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,

    Ok. What are some good mall brandish tie brands to look out for when they're on sale?


    Mall?

    I can't think of one CEO who would give a damn.
    Memory loss is quite an unnerving condition. I deeply sympathize. [​IMG]

    I'm especially perplexed by FNB's reference to Brummel at the end. Is it meant to be ironic? Surely gaudy ties such as those are the very antithesis of everything Brummel stood for.
    Brummell was something of a contrarian. He made what he wore establishment but it was opposed to the Fop of his day. If he were alive today, he would like unique things and be quite brand conscious. I could picture him getting his attire at Kilgour's rather than Huntsman.

    Serious question, FNB. Would you wear one of those ties out of the house?
    I think I might like this tie for the summer (assuming it is not a print and the texture/weight seems right in person), but would prefer it in a more summery color. [​IMG] That reminds me to dig up the JPress slub silk summer ties that are in a box somewhere.

    I have 36 ties, not including bows and bolos. They range in price from free (gifts) to a little over $200 CAD. I prefer wovens, especially grenadines in burgundy or black.

    Memory loss ... why I don't recall any memory loss?
