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.

    Does not matter to me, even usd300 for a bonfanti shirt is out of my comfort zone for a shirt. I don't like to be extremely careful for drinking coffee or red wine. It may not be a easy job to iron Bonfanti shirts.

    Hard to say, and Bonfanti has different qualities. The Capri (100s or 120s) is pretty solid, trouble-free stuff. Dallas and New York cloths will need a little more care all the way around.

    Of course, prices are prices, and there is no point in going beyond where you need to be.

    There is a shirt tailor shop in Causeway stocks several rolls of entry level Mason shirtings offering around hkd800 (~usd105) per shirt . Craftmanship is below AC but value is good.

    Nothing specific. Alumo tends to have good stuff.

    The workmanship is not so good, but in this price and for causal use, fair enough.
