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 have gone up and down the net looking for black silk pique fabric from which to make a tuxedo? Does anyone have any suggestions on where to go?

    Thanks.

    I honestly don't mean to be a humbug, but why would you want to make a tux from silk? It would be hotter than wool and wouldn't last as long. Or do you mean silk for the facings?

    I don't know about pique but Dupioni is a classic choice for a DJ. Try Fishmans. Call them because only a fraction of their inventory is on the site.

    I would contact Beckenstein. They represent Scabal. Sound like the over the top sort of Fabric that they might have. It might be frightfully expensive.

    Ask for Jon 212 475-6666
