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,

    Either you've got balls, or I am seriously out of touch.

    This is where the (great) blahmans expertise is needed.

    (I thought I saw him on boxing day stalking Hello Kitty girls in Zara or was it Starbucks.)

    PoP - you old fart!

    I'm hip to what the young people do these days. So swan - what last are they on and what did the girls at work say?

    All bullshit aside - swan - I'd be genuinely interested to see some shots of what you wear these with and in what context.

    This thread tends to lean heavily toward "tailored" clothing - even for casual - and a bit of different streetwear and discussion (I do sincerely hope they aren't paired with a suit for work) wouldn't go astray.

    Currently in HK, feels like an oversexed man in a harem.

    Shoes and shoes and shoes.

    There are 2 Berluti shops, and a third will be opening soon at the Elements. Luckily for my wallet, none of the Berluti last fits me perfectly, so I am spared HK$18k (AUD$2200) for each pair. Problem is the leather briefcases are exquisite and costs over AUD$3500 each.

    Tassels has very low selection of Bontonis after running their sale early. Even at full price, I am beginning to find that the Bontonis are really quite good value for money. Each pair about AUD$900. Believe you me, they are exquisite. Wallace at Tassels was good enough to walk me through their special Edward Green (build specially for Tassels). The 206 and 888 lasts fits perfectly.

    Ethan at the Armoury is his great usual self. Naka was not around. Alas, whilst Carmina Simpson last is beautiful, it is too narrow for me. Thankfully, the Rain last fits me perfectly.

    I managed to snag a pair of John Lobb Paul Smith collab oxfords in dark purple museum calf. Again, luckily for my wallet, none of the other John Lobb's lasts fits me well. Over here, the JL misty calf oxford will set you back HK$14000 (AUD$1750).

    Lots of A. Testoni shops around. Really overpriced for the shoe quality on offer. Also saw some Corthays (unbelievably beautiful), and some JM Weston ( a bit unexciting after all the earlier excitement above).

    Will head to Bangkok next, then on to Paris.

    Happy New Year all! Fireworks in Melbourne this year looked pretty non-eventful compared to last year!

    I had a look at American Tailors and MJ Bale today - some good stuff, especially the shoes in American Tailors! If you can spring for a pair and they have your size, now's the time.

    Honestly don't know maybe the Philadelphia. They are 10EE which suggests an easy fit when I am 10F/10.5E but I think a 9.5F would like them better. PM me and I'll send some pics

    Checked it out - yep, add my mind to the blown category - there was this 11 or 12 girl group which was pretty... epic.
