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,

    I liked his outfits, and hated his tie tying.

    Yea I liked his fit the best. I'm indifferent about the tie tying. I wouldn't do it but it works for him.

    Is this Mr. Claymore? If so, he looks great!

    Yup, that's mr Claymore, one of the guys we've spent most time with here. Thank you for all the comments. We've had a really fun week. It's always nice going to a place where you can actually enjoy menswear nerdery 24/7 for 4 whole days.

    Since Mr Claymore is mentioned and photographed so often, may I ask - is he in the biz? Or just in it for fun? Blogger perhaps? I assume he's also been on SF at some point.

    He's certainly an eccentric dresser - verging on the dandy. Nothing wrong with that of course. Well, not in my book anyway.

    That's me. Well, thank you kindly.


    I'm an American buyer so I'm here for work but I also happen to love it. Pitti is an incredible experience. It's kind of like all the best parts of Styleforum in real life; passion about clothing, seeing all sorts of interesting new things, learning a ton, and a comunity of fascinating friendly people, with none of the closed mindedness and negativity that the Internet breeds.

    Over the past few fairs Eric, Erica, and I have become close friends. Erik takes a lot of pictures and we're often together so I end up in too many of them.

    I have a somewhat historical take on dressing with a bit more flair than the forum tends to prefer (not that I care.) I attempt to stay just this side of costume. Sometimes I am more successful than others.

    Thanks @Mr. Claymore for your clarification. I thought your day 1 outfit was indeed verging on costume, but if that's your interest, what better place to do it than Pitti?

    With your facial hair, you do bear more than a passing resemblance to famous 19th-century Czech composer Antonin Dvorak -

    He did live in the States for a few years (hence the "New World" Symphony and the "American" Quartet). Checked your family tree recently?

    Met him last week in London here: our American members "Mr Claymore" and "poorsod" happened to be in town. So a London contingent consisting of "Cantabrigan" and yours truly met up with them. We we were also joined by the two rising stars of the bespoke shoe trade, Daniel Wegan (G&G) and Nicholas Templeman.

    I think, I can speak for all participants and say it was a very enjoyable evening. Mr Claymore is a lovely guy and (not only by the way he dresses) a larger than life character.

    Yeah it was nice meeting you in London too. I notice from the pictures that Mr Claymore packed a lot of hats!

    I am quite the opposite. I try to travel with carry ons only.

    how many of these guys were secretly ecstatic at the opportunity to accessorize with their umbrellas?
