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,

    Not sure if these are all considered "designers" and I don't have anywhere near 10...but these are the clothing brands I have a lot of respect for:

    Ralph Lauren-He knew what he was doing and he makes a good garment. He's over extended himself, but that is what public companies have to do. Too much far east production.
    Anderson and Sheppard-love their heritage and they have maintained incredible quality
    Belvast-beautiful garment
    Alden-pound for pound...the BEST
    Brooks Brothers-less and less each day, but up until the late 70s...they were maybe the best ever for the price. now, far east production just like everyone else.
    Hermes-they have maintained elite quality in their leather goods for a long, long time
    FM Allen-these guys are pretty new on the block, but I love where they seem to be going. Very classic english, but some american twists. Fantastic quality.
    Huntsmen-love their fabrics.
