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.

    Only because of the recent DB discussion. Last November.

    I usually don't apologize for my pics but this one was taken by someone else and I did what I could to put it back in some focus and color balance. It was taken at the end of a four hour dinner, reunion and historic presentation.

    The company that makes these is just a few blocks from my office. After I saw the product offering, I never bothered to walk up the stairs to take an in person look.

    Pretty good. For a '30s look, A+. For a more modern look, a little to busy and the shirt is too bright.

    I've been away so I missed this but thanks for the exposition. I was actually being sarcastic, I've got no issues with square shoulders. My intent wasn't apparent from the post though.



    Don't we all leave that last button undone these days because, once upon a time, the Duke of Somethingorother got too fat for his coat?

    thanks, omar. very kind of you.

    the jacket is kiton cashmere, picked it up on ebay, new without tags. it was a mtm/bespoke piece for a regional manager of a neiman marcus who never wore it. twas a great score.

    the pants are j crew ludlow flannels. they use fabric from the vitale barberis canonico mill, i think the same fabric that yount uses for their mid gray flannels. i was really surprised at the quality, much nicer than i anticipated. the only down side was that they were not nearly as slim as they claim them to be. i had to have my tailor taper them, and thankfully she did a great job. if you have a tailor you trust, i highly recommend picking up a pair.
