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'm afraid I don't understand what message you're trying to get across.

    The thing I love most about fxh's posts (and there are many) are that he explains his own jokes...I am sure he makes them up off the cuff (get that? - cuffs are on shirts, and even some trousers, and this is a forum with an interest in clothes, and shirts and trousers are clothes, and off the cuff is a expression for improvising and making it up on the spot.....oh dear now I am doing it)....

    Sorry guy's but my post got ignored and I'd really like some tips for a watch as I'm not very experienced but my dad has wanted one for a long while.
    Thanks :)

    What's your favorite place to get your chinos guys? I'm looking for some really slim fitting chinos in various colours at a good price point. Any suggestions or personal favorites? :)

    Thanks

    Hmmm indeed...

    Nothing wrong with the 73 range quality wise, just that they don't seem to fit most people in the same sizes as other makers do (may need to half up or go for a G width etc.) One peculiarity is the "shallowness" (something in common with certain members here) of the last, making them a poor choice if you have a high instep.

    Normally I would say take a punt on getting a pair for $280, and worst case you spend another $60 on sending them back but will still be ahead of RRP when you exchange for your right size. Trouble is, if this is their last shipment then there may not be any of your "right size" left when you return them, meaning you're just out of pocket for postage with bupkiss to show for it (or you have to try and flip them on B&S for a likely bigger loss than you could send them back for).

    Personally, I would only order a pair if you're pretty confident of your size.

    I did. Pretty confident about the fit based on the (admittedly limited) research I did.

    Why don't you try Owen & James? Rob seems like a friendly guy with good taste and his chinos certainly come in some bright spring colours.

    Sorry man, I wasn't ignoring your post. I doubt I'm as knowledgeable about wristwatches compared to others in this thread, so I didn't offer any thoughts. Perhaps others were turned off by your joke that you'll go Señor Chang for their assistance :D LOL

    I own two watches

    and

    [​IMG]

    The first one has a different strap to what's shown. Dark blue calf, flat, no stitching, no padding. I recently bought a new strap for it (burgundy lizard from Hirsch). I wore it for 18 minutes. I don't like it. I'm buying the same blue one I had before. If anyone wants the Hirsch burgundy lizard one at a heavily discounted price - get in touch :)

    I think he said vintage military around WW2... so that necessarily limits his options I think:

    Mechanical, vintage, used, military style.

    More to the point is what style of military is he after - army, diver's, airman's watch...

    Bunny - this something like you had in mind?
