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.

    The Poole rep touring China in episode 2 is an ass.

    The only thing that irritated me was his reluctance to eat the food: (1) that's just rude, and (2) a lot of it looked damned good to me and most of it looked fairly unobjectionable.

    Are you surprised? Never heard of the brits eating fish and chips in baking hot Spain?

    We can blame that on a lack of culture but in some cases ,it is a bit of superiority complex...

    Seemed okay to me. And his suits looked brilliant [which they should I suppose].

    Although he may have hated the food, I am reasonably sure they played it up for the sake of entertainment value.

    Do not forget that they do have to play on the character......Posh TOFF with colonial attitude is making more interesting to watch than cultured and respectful understanding of Chinese customs...

    That is making good television and stereotypes always work...

    His pink shirt and tie combo didn't look that good though.

    I was more impressed with the pinstriped double-breasted suit of the younger Poole rep (with the side part) from episode one.

    The third episode apart from a basic topic of training seemed to be the place they put all the pieces of film they did not want to throw away but could not fit in elsewhere.

    As an outsider my own opinion of which firms benefited from taking part based on what the editors showed us.
    Top - Maurice Sedwell - quality, quality, quality
    Then - Sexton - style and history
    Then - Norton - sensible boss with aiming to do the right thing
    Then - Richard Anderson - friendly team

    The ones that did not do themeselves much harm or good
    Ravi Tailor
    Anderson and Sheppard
    Dege and Skinner
    Richard James
    Henry Poole - though their Chinese adventure may put then in the loosers.

    The ones who would have lost customers if they had watched the program
    Gieves and Hawkes and Ozwald Boateng - even thinking of a "Montague Burton" central manufacturing facility for Savile Row clothes!

    Hi i watched the 3rd part of this great series last night 28th Jan. Does anyone know what the music was that was used in the catwalk show for the golden shears awards, it was a funky take on a classical piece possibly nutcracker, however i liked the modern twist version.

    My gosh - the bad plastic surgery on the A&F fellow at the end of ep1!

    Also, did anyone else notice the disjoint between the 'gentlemen' tailors and their sneering, somewhat less-than-gentlemanly behaviour?

    Yes, he was.

    It's called High School.

    Some of its effects only become apparent 40 years later.
