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,

    My work so it isnt really "business" but rather smart professional. i reckon i could get away with it compared with the worn out hush puppies i see on some peoples feet. As for the belts.... m goodness this upgrading your wardrobe business takes its toll on the wallet. Which by the way i need to upgrade as well.

    Anyone have any experiences with Barker, namely Barker Black, shoes for sizing? I'm a UK9.5e/f and wanted to know if they were roughtly the same as most C&J 9.5

    I'm assuming there is no place in Melbourne where I can try these on (just plain Barkers even)...

    Right, I get you, that's sort of my environment as well. Still, I think I would opt for something simpler, not to mention cheaper and more comfortable in the warmer months, like a Loake chukka in brown.

    For belts, try http://epauletnewyork.com/collections/accessories/Belts for both blue and burgundy - remember, they don't need to exactly match. Just get them in the right ballpark and you'll be fine.

    Jeans are the freaking hardest thing to workout size and cut on the internet, out of any piece of clothing. Then shoes.

    I bought Arabie, at fragrancenet.com. They have a 20% off sale across the board, which brougt the price down to $80. You can get Chergui there for around the same. Shipping is about $25, so still a big reduction from $150 at Mecca.

    Sale goes until midnight 11/02 US time. If you move fast, you might still get in.

    Woohoo! Try them on soon. And wear them to death. Mine have become surprisingly soft (after almost 18 months of irregular wear).

    And to add to Rob's comments - the combination of the skinny lapels, the position of the gorge, and the button stance has created that effect.

    Moving the pocket is not advisable unless you have a very, very sharp eye for balance/proportion

    It's funny - when I first got my 3sixteens, they felt so stiff I thought I could almost stand them up by themselves. Like Nabil, I don't wear them regularly but I find they are getting softer with each wear.

    Who are you having trouble reading DB? I can tell you what kind of person any of the regular posters are.

    Fingers crossed for you, dude!

    Where are the popovers on the site? I can't find them under "Shirts" or "All Products".

    Also, when are you coming down to Melbourne? Your coffee's getting cold ...

    Come on Mr Sy - let's hear it...


    If I recall correctly Owen and James popovers are proving so popular that they have not got around to putting them on their website yet, you just need to PM Rob. I am interested in the pink one (surprise, surprise), but would like some more pictures and details on size and price (and have put on PMing Rob as I know will mean actually buying one instead of just thinking about it).

    Yes sorry - we are getting all our shirt range plus popovers professionally photographed hence the delay.

    You can PM me for a shirt - $155 is standard price however $140 is the styleforum price shipped free..

    Sizing runs the same as our existing shirts - made in New England, same pattern as Sid Mashburn. Chambray is Japanese, the other cloths are New England, USA all pre-washed for softness and pre-shrink

    Popovers are cut shorter to allow you to wear tucked in or out. Full cutaway collar but with a soft non fused German interlining that allow better collar roll

    Small, Medium and Large and come in light denim chambray, pink, white and pale blue.

    These are the best photos I have so far
    Current fabric range

    So what it looks like is that you're just missing someone to model the pink one ... calling Pink Socks ...
