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.

    Best combination of being a good location for my career, being convenient geographically, and being quite fun and safe. If I need to leave HK in the future I don't know where else I'd like to go other than Australia.

    Or do what all the wealthy New Yorkers do, move to Bar Harbor.

    Isn't that like HK though? Just colder and less Chinese. Probably no shirt rolling in NYC either.

    Def wouldn't shorten this jacket








    Linen's for summer, and unlined or half-lined jackets with taped seams can still have decent drape. Bonus is linen's traditionally worn with a looser fit.

    How about the shirts that are not designed to be tucked in?

    Suffering is okay unless it causes a sunstroke or heart attack.

    It depends. I tend to wear unless it is too darn hot. Another bonus of wearing t-shirts under is there is no way someone can get a glimpse of your belly.

    #24 seems to be quite good at dieting.

    I guess it was The Break-Up where Jennifer Aniston said she could not take seriously a man who had his bag over his shoulder.

    NYC is still #1 when it comes to fashion, business, finance, showbiz, etc, etc. Let's admit it NYC is sort of the capital of our world. Maybe in say 50 years this place wil be taken by some other city like HK but now it's NYC, hands down (FYI I don't live in NYC).

    What has happened to seersucker for summer suits? When I worked in Dallas (admittedly thirty years ago), I wore either linen blend or seersucker five months out of the year. On the weekends, I wore an unlined seersucker blazer that was as cool as nothing at all... and far more stylish.

    Are these no longer acceptable?

    Seersucker is great! The PERFECT summer fabric.

    Too bad not so much is made up with it these days.

    Aside from polo shirts and t-shirts I don't think I own a shirt that isn't made to be tucked in...

    It will never be HK. I will make sure of it. I have nothing against them, but they are getting too close to becoming the #1 economy. I don't buy anything from China.

    Seersucker is hard to get in my neck of the woods. Besides, I guess it is not that suitable for washing as cotton.

    I have lots of casual shirts from the brands like Wrangler, Pepe Jeans London, Buffalo David Bitton. If I tuck them in my jeans I will be looking ridiculous.
