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.

    I never wear a tux, but I would do anything to have that shawl tux in my closet.
    I like the tux a lot. I'm curious whether it is unvented, there's no indication one way or the other on the website. Their previous models have all been with single vents and I hate that.

    getting it sewn up would be really easy.

    This is the first BF tux that wasn't 2-button and notched lapeled, so I'm more interested than in the past. Sewing up the vent would be necessary though, if it is indeed vented.

    I actually ordered a new tux from my local BB last fall, but it took about three months to arrive, which was after the event for which I needed it. I passed on the purchase. So the BF tux is now a viable option.

    Looks like the spring summer 2010 stuff is up. I'm definitely feeling they're taking a new direction. Some of the suits seem really suppressed, the shoulder looks quite a bit different from previous seasons, and sleeves have gotten even shorter (at least in the pics). At any rate, most of it looks pretty nice.

    I normally like BBBF but does it all seem even more conspicuously short this year? I must be getting old.

    After going a bit longer last season it appears Thom is back to his roots by going really short.

    I wish Thom would cut the quarters more open. It would work better with the skinny lapels and give the coats much more grace.

    Thom needs to come up with something else. This is done.

    I agree, this look no longer works. The line showed promise through spring 2009, but since then, it has deteriorated in both quality and design. The items for spring 2010 appear to me to be worse than last fall, of course my opinion may change after seeing it IRL, but I doubt it. I'm not planning any BF purchases.

    It was for most items last fall, too, and it was very apparent.
