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,

    Attolini, unless I'm mistaken.

    I've seen SFers (In Stitches, specifically) wear birdseye as a separate. But it's not common, and very hard to do. So I'd keep an eye out for the pants next time you're in that shop.

    I passed on a attolini made luciano orphan yesterday it was a princeofwales-esque check pattern but less tasteful and not that particularly sportcoat-able by sf standards at least, did I fuck up?

    Pow is super hard to use as an sc. I like wearing orphans with jeans though.

    Attolini, awesome thanks. Unfortunately, I picked it up closer to the beginning of the year, and honestly didn't even give thought to it being an orphan, or a birdseye weave for that matter.

    Looks more like Hopsack than Birdseye (at least in the photo provided).

    Late 60's/early 70's church custom grade is pretty good quality, right? I've heard they've (possibly?) gone downhill in recent years, especially post-prada, but that should be when they were highly regarded. Lightly worn, in my size and with lasted trees seemed like a good buy at sub-$100.

    The quality has declined some in recent years, though apparently it's mostly the quality of the leather as opposed to the construction. That definitely seems like a good buy to me!
