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,

    A UK 9.5/Euro 42 isn't an 11.5. Is it? I wear 11.5 and I think the euro equivalent is 45 or so. Am I way off. I thought UK size was roughly 1 size off. Meaning these would be about 10.5. But, even that doesn't make sense if they are really a Euro 42.

    No, their sizing is all over the place. Eur 42 is a UK 8. It equates to a U.S. 8.5 or 9 depending on who you listen to.

    I'm not an expert but I have a minor in art history. Stylistically it doesn't seem to be from the 19th century.

    I have no real art training but I did stay at a holiday inn express last night and I can tell you without a doubt that this is 12th century Japanese.

    I'm sure it's pretty well known already but @Mr G from SD is a real stand up guy. If you guys remember the two Kitons I found a little while back... I had also found a reverse orphan from the same donor. Mister G found the jacket and gave me first crack. I now have another Kiton suit that fits me perfectly. I will post some fit pics once I get the pants tailored.
