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,

    They do very nice work, and Pino Luciano is a really nice guy. It is just that some of the things they turn out can be atrociously styled, but that is no knock on their workmanship. Part of it is what the shops specify.

    Well who orders this kind of stuff? The Japanese?

    Que Dieu protege la reine...: You have to wonder; where WOULD this be sung? And when? And what consequences?[​IMG] No, I was raised in Ontario; the roast beef part of Canada, [​IMG]

    It's interesting that that guy who wrote The Suit put La Vera Sartoria Napoletana in a class of its own in terms of RTW suit make (IIRC), or it at least was the only RTW name I remember him citing.

    Yeah but their stuff wasn't quite this garish until this "limited edition" business. I imagine they've hired some marketing consultancy that feels that they need to highlight the "exclusivity" of their brand.

    Yeah, the item pictured is "a bit Daehn", as I'm trying to get people in Freedom to start saying...

    Hey, don't knock Foulkesy... he at least appears to be conscious of his image. I think Daehn must get a free suit every time he features Djay in his magazine.
