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.

    Dark solid brown corozo would work IMHO. If you'd go with buttons that match the jacket too much, there is a risk of it looking like an orphan.

    Funeral etiquette. You put to death the old self, and are born again.

    I like smoke MOP as an option.

    Definitely no brass buttons unless you plan on leaving shore soon to battle the Spanish Armada - in which case, godspeed.

    @EliodA, congrats on the acquisition. I like smoked MOP for a summery jacket but think brown horn is a better choice for F/W. Of course I also like metal buttons (a dull pewter could be interesting).

    That's pretty much how I feel after a week in Mexico.

    A Mexican baptism is an intense, life-altering experience.

    Is that what kids are calling Tequila shots these days?

    @EliodA smoked MOP is great for lighter weight jackets, but for something as substantial as that cloth appears to be, I'd go with honey horn buttons. You'd get some of the contrast of brass in a more subdued, toned-down material.

    Someone should make a drink using Tequila and call it 'Mexican Baptism.'

    If I still drank, I'd be all over it.

    You lay on the bar, get a couple shots poured in your mouth, and one shot poured on your forehead which a hot girl drinks off of you.

    For the Tijuana Baptism, a donkey drinks the shot off your forehead.
