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,

    Looking forward to some photos. Take some fit pics too, please.

    I love the TF aesthetic, alas, my slightly short stature and broad shoulders do not allow a good fit :(

    I agree that TF represents the James Bond brand really well, although I didn't much care for the fits in Skyfall. (Also, in fairness, I think Brioni did just fine by Brosnan in the early 2000s, and by Craig in Casino Royale).

    In that vein, if I were to commission one signature TF piece, it would probably be a classic tux. In fact, I am strongly considering doing so. If so, I will post the results here.

    When i saw skyfall in theaters i thought the fits were terrible. But strangely when i watched it again on iTunes yesterday in HD they looked a lot better. Some of them even looked pretty good

    Maybe I'll take a second look. Sooner or later I'm going to end up rewatching that movie, anyhow. But the fits just seemed too small and too Mad Men-esque. I realize there was a retro, return-to-classic-form trope running throughout the entire movie -- up to and including the car, the original Bond theme arrangement, etc. But the suits just seemed too self-consciously '60s to me. Worth another appraisal, though.

    Did you have to sneak the photo inside the shop or did you ask permission and they allowed you the photo? How large is the shop and are prices higher than in the US?

    I never asked. But I didn't feel the vibe for asking or the time for it. Since there where many customers inside and like 6-7 employees...

    The store was OK (would say like the NY store) you could almost find anything you are looking for. The same prices if you ask me.

    Many of the customers inside where from Russia cleaning the store out [​IMG]
