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,

    can a tailor raise the armholes of a jacket, reducing the size of the armholes?

    (i hope that's clear)

    That's a rather complex operation. Jackets should have extra cloth tucked away, when taken apart, to facilitate the alteration.

    Thanks...everyone that I've spoken to has (without seeing the jacket) told me that the operation is impossible. Do you know how much it would cost, assuming a tailor was able to do it?

    Wouldn't that leave old stitching holes around the new armpit?

    For wool, is usually is not a problem.
