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.

    I believe I understand the concept behind soft tailored suits. The combination of minimal padding, floating canvas, and a light lining can create a soft tailored suit. (Please correct me if I'm inaccurate here)

    Neapolitan shirts are often described as being soft. What does this really mean? Outside of the collar and cuff interlining that can make a shirt look stiff, are there any construction techniques used to create a soft shirt?

    The interlinings are softer. They still have body and thickness but do not feel stiff.

    As simple as that? Clearly I was overthinking.
