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.

    I gather you are looking for off the rack.

    Depending on your budget and how fashion forward or conservative you want to go

    Country Road/Trenery
    Hugo Boss/ Polo Ralph
    Harrolds / Armani
    Henry Bucks/ Brooks Brother / MJ Bale

    UnamedPlayer could also check out American Tailors if they're still open.

    Managed to snag some Hiltl cord at the op shop recently, have to take the waist in though a size up from some grey slacks I'd bought from Henry Bucks a while back.

    I agree with lachyzee on the overcoat debate I'm a fan of macs and single-breasted coats I feel like they're the best modern alternative to heavier outerwear. I do like the m65 look sometimes though.

    Speaking of desert boots anyone ever own one of those Trickers "Playboy" style chukkas or anyother chukka with similar styling (crepe sole, no heel)?

    Not a fan of flannel.

    In Sydney you're lucky if it's cool enough to wear long pants.

    Since when did you have a licence to wear long pants?

    Brooks Brothers for grey trousers.

    People overestimate the warmth of flannel

    I have a pair of 11oz flannel trousers I can comfortably wear up to 25C (and I run hot)

    I'm flattered! [​IMG]

    I hope that you have a great time in Melbourne - the exhibition sounds interesting.

    By the way, if anyone is contemplating heading to Japan for a holiday, Jetstar is currently running a "fly one way, get the return leg free" sale, with return flights to Japan from $349 (depending on your departure point).

    http://www.jetstar.com/au/en/japan-return-for-free

    It looks as though school holidays are excluded (naturally), but you can pick up flights from now through to December this year. If you want to bring carry on luggage, you'll need to pay an extra $90 each leg, but a return flight to Japan for $529 is still pretty damned good!

    The deal finishes next Tuesday, 19 April.

    I've only seen (proper) woollen flannel, as opposed to worsted, at American Tailors occasionally, and Henry Bucks almost always some. From memory HBs was around $300+

    They do have a heel and that bit up the side (foxing I think its been called - not sure) isn't all sole but is the crepe run up the side as a sort of protection.

    Its not that great but you can spend and entertaining 2 hours there. I think there's still a small clothing exhibition upstairs associated with the "Blue" exhibition IIRC. Strangely they had info and clothes and dying with indigo etc from centuries ago but nothing on denim!!!

    Its also Record Shop Day tomorrow and Melbourne has millions of record shops - many with live gigs tomorrow- check out the maps of what's on. There's a fair few shops within walking distance of the "Arts Precinct"
