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'll need you to send me one of each so that I may evaluate each one in person. Thanks!

    4 and 6 stick out to me the most, but there all nice. Not a big fan of the paisley's but that is just my personal preference.

    2, 4, 8, 9, 13-15 are all good. 28 & 29 look like great fabric but the ducks radically slim your market.

    BTW - I'm loving the 3.75" flannel [​IMG]

    I love these. If I had a real need for more ties, I'd be ready to get these from you.

    Don't like paisley. I am think you should set those aside for the purposes of this poll and get people who like paisley to vote for best paisley. Of course this is only because I don't like paisley.

    Never liked Paisley -- looks like something growing in an agar jar.

    I like 6, 10, 25, 26, 27. I think allowing the public to vote is very smart. As a whole I think the line looks great and have my company holiday presents taken care of now. Thank you!

    I went with number 16, "Italian Silk Large Paisley". Not the most versatile tie around, but its playfulness won me over. [​IMG]

    14 (nice light colored air force blue) & 15 look gorgeous...much less they have wool and cashmere...which are excellent choices for the winter.

    Damn those look nice! I went with 13.

    I just returned a tie in exchange for a wider version of the same one and have to say that the customer service at M&S is outstanding [​IMG]

    I voted for 7, 8, 13, 19. Those plaid ones look pretty nice.
