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.

    The wool cotton looks great, as do the ginghams! Did you buy direct from Acorn? If so, what was the cost?

    chorse: I remember you posting a pic of a great casual shirt with flap pockets that you had made by Geneva. Could you please repost that picture (or pm me)?

    Thanks

    Seriously. Part of me wishes I hadn't bought any of this. But when the last Huddersfield mill shuts down, and it's impossible to get good, sturdy fabric any more, I will feel differently, and lord my good fortune over the rest of you. Bwaahahahaha!

    I hear you ... but I too have several cuts of cloth waiting to be made into coats or suits. And even now I'm anxiously awaiting the completion of Eden in Paris.

    Not that you would ... but ... if you ever choose to divest ... I'll take that 14 ounce woolen flannel in postman blue with dark blue triple check. That is beautiful!

    I think I have a problem. You know when you say you're not going to do something anymore, and then you do it again 6 days later? Like say, buy fabric? Anyhow, the infamous gunclub arrived recently thanks to another forum member.

    Let the ridiculous constumery begin. I envision a jacket and matching tweed cap (not to be worn together) in the distant future.

    can someone tell me whether H Lesser does a 11oz or 13oz Navy Windowpane in Golden Bale (or otherwise)? If so, please do tell the fabric code so I can ask for it. Thanks.

    There's one in the 10 ounce worsted book, and there's an 11 ounce worsted flannel in the flannel book. There may be others; I'm not sure.
