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.

    What is the proper length of a cardigan or button/zip front sweater? I bring this up because of Gerry's last post. That outfit is probably something I would wear to work sans jacket. However, I notice a lot of my cardigans or zip front sweaters tend to be longer in length. Sizing down would appear to be shrunken in fit I believe. Do certain makers intentionally design their cardigans shorter in the body?

    Thanks for all the very kind words. High praise indeed!

    I didn't have it altered at all. I would consider it more like a shirt-jacket. A lot of the pictures I've seen where it's worn like a sportscoat look not quite right to me - a couple of the pictures with ties in this post look a little like lab coats to me.

    When I looked at the measurements for my usual size, they just seemed way too big around the chest and I considered sizing down. All the advice was to go TTS so I did and it was the right choice.

    Save some dough. Figure out what kind of belt or shirts you might be interested in. Update some of that.

    There will be trial and failure.

    Best advice: don't be impatient. It's the downfall of many a consumer. Wait until you find something you really like.

    Otherwise, jackets look great. The Eidos stuff stands out!
