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

    In today's Times, the article below. They are not talking about stopping Chinatown fakes, but lower end versions of designer items, or apparently even similar items that couldn't even reasonably be called knockoffs.

    Interesting. I can't see the anti-copying campaign having much effect, though, as there are many heavy-weight retailers that make a lot of money on knock-offs. And knock-offs are an inevitable side effect of fashion-oriented clothing. You're certainly not going to find similar knock-offs of a Savile Row suit, for example.

    Banana Republic is doing their best to cover this one too.
