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,

    Why do you need to be sorry in the face of rudeness and boorish behaviour? I would have answered you easily except I have no experience with MTM nor P Johnson in Australia. Some people are having a bad day and taking it out on you in a cowardly way- anonymously through the internet, shouting in CAPITAL LETTERS, and some idiot deems it appropriate to reinforce that. Sounds very much like schoolyard bullying to me.

    There is no need to be sorry if you did jack all wrong.

    ^^ I agree, no need to apologize.

    btw, although I'm not a fan of Tracy Grimshaw, watching her interview the Sydney DJ's boggles my mind. They still do not admit that they crossed a line: "It's not up to us to decide what to do with the prank call. Someone else decides on that."

    Exercise some common sense, or bad things happen.

    Anything and everything so far - Aspesi, Boglioli, Filson, Alpha. I haven't eliminated anything yet since I'm still doing my research.

    I'm watching Supernatural at the moment - been watching it from the beginning. This is a scene from the episode I'm watching now:

    I just realised something - I've just bought a trench and a peacoat (from the original owner and made in the year I was born!). I guess it's only natural that I should be looking for a field jacket!

    Presenting a point of view with justifiable rationale does not equal 'schoolyard bullying'. Welcome to SF.

    And no, don't apologise, I think it's good to generate some healthy debate, even if it is deviating towards negativity.

    I lol'd, come on dude.

    What exactly is the debate being generated?

    And what is your so-called "justifiable rationale"?

    If you think:

    A) shouting in CAPS;
    B) repeating the shouting in CAPS;

    constitutes presenting point of views, I suggest a possible career path as a radio jockey. God knows they need more of you.

    I feel so relaxed and calm.

    Dartagnan, thanks for not showing me the Il-Bisonte wallet. And who the hell is your friend, that you are giving this too? Better not be anyone from your workplace [​IMG].

    Looks like I am not getting the Rubinacci pocket square after all :(. Damn I was looking forward to that sexy Mother******.

    BTW

    Now that we are talking about P Johnson again, has anyone seen his new loafers?

    http://www.pjohnsonshop.com/collections/loafers/products/black-and-white-woven-shantung-silk-tie

    Damn, I have years to go before I put a loafer that looks like that in my wardrobe. That looks terrible. I now see what you guys were talking about with Apolis, and some stuff being absolute crap and others being golden. Cearly P J should stick to suits!

    P.S Streetminimal is a nice guy, he can also be a douche. We've knocked heads before ;).

    I saw the post but they're all out of my size everywhere I've looked, e.g. http://www.buzzricksons.com/type-65-combat-jacket-p-139.html

    Why do you say it's amazing?

    Nice fit. You've been following Foo's "no white shirt with pure white PS" advice, I see.
    btw, did anyone catch vox's commentary on the "great debate" on tumblr? I don't understand why he would delete those golden posts.
    btw, deets please

    That looks beautiful. I got my Ettinger wallet a little cheaper than that new with tags on eBay but that is. really quite lovely. Thanks.

    In regards to P Johnson pricing search this thread for some ideas and there is a P Johnson thread too. Just bear in mind that it really does depend what you order. The guys at P Johnson in South Melbourne are great and will happily help by telephone or email.

    Gerry im sitting back and waiting for you to find the M65 because I spent all winter looking for a decent one and no luck (I didnt roll the dice on aspesi which was the best option). I might just go get a bunch made for O&J just to satisfy having one. Shall we say Navy + Green ? I reckon grey would be sick too. OK ive just talked myself into it .. let me find some M65's at Pitti this january and ill bring you back something .. lol what just happened

    Those booties are sick ... I was chatting to patrick about these for ages. I want a custom pair. Ill need to wear my watch outside my cuff with my new white popovers too to rake it up:)

    PS popovers landed and cleared customs and look AWESOME. Friends and family already cleaned 9 shirts off me before Ive even had a chance to photograph them... stay tuned
