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,

    Finally got off the couch and visited a local seamstress. I actually had work done by her before when she was working at a different shop. She opened up her new store and it is a lovely space. Large fitting rooms, open front room with 2 large mirrors.

    I asked for two things: cuffs, and slanted hem

    She responded by saying the "in thing" now is 2" cuffs and she can have my cuffs altered on a slant.

    Too good to be true? We will see.

    I would not have pegged Roycru as a brothel denizen.

    A brothel seems like a strange location for a fashion show.:confused:

    Lol. In all seriousness though, I admire his wearing some of the same clothes 50 years later. I still wear a belt that I've had for 30 years, but 50 year old tweed is next level.

    I think my favorite thing about your pics, since we're on the topic, @Roycru, is that you always look entirely unamused in a variety of very amusing scenes.

    I just went through my closet and learned that I own 29 pairs of odd trousers and that's after donating around 8 a few months ago. Granted, most of them are before I actually made it a priority to start buying decent trousers. I'm probably going to end up purging another 10 and getting some meaningful alterations done to about 5. It's kind of crazy how much stuff can accumulate in our closets from our sartorial dark ages.

    Semi-seriously though. What do you wear when you don't wear a suit?
