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,

    My current experience... Off The Rack shirts suck.  I just bought a hugo boss shirt, I could pass a melon through the french cuffs.  Yikes.  and the body is cut way too full.  The Zegna shirts I have (from ebay) are gorgeous, but the size 43 uses a 16.5 collar.  Too Small.  I choke all day in them.  The Versace and Prada shirts I got on ebay are cut too full in the waist.  And I am not so skinny.  I have a flat stomach, but my waist is 36", and my chest is 43".  My shoulders are a bit broad (20"-21"), and my neck a 17".  The best shirt I own is Bernardo Firenze (some obscure Italian company I guess).  It's the only one that fits right.  Markham of Canada is okay.  The quality is as good as Zegna, but the cut is a little full.  I'll tell ya, once I get my Jantzen sizing right, I'll never go back to OTR.  I am finished with ill fitting shirts.

    I noticed a friend yesterday wearing a really nice white shirt with a unique rounded collar and a cool pattern to the fabric. It also fit him like it was made for him. So I asked him where he got it. He told me it was from Stefanelli, where he gets all of his shirts. They are really sweet.

    Oh I know completely. Off the rack shirts NEVER fit me well, I'm extremely skinny but my neck is 15.5", so either I get a 14" that fits my chest well but I can't button the top button, or I get a 15.5" that fits my neck well but I have a bunch of left over material flapping in the wind.
