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,

    Post up the sizing on the jacket. There are some shorter members on here that could possibly wear a kids sized jacket. 34/36 jackets aren't terribly common so it'd possibly help someone out!

    My thoughts exactly, and I think a Boys 20 should possibly be about a 36/38XS given that my BB Boys blazer is an 18 and fits a 38XS, though it may be cut trimmer.

    This was my favorite toy from age 5- ... 9? Old Optimus with funky battle station mode laid waste to the battlefield that was my room

    First stage done, next up, double piped pockets and a barchetta chest pocket. I already kind of fucked the pattern matching, but hey, it's my first jacket. :embar:

    This must be a sign of a misspent youth, but when I hear Optimus, this is the first thing that comes to mind...

    A also want to give a huge, huge shout out to ReubenR. Warning, a ton of pictures below!

    The other week he contacted me, knowing that I'm a fashion design major, and asked if I would be interested in this book. Of course I said yes, and today it arrived on my doorstep. He didn't ask for anything in return, only that I put it to good use. Amazing. Also it should be noted that this thing is huge and weighs a ton. I put my glasses on top for scale. Once I get better at garment construction, this will come in handy for design ideas. Thank you again sir, you are a true gentleman.

    It would require a big scanner and some time but it would be great to have a scanned version of this. Regardless it is very nice to simply have these pictures. Congrats

    My pleasure, man! It just seemed wrong to sell it to some unknown who might or might not have taken care of it. The picture above is one of my favorites in the book, because of the last point which mentions "the serious woolen situation and the marked scarcity of dye stuffs," a subtle reference to the ongoing war which America hadn't yet entered. Another of my favorites is much less subtle:

    Oh, that'd be great! I'd love to have a few of those prints framed and on the wall, but it would have been a terrible thing indeed to have cut the book up after it'd survived all this time. The quality's not fantastic, but I took pictures of each page and compiled them into an album a while back: http://imgur.com/a/ocxNt

    These are the 3 vue d'optiques that I didn't post the other day. While not crazy valuable, they were all made from the mid-1700s thru the early 1800s.
