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.

    I'm pretty nooby about suit details but what kind of pockets should a barchetta (breast pocket) be paired with? Are barchetta's more formal than patch pockets which are pretty casual I believe.


    It's the perfect shape for a horseshoe.

    Heading out there Saturday afternoon for a fitting - anything else worth doing in the neighborhood?

    It's no-man's-land out there. Kind of like culture shock, actually. Then again I'm just a gentrifying yuppie so what do I know?

    Gold Star bakery two doors down is about as old-skool as they come, and the tomato focaccia is delicious. Ask Frank about his favorite pizza place, and I'm sure you wont be disappointed.

    No it's a two piece, that's just the jacket I'm trying on.

    Just cause none of the stuff is new and expensive doesn't mean there aren't awesome options out there...in fact, I'd argue to say that the "authentic" Brooklyn is much better (gastronomically) than hipster Brooklyn. Gold Star rules, but on 15th Avenue is Lionis and Papa Pasquales...both have great heros, and great mozz. PP has home made macaroni, and ravioli thats second to no one. A bit further down on 86th in Gravesend is L&B Spumoni Gardens, a Brooklyn institution with the best Sicilian anywhere and great Spumoni. 18th Avenue has some great shops too, Frank and Sals has a boatload of imported Italian foods you'd be hardpressed to find anywhere else and a great butcher counter. Since its around Easter, you may get to see some Cabozzel...(Capozella for the folks who speak Italian and not Sicilian or Napulitan...but they might look at you funny for pronouncing it like that).
