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,

    yeah, i guess its the same. it just felt different. idrk why. maybe because i never get swatches from hober it feels different, but really hober is just as much bespoke. it would appear i misspoke about bespoke.

    Stitchy - You're too modest. You need to adopt the bespoken mentality. You are now a client of these two venerable cravateliers. When the subject of ties comes up and someone asks you for deets on the one you're wearing, you sniff a little and then harumph "Well, I use Hober and Cordone for my neckwear". Also, start a thread every time you consider having something "made up"; solicit the opinions of the membership here, disparage them when offered, argue for a while, and then ignore them.

    A better way is to say, "I have two tie makers: one in Asia and one in Europe." That way you up the smug-quotient whilst never giving peons the satisfaction of thinking they can afford what you wear.

    (that was a tactical "whilst")

    Looks like someone envies Foo... Dispite of his predictable behavior, those threads still goes on for many pages. So it can't be all bad.
    Those "looking for your opinion" threads are one of the most fun ones around, in my opinion. Everyone who has bespeak something and enjoys the process will understands how much you're going to obsess about the possibilities, putting them to the test will reveal how certain you're about them, but, the bespeaker should have an open mind so that everyone benefits from the discussion.

    Brilliant. That is the unfunded liabilities thread in a nutshell.

    I can understand why it felt different. I bespoke a few things before I first approached Chris about making a suit and have bespoken a few since. While none of them have been as big or involved, there is still something different about that purchase regardless. I don't imagine it will go away with the next one either. Some things are just special.

    Always wondered if the Joker was referencing Jerry Maguire in this scene
