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,

    Best: [​IMG] Thorogood for Epaulet Horsehide No. 685 Boot Probably the only truly decent pair of shoes I own. Almost too soon to tell if these should make the "best" list but it's fairly obvious just from a couple weeks of wear that these are very comfortable, go with more or less everything I own, and will likely last forever. [​IMG] Garrett Leight frames These are brand new, from the house line that's just started up by the son of Oliver Peoples founder Larry Leight, who owns a shop on Abbot Kinney here in Venice. These have drastically improved my look more than any other single piece. Worst: [​IMG] TM Lewin "Slim fit" dress shirts Purchased three of these for myself as part of an order of 8 for the groomsmen in my best friend's wedding. While the sizing was pretty good for the rest of the guys, even the smallest size in their "slim fit" was a joke and didn't really work on me at all. I had the one for the wedding tailored (including slimming the shoulders -- luckily there was extra length in the sleeves too), and didn't bother with the other two as there's no way it was worth it. Sold them at a pretty serious loss along with a bunch of other non-fitting British shirts I'd bought back in London before I knew how shirts were actually supposed to fit. I'd assumed the smallest size would be as good as I'd get; I was wrong. LL Bean Signature Madras shirts Bought two of these, was hoping they'd be great and I really liked the patterns. Ultimately, fit was bad, quality wasn't great. Tailoring was too costly and I would have been better off buying one good shirt from Epaulet instead of two from LLB.
