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 do but makes little sense still. A city like London/Boston/Chicago would be better

    It's 69 degrees right now. But it's also 20 October. I'm wearing tweed, dammit.

    After a particularly reasonable evening a couple of weeks ago, I was lulled into thinking the heat had finally broken. I pulled out the NoodleSuit[​IMG] and after putting on the pants I realized I would sweat to death.

    So, not quite yet.

    A great man recently said, "This weather is bullshit."

    I'm wearing fresco or similar tomorrow. [​IMG]

    I'm wearing shorts and a polo shirt right now, so y'all can all stop complaining. I get five hours of tweed weather here.

    The representative from Florida votes "Yay" if we're voting on the weather being bullshit. I would love to enter the Friday challenge with my suede jacket but I'll look silly going outside with everyone else wearing tees.

    What are your ideal rainy-day/ winter shoes (non boots)?

    Some sort of grained leather plus rubber on the bottom (york sole, danite etc...)?

    Rainy day shoes are older pairs of calfskin shoes that are now my rainy day shoes.

    During snow and ice, I go all LL Bean Boot and change my shoes in the office.

    Yes. There's no fashion show on the train and most definitely not while walking a mile in the snow and ice from the train station to the office. I have C&J Islays and shell boots, but I don't see the point for the work commute when it's just as easy to change shoes when I get to the office.

    I should add, though, that if I'm walking around during the day for meetings or what not, I'll either wear my Islays (grain leather and danite sole) or Carmina shell boots with a Ridgeway sole or, if I am in a suit, dress shoes with Swims.

    Yes.

    Galoshes are also good to have in some situations.

    Cheers,

    I'm curious what you guys might think of the patterns below for SC's. I'm giving up on OTR as I slowly compile a wardrobe and am looking towards using a local tailor.

    I just discovered Sultan's Fabrics ( http://www.sultansfinefabrics.com/ ) here in Toronto. Aside from being able to order from the major books (I saw books and/or product from H&S, LP, Scabal and Dormueil, etc ) when I did my first dry run at the store today there is a lot of stuff already in their racks and the 10 OZ. Cashmere and 11 OZ Merino Wool below caught my eye. The particular mills aren't mentioned in the listing I took these pics from. I just know the stuff is Italian.
