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,

    So on Monday I start my tailor training. The insane amounts of knowledge that you all have given me subconsciously was the make or break to me getting the job.

    I'm ruddy excited to be finally working in the menswear industry and maybe even get to go to Pitti one day.

    Thanks, chaps!

    Its weird, Ive never seen that big of a size on a jacket but that would make it, what a 90 US? But its not that big on me, probably fits like a 44.

    @TheNeedMachine

    Synergy on the Hartmann, I found two larger sized suitcases of similar vintage. Don't know if they're desired or not but I thought they were badass so picked them up for personal use. Didn't even realize they don't have wheels so if/when I use them it'll be an arm workout, haha.

    I dig them for decorative value, plus when cheap I can't seem to pass them up.
