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,

    Nice tie Gerry....:)

    I'm astonished there is no Canberra one.... Jokes

    I might upload one next week when I'm back at work. I assume you can enter more than one or not?

    I must say, being back in Sydney I hit up ryan's bar last week in the CBD and realised that this is a city of very very beautiful women....

    I wondering if what the Prince of Paisley means is the watch is to thick and not the width being a problem is what he means by to bulky ??

    It looks as though you can upload more than one shot to the Mr Porter site, as I noticed that Christian Kimber has a couple of shots.

    I have no idea about the uploading process, though - do you do it yourself, or is it selected by someone else, or by crowd acclamation?

    I stumbled upon this article from the New York Times magazine the other day, and thought it worth posting a link here:

    The Circus of Fashion

    It's about the rise of the fashion blogger and how more and more people are "peacocking" around outside fashion shows, particularly during the big fashion weeks.

    Whilst the article is primarily about women, it really reminded me of the ridiculous outfits that we see people wearing during Pitti Uomo - in essence, they are deliberately donning costumes so as to attract attention and (hopefully) be photographed. Unfortunately, however, there are people out there who see those photos posted and reposted on Tumblr and who then adopt those looks for themselves.

    Apparently, the article has created a bit of a stir online, with some people supporting the views put forward in the article (there are too many ridiculously-dressed fops swanning around etc etc) and others panning the article (the democratisation of fashion, rise of street style, etc etc).

    I entered three and one got picked. What you need to do is to tag your instagram photos with #MRPORTERGS and #CANBERRA or #BRISBANE or whatever city you're from. I just went back to some of my old photos on Instagram and added the tags in a comment.

    It's not an automatic load - somebody actually selects them. I entered three and one got picked.

    This dude (from Melbourne) has 224 votes so far:

    Even the guy in the Oh My Goth t-shirt has 26 votes [​IMG]

    One got picked up in about 20 minutes or so. I reckon it's also the time difference, Rob. It's probably someone over in the UK who's doing it so expect to see yours up later today - don't fret.

    Just a quick question -

    Is something like a 70% cashmere, 30% silk tie from Howard Yount going to be as good quality as a 100% silk? What characteristics does the cashmere bring?

    And what about a 100% wool, or 90% wool, 10% silk tie, steer clear or? I'm guessing more casual if it's wool?
