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 coat sleeve length could use alterations, yes. The other man's is right, and he's still not showing any cuff. I suppose even back then it was a no-no?

    Great photo Fabienne.
    Wow... there are some of my grandfather when he was a young tailor in Torquay (I think - maybe those were while he was on the Row), in some seriously dashing suits. Unfortunately they are about 6k miles away [​IMG]

    Two ancestors - just old photographs of the original paintings or daguerrotypes. Funny how these costumes are probably just fifty years or slightly more apart - fashion certainly changed. There's the late 18th century bewigged and lace-cravatted civil servant, and the early 19th century merchant, with the Brummell influence in between. [​IMG] [​IMG]
