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,

    Fashion is impossible without dedicated artisans who possess an uncompromising vision of beauty (or perhaps not! --discuss amongst yourselves!).

    If anyone here wants to learn more about the bag-making that goes on at Ortus, then this is definitely worth a read (especially if you are interested in The Armoury and Antonio Liverano, as they are weaved into Komatsu-san's story).


    I wish everyone a peaceful and fulfilling holiday.

    Thank you all for your kind attention,

    Christopher Sebastian Berry

    Great translation! Mr. Komatsu certainly makes some of the finest bags out there.

    Hello everyone,





    (link): A NEW Men's Ex SCANLATION IS HERE!





    Akamine Yukio offers up his methodology behind developing one's classic sense of style,
    as well as his insights into his favorite tailor, Liverano & Liverano.

    On a brief side note, I have spent the past year working on a project which is about to finally come to fruition.

    My initial aim is to give trim fitting dress shirts added freedom of movement, while maintaining the visual benefits of an elegant pattern design.

    Further details can be found here.

    I look forward to keeping you all apprised as it launches in the near future.



    Thank you all for welcoming me into the SF community and for your continued support,

    Christopher Sebastian Berry
