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,

    Fok on behalf of the entire Styleforum team

    Sorry if this has been discussed before, but I searched and didn't see anything. Anyway, Ralph Lauren Black Label has been discontinued. I know that some in here think RLBL is overrated, but I'm disappointed to see it go. I didn't get around to purchasing a RLBL suit until very recently, but I am very happy with the fit and quality for the price point. For those RLBL fans out there, there are still some offering on the RL and other sites, but they are quickly selling out.

    Thanks, but if you are correct and they are selling the same items but with just new branding under the RLPL line, then that seems like a bad deal because the MSRPs of the former RLBL items are higher than they were under the old RLBL line. Guess we'll have to see how things shake out.

    They say the fabrics on the new ones are better.

    Yeah, I spoke to a rep at the Chevy Chase Ralph Lauren last October. He filled me in on PRL moving upmarket while RLBL and RLPL merge lineups. As a whole, the company is shifting slightly trend-forward.
