And there is the spectacle maker in Adelaide.

Are you referring to Roger Henley, or someone else?

Roger Henly as far as I know he is the only bespoke frame maker in Oz.

I've bought two Henley frames now, and they are both excellent.

what were the frame materials on either of your frames CD? buffalo? acetate? I'm still waiting for the day I pick up some genuine tortoise shell frames in a thrift shop

Both of my Henleys were acetate. I found them very tough

Both of them were acetate. I found them very strong - I've stood on them and not broken the frame.

Good luck with the op shops; that sort of thing would be a great find.

Interesting - I didn't know that there was an umbrella-maker in Brisbane (well, just north of Brisbane).

 

I did a quick search and found this ABC story on Alicia Mora-Hyde and her umbrellas - it includes some nice photos and other details:

Is it just me or our world class internet speeds perhaps, but is the forum speed incredibly slow on PC these days? Mine takes forever to scroll, load and write.

^Yes, me too.

 

There's been a few comments about it in the "Site topics" thread but I'm not sure what's happening or what's causing it.

 

When I'm using Chrome as a browser, I find that it really slows down after a while and then I often get a "Flash has crashed" message. Once I click on the message and tell Flash not to re-start, it's usually fine.

Put this in your diary.
The majority of clothes are women's but there is a small amount of men's stuff and its good and cheap. Some of it even iGent approved.

Just a warning - while you, or more like your wife/mistress/whatever may get a good deal here you run the risk of meeting fxh in person - where he will tell you in no uncertain terms what is wrong with your outfit and/or the world today.
