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,

    I definitely prefer a 4-cm width.

    Wow, that's a little wider than I pictured, most the ones I was looking at were between 1.5 and 3cm, don't even remember seeing too many options at the 4cm mark. Hence, the inquires, this is a completely new, experimental market for me.

    I just measured mine and they are actually 3.5 cm wide. I'd say it depends on how tall you are etc. I don't wear them often as I hardly ever wear suits (I'm a student), but I dislike the skinny look so I'd say 3 cm are an absolute minimum. Mine are from SuitSupply and might be an option if you want something between 3 and 4 cm.

    That is interesting, nobody has brought up the individual's height in the discussion. I am 5'9" so I don't know how that compares to you. I'm like you I don't plan on these being an everyday accessory, however, it's always nice to have something to stand out. Hence, my immaculate collection of cowboy boots. I figure an attorney with Cowboy boots and suspenders has to grab someones attention.

    Otherwise I completely agree about height. Not sure where I stand on the Cowboy boots though. [​IMG]
