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,

    Fok on behalf of the entire Styleforum team

    The unofficial SF Gun Club is from the Harrison's Glorious Twelfth book. Get it straight people.

    Sorry, Bill.

    Great coat, though.

    Is the unbuttoned Parker jacket look the new Teebowing?

    +1, the lack of sunglasses is very distracting. Nice jacket though. Really nice.

    I'm trying to build up a following for Parker, because he deserves his time in the sun.

    Have you enetered the world of bespoke shoes yet?

    No, I remain somewhat conflicted about it.

    Understandable. A cost I am not sure can be justified for myself.

    Well, for me it's not the cost as much as the notion of traveling to France just to get shoes made. Or to put another way, the notion of wasting time on clothes and shoes that could be spent better while in France. Unlike some of you actually, or many of you aspirationally, buying clothes and shoes are the last things on my mind when I travel...and by last, I mean never.

    Of course, there are English alternatives who do (or who have told me that they are willing if I ask) come to Boston. I'm not quite sure that I want to scuttle the shoes that I already have for one of them.

    Mostly, though, I'm too distracted by other things to think this out. So, I haven't bothered yet since an obvious bespoke choice has yet to emerge.

    How's that?

    This is a wonderful jacket. I am saddened that I am beginning to explore bespoke just as Carlo Barbera has disappeared from the market.

    Not really...since it is my attitude about it that is inconsistent.

    I would think that the curiosity of it would have gotten to you at some point. You obviously enjoy your clothing, which I would assume includes the creative aspect of it. Along the lines of a pure curiosity I would think it something worth investigating.
