    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 will let her know there's interest. She should post herself or even start a b&s thread. I'm off for the weekend, but I'll do this first thing when I come back.

    OK dudes,

    I've sent a PM to Acecow, and once he replies, I'll know for sure, but right now I'm willing to manage group buy #2.

    Until early next week, consider your orders and I'll post if it's on or not as soon as I hear myself.

    All the best,
    ccm

    OK, all orders are ready and are being shipped either to US for me to re-distribute or directly from Armenia to all international destinations.

    I am missing the address and SF nickname for Mr. Soon. He should know. Please send me a PM with your address.

    Thank you.

    Received the CONUS orders and I'll be shipping them out within two days. Most of you should get them by the end of the week.

    oh hai guys :devil:

    Thanks to the maker and acecow :slayer:

    What's great:
    • very nice hand painting
    • great colors

    Room for improvement (IMHO):
    • silk is too thin
    • rolled edge is too thin and loose, mostly got flattened out by post
    • edge stitching pitch is too low (too few stitches per inch)

    Thank You for your opinion. This is a new area for me, besides never had a chance to wear pocket squares to know about all these details:))) I’ll pay attention to all your remarks, thanks once more…
