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.

    "Burton"/Gerard is the keeper of the list and our "banker" for this year's event.

    We are thinking of calling the event "The English Cut" (just like the Spanish department store chain "El Corte InglÃ[​IMG]s"). [​IMG]

    We've moved the start time of our event up to 5:00 p.m., but otherwise everything is the same:

    • $76/person;

    • Hub 51 at 51 West Hubbard Street in Chicago (between Clark and Dearborn); and

    • Featured Vendors - Alfred Sargent, Harvie & Hudson and Hemingway Tailors; and

    I was just about to post about the three-figure admission being somewhat prohibitive...$76 is more realistic for a lowly student. Probably will attend now.

    Unfortunately, we have canceled the Sartorial Meet-up scheduled for October 15th. I look forward to meeting up with you otherwise.

    There wasn't interest - only one person paid-up, and we decided to cancel rather than waiting until the last minute. We wanted to be fair to the vendors - we didn't want to tell them the night before that it wasn't going to happen.

    Wow, I just saw this.
    Perhaps in the future what would be better is to compile a list of members in an urban area, then send notes out to them via pm?
    I didnt see this till now and would have signed up for this.

    I did PM and e-mail a dozen or so local forumites (all guys I've communicated with before) in publicizing the event, but I like your idea.

    Yes. Please understand that you can see Alfred Sargent, Harvie and Hudson and Hemingway Tailors here in Chicago next week. Despite our event being cancelled they all have trunk shows and everyone should do everything they can to come out and support great artisans.

    Even if you just come out to meet and them and talk about future needs, now certainly is the time to visit with some of the best representatives of men's clothing.
