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,

    Fok on behalf of the entire Styleforum team

    Did Carl at CEGO have some nice stuff that's not from SG? I remember him posting something about it at the Unfunded Liabilities thread.

    CEGOs didn't have right fuzzy look IIRC. Also color was darker.

    Yes, but I don't think Foo likes the fuzz. What some see as fuzz, others see as pilling ...

    From memory, Carl's chambray was a "dressy" chambray, which is what makes it (and S&G) unique among other shirtings.

    The SG chambray I have from Will is a little fuzzy. Carl has shown me the chambray that he has and it is more neatly finished. I never saw Foos version in real life but from the pictures it looked different from mine as well. I thought Foo wanted the chambray for the surface texture that I haven't seen in other chambray variants. Only thing that comes close is a wool cotton blend.
