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,

    I'm afraid my categorization of the shirt fabrics won't be consistent, due to my limited knowledge of, especially, the weaves. Sometimes the category is a weave, sometimes a pattern, and sometimes a fabric. The arrangement makes sense to me somehow, but additional info (or corrections) on the weaves and patterns would be most welcome.

    Always thought this was a gingham too, but it seems to be another check. Anyone?

    This thread reminds me of school.

    But I like it.


    For some reason, the thread reminds me of Raquel Welch covered in antibodies.

    Hehe. No no, don't go bankrupt. Just stop buying shoes for a week or so.
    What's your coat size?


    SO easy for you say ... don't you know I have a shell addiction? I just got these. After seeing this pic, how can a man resist?

    I am a slim 38R. Thankfully, I don't have a jacket/suit addiction. I don't need to wear them to work, and so have a few of each that I can get by with. But your pics are *not* helping. All those buttons !!

    You should get some in cold turkey in stead of shell.

    There are far worse things- Marilyn in a cowichan sort of defeats the purpose.

    Are you suggesting me to quit cold turkey w.r.t shoe purchases? That might be the only way to stop.

    (BTW, what did you think about those chukkas?)

    Just trying to help...

    (But first maybe some more Aldens?)


    (BTW, what did you think about those chukkas?)

    (I like the leather and colour, but prefer 'clean nosed' chukkas, if you know what I mean.)

    How about some stains?

    I can do a worn shirt collar.

    Superb photos!! The shirt fabric photos are fantastic. You should start another thread showing these photos and classifying the different fabric weaves, just for reference.

    I also like your new avatar pic, very smart!

    (I like the leather and colour, but prefer 'clean nosed' chukkas, if you know what I mean.)

    The stitching actually looks great in person, but yes, they are not to everyone's taste. They were also on sale for $400, which is great for shell cordovan.

    Thanks. Well, I was (and still am) hoping to get more info on the weaves and patterns, because I'm not an expert. So, if someone else could do the classifying...

    I also like your new avatar pic, very smart!

    NOBoDy has a name...

    are these weaves all the same, or are there differences?
