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,

    Speaking of that, if any regulars here are a 17.5 dress shirt with a sleeve that's around a 36/37, let me know. I know Armani isn't considered grail, but I found an Armani Collezioni dress shirt that has some of the nicest-feeling fabric I've handled on a shirt, mint condition, thick mother of pearls, point collar. The color reminds me of the blue used for Brooks Brothers OCBD, but better. Rather than sell it on eBay I'd like to give it a good home to someone here that will wear it ($10 shipped, PM me for measurements and photos).

    I'd love to be in as I missed out on last X-mas. Just out of curiosity, what happens if you have nothing worthy for them in their size?

    Very cool - and perfect for summer! Seriously though, size?


    Unrelated, and this is absolutely not a shot at anyone who has recently posted, but do we really have to brag about Robert Graham anymore? I understand it makes money on Ebay, believe me, I am happy to find them whenever I am out, but unless someone stumbles upon an unexpected boatload of the stuff (which is really only interesting for the cash such a haul would pull in), is there any reason to "brag" about finding one of Mr. Graham's sartorial abortions, let alone the diffusion line?

    Don't mean to be a dick, and in the past I have been guilty of it too, but I just wanted to put that out there.


    And resume awesome finds... now!
