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 took no offense. You raised a legitimate issue with my approach.

    I just ordered a white linen pocket square with an orange hand-crochet border from Tamarina Traditionals. I'm very happy with it, I haven't seen anyone talk about them here, but Tamarina herself hand-rolls pocket squares as well as adds custom embroidery/crochet/hemstitching. Everything is made to order, but I saw she had made this orange bordered one before and asked if she could make another. I'm very pleased with the result, a nice bordered white linen square. I intend to wear it in the summer with a royal blue linen blazer I want to have made, sometimes with an orange silk knit tie.

    The service was excellent and the options available are vast, even though I went with something fairly low key. There are examples of embroidery work on the site that are very nice, flowers surrounding monograms, etc.

    @Pliny that's a really great idea. I see you did that with Kent Wang squares as well. Is it just the three you've posted?

    yeah thx just those, atho i got a couple others for my children eg KW's Ukiyo-e print below . The printed silk seems to have more depth and vibrancy than what u get on paper. And perfect for an @menswear tragic.

    So I'm not misinterpreting, you framed an actual square, rather than print, yes?
