    Agree. Armstrong's remaining defenders are reduced to arguing that more than ten separate eyewitness accounts should be ignored because there is no positIve drug test. That's like arguing a criminal shouldmget off because, despite there being a host of witnesses who saw him do it, there was no fingerprint. It would not happen.

    Also, the USADA has identitied at least 3 positive tests in its evidence. And, if we are going to believe Lance, we have to be prepared to say that someone as respected as George Hincapie is lying in order to frame him. Does anybody seriously believe that?

    BTW, even if Lance does lose his titles, nobody is proposing that convicted drug cheats will be next in line.

    As Plestor said, good riddance. Lance should ponder the fate of Marion Jones, and count himself well off.

    Just received a lovely package from Henry Carter. Light blue PS plus 3 ties (caramel twill, plum grenadine and navy plaid). Thanks Jason!

    hello SF!

    Im looking at purchasing a pair of C&J Hallams from Edwards (cant resist due to code) and was wondering what size I should get?

    I wear a UK8.5 asics kayano running shoe and they are comfortably snug.

    Does anywhere stock C&J's in melbourne where i could try a pair on? I know Loakes are stocked at David Jones but how about C&J?

    thanks in advance!

    If you will forgive me just a tad of self promotion but I think you will have to agree that it rare for a small Australian site to be reviewed in a fairly well read American based online magazine and I thought my fellow Australian members might be at least slightly interested to see how we stood up

    I think it shows that us Aussies can do it as good (obviously I think better but of course I'm very biased) as the rest of the world

    Girlfriend told me last night that all my pants are "too short". Apparently you can "see [my] socks sometimes". Bleh.

    rules are for the ill-informed and lacking confidence

    May I suggest you carry this photo of Simone Righi in your pocket [​IMG]
    No wonder those stores are shutting down in Sydney with advice/service like that!

    I have my first pair of no break pants and am still coming to terms with them.

    Surprisingly, my wife likes them and besides "no one's looking at you / your ankles anyway ..."

    Trousers should always have a break, even if you like them a bit shorter. There should still be a slight break on the shoe, after all you don't want to end up looking like Pee Wee Herman.

    I like Vox's term: a shiver of break.
