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.

    Don't y'all be going all huffy on us, Miss Troll Thangs - just crawl back into your troll holes, and let the adults talk about what THEY want to talk about, not what YOU want to talk about. That's good, darlings . . .

    I dont have the budget for St James Street.

    I'm not so keen on big brands but anything reasonably priced would do for me

    You can use those shops to try on hats to determine what shapes look best on you. Once you have brim and crown measurements you can buy online at a savings.

    Good advice, though I would buy a brush or something at the shop, if you can afford it, to support the in some way.

    Yeah, or when people ask you where you bought your hat (and they will) you can direct them to the shop. Seems like an equitable arrangement.

    Excellent advise

    Will definitely drop by there

    I always feel I might be disturbing by walking in asking questions and buy a small item

    Same applies when I pass by Savile Row. At times I want to drop in have a brief chat with the staff I'm sure some are stiff bored when the shops are not busy so it makes sense what you guys have advised

    I've visited hundreds of tailors over the years and have found that they are usually glad to have people walk in off the street, even if just for a browse. However, if you want to engage them in conversation it would be best to avoid the lunch hours when they are at their busiest.

    Hi mcarthur. I am going to get a couple of Optimo hats because of your postings here. Are your ones the "Chicago" model?
