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.

    Is it just me or is there a resemblance to Matt Damon?

    I either get that, or all my friends my age(18-21) say I look like Taylor Lautner. :(

    Too funny.

    Life's hard when I can't find this bloody jacket though.

    Looking everywhere, no one has any smalls or extra smalls. I'm really not keen on a luxire copy, does anyone know any alternatives?[​IMG]

    I'd like to try that Martin Sheen jacket flip but I'm worried I will tear my new Canali.

    Maybe I can rummage around and find an old Tarocash jacket to practise on.

    Hi

    Can anyone give me advice on what size Allen Edmonds belt to get?

    http://shop.nordstrom.com/s/allen-e...her-belt/3178667?origin=fashionresultspreview

    I'm probably a size 37 even though I wear size 38 trousers, some that fit fine and loosely - mostly the latter. My current belt says 38/95 and I wear it in the 3rd/4th hole.

    Also in regards to the trousers, I think a size 36 is too tight for me and I'm not sure how to get the perfect fit.

    Evening Gentlemen (and possibly Ladies that are reading over shoulders),

    First off, a few years back when I last posted I think I asked about barbers and tailors in Melbourne and I got told about Rock It who are great barbers so I just want to thank those that offered advice and help on those matters.

    Secondly, I have a Medical Ball coming up in September - Gatsby themed - just like every soiree that's popping up. I was hoping I could just get some simple advice on whether a Classic, clean cut Tux is what is in order or could I just pick a look from the movie/early '20's and roll with that?

    Thanks for any help offered
    woop

    P.S. keep up the excellent banter

    I've got a Gatsby function this Friday and I'm going like this:

    However, I reckon a classic tux will be just fine.

    That would be awesome to go like that and you'll certainly look the part, I don't have the stature to pull something like that off.

    I was thinking something along these lines initially,

    Especially since I don't own a Tux... Yet

    That will be your Hollywood looks again Mr Nelson. You going to shave down to the pencil moustache?

    Sid Mashburn of the famed Atlanta store designed the original J Crew Barn Jacket (if memory serves).
