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,

    Rather help a sister out. Darts ... coming right up.

    Chuck - You've been out-designed and now out-cuted. Don't wash the car yet. You're still going to need soething to wear the way I figure it. And I'm still going to get all of the ties.

    As long as the pink/blue herringbone was your idea, I love it.

    No, the pink and blue hbone was mine too. Â But you just HAD to bring up the "that green tie", didn't you Nick. Turkey. Â [​IMG] LOL. Actually, I think the green tie's going to have its day in the sun though. Turned out to be a better seller than we expected. Â Only have a dozen or so left and St. Patty's day IS coming. Â What better choice?

    A black silver paisley as well? Count me in for that too. That way, I can sort of adhere to Mantons rules - just by switching ties between day and night. Awesome, just awesome.

    Sorry Chuck, you owe Jill dinner. I suggest Chez Henri, just around the block from my bachelor pad, when you visit Boston.

    What would you guys pair that paisley with? White on white, dark colored suit? I'll be needing one too Chuck, please.

    Is that RLPL?
    No. It's CKPL (Conrad Kabbaz Private Label) from his younger days. He's more mature now. Third grade will do that to you.
    Hey. Keep your snide comments to yourself. I'm trying to work a licensing deal with Chuck here.
    I definately like Conrad's earlier work. It was so much more unselfconscious. Now he's just yet another sellout... I hear his dad made him do it.

    I think I might put that tie with a pink and blue striped T&A french cuff spread collar, an ill fitting black Zegna suit, and a  lovely young lady: [​IMG] Needless to say, Chuck, I dig the tie and Jill wins. Tom

    Was that to say, if I can arrange to get you the tie (today if you wish), the lovely young lady comes to pick it up for you? Done deal if that's what you meant.

    Alex, if her "coming to pick them up" gets me a discount on shirts, then I'm in. Â (Unlike last time, she's not reading over my shoulder as i type this [​IMG] ) Â edited to preserve good spirits. Tom

    Tomorrow night. We are out of town for the holiday weekend and someone, not saying who, left the images in Dallas.

    Hint: Was not Jill.

    Sincerely,

    I think something's wrong with my computer - everytime I go to carlofranco.com I only see the "older" ties. I know the new ones are on there somewhere? I'm eager to choose.

    Sorry, working on it right now. Fitting the new ads into the old format so that they'll still work when the site is redone next week. Putting up a bunch of ads tonight and will post as soon as I flip the switch.

    Sincerely,
    Mudd
