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.

    Mr To handles my slender body well, to trim the 34 size waistcoat to my probably 30, essentially 3-4 inches cut as he suggested.

    For shirt I've got no idea too.

    If I were you, I would ask my shirt maker when I place next order of new shirts.

    Normally I ask my Shirtmaker to do the alterations, or just ask him to adjust the pattern for the next order.
    If it is just shorten the sleeves, I do know an alteration tailor who do a great job.

    Tin Lun craftmanship is not bad but is not cheap due to the rent cost .(mid level in Central). I used to bring mine to Sham Shui Po tailor workshop . Last week I had several Thomas Mason shirts replaced collar at hkd30 each(~usd 4) providing with my fabric. The tailor is the workshop owner whom supply several tailor shops in HK .

    Sometimes, in a sarcastic tone.
    They just find it interesting of without reasons I'm in shirt & pants, rather than tee & shorts/denim.

    Inching back to the subject of value and AC, they will do CMT. Presumably not on fabric that you can already get through them, but I've had things sent from Acorn and Bonfanti, as well as some Madras cotton.

    CMT prices are something around $150-- so a Bonfanti makeup comes to less than $300 and will be a lot nicer than entry-level Mason.

    You can do CMT with AC on basically any fabric including stuff they carry.
