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.

    Damn. Too slow. Strange way to tell you they are out of stock, take you all the way through the order process and then say they're not available.

    Anyone recommend some casual shoes to wear with jeans etc?

    All sorted for work/formal shoes but short of loafers I have no casual shoes other than runners.

    it's a bit of a cliché, but suede desert boots. I've got a pair of Clark's that I wear at most opportunities.

    Casual shoes nearly caused me to drop a lot of money during Black Friday.

    I chickened out after buying 4 pairs already this year

    I would say suede, with colours and styles to match what you wear casually. A suede derby is probably the only real shoe I would wear with shorts, otherwise sneakers or it is haha

    I'm new here, learnt a lot about footwear from lurking over a few months, but not much about clothes, especially for Aussie summers.

    Wondering if anyone knows of decent RTW garments in Sydney, particularly trousers, crafted from tropical weight, hopsack, fresco, mohair etc... I'm on the road a fair bit for work compared to previous summers and feeling the heat more than I used too.

    Up to 200 a pair is the budget, beyond that I'll be looking at MTM, which I gather starts at around 300 for anything decent?

    Yep, picked up a pair of dark brown Clark's desert boots in a sale on The Iconic for $120 last week.

    Not sure I agree with this. DM are entitled to charge whatever they like. They're not forcing anyone to buy.

    What they are doing is making a large selection of the world's best men's shoes available for immediate purchase in Melbourne and Sydney - along with an interesting range of accessories.

    In doing so, they are hopefully contributing towards a raising in the overall standard of men's attire and grooming in Australia. Now, some would argue that Australia doesn't need this, that it's elitist and snobby and un-Australian, bla bla. But I doubt that many on this board would hold that view.

    Double Monk just selling sh#t at inflated prices to people who don't mind. Nothing new about that and don't know why they need to be singled out when Henry Bucks, McLeods and Harrolds (among others) have been at it for much longer.

    And yeah, all power to Herringbone for providing the same product at a lower price.

    Bastards. Why can't they do this in Melbourne, where the deserving people live?

    Also, if I'm not mistaken Herringbone haven't been receiving them anymore as a result of a falling out about them including the shoes as part of their 40% and 50% off sales. Everytime I've been on their site and see if they have any shoes in my size they are always sold out. The sizes you can get are just the final ones they have left which are all extremely large sizes.

    Gents , do you own an omega SMP? Got rid of an Oris aquis and a FC classic index via eBay. And a possible new piece in 2017. Any thoughts on SMP vs Blnr.

    Do you mean a Speedmaster Pro? I have one, although it's the only high-end watch I have, so I can't really compare it to anything.
