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,

    Do people see how incredibly thin, light and awesome those YHN are?

    And the Mazzarelli Box! Everything has been upgraded from last go round - I felt the Barba box wasn't pulling it's full weight =)

    For approval (still getting the hang of this, as I'm not the most SF-approved dresser :fu: :
    Just wanted to know what you think about these:
    L-R: NWT Ermenegildo Zegna (very soft hand), NWT RLPL (made in Italy), RLPL (made in England) - (Bonus tie).
    All are under 4", the blue RLPL being 3 7/8"

    Shoes - I vote down all three. Do you have any other options? Again, this is supposed to be the highest caliber swaps - please bring your best stuff to play. You've gotten great items from the box the past few rounds - if you have to put in something snazzy, please do so.

    If you don't feel that what you are offering is up to snuff, please pass.

    Looks grey to me, I think the WB was off in his first pic.

    I'm going to ship to Shoes today (quicker than meeting due to work and habitation locations and schedules), unless someone of [relative around here] authority tells me otherwise.
