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 thought once you're at a 120 Australian marino you're essentially over the line? (I know you can go higher, but not without the garment wearing out easily).

    Super 100's are more than fine if a good quality cloth. Some of my best suits over the years have been made from it (dormeuil, H & S etc) Hard wearing and holds a crease much better. All the 140's and above are just wanky numbers to sell suits to rich blokes.

    Bah humbug.

    Having worked in schools over the globe I can tell you that kids don't care about the commercialism of Halloween. (Or anything fr that matter). They just enjoy dressing up.

    Hardly think men who spend all day would care that kids like dressing up like a princess or Spider-Man. They probably would talk about our mass consumerism and focus on brands.

    Or they would just have fun like kids do. We should take a leaf out of their book.

    On the plus side, I have enough facial hair for parents to stop their kids from asking me for chocolate. They don't want my milky chocolatey treats...

    Sweet find!

    Yeah, the 15oz turned me off..

    Looking at J Brand and they seem decent - but jeans are one thing I won't buy blind.

    I'd walk into a store, try them on, have a chat about it with the salesperson; and if it turned out to be a helpful and educational experience, I'd pay the difference between the in-store and online price. It would have been money well-spent.

    How are the tapered 3Sixteens, Romp?

    I bought my J Brand in a store called Pierucci on Chapel Street, Melbourne...no use to you but they are stocking in Australia. David Jones have some (but I have only seen them in the women's section so far...not that I tried those ones on....).

    Do you know a stockist for Baldwin here? Incu Clothing might be a good option, though I sure there are others with better suggestions.

    Guys not to steal thunder from the halloween discussion but could I get your opinion on those orthotic allen edmonds recommended to me earlier - which is most applicable for frequent 1-2 a week work wear (suit and tie, but commando)

    Just going for a black pair for now. For brown I just want a pair of chukka boots, and anyway, will be more comfortable buying AE again once I know my fit and size... as luck would have it, Christian Kimber sold out of his brown chukkas, but they look pretty nice in the pic tho... wait is until Jan...

    I went on a hunt for exactly what you're looking for last year, Nabil. Turned up very little.

    I'm in no hurry, so maybe when I'm down in Melbourne sometime I'll take a look.

    I'll check out the General Pants, Incu and Glue Store websites.

    I've checked Someday / Somewhere / Someplace too.

    Thanks, PS.

    There are plenty of super skinny options which are.. well.

    Fair enough....I am sure you know more places than me...I cannot remember what the general consensus on APC were but these looked OK to me (maybe too slim).

    Wow I missed the Halloween party busy watching Beetlejuice one of Tim Burton's early films loved the use if stop motion animation.

    I enjoy watching kids have fun, nephews nieces ect but I have to ask what parent in their right mind would let kids out to partake of an uncontrolled processed sugar hit at that time of night with school the next day, I saw enough sugar induced carnage after my sons birthday parties.

    LM as for my anti American comments I give you this ( alleged) exchange between General MacArthur and General Blamey in New Guinea in 1942 after the advance against the Japanese had been stalled.

    Big Mac " if you were an American I'd court-martial you"

    Blamey "if I was an American I'd bloody shoot myself"

    APCs are alright - good value for money if you value things like a low-profile, no label, decent denim.

    The trouble with them is that they stretch by about 2 sizes.

    I've had a pair of New Standards, and they're fairly loose from the knee down, for me. Requires a substantial amount of shortening.

    I've also had a pair of Petite Standards. They're not bad either. Great from the knee down. Trouble with them previously was that to fit my thighs, I had to size up on the waist. Now that the waist of the jeans has stretched (and my own waist has shrunk), they're unwearable. Not even with a belt.

    The question is, is it better than watch discussion.

    Fair enough Nabils - even weight loss has its negatives...

    Another quick question - which Nike Flyknits do you have? I remember they looked great.
