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,

    Fok on behalf of the entire Styleforum team

    The sell Hunter weillies in the women's store. That's what probably confused them.

    Hey Michael, yeah those umbrellas do look good.
    I have been eyeing off a 'London Undercover' brolly (http://www.endclothing.com/ymc-x-london-undercover-internal-print-umbrella.html) which are apparently great...

    Got paid today, so I thought I might try an O&J red chambaray on the reccomendation of all you other SF mob.

    Fingers crossed it does me well.

    I can't really compare with the XL HC and the XL O&J - I am an xs to a small in both shirts :p.

    I think that angle always exagerates how break looks. I often look down thinking it's wrong only to look in the mirror and be quite pleased.

    For anyone looking for anything from Drakes, or maybe a Rubinacci or P Johnson pocket square (at much cheaper than on the P Johnson site), Exquisite Trimmings have 25% off everything at the moment.

    http://exquisitetrimmings.tumblr.co...ff-everything-except-the-hangers-and-the-rake

    Mr Nice Guy Nelson and I both bought the Drakes light grey cashmere tie recently at 20% off. I was very happy with the service and love the tie (do not worry Gerry there are none in stock any more, we did not miss out on an extra 5% off).

    I came across these images from David Reeves the other day on another thread. I notice a few of the American posters didn't really like it and called it "fussy and contrived" . Neat and British style is more what I'd say. I'd say that many of the American posters often look fussy and contrived. But its in a different way. David is dressed more "English" but thats also unsurprising as he is from a UK tailoring background. I'm curious as to what other Australians would see in this photo. I'm not so much concerned with individual items but more in overall impressions of acceptability, costume vs well dressed, trying too hard etc.

    I'd note that its a very American notion to see this kind of fussy and contrived as something to avoid at all costs. Notwithstanding that many of the preferred American dress styles as evidenced on forum threads are in themselves fussy and contrived.

    The Simpson last, to me, is what the C&J '348' last tries so hard to be, but ultimately fails at. For mine, the Simpson is what other sharply angular lasts aspire to be - it's pointed, it's elongated, but without becoming clown-like. It's lovely.

    It's probably my favourite last, without seeing the Vass U in person. It's a shame they don't stock more models in that last on the webstore.

    Correct - lovely last - a tad tight for my fat foot but still comfortable due to the very good construction

    I suspect it is the bloke's face and demeanour. I need to cover his head to give a fair assessment. In an Australian context, the 3-piece looks somewhat at odds with the color of the outfit. Just my 2 cents.
