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.

    I'm guessing it's the roll when damp then hang method? I rarely iron a casual shirt but I do like starting with an ironed business shirt

    Formula:
    Good cotton (Thomas Mason, Acorn, etc.)
    Very small amount of detergent, no stain remover unless collar is ++dirty.
    Delicate cold cycle with max 600 spin cycle, inside out to protect buttons. Immediate hang on plastic hanger, dry over 1 day (Sunday usually).
    Wear to work the next day without care. Repeat.

    Always indoor drying for me. Every doorknob has a shirt on hanger drying on Sunday (I know someone is going to twist this into some sick, sick joke, but whatevs).
    Outdoor drying always fares for the worse, in my experience, and shirts wear out much faster. I guess that's cool if you go from the frayed collar look that some iGents like.
    I end up saving money and control how my shirts are cleaned, noting the wear pattern over time with the different fabrics.

    Granted, there are some fine creases to start with at the beginning of the day. But I notice that those are gone within 30 mins of shirt wear (by the time I'm at work with the coat off).

    I'll try and talk you into it... I mentioned a few days ago I was surprised at how nice that coat was. Overpriced at $700 but not too bad at $525. I'd seriously consider it myself if I didn't already have a trench coat.

    I have to wonder though why HB are having a sale on stuff that only came into store a couple of weeks ago...

    Just trimmed my beard. I wanted to share this trivial piece of nothingness because, well, no-one else gives a shit really :)

    I think it's becoming increasingly common amongst retailers, PoP. Stuff comes in store, and in less than a month, is reduced. It's silly IMHO -- people aren't stupid and we/they have been trained to wait just a little while and pay less for the item that they want which won't sell out.

    I missed two deliveries today because I had to go to a thing called work, which gives me money for said deliveries. I know one is the latest issue of The Rake magazine (my girlfriend got me a subscription last February for two years). And, I think the other may be the Carmina shoes I ordered. Either that or someone is stalking me and sending me shit I don't want. I hope that either way, it's the Carminas..

    After today's conversation on pocket squares I took this photograph of mine when I got home. Nothing too excited, reasonably modest and I certainly did not buy them in the right order (white linen with piping is a very useful one but was my most recent purchase).

    I wear one everytime I wear a coat or jacket with a breast pocket (overcoats included) and this collection serves me pretty well (got plenty I would like to add to it though).

    I agree. Took a couple of suits there once and watched the woman haphazardly throw them in a bag then toss the bag on the floor. Never went back after that.

    Lovely collection, Pink Socks. A genuinely lovely collection.

    Also a nice way to "change" an outfit without wearing an altogether different jacket :)

    Same here - how often do you shave the neck area and top area when at work?

    Im using Neutrogena Sensitive shaving cream, was on sale. Thought i would give it a try, i am pretty happy with it. Moving forward definitely need to keep with the Gels as I've accidentally shaved too short on the beard when using the cream..

    Also my GF also got me some Lab-Series moisturiser (non-oil), pretty happy with it since i get oily skin.
