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,

    As a Northerner trapped in the deep South, I've observed that Southerners talk a big game about their usage of pork. And, for the most part, folks down here are skilled at the preparation and cooking of the common hog. However, I have a complaint to tender:

    One could (and I am) arguing that Southerners push the envelope a bit too far in terms of pig consumption. My overall argument is built upon two components.

    First, it strikes me that Southern folk eat too much pig. I consume BBQ twice a week. Don't get me wrong, I love the 'que. However, it strikes me as inappropriate to provide it as the main course for EVERY hosted event. Moreover, bacon is a meat, not a condiment; as such, it doesn't necessarily need to garnish things like spinach salads or baked fish.

    Second, the Southern approach to the components of the pig that are fit for human consumption is perhaps a bit optimistic. Case in point? Fatback (aka, "Streak 'o Lean") is dreadful and should not, under any circumstances, be confused with an edible meat product.

    Does Zegna have another tie line, other than Quindici? Or is this simply super recent? Regardless, holy shit:

    It's like fire roasted oak is fighting the peaty goodness of earth in my mouth, then kicking me in the stomach repeatedly

    Those kicks in the stomach? Yea, those are called ulcers. You get them from drinking at noon on a Thursday.

    The bacon debate a page back is genius, look what I start. I should be encouraged to kick the political hornets nest more often.

    Anyway, the Throat Threadz sale is shitty unless you want to pilfer the tie or sock selection. I walked away with only one wool/silk Hickey Freeman tie. John Varvatos stuff looks like only wankers would wear it.

    Super recent and nice. Great pattern also $$

    Might help to change your settings to 100 posts per page :) More quick scrolling and less clicking

    They have "Venticinque", which is a 25 color printed tie. Apparently they are being discontinued though, due to some flaws in the 25-stage printing process. I am starting to see some of them come up on ebay.

    That's an awesome Zegna btw.

    I picked this up to flip, but then I tried it on. Whoops. Supple pebble grain leather outer. Shearling partial lining. Fur lined detachable hood...
