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.

    I've found a few Brooks Brothers ties over the years. The patterns and colors are still nice, but they're a little too wide for me (I'm slender and wide ties look weird). Would you advise taking them to a tailor to have them re-sewn? and if so, does anyone in Chicago know a trustworthy tailor?

    Thanks

    I might be able to meet up with you after class.



    Eve Cleaners on Broadway, though BB ties are abundant, so I would just wait until you find one to your liking.

    Anyone heard of Ring Jacket Meister before? Very luxurious feel on the fabric, but have the time to check for the amount of handwork. They want $2,000 HKD in the thrift shop, no thanks.

    Could be good. Is there any tradition of negotiation for price in the HK thrifts?

    Wolsey is wool/nylon pretty slim fit. When I look at the pic of the Arny it looks like a stain but I'm pretty sure it's a crease or something. Everything fits!
