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,

    Why don't you just bring it to the tailor? Maybe you can get two suits out if it.

    Found this at lunch. Vintage 60's-ish Strawbridge and Clothier Shawl Lapel Smoking Jacket/Robe.

    Looks like it has been worn a couple times, but the pockets are still sewn shut. Missing the original belt. Should be easy to replace.
    Personally I think I would add one of those Chinese Knot Buttons instead.

    Tagged Medium, Fits me (44) ok. Slightly snug. Ideally a 40-42 I'm thinking.

    I want to get Brian or myself into that thing. We'd probably both fit.

    One possibly hilarious picture of a (mostly) grown man who looks like he's wearing his dad's jacket?

    I have a SA very close to my office and sometimes hit it up at lunch and on the way home (as I did today) just b/c they usually leave the racks of new stuff sitting for a while when they bring it out, and it's easy to take a quick look. The 2nd stop yielded the shoes.
