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.

    Take your pick, all have good cutters and are quite used to western men who exhibit the hallmarks of having had a good life. No cutter specialises in one type of body rather than another.

    Can't agree that; AMHC and Gordon Yao are in the same league - or higher. Chan expanded very rapidly and there are simply not enough good tailors in Hong Kong to sustain that rate of growth without some compromises along the way.

    That is true but the quality is poor and so not a commendation. Notice if you go for a fitting at the high end places such as Yao, AMHC and so on, the tailor is usually brought to do the fitting, I have never yet met one under 555 and frequently a great deal older. I repeat, there are not enough good tailors to go round.

    First of all I wish everyone a lovely Mid-Autumn Festival ahead.

    It seems October is just round the corner, is there anyone who are getting their winter stuff ready?
