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.

    Interesting, in theory it makes sense. But where I live I rarely see a trench coat unless it is absolutely pouring rain outside. Even then it is rare. So that I do not look a fool (albeit a dry one) I would use a 3/4 length rain coat.

    I love my Mackage Wade trench I bought last spring. Very modern, so I'm not sure it's everyone's cup of tea here, but I love it. :)

    You can still get it at Mackage's site and it's on sale.

    I see your point - we all have to adapt our clothes to our climatic environment. Where I live, the annual rainfall is well over 1 metre (40") and it rains, on average, on 200 days per year, with March-April-May as the (relatively) drier and October-November-December as the (relatively) wetter seasons. So, for someone in the west of Britain (and even more so in Ireland) more than one raincoat is by no means a luxury

    I was hoping to get a cheap rain coat from uniqlo when I'm in the Uk this summer, but it appears they don't carry a navy single breasted model anymore, neither does the US.

    Any other options for an affordable, 3/4 length cotton trench coat? (it might be called a mac coat, I don't know the terminology exactly)

    I'm scouring ebay for a aquascutum or burberry to no avail.
