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,

    Well, to cut a long story short, they ended up being a very fancy trouser and waistcoat combination for my 2-year old son...

    In a nutshell: Make sure the fabric you chose is a super grade 100% wool. Squeeze and crumple up the fabric swatch using your hands and then watch it "bounce" back. Good wool will rebound back to normal quickly; blends will flake. Ask them if their suit jackets are fused, half canvas or full. Most HK suits are half. See if they have sample suit jackets to show you and, if they do, pinch the fabric between the buttons in the front. Feel for a "third" layer. Look for structure. Most importantly, ask them what happens if you're stuck with an ill-fitting garment. And lastly, do not pay more than 700 for a two piece. If you can cover these bases, HK suits can be a great value. Good luck, my friend.

    Try "Wear Nice Fashions" in Hong Kong. Very high quality custom-made suits.

    William Sani will take your money, deliver the wrong style suits in the wrong size, late and then refuse to refund you for MONTHS. Don't do business with this guy.
