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.

    Got a package yesterday. Alterations on a blue jacket steed made for me a year or so ago. Looks perfect now. Also, new 3 piece gray flannel to replace a 15 y/o gray flannel that just finally gave out. If can squeeze 20 years out of the new one--it's Minnis, so tougher flannel--it will last the rest of my working life.

    I think , indeed, it was 301. So, second lightest. Right in the middle. SB vest. Nothing fancy except the brace back trousers (which no one will ever see) and the vest itself, which is a rarity these days but I don't mind.

    That is a fantastic coat (and good looking kid, too!). Getting to be good weather for it, I imagine.

    That's a very classic tweed. Wish I had that in my queue.

    Thought I'd share this, since it mentions the cloth and measurements of a suit from the mothership for Prince Charles:

    "The Prince steps through the door. He is wearing a classic double-breasted suit in a light grey and blue glen check. Mr Hitchcock recognises it as having been made some time in the 1990s. It has jetted side pockets, no flaps - the Prince, who has a habit of putting his hands in his coat pockets, does not like flaps - 3¾in lapels, 1¾in turn-ups on the trousers and side vents measuring 9½in from the bottom of the coat to the pocket. It is made from pure wool, 11oz, woven by Lesser & Sons in Huddersfield, 'a light weight for this weather,' Mr Hitchcock observes. 'But he's in and out of cars, I suppose.' He is wearing a blue and white Bengal-stripe shirt, a light-blue silk tie, with a silk square tucked in his breast pocket."

    Looks good David.

    Also, I'm jealous that it's warm enough in NY that you don't need an overcoat.

    Thanks although I probably should have had one on! I took off my thick scarf, hat and gloves for a moment to take the photo then right back on.
