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,

    Can't help sorry. I will prob do one for winter but it will be a flat bottom, don't do any tipped/pointed end knits I'm afraid.

    They look pretty damn nice. How did you get the sizing wrong? It looks like they give you plenty of 'extra' to let out.

    Are you going to return them, or sell them here?

    Thanks DB so v.happy with herring; annoyed I didn't take the advice to get the herrings ova meermins (gave me to my dad and they fit him perfect...).
    Hopefully I'll soon be making this pair into some 'Dusty Ol' Brogues' :)
    Edit: Just going for my first polish with a wax polish (always used cream before); just wondering if it's okay to polish with wax over a layer of cream (provided will be 30 between layers).

    Yeah, hit up Tobias - I love my forest green tie from him, but you're going to struggle to get it tipped.

    TM Lewin do point end silk knit ties. None in green on their Aussie webstore, but you might be able to call their retail outlet.

    Hmm, let out? I don't really know any competent tailors in Mildura, but it might be worth it to find out. They'd need, like, 3-5cm extra though.

    Contacted them about returns, just want a size up so why bother with selling?

    Pretty sure TM Lewin only does the pointed end in black, burgundy and navy.

    I didn't realise it was only $40 to swap sizes. I thought you might have had to pay $30 postage to send the pair back, plus $30 postage to get the second pair.

    How long did it take for them to arrive?

    Mr Sy I hate to say it - not really that'll be a blatant lie!

    I do believe you have honed yours sights on another red hot purchase at the expense of Lonermat who has by the way presented an interesting perspective of Mildura in his Tumblr.

    How do you sleep at night? Who will the next victim be? There must be a way to stop this abomination!

    Forgive my ignorance, but looking at the image, is the excess material the blue material running down the backside?

    The other dimensions are ok, I think. Thighs are a bit tight (but there's always a bit of stretch I think), but everything else seems fine.

    Not as soft as my OJ Chinos, unfortunately.

    Also: MS, not sure whether I'd have to pay shipping xlots, I assumed so, but we'll see.

    Hober doesn't make knit ties. Because they are machine knitted, you can't really do 1 offs like they specialize in. The factory I use has one of the smaller minimums around, but it's still 8 per colour way. Many factories will only do about 20 per col min.
