    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've always admired this photo of Douglas Fairbanks. I hope I can be this stylish at his age. I especially love the trousers he is wearing and want to have my tailor make me a pair in a similar material. Judging by the sheen on the thighs, I thought they might be velvet or moleskin. Anyone know of a book from one of the mills that may have something similar to this? Thanks.

    From the sheen I would suspect velvet.
