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.

    Shirt - Lewin
    Tie - Charvet

    Am I the only one who thinks this is less than ideal?

    I don't dispute that you can roll some panamas, nor that some are made to be rolled. Indeed, both Lock & Co and Bates, in London, will sell you a "panama" (more likely a cuenca) rolled up in a tube. However, my point is that only the Optima shape can be rolled and only if it has a fabric sweatband, and even so, the hat will quickly begin to deteriorate and fall apart at the point of the hat (the very top and middle of the crown). The more expensive the hat, the more rolling your panama is a bad idea. And Fedora-shaped hats cannot be rolled at all.

    My sister bought me this tie for my birthday. It would not have been my choice. It comes from a small English maker called Van Buck who sell mainly through small local shops - as in this case, from Coes of Ipswich. I know yellow ties don't get much love here...

    Fair enough, but I never said that you should smash your panama hat every day. All I said was that they are crushable, which is true. My point was that changing the shape of such a hat permanently is pretty much not possible without using an additive. This, in contrast to shaped panamas which can be re-shaped with steam.

    Had a chance to take some snapshots after work and thought I'd post them here. We had sunny 26deg centigrade in Munich today ... so was a good time for a half-lined lighter weight suit

    Today was Election Day in California. I kept intact my perfect record of voting in every election since I was old enough to vote. Like Sir Joseph Porter KCB, "I always voted at my party's call,
    and I never thought of thinking for myself at all".

    After voting today, standing by the government issued Poling Place flag and poster warning against campaining near Poling Places and wearing my "I Voted" sticker, Brooks Brothers brown herringbone tweed jacket (part of a three piece suit that I got in 1965), yellow and white University stripe OCBD shirt, and tie, Jim Thompson pocket square, Orvis cord trousers, and Allen-Edmonds khaki grain McTavishes.

    I believe it is possible to reblock a good quality panama, although I don't think I'd like to try that. And, you're right, much like a felt hat, the brim can be shaped with steam. Although In would advise being really careful with a good hat.
