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 would pay it. Some of those Zegna cloths were fantastic. Nothing like it today if that is really vintage stuff.

    I won't believe it's vintage until someone lights it on fire.

    LL cloths must have gone up in price insanely. About the only thing I recall that was near that price were their cashmeres.

    You do realise the price is for a full suit length (3.5 meters) and not just pr. meter, right?

    Shirt Washing Question

    So I've washed some shirts in the machine on gentle cycle and left them hanging to dry. Now that they are totally dry, if I put them in the dryer to soften them up a bit and get out some wrinkles they shouldn't shrink at all, right? Ironing isn't an option time-wise plus I prefer shirts a bit more rugged looking and not crisped up from an iron.

    Thanks!

    No heat, no problem. Use the low or no heat setting on the dryer.
