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,

    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.

    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.

    I can definitely agree with that. In previous sales, I have picked up; Kiton, Brioni, Ferragamo, Borrelli, Stefano Ricci, Marinella, Tallbott, Zegna, T&A, etc.

    Melbourne guitar heads John Scofield Trio is playing Brids Basement next week. Miss at your own peril. So pissed off as this appears to be his only Oz gigs.

    I found some on display at a hotel's sitting room in Bangkok. None for sale, though.

    There were antique knick knacks which were immaculately exhibited in the library, sitting room, and dining room. Vintage trunks, taxidermy, notebooks, maps, books, mapping tools, optician's equipment.

    Thanks for the update and pics, won't be to everyones taste but I think the above works alright.

    I couldn't decide between olive / navy and sure enough by the time i'd decided today the spring20 no longer works >.< always the way when procrastinating on promos.

    I think olive will age better. Get it from Mr Porter. It will be about $25 aud more. But much quicker delivery and you will get a garment bag to store it and the free White pocket square. I am expecting a Barbour liddesdale navy from end tomorrow.
