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.

    What is the technical term for the narrow strip of silk or viscose fabric band that goes across the inside of the side vents? [​IMG]

    Is that a Tom James garment? They are certainly commonly seen on that make.

    Yes, it is a Tom James suit but I have seen them on over custom suits too.

    You can have naming rights, go ahead, give it a shot.

    You see it sometimes even on Banana Republic level stuff.

    My BB suit has one but not my Tom James. Elio, English-American VP and fitter at their factory store actually strongly recommended I not get side vents. So I got them.
