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,

    We are sized similarly. I have had to have a slim fit BB tailored. I have not tried the extra slim fit but I'm guessing it would work for me. I recently purchased a Ralph lauren Custom Regent fit. That works pretty well for me.

    I kid, I am guessing you just like what you like. I first bought the BB traditional shirts and it was like a circus tent, but the majority of my dress shirts fit like that until about 18 months ago when I discovered this forum when I took a sales position. All of my shirts are now at least slim fit or a fitter cut, but since I came from a circus tent they seem to fit me well. I could probably do a little slimmer but it would psychologically make me self conscious about it being too tight.

    If you guys start with the "Good Morning Nephew" "Good Morning Uncle" routine I will fucking block both of you. That shit is the most annoying thing on this whole forum

    I used to measure my "backlog" in terms of individual items. Now, I just tell my wife something like, "I am going to list items out of room 2 this week". She has the patience of a saint.

    @thefastlife you can also just get darts on the shirts if it's the back that's bothering you.

    My favorite aspect of this hobby/career is walking into a jam packed thrift shop and walking out with a basketful of near-grail finds. I don't like the lines, but feeling like I scored is all the thrill necessary.

    That thread freaks me out. I stopped going in there because of it.
