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,

    Still, Lagerfeld wasn't doing bad for himself.

    And, in any case, we're kidding ourselves. All of these guys surround themselves with the most flawless tail...only to take it in the tail. As they say, different strokes for different folks!

    Chris generously offered one of his coats for dissection yesterday and I forgot it in his shop.

    Doh!

    Thanks for sharing. I've seen this before but was unable to dig up. Amazing works here.

    Love the 1-button peak lapel and the glen check DB. I can't figure out how to re-host them?

    It seems Chris favors a more structured shoulder (roped?). I'd like to hear if Aportnoy's stuff is softer constructed like his Raph's that he posted. Either way Chris cuts a damn fine jacket.

    All my Despos pieces are made with zero shoulder padding and are extremely soft. Chris cuts a helluva soft suit if that's your pleasure.

    I love Chris' work, but I'll be the first to go out on a limb and say that the camel topcoat looks utterly ridiculous. I am sure that it would look great on someone, but I would not wear it under any circumstances. Just purely a matter of taste. Everything else I've seen looks fantastic.

    It IS kind of bathrobesque.

    Probably because of the lack of visible buttons?

    Bathrobes should be so lucky.
