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.

    Make that three of us. I've gotten rid of my suits with patch pockets, they no longer appeal to me. Odd coats, sure; not suit jackets.

    four, smart move

    Deets on the pants please,Thanks.
    - very old RL
    That suit looks great, PG! Are you keeping the pantaloons as is? I feel like they could benefit from some tapering knee-down, or maybe taking the cuffs up a half inch. Bit too much break for my taste but still looks great.
    - as mentioned, I did not tighten the side tabs hence the minor puddles. & yes will keep the slight fullness of the pants

    Spoo - i am no tailor, but looking at this jacket, the fit is a whole lot better than your pinstripe suit yesterday and some other jackets you've posted because of the slightly flared skirt. I think that balances your body better. Goes back to the Michael Phelps reference i made some months ago...lol. You are not top heavy, so it is something in your tailoring throwing your body off proportions off and i suspect its the skirts of your jackets. Its like the tailor suppresses the waist, and continues suppressing all the way down. This fits very well. Also the pants on here appear a little fuller than yesterday's, which balances the proportions too.

    Finally someone has explained the secret behind the Spoo. I prefer his normal Michael Phelps look, even if it is technically incorrect.

    I think it's a perfect fit for concealed weapons and other spy gadgets. Notice we haven't heard from IST in a while? Spoo befriends him, he disappears. Coincidence or typical spy scenario?
