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.

    Cheers,

    And should anyone make any bizarre comments on the internet about the need for taking pictures outdoors ... (I make no apology for shameless use of Tiny Brown Duchess as an accessory!)

    Had to do a search. Was somewhat bemused by a video that depicts "stylish" men consistently wearing suit jackets and sport coats about 2" short, at least by generally accepted SF standards. I'm curious whether your current attire will be seen as "out-moded" by these avant-gardists.

    It's probably becoming obvious by now that I'm a fan of your style Gerry, so it almost goes without saying that I like this fit...

    But what I would really like to know is where you acquired the bag?

    Thanks for the kind words! I got the bag directly from Christian Kimber himself and you can buy them online from his site or from NMWA.

    Last night's event at KnotStandard was lively, to say the least - a DJ, waiters serving hors d'oeuvres (of a vegetarian nature - quinoa sliders and vegetarian sushi-like creations), a crush of people, most of them young enough to be my spawn (a condition that increases with every day), and a bar with only one beleaguered barman (rather unequal to the task of keeping the masses well-lubricated). The showroom was nicely designed, and all that it should be - well-lit, airy, and decorated with large photos of models in menswear. There were some sample garments to be seen - jackets, suits, and shoes - but very little else, save for masses of fabric swatch books.

    My colleague's son did his duty with enthusiasm, describing in general terms the philosophy of the company, and he did reveal the price range - suits from $795 to $2795, depending on fabric, and that they worked with Vitale Barberis Canonico, Dormeuil, Holland & Sherry and Zegna. He stated that all the suits, regardless of price, are fully canvassed.

    He also said that one of the techniques which they use to promote their wares is the making of shirts - he promised me a free shirt (which is definitely bringing coals to Newcastle, but a nice sentiment, in any case). We shall see.

    Today is another day, and with the weather warming and brightening, a spring/summer suit out of storage.

    Suit - Paul Stuart/Phineas Cole
    Shirt - BB
    Tie - Drake's, via the Armoury, NYC
    Braces - Paul Stuart
    PS - no name brand
    Shoes - C & J

    @Gerry Nelson , I've said it before and I'll say it again; I love this suit! Although I am not sure I am fond of the vest paired with it. Both are nice in their own way but I do not think they blend in together well, color wise (I get that it's congruent though, being two heavy F/W items). My 2 cents!

    Are my eyes messing with me or are the trousers camo?
