing something like this and I guess I am looking for advice on what I should be looking out for and how to go about it.
    If I can get shirts that fit me nicely, I honestly wont mind spending ~1000HKD per a shirt.

    I guess before asking for recommendation and advice, is 6 days enough to get a few shirts made or generally takes longer?

    If that is sufficient time, then I guess please provide me with some of your wisdom and knowledge please.

    6 days is enough. Do you have any particular tailor in mind? Ascot Chang is perhaps the best in HK for shirts but they start at $150USD.

    you can easily have shirts make in 6 days. I second the Ascot Chang recommendation, you won't find a better shirt maker than AC in Hong Kong.
    I would start by ordering one shirt and choosing an relatively inexpensive fabric to begin with, once they nail your pattern than order the rest of your shirts.
