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 have a T &A that is about twenty years old.
    Admittedly, it's not worn that often, but it still
    looks great. I doubt that my recently-acquired
    Finamore's will last nearly that long- hand
    stitching looks delicate.

    Me as shirtmaker trained in Naples can say this shirts are a joke, bad fabrics of 3 euros meter , cheapo buttons, sew by machine, etc.

    Impossible to id on a blind test, unless for small features, a Banana Republic, Zara or any Bangladesh 20 euros shirt from a T & A , that indeed are Baglades shirts of 20e or less.

    Avoid!

    And the thing of a MTM minimun order of 5 shirts at 250 euros each, with no prior fitting the price of a top notch Neapolitan shirt with tons of handwork on very expensive fabrics of +35 euros meter, is simply dishonest.

    The only one I got frayed around the neck very quickly. I wouldn't buy another.
