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.

    Give us an update after you've worn them out a few times.

    What would be the difference between the first wear and subsequent wears?

    I believe very few womens jackets have working pockets, sometimes no pocket at all, not even the welting.

    I got the white linen PS with the light blue border last night, Kent. I think I'll wear it to a girl's high school basketball game tonight with a navy sport coat. [​IMG]

    Actually, yes, since it also buttons like a mens jacket (womens jackets have the "breasts" reversed)—unless the photo was flipped.

    Exchanged a Christmas gift today and picked up this silk/wool number. I will wear it puffed 99.9% of the time, but will reserve the right to go full p'cock with puff-n-points. :D

    I actually keep a white PS tucked out of sight in my overcoat (pull it up sometimes if I feel like it) but it's more in case I'm caught without a square in my jacket. It is like forgetting to wear pants once you've gotten used to wearing one.

    I'm not usually a fan of pocket squares in vests, but this one I like. The colors and fabric look great against the suede.

    We're posting about one (very limited) square a week in our Etsy shop, as the squares I've been making from short fabric runs are starting to pile up. Above is one that was a PTO Gentlemen's Association square from last year. First of two colorways - we have orange, as well.

    Below is one we made from a little piece (maybe two yards?) of silk that we found in an estate. (EDIT: Now sold out.)

    And while I'm at it, a couple that sold out...
