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.

    Gentlemen, slightly off the topic of the thread, but while we are discussing hunting gear, my friend just gave me a Beretta catalog and the clothing therein is magnificent. Highly recommended to those of you with an outdoors mindset, nicer than Orvis.

    It looks fantastic but is awful quality from the sartorial point of view.

    Really? They have an excellent reputation among the field folk. Could you expand on that statement, please? We'd really like the details.

    All of their tailored clothing on St. James's street was very overpriced and poorly made.

    I shoot a Jeffrey SLE, myself but dressing in tweed to go bird shooting in the U.S. is . . . odd. Putting on a tweed coat for dinner afterwards is probably okay, so long as your shooting friends aren't named Junior or Bubba.

    Its common enough in parts of Europe, mostly worn by guys who are apprentice carpenters or other building trades who travel for a certain number of years to learn different skills and improve their English.

    Sir Royston, you are indeed the master of tweed, very nice. On my recent visit to NYC I was complimented a few times on my tweeds but I only had my jacket and waistcoat. I also like the look of tucking the trousers in the socks, will try this next time with my Scott nichol socks!
