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.

    +1, very impressed with the Carmina pics I have seen recently. The split-toe posted above looks great. Patrick was also wearing a very nice suede Carmina when I saw him on the recent Chan tour.

    Taken from our blog and recent newsletter:

    How to Furl an Umbrella

    Huw Griffith-Jones of Fox umbrellas, one of the finest umbrella makers in the world, recently stopped into The Armoury to check on the latest stockist of his company's fine products. Fox's fine umbrellas typically have a slim silhouette but it takes a certain know-how to maintain that tidy look. While Huw was in, he gave us a quick tutorial on how to properly fold an umbrella which we would like to share with you.

    The first image is the before image. Messy, bulky and not terribly good for the umbrella in the long term. Carelessly curling up the umbrella will twist the ribs that hold out the canopy and eventually cause it to deform and possibly break. The correct way to furl is is:

    1. Close the umbrella.
    2. Wrap your hand around the metal points at the ends of the ribs to secure them and prevent them from twisting away as you furl the umbrella.
    3. Canopies are pre-creased between the steel ribs. Pinch the top of a single crease and run your fingers along the crease towards the edge of the canopy while stretching the canopy's panel outwards.
    4. Fold the panel over and around the shaft of the umbrella and hold it in place with your thumb.
    5. Repeat for every panel. On our Fox's 8 rib steel or stick umbrellas, you would need to repeat the process 7 times.
    6. Secure the canopy with the strap and button and you're done!

    Mind you, I'm going to go home and re-furl my umbrella. I just can't imagine doing it every time.

    That's great news. Congrats you two! Wish I could be there for the opening. I'm sure it'll be spectacular. You both have such broad and excellent taste. I got to try on one of the suit coats by Ring Jacket
