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,

    Not sure about the solid pale blue shirt, guys. Royal isn't as dark as navy and the shirt might overpower it.

    Also, given that you might stick around till evening, white might be a safer choice.

    Do you have a shirt with white ground and veeeery pale blue stripes?

    Pale blue - then when it gets dark - slip out to car and put on the fresh ironed white shirt you have hanging in the back of the car.

    Ducking out to change gear is the bride's job. Mine is to ensure the red doesn't go to waste. :)

    Folks I want to update you on the resolution to my DHL saga. I got this email today from Mr Porter


    Please accept our apologies for your most recent experience with DHL. Your comments have been noted and we have been in contact with DHL to try to prevent this from occurring again in future.

    We have looked into your tracking which indicates that you now have your order. Therefore if there is anything else we can assist with please do not hesitate to contact us.

    In the meantime we have refunded the original shipping charge of 20 GBP back onto the credit card used to make the purchase. We hope this has not discouraged you from shopping with us again in future.


    Now there's a company that understands service!

    No no, it's just the fabric, the button positioning, the phase of the moon! :D

    Today's gear. Second time not wearing a suit to work. Comments included 'What's going on here? Are you off to the Long Room (a bar in the CBD for the non Melbournians) or something?' and 'I don't think blue and grey go together'. [​IMG]

    (no PS today)

    I'm not 100% ok with the HY pants (brushed twill) simply because they are more textured than I was expecting and the jacket appears to have quite open quarters - what is the cause of this? The buttoning point? It doesn't seem that high when I look in the mirror but these photos seem to suggest otherwise.

    I agree completely with you Pop. The shirt is actually cut quite well, imo.

    Dennis looks excellent.

    I can't believe Andrew is Checkstar. Was not expecting that.

    Lennier as Nathan looks good too.

    All look very smart.

    A few crossed wires there Mr Sy but never mind. All in all there was some fine dressing last night, not least by the Aus Members crowd.

    Oh and CD white for the wedding for mine, just a little more formal. Though I like fxh suggestion best.

    Sorry Pink.

    I have never pm'ed or spoken to either, so that is just from putting together what other people have said! I could be wrong. If I can work it out, anyone can. It is like being shot for pointing out the elephant in the room! Anyway, I think it is worthwhile complimenting people where it is due.

    Pissing off a lot of people lately. Such is the characteristic of the righteous.

    Liked your pink and white socks a few pages back. Wanted to say it there and then but it didn't warrant its own post :).

    Praise for pink socks def warrants its own post.

    I was not criticising, just saying that you have not quite got it right. Not going name anyone as I have no idea how much they would like to be know of themselves. All well and good for people you have met in real life.

    I for one tend not to reveal too much of my identity (actually Christian keep jokingly referring to me as Batman for this) but that just me. Quite like just being able to discuss clothing without all my details being known.

    Others, (Nice Guy Gerry, thebrownman, Jason, Romp come to mind) are all dashing enough (or not so paranoid) to photographs of themselves. Even you using your real name...actually I am really called Pink Socks.

    Anyway, leave the (bespoke linen with patch pockets) masks on. But feel free to take your socks off (except when fxh is around, show some respect!).
