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,

    we were going to bring out cords but the honest answer is we couldnt get the quality we wanted at a reasonable price point

    with suitshop my eyes are really being opened to the quality of construction that can be achieved in china so we may steer O&J down that path for certain lines in the future.

    FWIW we have just signed off on a new casual shirting range in OJ which im hoping turn out awesome:)

    Is that why your username is simply "Bunny" instead of "Funny Bunny"?

    (Yes, I crack myself up.)

    I'm sure the latest shirts will be awesome, looking forward to seeing what you guys come up with next. And yes made in China is becoming increasingly like made in Japan, with all the hallmarks of price:quality the latter is known for.

    I picked up some good corduroy trousers recently from Landsend. Reasonably priced as well.

    As an old hand at this i would suggest cooking her a roast chicken dinner with a good bottle of Sav Blanc followed by Chocolate mouse.

    This year as my son is working is the first time I wont have to buy her a mothers day gift. Aesop is always a good choice I guess it depends on how much you want to spend.

    Already been handed a list mate. Facial is at the top of it along with a massage. Plus I'll need to by her something "from" Edith as well, plus my something for my own mum.

    Bloody hell no new Carmina chukka's now may have to get Meermin's instead!

    Don't worry, at least you know what to ask for on Father's Day.

    A few years back, when the children were still babies, I'd drop off my wife at a "spa" place so that she could have a bath/facial/massage/manicure etc while I looked after the children.

    Now that they are a bit older, I help the kids to make breakfast for her in the morning, we all decorate a Mother's Day card, and then we all go out for lunch later in the day.

    Yeah, free time is one of the best gifts you can give.

    And a bottle of Joy doesn't hurt.

    A rule of thumb I use is to have the cuffs made to the same width as the waistband on the trousers (usually 1.5" to 2"). I dunno, it just seems to make sense to me and takes a bit of the guesswork out of it.

    Guys, I really like Sruli Recht (and have for awhile).

    I know it won't go over well, but if I could dress like this, I would:
