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 really hate heavy, thick, stiff ties.

    More necroposts.

    So who is going to ask where he can get one of the Carlo Franco ties mentioned in the thread?

    Anyone?

    I have mostly lighter ties. I tie a lot of 4 in hands and they just seem easier to tie to me.

    I'm just curious, cause I haven't seen anyone on this board dislike heavy ties. The opinion here seems to be that 7 or 4 fold is the be all, end all of ties
    7-fold does not mean necessarily heavier. I have a Charvet bespoke 7-fold that is actually very light. Arnys' "cravates d'atelier" are also pretty light. I like heavier ties myself, actually.
    Other "heavy" guys are: Charvet
    Surely you jest.

    I like lighter, but it obviously depends on what I'm wearing on a given day. My clothes aren't completely consistent.

    Most of my 7 seven folds are really light.
