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 bought a Brooks Brothers black/white herringbone tweed from ebay for $30 shipped. The description indicted it was "like new" and the pictures appear to justify this...we'll see when it arrives.

    ...I think it's because not everyone agrees with your opinion? I certainly don't. I quite like them and have a few of my garments made with them.

    Oh no, not agreeing with my opinion is perfectly fine. I just wasn't sure if my opinion/point came across.

    This will be my first time meeting with them. But they have an excellent reputation...you can see some of their work in this thread:

    Anyone made something up from the London Lounge Cloth Club Spring 2011 subscriptions yet? I sent the LLTW22 out for a sport coat. Can't wait to see the results!
