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.

    After a year spent editing, composing the score and fine-tuning, I'm thrilled to report that I recently "locked picture" on MEN OF THE CLOTH, my film on Italian master tailors. And I couldn't have done it without the support from the members at Styleforum, who really came through last year when I was raising funds for editing. The result is a 96-minute documentary that I'm really proud of: a nuanced portrait of Old World artisans captured over the course of many years. These men live a life of meaning and purpose that I find incredibly inspiring.

    I've already started submitting to film festivals, but in the interim, I've launched a Kickstarter campaign to complete post-production. This is the "polishing" to get the film ready for distribution (the sound mix, color correction and mastering). I have to reach my funding goal of $20,000 by December 21st in order to receive the funds pledged.

    Once again, I've partnered with some amazing sponsors who are donating custom items to our effort -- many have been featured in discussions and editorials on Styleforum. They include:

    MARTIN GREENFIELD CLOTHIERS in Brooklyn, NY, who is offering a custom-made suit.
    California leather goods craftsman BASIL RACUK -- who sells at Leffot -- and is offering a handmade customized soft leather brief.
    Master tailor NINO CORVATO, who is offering custom-made trousers.
    GENEVA CUSTOM SHIRTS, who is offering custom shirts made with your own pattern.

    I hope you'll support my Kickstarter campaign in return for one of our custom rewards. Thanks a million!

    Giving this a bump. The campaign ends tomorrow and it still needs lots of support.

    So far, the Kickstarter campaign to fund post-production on MEN OF THE CLOTH is 61 % funded. We have until 11:59 pm EST on Friday December 21st to meet our $20,000 goal. There are still a few high-end rewards available: a custom suit from Martin Greenfield Clothiers & custom trousers from master tailor Nino Corvato, etc.

    Please read what John Tinseth had to say about MEN OF THE CLOTH on The Trad blog.

    This is a great project. Those who can, should donate something.
