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.

    I'm in Manhattan for the first time on business for a week on the 3rd week of Aug. I'll be tied up most of the day but will have a day or 2 to myself. I'm looking for advice on what stores to visit.

    Obviously I know of 5th avenue but wondering if that's really the best use of my time. Budget is liberal and won't mind some stuff you won't normally see in Toronto.

    It depends on what you're looking for

    Clothing. The usual - shirts, pants. Don't know if by August there will be winter wear out but a nice coat perhaps. Accessories are also a good option - Cuff links, a new wallet!, an ipad :)slayer:)
    Don't need shoes. Not looking for jeans or t-shirts. Don't need a suit but hey, won't say no to a great deal on that front.

    Well in either case if it's just pants and shirts stop by Epaulet on orchard. They make some nice stuff

    MC only. It'll be for professional and semi-professional clothing.

    Pick stores where the AC is pumping and they leave the front doors open. Otherwise you will probably melt. Also, avoid the subway.

    These 4 stores should suffice.

    Saks Fifth Avenue
    Paul Stuart
    Bergdorf Goodman
    Barneys Men

    The Ralph Lauren Mansion on the Upper East side is worth a trip.

    I know you said you're not in the market for shoes but I think a trip to Leffot to look around should be on your agenda as well.
