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,

    Yes, great night. Will maybe post a few more details later if I get time. Good to see CHECKstar pulling off his Mad Men look (it is those sunglasses).

    In other news, am wearing over the calf socks for the first time today. They feel quite warm, but show no sign of slipping down (which even my best mid calf do a little through the day). Will see how I go through after a whole day.

    And I see there is a new man to fill the pope's red socks (I bet they are over the calf).

    Just to confirm, Kimber's shoes aren't made in Australia?

    Hey Sydney-siders

    Came across this mob on Military Road, Neutral Bay, yesterday:

    http://luxiusshirts.blogspot.com.au/

    MTM Shirtmakers primarily (but they also make suits). Shirts made in South Korea. Some Acorn and Monti fabrics and other smaller Italian and Japanese mills. Shirts apparently start from $109. Monti fabrics start from about $189. Two-week turnaround time for a shirt. Run by a Korean (I think) guy called Patrick Oh. Seems like a nice enough fellow. Quite a few fabrics in store.

    Anyone heard of them?

    I've got some pictures but haven't had a chance to upload them to the blog yet. I expect to do that tonight.

    Good find CEP, shirts look pretty decent for the price. I like this:

    Too tight in the waist--not a great advertisement.

    Bit of Prince Charles style. Linen Db jacket perhaps? Plus very high rise pants and very, very low tie clip.

    ^^Hard to tell with that fabric.

    Just a bit wary of taking the plunge, even at this price.

    Will have to think about it. Maybe start with a cheaper fabric as a test...

    Charlie always looks great, I'd even go so far as to say he is beyond critisicm for things like low tie clips (more practical than a high one) and un-done DB coats (prob for cooling purposes if in linen), simply because he is always so well put together.

    My comment was really more about the fabric but I don't agree with you about the fit. It's cut on the slim side rather than parachutesque, but I wouldn't say too tight. Maybe too tight for some, but it's within the spectrum IMO. The bit of overhang of fabric over the trousers indicates he can certainly breathe or have a big lunch if he wants to...

    And if you have a look at the link CEP posted most of the shirts modelled on a real person are cut similar; none are what I would call "too tight".

    G'day Gents,

    Does anyone have any experience purchasing liquor from overseas (particularly Scotch)? Wodnering if you might have a ballpark figure for any additional duties payable on 2 x 700 ml bottles costing 25 quid each.

    I dare say duties and taxes will be prohibitive, and you will be better off heading to Dan Murph's.

    C'mon, it's pulling at the last button. If he eats a big lunch he'll have someone's eye out
