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.

    If you have that many suits year-round suits already, get something for a specific season. Tan cotton (lower patch), grey or brown donegal 3-piece, something in linen.

    No. 1.5 breasted is where the buttons are close together (so its not double breasted i.e. doesnt go all the way from one side of your chest to the other but partially)

    Oh, no, those look silly. I was wondering why you posted one like that. Cucinelli does those as well.
