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.

    Is there any quality difference between the different traditional jermyn street shops when it comes to socks, or is it just a matter of different profit margins and different selection?

    Take Harvie&Hudson vs. Turnbull&Asser for example. £17 vs $24 a pair, is there a difference, or are they the same ones manufactured by Pantharella or whomever?

    They are the identical Pantherella socks, either 100% Cotton Lisle or 90/10% Merino wool (although T&A might offer a few more colours).

    'Woods of Shropshire' (mail order) charges the best prices for the same socks, but offer a limited colour range.

    That's awesome, do you know if they deduct VAT from their prices if you order them sent to an offshore address?
