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.

    +1. LK looks outrageous at times, but he pulls it off without looking like a ridiculous caricature.

    True story, I spent a year in Beijing last year and while walking down a random sidewalk in a city of 20+ million LK walked past me going the opposite direction. Was wearing a camel/brown DB suit iirc.

    I'm curious who his tailor is. I haven't heard of too many tailors in Beijing on this forum, much less tailors in Beijing that are willing to experiment.

    thanks for the article, gus.

    jeffrey is truly a unique individual, and his posts here are part of sf lore. I do hope to come across him irl in the future and also give the forum a visit once in a while.

    I can very much recommend Sen Li, too. I commissioned several things with him and he nailed my pattern on the first suit. Funnily I ran into this very chelsea boots and dormeuil tonik wearing chap during one of the fittings. Suave fellow.
