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.

    Loro Piana is one of my go-to brands for summery stuff: great polos, lovely brightly coloured linen shirts, summery cotton/linen trousers and occasionally jackets. I don't suspect the quality will suffer by the acquisition, and can't bring myself to care whether they introduce a few more overtly branded products alongside their more typical lines... but I do fear that the already sky-high prices will become astronomical.

    I didn't like when Prada bought Church's and I don't like when french buy our italian companies

    I'm a fan of LP, particularly their winter goods. I was in the Madison Ave. store a few days ago drooling over their goods as I selected my next winter coat. They are all about fabric, and as long as that doesn't change, then I'll continue to be a happy customer.

    I love Loro Piana though to be honest never really thought that the price is justified. They have beautiful knitwear but 7k for a pullover always seemed over the top unless I had just sold off more of the russian reserves I had come by illegally. Anyway I´m not sure about the LVMH thing as I don´t really like their MO but they certainly have done good things at Berluti. I just get the feeling that LVMH is getting to be a behemoth with subsidiaries in the same way hugo boss has offshoot labels. Are they the VW of the fashion world, possibly, but I thinks thats what in the long term will make individuality and small manufactures more interesting in the future.
