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,

    im still using an old herringbone overcoat - cut to the knee, single breasted, military loops on the shoulders in navy and unlined. I think its pretty perfect for our climate and helps wind-block

    Unfortunately the quality isnt the greatest. Its a made in italy piece but the stitching is coming loose in places

    Sounds like a good, sensible outfit for today's weather in Brisbane, too!

    I'm wearing an old Burberry trenchcoat, Loake scotchgrain, wingtip brogue boots with Dainite soles, and carrying a full-stick Pasotti umbrella from Deer Style.

    Even with all of that, I still got a bit damp due to the torrential rain we're having up here!

    That's part of the charm of the HB made in Italy stock in my experience... stitching is not the sturdiest.

    Changed shoes ad nauseum this morning. First dark brown Westburys - couldn't get them on my swollen foot. Next, black Selbournes, before I realised they are slippery as buggery in the dry, let alone the wet. Finally, an old pair of beater Testonis that have just been topyed. Even then I almost fell A over T in my haste to hobble from the car to my building.

    And the moral of today's story is beware of the counsel of the unfortunate.

    Shhhh you don't talk about the masons in public.....

    We have a masonic temple just up the road, all sorts of weird blokes going in there for lodge, including the old german bloke across the road. The plus side is that you get to dress up, they are always in tuxes and apparently there is all sorts of regalia that they wear to the meetings, depending on your rank etc.

    @ Nicholas D C

    My Creed Original Vetiver arrived from fragrancex last night. So it took them 9 days to ship from NY to here, at no cost (using their free69 code).

    I've ended up paying roughly $2/ml for it, which is pretty good. You can do even better if you want a bigger bottle, but I was only after a small amount.

    So looks like you might be OK if you want to jump in. Best to do it before USA starts to block international shipments, like the UK has.

    Slipped on the stairs last week and did a 5cm+ tear in my calf muscle. I'll be on crutches for a couple of weeks at least. Just as I'd got the shoulder in reasonable shape - typical.

    There were a few Poobahs in my family... I used to see these ancient geezers coming out of the Masonic Lodge in black tie with resplendent blue and gold adorned aprons, and necklaces that looked like they belonged to the Lord Mayor.

    All those blokes are dead now and the Lodge is a Ukranian restaurant.

    This and these A&R shows like Cajun Pawnstars/Ricks Renovations amuse me but they one that has got me in is the Romanze Criminale saga (Italian with subts) about the Roman Mafia formation in the middle 70s.

    Just forgot how bad the clothes were in that era in which I grew up.

    Waiting for new series of my usual faves like next Boardwalk Empire series or Sons of Anarchy.

    But then the footie (aka R League) is back so sanity and normality has returned to my life.

    Any thoughts on the Ben Barba stuff? Just Episode 64 at the Doggies ho hum :deadhorse:?
