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.

    Ahh - got it. Bought the shirt new earlier this year and don't like the fit (red tag = traditional apparently...not sure how that differs from "regular" fit). I assumed it was red fleece because I'd never seen the tag color before...but I see the red fleece tag actually says "red fleece". Mine, decidedly not red fleece:

    that's red fleece. i think it is the tag they used when they first introduced the line. bb color tags only apply to the labels with the traditional script/configuration.

    Schott sweater zipper. No size tag, no country tag, looks L/XLish. I saw lots of people post their leather jackets who look dope as hell, I was wondering if their sweater were interesting for SFers.

    How old and what was the retail of that sportcoat, experts????

    Also, someone here suggested the jacket needed to be "reblocked" because the ticket pocket flap was off. I am wondering, is this something RL did to call attention to that detail, or is it F'D up? Spoo, others, please chime in


    Thanks

    Was very tempted to buy that for myself a few weeks ago. Sadly it was a bit too big. Good price, though! :)

    Pretty nice bemberg-lined Brooks Brothers linen/cotton jacket that fits perfectly for less than a gallon of gas at the Salvation Army:
