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,

    Fok on behalf of the entire Styleforum team

    As my wife was dragging me around shopping yesterday, I made my first trip into a Jos. A. Banks.  Mostly out of curiosity because of the post a couple weeks ago where one member was highly praising the quality/value of their suits. (I don't see it, just my opinion) In any event, their top tie line appears to be a seven-fold.  They sell for $69 and seemed pretty decent.  Anyone know if there are any telltale signs of how to tell if they are true seven folds without doing anything that would make the sales staff angry?

    This is a good question. I have no answer, but will ramble nonetheless.

    I noticed the self-tipped Jos Bank ties, and assumed them to be just that, self-tipped but otherwise normal Jos ties. Presumably this would be done to simulate value. At $70, why not just pay a few bucks more and buy a Carlo Franco?

    Belk's, a lower end department store also has a line of self-tipped ties for $20 on sale(which occurs often). They even put them in boxes that look very similar to the Talbott box.
