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,

    (mitchellmurray @ Jan. 25 2005,20:20) Could anyone clarify what relationship the current Caraceni tailoring firm has to the original firm? Â Am I correct that the original firm made garments for Mr. Gianni Agnelli? Â If so, was that firm not purchased by Gianni Campagna? Â If I'm also correct in this regard, how does the current Caraceni firm compare with the original firm in terms of quality of workmanship and house style? Â Thank you.
    The 'original' Caraceni was Domenico Caraceni who was worldfamous back in the day [​IMG] Now there are 3 Caraceni's in Milan and one in Rome. As i've understood (correct me if i'm wrong) they're all related to Domenico. The 'best' Caraceni at the moment is A. Caraceni, which is also the one Richie Rich has visited. And yes, Gianni Agnelli did get his suits from that source (among many others).
    Sorry, my vote goes to the Roman ateliers of Tommy and Giulio... I much prefer the silhouette of the original Roman branch of the family [​IMG] .
