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 would like to dissociate myself completely from the previous poster and his alleged browser history.

    I had a good result with a MTM suit from KW, but also did not need any significant changes from the trial jacket. I think this is key for any MTM that is done through the internet and not in person. If the trial jacket fit Rudals well, he could get a nice result, but agree that he should go for in person MTM if the trial jacket is not pretty close.

    Nice pick-ups, Cleav. I really like the burgundy tie.

    For any of the projects looking to add to their shoe collection. Carmina has some staples on sale in their e-boutique. http://www.carmina.telemaco.es/index.asp?outlet=1 Calfskin shoes are in the low $300's, including shipping, and shell around $500 shipped. There are some nice Rain last wholecuts, a Forest last black captoe and a gorgeous burgundy shell wingtip on the Rain last. Please buy the burgundy shell Rain last wingtip in an 11UK, so I can resist the temptation.

    Newshoes, great shout on the Carminas. I'd have definitely pulled trigger on suede DMs but no my size :(

    It's a promotion on small (UK 5-6.5) and large (UK11-14) only. And I checked every one for exceptions, to no avail!

    I love EG capelli, sadly I only have 1 of their ties. They drape and knot really well:

    Thanks for the heads-up, but none of the ones I need were in my size. :(

    As an 11UK, it's a very rare occurrence when my size is in stock and on sale. Too much temptation.

    I know suits aren't the highest on my priority list, but I couldn't help myself.
