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 wear Gold Toe socks--merino blend and cotton blend. I have had several pairs for a while now and they are showing no signs of wear--maybe give them a burl.

    Maybe I got a bad batch of Viccels (apparently this was a problem when they first started out). They caught onto my trousers in the beginning, and they 'bit' in too much on the calf. Just not a comfortable sock, that's all.


    Yep, I have a pair of Cheany wholecuts. Very happy with them.

    I heard viagra doesn't even work there.

    Makes no sense why people go there for retirement, then. Or maybe it makes perfect sense. Fuck it, I'm 25, what would I know?

    Especially when 30 minutes away are places that are actually gorgeous in droves.

    Thanks for the suggestion. Do you know if Gold Toe do over the calf?

    They do. There is an ebay seller who sells a lot of Gold Toe, I forget their name, but you should be able to find them easily enough. Should work out to about $10-12/pair from memory.

    Well said, fxh, it continues:

    When I was just a baby, my mum told me 'Son,
    Always be a good boy and don't ever play with guns'
    But I shot a man in Newport, just to watch him die
    When I hear that whistle blowin',
    I hang my head and cry

    I'm dressed rather casually today, in one of Romp's "Owen & James" dark chambray shirts, a pair of beige chinos and a pair of vintage Florsheim longwings.

    So, in the absence of a "what am I wearing today" post, I thought that I'd post a shot of my "daily carry" items (thankfully minus my handkerchief and building pass):

    [​IMG]

    Details:

    - Credit card wallet by Portland St Leather in 227-year-old reindeer hide;
    - iPhone case by Sena Cases (very nice, and they do iPad cases, too); and
    - Omega Dynamic.

    Speaking of 'daily carry' items, does anyone here use a key holder/ pouch (leather)?
    I really need a small and simple one but haven't had any success locally (Melb).

    Found a few expensive ones @ $80+ (http://www.huntleather.com.au/il-bisonte-extra-large-key-bell.html)

    But prefer something like this:

    ... so would also be interested in any 'leather guys' that might whip one up for me

    Mate, try 'Lafite' socks, available at Myer or online. Most are made in Australia and most have a 1 year guarantee! At about $12/pair, that's an absolute bargain.

    Ah, yes. The SENA case. I've had one for years. Actually, a couple over this period. I like them a lot. Except, for the past six months I've gone without a case. No screen protector, no case, nothing. I wage that people aren't good at looking after stuff because I've had no cracked screens, nothing. All works fine.

    I don't have shots of my daily carry, and I'd rather not cop more shit for my coin purse, haha! Instead, poke fun at what I wore today :)

    Hey guys I've wondered how should the arm hole of a shirt fit around your shoulder/underarm?
    I'm assuming with minimal extra fabric but I'm not too sure; as my shirt armholes are definitely high but they leave extra fabric on th back side icky armhole (nearest the shoulder blades).

    P.S sorry if this sounds confusing :p
