1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    All but the last one. It's twill [​IMG]
    Will try to post pics of them during this week in the Cappelli thread. The pics at the website don't do the ties any justice. In fact, none of Cappelli's pictures does any tie justice. I always ask Patrizio to send me pictures of the silks before committing. The downside of this approach is that the pictures always convinces me to buy the ties, when the website has kept me hesitant, lol.

    On the Madder note, given their dusty/matte sort of look, I'm guessing they're generally more suited for autumny "casual" type clothes like flannel suits and tweed SC's?

    Good question mate. I'd say robust may be a good word. Which is probably why of course they don't sit well with a suit, If that makes sense...

    Lol, I know I know. Honestly, I have no camera at hand and my iPhone camera sucks. The only time I post pictures of items I own is when I take my gf's phone. I've been meaning to start posting fits in WAYWRN when my iPhone 6 arrives in 4-5 weeks. You'll see it then, hopefully [​IMG]
