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,

    Diamondhead! We were there in '09 and I got talked into 'hiking' to the top of DH (didn't buy the teeshirt though) when I was a hundred pounds heavier. I had to take 3 breaks on the way up while the superfit couple who talked us into making the ascent practically ran to the top. :angry:

    Snoogz is blowin' up the New Year full time gig.

    Very nice. I haven't been here that long, but it looks like you've improved every part of your business in that time. Finding great stuff and your photo's are much better.

    Happy for you.

    Digmenow, congrats on the weight loss. I took 25lbs off this year, about 10 from where I want to be. Well done.

    Mt. Rushmore was meh, but the Badlands really did it for me - I was more impressed with that area than the Grand Canyon. If you're into hokey stuff, there's the Corn Palace in Mitchell and Wall Drug in Wall. The Crazy Horse memorial will dwarf nearby Mt. Rushmore when it's done...eventually. Wild West and dinosaur attractions etc - enough to do to keep you busy for a number of days and get it off your list. [​IMG]

    So remember this guy that I picked on tuesday?
    [​IMG][​IMG]

    Some research turned up the following:
    1) Info on the designer: http://www.michalsky.com/en/michael-michalsky/
    2) Online store: http://www.michalsky.com/shop/en/
    (Men: http://www.michalsky.com/shop/en/men/jackets/)
    3) Info on collections: http://www.michalsky.com/en/
    Mens Collection: http://www.michalsky.com/shop/en/men/


    Just an FYI in case someone runs into the label again. I'd say that this was atleast as good a pickup for me as the our legacy blazer! And probably a first for the thread, no?

    Picked this up recently, thought it was pretty nice. Not sure if its real or not. Any ideas? Either way, is this too large for a pocket square? Looked around for average sizes and this measures about 22"x22"

    I find it's very hard to stuff something of that size into the lapel pocket of a jacket in an elegant manner. I end up with an unsightly lump in the pocket.

    Smaller is better, as far as I can figure, when it comes to pocket squares.

    That's just me, I don't really know what I'm doing with PS though.

    Those are nice. Clapp made some great shoes back in the day. I've never seen that pattern, either - the vamp is scalloped to create the illusion of a wingtip and stitched over the toe piece. Strange, but cool.
