    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.

    The only sensible way to retain Oli - would be to retain him in Remand.

    Few items for sale in the classifieds, would love an Aussie buyer. Check it out if you're interested in size small menswear (Aspesi rain jacket) and streetwear (Schneider, Geller, Opening Ceremony jackets).

    Gents,

    Any suggestions for quality cufflinks in Sydney? (Not novelty ones)

    Been to Henry Bucks and DJs, would be grateful for any other suggestions.

    Cheers,

    People seem to suggest Kazuna for everything else in Sydney, maybe he has some too!

    Its been a few years since being Sydney based, but also Herringbone used to have some. Nowadays most of mine are online purchases (mainly UK), as there is much better selection.

    I really like the ones I got from Kent Wang (not that I ever wear them).

    Best places for cuff links is Opshops - some surprisingly good ones or especially antique markets they have millions of cuff links and not very expensive - like $25 - $50 for very very nice ones and some unusual ones. With all sorts of different fastenings. My mate has hundreds of those 70s ones with the chain/band link underneath - as well as other types - he used to collect/ buy them from eBay USA by the bagfull - about 20 or so - for around $20 . I have a soft spot for them. There is an Australian site that sells vintage cufflinks at a reasonable price- can't remember the name now. Vintage cuff links win every time if you are going to wear cuff-links.

    Couldn't agree more. Mexican silver, loads of Art Deco MOP, Versace, Cartier, plenty of double-sided links, snap links. Huge range of nice stuff, nearly all under $20.

    Offers considered.

    I don't have a sig (fark auto correct) and nothing to sell. Mind you a certain Mr Luis Cypher did come knocking and wanted a signature in blood but on the advice of fxh I declined, wasn't paying enough if you ask me..

    Anyone watching Rake?

    H&K who manufacture in the People's Republic of Scotland and H&H are having sales.

    Agreed re. the op shops for cufflinks. But I needed new ones for a gift.

    Stumbled upon some nice cufflinks in the QVB, at a shop called Baroque Jewellery. A nice simple design in lapis-lazuli, MOP and sterling silver.

    Thanks again to everyone for the suggestions.

    Re Rake - tragically funny. Roxburgh is in his element. Missed the last episode but I do believe they repeat on the weekends?

    Bit late in the game for a suggestion on the cufflinks however there is a lovely lady by the name of Antonia Scales who has a stand at Balmain markets on the grounds of the little church near Our Place. Great selection of sterling silver cufflinks (of which I have several pairs) and lots of trinkets for the ladies too so you can always distract the missus whilst money and goods change hands. Oh and she does repairs free of charge on all her items.

    Does anyone know if Hermanbros is still in operation or is he taking a break? The website is up and running but attempts to contact Herman have been unsuccessful thus far.

    At last some honesty and integrity in the election.

    Hi guys,

    Is there still a consensus that by wearing a pair of burgundy shoes like the Loake Strand Burgundy in a typical office in the CBD (technical, non client-facing, occasional suit and tie but shirt and pant most of the time otherwise), you are "making a statement" and should be prepared for getting a lot of attention and probably criticism from black-only wearers?

    I like burgundy for its versatility and apparently it's the best colour for my navy/charcoal pants and occasional suits according to many people in SF and around the web, and cannot understand why most people in Melbourne just wear black shoes all the time. However as a new guy I prefer to just blend in instead of making a statement or draw too much attention from people if that is the case.

    Is the post below from Selvaggio in the old thread still relevant today and so I should stick with a pair or two of black cap toe oxford shoes just to be safe? Thanks.

    Just like the cufflinks, better in real life.
