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.

    When Ami returns from his New York buying trip we should have more details to announce about our meetup at Wingtip. It promises to be an enjoyable evening.

    I stopped in the store yesterday and had an enjoyable time with Erik Gavrilor, the Bespoke Advisor of WIngtip's downstairs custom department. Erik is a likeable guy full of enthusiasm about apparel, fabrics and construction. He is as much into tailored clothing as denim and boots. He is the man to see if you want to discuss WIngtip's various MTM programs. As part of our Meetup we will meet Erik and take a tour of the downstairs tailoring department.

    This sounds like a lot of fun! I'm going to do my best to attend. It'll be great to meet some more Bay Area SF folks.

    Well by a strange twist of luck I may be in SF that week and would like to join in. Sorry to hijack the thread but if anyone could estimate the temperatures in SF at this time of year it would help my decision making when it comes to pack. Also, as much as you could say this about any city, is SF considered a more or less formal type of place when it comes to business (medical field)? Thanks and I look forward to meeting some igents soon.

    Duke, we look forward to you joining us.

    The average is 58 for the daily high and 46 for the nightime low. Expect some chilly Bay breezes. I was walking around yesterday with a tweed jacket and a scarf and was quite comfortable.

    Once again, everyone is invited. Especially new SF members or long time lurkers :)

    If you haven't already, can you post here if you plan to attend so that I can get a rough head count for WIngtip?

    How come we can't have something like this in NYC (or is there and I am just unaware)?

    Sorry, back to Wingtip... are they still stocking AS?

    Go Niners!

    You can. Just start a thread and organize it. There is nothing "official" about these. Most retailers are also quite happy to host a meetup in their store for a bunch of potential customers. In 5+ years of helping to put these together I don't think we have ever been turned down. Most are quite simple, we just meet for drinks at a lively bar and then move on to dinner. But hosted events at retailers or manufacturers bring out the best crowds along with events set up to meet visiting SF members. We did that recently for Acidboy's visit. We went all over town that evening :)

    I'm looking forward to this event - I recently happened to meet Ami's mother, a designer in Arroyo Grande, and got the low down on the new furnishings (upholstered in Dormeuil!). I'm excited to see them in their finished state, as we may be ordering a sofa from her in the near future.

    Here is a pic of one of the upholstered Dormeuil chairs located downstairs in the MTM department. There are more up in the private club along with some covered in Johnston tweed fabric as well.
