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.

    Would any of these vintage handkerchiefs be appropriate as pocket squares? Most are cotton, some are linen. The squares I wear currently are mostly silk.

    Worn whimsically, yes. But let me add a word of caution. Back in those pre-Kleenex days, handkerchiefs were used for the actual purpose of blowing one's nose. If you choose to do this (unless the handkerchiefs are deadstock), you'll probably be sporting someone's used snotrag.

    Finding deadstock with stickers still attached is not difficult.

    There's probably a SF member who harbors such a fetish, so let's keep this thread topped. [​IMG]
