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.

    Classic, very nice look. What is this "snow" stuff everyone keeps yammering on about?

    Silverwarebandit - great tie!

    I passed on a 100% silk robe I'm not sure if I could bring myself to wear someone else's robe..... Any experience with these? I didn't recognize the brand name either but I don't know much about sleep wear brands.

    I have a lightweight Viyella cotton/wool burgundy paisley robe with a shawl collar (kind of like a smoking jacket/robe) I thrifted. When I got it home I noticed it smelled like R Kelly's sheets. :uhoh:
    I probably wouldn't have bought it if I'd noticed it in store but it wasn't anything that hot water and laundry detergent couldn't handle.

    I also thirfted a nice plush silk/cotton Versace robe. It made some money on ebay. As a result I always take a quick peak at robes.

    On a brag to come later (from before but with a full set of pictures [​IMG]) are these the nicest hand sewn button-holes I've ever seen or are the just not hand sewn??? I can usually tell quick but these look almost too nice from the back side. This thing is so sick!

    I have one of these that I thrifted a long time ago. One of my favorite things to wear. Might want to take a closer look at the suede, mine has an image of a peacock embossed in the suede patches. Didn't even notice it until after a couple wears!

    I can't see the pics very well on my phone right now. But merino wool by SmartWool and Mountain Hardwear equals a badass find! It's not Ibex, but it's still good stuff.

    Ibex stuff is amazing, and way expensive. It's worth picking up as long as its in decent shape.

    Disagree.

    Can't tell if its too short (sleeves appear to be) but I'm 100% OK with the fit. Yes it's fitted, but it's not tugging open at the button. If the vents are opening in the back, then maybe. But it appears to be the right size.

    Silverware: Yes, that Drakes is grenadine, and effing awesome.

    I hit some stores today with my good luck charm GM-H. Much nice things found. Details and pics .... soon. V busy @ work.

    I think it's a matter of style/taste/personal preference. To me, it's way too small, but that's the sort of thing kids wear these days, I guess.

    This I agree with. Slim fit's not for everyone. Neither is sack cut. Or Continental. But just because something fits snug doesn't mean it's the wrong size. I judge by whether the buttoned button yanks away from the button hole, and whether the jacket quarters otherwise lie flat.

    Tightness in the chest is causing the lapels to bow out. See how the space between the lapels is almond shaped? Tightness at the fastening point is stressing the fabric there too. It's not simply a matter of stylistic preference; it just plain doesn't fit.
