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.

    Nice haul. I especially like the TB cardigan and the Aquablack. The watch looks like a beast, is it comfortable?

    Clothing related stuff I got:
    Land's End white linen pocket squares
    Macy's sweater (too large, will exchange)
    Some "hipster" clothing from Metro Park (bless my wife's heart, will exchange)
    iPhone sport case

    It is 44x17mm of solid PVD..it actually wears very comfortably and the strap is soft and comfortable. It's a perforated water resistant leather.

    How do the Grenson's fit? True to size? Thinking about picking up a pair? I'm a 43 or a 44, about a 10 to 11.

    I'm a pretty true 9.5D US (and, most of the time, an 8.5E UK) and these fit pretty true to size. They're maybe a touch narrow, but nothing that would justify sizing up.

    Although I get all my shirts monogrammed, I don't really like it on the cuff: was that your decision?

    Regardless, some nice things there.
