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.

    Since we're resurrecting dead posts...

    I had a conversation with a cinema costumer/designer about the suit a month or two ago. She mentioned that TC had to have 30+ of those suits made - because they were damaged in so many scenes.

    In fact, the scene where he draws his gun from his waistband required a special reinforced pant - that could hold up the holster without a belt. Throughout the film the suits were designed with loose spots or reinforcement to tolerate the action sequences.

    I hope that wasn't the tailor who chased me down the streets of Kowloon demanding that he make me a suit.

    Only one? Lucky fellow there. I got about three per block...

    Wow, I thought those people were impossible to speak to just because they lived in a different world. (Hollyworld)

    Oh well, I don't want the same "exact" suit- just one that pays good homage to it. I decided to post that since at first glance it is pretty close. Is there just a suit forum? In this one it seems mixed but mixture is nice.

    one of the MTM companies (based in nepal or some crazy place), whose name I forget offers movie replica clothes. They sell a suit like this, does anyone know what I'm talking about? edit: http://www.baronboutique.com/movie_replica_2.htm idk about this place or whatever, and it seems cheesy to order a suit replicated from a movie character, but whatever

    I'd guess you're talking about Magnoli Clothiers.

    I believe they used to have a Collateral suit but I'm not seeing it now. It's either no longer available or they changed the name.

    EDIT - I forgot about Baron. I think that's where I'd seen the Tom Cruise suit.
