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,

    Someone already made the sarcastic Oscar joke I was going to. So I'm just going to tell you to stray away from Oscar and Tommy for now (always)

    I thought this looked good, wasn't aware of the other tells. Plus the fact that it DOESN'T say versace all over the front of the tie. Why buy huge fake tits then not show everyone?

    The dots are misaligned too. They should be staggered.

    Wife and kids headed out to Kansas to visit friends, I headed to GW to visit my friends [​IMG]

    As always, everything is available.

    BrooksEase Suit Gray Glen Plaid with Light Blue Overcheck 45L. Not sure how it made it to the 50% off color since it is in great shape.

    Bunch of shirts.

    Robert Talbott
    [​IMG]

    BB Linen for me
    [​IMG]

    BB Slim fit
    [​IMG]

    Nicole Miller (never picked her up, but I have been into Gingham lately and it is my size)
    [​IMG]

    Another first, loved this color. Not my size but someone will love it
    [​IMG]

    Never heard of this brand but it looked well made. was planning to keep than I saw the epulates and didn't think a 40 something man could pull the off.

    [​IMG][​IMG]

    Hawes and Curtis (I always get these confused with Gieves and Hawkes)
    [​IMG]
    Another slim fit BB
    [​IMG]

    The next two are bizarre to me, @Takai can tell you that Columbia TN is not a place you think of when you think cutting edge selvedge. More like Wranglers, Justin boots and a tshirt and ball cap. This is 50 miles south of Nashville in a rural area, and I find two nwt Evisu shirts.
