    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.

    My wife really surprised me this year and presented me with a Chanel black ceramic chronograph watch for Christmas. I am so overwhelmed with her gift that I am wondering what surprises others on this Forum may have received. Are/were there any other great surprises like mine?

    It pales in comparison to your watch, but I got a one-year subscription to Mens Ex! [​IMG]

    wow! I hope you'll do the occasional scan of great photos from your magazine for us. I only wish we had magazines like that in the USA, with great photos of brioni, kiton, lobb, and other superb products. I bet mens ex blows mens vogue out of the water for stuff like that.

    Not to sound corny, but good health all around for the family. I'm very grateful.

    My wife gave me a book.

    I normally don't let my Mother buy unless it is off of my pre-approved list; but, she did a great job with the suprise Thom Browne cardigan.

    My brother took me to buy a suit at the Ralph Lauren store here in Boston. Surprisingly they were 60% off so he bought me two Black Label suits + tailoring for the price of one.

    I got a very special gift from my father. He was diagnosed with leukemia two weeks ago and has been in a hospital ever since, after feeling perfectly fine at the beginning of the month and had felt quite horribly very quickly. He has already been through his first round of Chemo and his progress is being monitored.

    Two nights before Christmas he told me and my two brothers what he had planned on getting us if he had not been confined to his first ever hospital bed. He told me he wanted to get me a pair of nice shoes that I can wear in my wedding in 5 months. He handed me over the money he was going to use and told me to get something special.

    Personally for me I knew I wanted to get a pair I could have for life, just in case this is his last Christmas gift to me. (However I pray there are more to come)

    I went out and bought a pair of black Renzo Ferragamo's from their Tramezza line. The are beautiful. One piece of leather makes the whole upper of the shoe. I considered lesser options, but it just did not feel right. The store manager let me borrow a beautiful brown pair so I could wrap, open on Christmas morning and show him. She was gracious to add some shoes trees to go with them as well.

    When I got to my last gift on Christmas morning, I opened the Ferragamo box to show him what he got me. He absolutely loved them. He asked to see them one more time after I initially put them away. It was a very special Christmas.

    Nice! Not the price, but what your brother did.
