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,

    Wow...this makes me feel really old.

    I spent a good portion of three youthful summers working on a farm that was tenant farmed by a German-American WWI American vet. H was a complex and funny guy who believed in luck.


    I posted pictures before of my Dad who was an RAF pilot in WW2. His mentor at RAF Cranwell was an old boy who had been in the cavalry in WW1 but as horses were useless in the mud most of them were sent off for retraining as pilots. He was a wonderful old fella who lived well into his eighties even though he lied about his age, but like most of these people would regail you for hours about all the daft things they got up to but never told any combat stories. My old man was the same. After he died my Mam gave me his one set of gold chain linked cufflinks and it was only then that I realized that the monogram on them wasn't his and they had most likely belonged to one of his mates who never made it back. I never wear gold but will always keep these along with a few other mementoes as I always say the memory of those old boys should be kept alive even though there aren't even many WW2 vets left now.

    Didn't really seem like anyone answered the OP's question. This is the closest I've found to the picture: http://www.etsy.com/listing/54240211/wool-felt-flower-lapel-pin. However, as someone else indicated, Mr. K on SF sells his versions here: http://www.styleforum.net/t/255295/mr-ks-lapel-flower-thread-with-all-styles-and-updates. Finally, they have a version at J and HP: http://jandhp.bigcartel.com/

    This didn't get answered?? The flower in the OP's picturer is from Strasburgo in Tokyo. They are often found on the website under "Accessories" but I don't see any at the moment. At 3000 yen, they are expensive.

    Ever thought about making a tiny one like the Strasburgo one Eric? I think they look a lot classier.

    I am working on them at the moment :D, but they are a lot harder to make, as it is pretty hard to figure out the right proportions plus they are pretty small making sewing a bit more difficult.

    I think, in a couple of days, I will have it figured out and then they will be up for sale :)

    cheers,
    Eric

    Hey guys, came across this one today at one of our partner tailor firms. If anyone's interested, might put them up for 4-5 dollars.

    Some people really need their first morning coffee before they go interact with others.
