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.

    Hi all. This is my first post and I hope you can help because my wardrobe is flat out embarrassing. I went to several thrift store this weekend and found some amazing shirts for less than 10 dollars (some looked as if they hadn't even been worn before). Some were MTM (Tom Ford) and others were OTR (Gitman Bros.) The fabrics looked and felt good to the touch. A google search showed me how much these shirts would cost new and according to their respective sites the starting range was about $140 for the OTR shirts. The problem with these shirts is that they were all too large for me. For the price, though, this would be a good deal if I could have the shirts tailored to fit me. I am no tailor, but it stands to reason that a shirt with too much fabric could be made into a smaller shirt. Even if the tailoring is expensive I may still wind up with a bargain. I guess the question is, how much can a tailor do? If I took them a shirt that swallows me whole made out of quality fabric, could they make me a new one out of it? If so, how much do you think such work would cost?
