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.

    Bill - looks great. Is that one of Mina's house fabrics? Looks like there's a bit of green in there as well. Also, love the tie. Mind sharing the maker?

    Thanks, D.

    This is another of my jackets from Mina in the defunct Carlo Barbera jacketings for H. Lesser. This one is a 13oz.

    Tie is a E. G. Cappelli grenadine, square is an E. G. Cappelli madder.

    As I mentioned above, it's actually a 13oz. But, the whole thing is made up feather light otherwise.

    You voice the thoughts in my head, Doc. It's a little creepy, so can you cut that out?

    Not today, but it's from the same batch as the gun check that I posted earlier:

    The cut is the same, except today's number has a barchetta instead of a patch breast.

    Not feelin' these two B. First looks like a really high button and the second looks short.

    You have good taste in cloth though.

    Agreed. I didn't think they would turn out this well just from looking at the swatches. I'm not 100% certain, but I think these are the swatches. In retrospect, perhaps I should have bought a length of all the cloths because they were relatively inexpensive. But I felt that I already had too many unfunded liabilities. Now I'm just waiting to see how the last two make up. :slayer:
