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.

    It's the actual spivs you have to be worried about up there, more so than what they are wearing.

    Concur with 1) and Mr Nice Guy can you shout me this time regarding 2).

    Seriously, thanks for the compliment TBM.

    Very happy with my Kimber boots - a great local choice.

    In terms of colour, my first pair of chukka boots were brown suede and they go well with many outfits, so if you are looking for something versatile get those.

    Aside from Kimber, C&J have 3 nice models (which I have discussed in detail before), Carmina have a lovely style and others here have Loake and Herring ones that look great.

    The bottom line is a chukka boot is a very useful shoe and worth getting. Who knows, maybe you too could look as good as Gerry and me (that first part is the real challenge, I am sure you outdress me already Oli, esp with your large collection of Henry Carter ties).

    That made no sense ... Bumped into Gerry by complete chance a little earlier today in Henry Bucks ... He looked really good. Some man for one man.

    Mother of God.

    Might grab a cheeky pair.

    I like the Kimber ones, but the colours aren't basic enough for me (although the grey is tempting).

    If you are planning on checking out the Great Barrier Reef, I highly recommend you do this from Cairns. The reef can be accessed from other places in QLD such as Townsville, Mackay, Rockhampton, etc. However, having previously lived in North Queensland (and in a rival city: Townsville), I feel Cairns offers the best value as you not only can you can visit the reef, but you can also check out the Daintree Rainforest, Atherton/Tabllands. It's quite amazing as you have the reef on one side, and a beautiful rainforest on other. You can take a scenic train up through rainforest up to a small town called Kuranda, and then come back to Cairns via Cable Cars, or vice versa (this is a day trip). In the cable cars, there are stations which you can stop at on the way, and at these places you can learn about forest, walk around and check out scenry and wildlife. Makes for a great day out!

    Other things do include visiting Tjapukai Aboriginal Culture Park if you are interested in learning about the Australian Indigenous Culture. One of the cool things is learning how to throw a boomerang. You can tour rain forest in army ducks, hot air balloon rides, visit Port Douglas, etc.

    One last thing, Cairns does have an international and domestic airport; going back to Sydney will be no problem. If you only have one day to spend in North QLD, in my opinion, it doesn't matter too much as to whether you go to Townsville or Cairns. Snorkelling can be arranged, if not you can take a tour on a glass bottom boat or semi-sumbarine (this is a lot better!)

    If you want more info, feel free to PM. I live in Brisbane (QLD) now, which is in South Queensland, and can offer advice if you are planning to visit this region as well.

    Any recommendations from the Melbourne/Victorian boys for a quality tailor for jeans and suit pants without breaking the budget? East/south-east suburbs if possible.

    Would like jeans slimmed calf down and hemmed and suit pants slimmed throughout the leg.

    On another note, thanks for the advice offered here apropos. I ended up purchasing myself a Zenith Captain Chrono watch in stainless with a silver face and gold hands. And I'm mighty impressed with it - it's a beautiful watch offering wonderful symmetry (when compared with the Captain Windsor series of watches).

    I'm not a fan of the JLC reverso series I saw, so that made the decision somewhat simpler, although there was an IWC Da Vinci perpetual calendar from about 1990 on offer at a second hand dealer in Lt Collins St which tickled my fancy for a small while thinking about the intricacies of the movement, but the styiling was dated enough to rule it out of contention.

    Greetings. Blossoms are out.
    A highlight for Melbournites. Got PASMO train card at airport from machine with no language skills and it was easier then getting a MYKI. To add insult to injury I can use the Pasmo in stores and machines to buy stuff. Highlight. Buying a HOT can of coffee from a street machine in cold weather with PASMO card.
