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,

    Fok on behalf of the entire Styleforum team

    Carminas from Skoaktiebogalet is about $470 (unless the exchange rate changed dramatically since June)

    As HC said, subtle patterns on a white shirt... pique, chevron, herringbone... They tend to move and breathe better than broadcloth, without being as rough as oxford. Also add a bit of visual interest for the wearer while to everyone else it's just a white shirt.

    Combine with striped tie and charcoal suit... Though in my case the tie will probably be polka dot and the suit a windowpane.

    Wrinkles, doesn't breath or 'flex' well, not versatile, shrinks... It has a lot of drawbacks.

    Poplin is, however, the best if not the only shirt for a dinner jacket.

    What ones are you looking at?

    I wouldn't mind another pair of C&J HG's so if you're keen as well maybe we can see if we can get a small discount from DM.

    As for shirtings I find oxford good for winter poplin summer for work and linnen good for casual.

    The grey sweater is quite a versatile piece of clothing in a man's wardrobe. Where should I start shopping for one? (I'm a slim fit)

    Does Double Monk offer sales over the phone or email for people outside Melbourne? I'm after a pair of C&J and so far my best option is Pediwear.

    Pretty sure DM will ship orders if you email/call them.
