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,

    Went and checked out some fabrics this morning.

    The red is a pure linen.

    Any would be good for summer casual wear. Will go back after due consideration.

    Where were you last night?

    That's so long ago, I don't remember.

    Will I see you tonight?

    I never make plans that far ahead.

    I know you don't see them much around this forum but I've always thought they were a great formal option when done well.

    One of friends has that same DJ - it is beautifully elegant without the fluted bezel. Datejusts are a bit like mini coopers; they come in so many combinations, with fluted bezels, jubilee bracelets, diamond indices, dial colours and textures, single or two tones that it's unlikely you'll run into a similar watch. I do miss my DJ1. I sold it because for some reason I felt a bit pretentious wearing it since it didn't really reflect me. I was discussing this with Oli the other day that if I were to get a pure dress watch it would either be a PP Calatrava or a Louis Cartier Tank. The OP or explorer are good choices in the sense they are somewhat sporty and dressy. And you've already got a diver watch so a sub can wait. Have you looked at IWC? I've seen the 36mm pilot in anthracite in the flesh - they are wonderfully elegant and from when i enquires with Gregory's jewellers they had one at the Bondi store. Not as flashy as a Rolex but a solid option nonetheless.

    Can anyone recommend an optometrist in Sydney? My mate who used to work at OPSM in Macquarie St has moved on, and I need new glasses.

    Any suggestions?

    Bailey Nelson, they have 2 stores in the Sydney CBD. Australian owned and operated. Great looking frames at a reasonable price point.

    Just watch out, very pushy sales staff and bad quality control - I cycled through 4 different frames before I got a pair that didn't creak and feel like they were about to fall apart

    Was walking around town yesterday and saw an Asian iGent wearing a navy MTM suit, Vass U last museum calf oxfords, JLC moonphase and a leather tote. Anyone from here?
