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.

    +1. I had an older Sulka coat with very similar looking un-tagged fabric. I called it Alpaca.

    The little tag on mine you can sorta read (in person) says All Silk. Pretty sure mine is 1940s too -- pretty close to the dimensions of WWII US uniform ties.

    Arthur M. Rosenberg had a store which I remember in the 60s and or 70s in Manhattan in what I would call the "Ivy
    District" in the east 40s off Madison near BB, J Press, Paul Stuart, Chipp. Tripler. I still have one of their (wide) ties
    from the 70s .

    Found this yesterday:

    100% Cashmere Overcoat for Gimbels by Sandringham in really good shape (no holes). Extremely heavy. Someone posted a similar one earlier, I believe.

    I have it on good authority that the Paisley number was worn at the Playboy Mansion, circa 1974.
