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,

    Most well-cut and best material Nehru I've seen. Is there a more correct name for this cut?

    It's actually a blue-gray glen plaid suit, which I only found out from seeing stills in a book, not from watching TCM reruns on my non HDTV! It's a three button rolled to two, and - horror of horrors - ventless!

    Me too. A tweed Nehru with gorgeous waist supression; I wonder if I could get Bookster to bite on this.

    During the closing credits of some of Cavett's ABC shows between 1969-1971 have his clothes provided by John Weitz (I think it's part of Palm Beach/Hart Shaffner and Marx/Austin Reed brand) and J. Press. The latter is an Ivy League clothing store in New Haven, CT with stores in NYC, Cambridge, and Washington, DC. But the one J. Press store on the West Coast in San Francisco closed few years ago. I know that Cavett went to Yale.

    J,Prees, Arthur M. Rosenberg, Mort Sills, Chipp were among the originators of the Ivy Style and
    all began in New Haven. Press closed it's store in San Francisco in the early 80s and the company was sold to a Japanese Corp
    in 1986, after which the character of the store changed significanty- For example I purchased a glen plaid RTW suit
    from Press with side vents, no darts, two buttons and a nipped waist in the late 70s. They've sold nothing like that
    for the past 30 years, as far as I know.

    Ronald Regan was a stylish actor and ex-President like JFK. Regan worned windsor knots on neckties, spread collar shirts, stylish conservative suits. Turnbull & Asser, and Brooks Brothers shirts, etc.
