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.

    A slightly odd looking garment but one you will doubtless cherish.

    Pitty the OP's photos are on Imageshack, can't view them outside the United States. Just seeing frogs in ice-cubes here.

    Nice sport coat with action back....I am in the process of commissioning a military style coat with action back too. Which tailor are you using for this project?

    Odd? The action-back is a classic design.
