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,

    Mine has a genuine Pacific Star on it issued by the RAAF to the wife's uncle. No name on it as the RAAF just handed them out to servicemen at the time. Still some consternation about this

    And I know its Mothers Day but do i have to get up at 6.30am and put the dog out?

    Mine's not a keyring, as such - I got one of these from Malford of London before they sold out and it is great (although doesn't fit a modern car key, admittedly, so is only used for house keys):

    You could still score one of these:

    And if you want to feel like Bulldog Drummond, you could always pick up one of these (although they cost a pretty penny):

    Just be careful with sizing as the Italian sizing is +1.5 eg 9.5Santoni Italy = 11US

    Yes, Santoni's sizing can be confusing.

    I've got a pair from Santoni's Goodyear-welted "Classico" range, and had another pair from the same range, and I took my usual size in those shoes.

    However, the sizing on the various Fatte a Mano (FAM) models seems to be quite unpredictable. My double monks are an 8, I think, whereas I normally take a UK 9/US 10. They're a little bit narrower than I'd like, but the length is spot on.

    I'd be surprised to see that slide eventuate. This obviously isn't advice tho.

    Problem is that VIsa, MC never pay the going rate of exchange they pay less by a couple of cents on the dollar. :fu:

    Re chinos: I quite like Herringbones 'Jet' chino if you can get them on sale: on the skinny side (low rise also) but the 2% nylon has just enough give.

    Don't pay full price, but nice at 50% off.

    I believe they use the same manufacturer as Howard Yount, FWIW.
