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,

    you are getting a lot of conflicting advice.
    on shirt #1
    the chest is a bit too tight.
    you have very square shoulders.
    the shirtmake needs to squre up the pattern a little.
    the cuffs look to long reduce to 2.75" in width.

    put some darts in the back to to reduce the fullness.
    don't touch the sleeves

    Hi Shirtmaven and thanks a lot for your reply!

    What makes you think the chest is too tight?
    What do you mean with squ(i?)ring up the patterns?
    Cuffs on future shirts will definitely be of reduced height, I do not like them this way too.
    Besides darts shouldn't I also have some fabric taken away at the seams around the waist?
    Why wouldn't you touch the sleeves, don't you think the right one is a bit too long and wide?
