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,

    Ok, let's say I wanted to take in the chest of a jacket 1.5-2". Is this a normal procedure for a tailor? Or is it one of those that, like the shoulder alteration, people tend to scoff at?

    I had all my jackets taken in the chest about 3''. My impression is that if the shoulders fit - it is easy to do.

    At the chest or at the waist?
