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,

    Fok on behalf of the entire Styleforum team

    Fok's remiss in his duties, but before we start posting a million photos I want to take a minute to especially thank all of the volunteers who helped out on Saturday. Without you guys, we absolutely would not have pulled it off. Don, Kevin, Justin, Andy, Seff, Ken, Greg, and everyone else who chipped in (a thousand apologies if I'm forgetting anyone) - I may have been tired and grumpy, but I can't tell you how much it meant. Thanks, and thanks again.

    - J

    Always making me look bad, but it's true. Without our volunteers, it would have been... problematic. Thanks guys, really, really, really, thanks.

    Cheers.

    Fok.

    Yes, Saturday was a ton of fun! It was a whirlwind of a day - which I think anyone who spent extended time there can tell you - but it was all a great experience. It was nice to meet some more of you guys, and I want to say thanks for Fok and the A&H team for putting this together, as well as all of the volunteers who made it go so smooth for us.

    I really enjoyed spending time with author Bruce Boyer. He was so enthusiastic speaking with everyone who stopped by to say "Hello" or to purchase a copy of his book. He was very impressed by The Proper Kit event and the attendees style and knowledge of menswear.

    Most of you know Zach from Styleforum and formerly of The Armoury. Here he is doing a high shine demo at the Hanger Projects table during the trunk show.

    A couple of these babies made their way home in my suitcase. Brooklyn's finest thanks to The Yellow Hook Necktie Company.

    This is the jacket Styleforum is working on and still in prototype stage. With a few fit tweaks this is going to be one bad-ass jacket. The feel and quality of the leather as well as the zippers and other hardware are outstanding. Don't miss out on this one...

    @Synthese grabbed that beauty off the rack and then forced me to stuff my arms into the sleeves. The leather felt terrific, and the zippers withstood our fine Editor-in-Chief's wrenching yanks and tugs. I'd love to throw down for one as soon as the fit gets dialed in.

    Is there a thread or a link on the leather jacket details. I'd like more info on when and how to buy. Also, the collar is quite sloped and narrow. Most classic cafe style collars have two snaps and are a bit more upright. Will there be a collar option?
