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 actually introduced Rory to Josh Stein years ago in my home. Thought he might be able help Rory out. Too little too late, I guess.

    $5-6k is a tough price point for someone just starting out because he is competing with Logsdail, who is local, not to mention all the SR firms that visit.

    I think he's been at it for about 4 years now, he's mainly been based in the U.S and is now actually a citizen.

    From the Daily Beast article.
    Quote:
    Of course, a tailor could likely clothe such men in a made-to-measure fashion for far less money. And for most of us, who by statistical definition have close to "normal" body types, off the rack suits plus a quick trip to the tailor is sufficient. As much as we may love the art form, it's a bad business.

    Yet, as someone who dreams of having suits made at Anderson Sheppard some day, if I had the money, I'd be at Rory's shop in a heartbeat.

    It really isn't a bad business at all.

    This was one of the most painful to read articles I have ever seen. Why didnt the author just jerk off the old fashioned way instead of masturbating on paper?

    I don't know, jerking off onto paper goes way back as well. [​IMG]
