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.

    Maybe checking out her followers and who she's following might shine more light on this.

    Me and a mate have just done 5 Opshops (and a booze shop). Nothing. Zero. Hopeless.
    If I was a 44 and wanted a Canterelli DB suit or a Zegna 44 DB PoW perhaps.... or two nice beige full monty Inspector Gadget DB overcoats.......some nice Italian made pale grey proper/real flannels - but had small moth holes

    Silly silly Salvos want $14 for a obviously worn out Van Heusen shirt

    the lighting on the zegna is a bit off - it's black not dark brown.

    sliq - I have too many ties I don't wear - ~ 120+ -
    [​IMG] [​IMG][​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    so I don't buy now unless its spot on or a "collectors item" like the tartan type one I posted the other day.

    But in many, not all, and usually not Salvos, theres a cheap way to get a good tie selection going.

    LOL sounds like a regular conversation with the boy, except when he wants to talk about football, sentences are at longer

    No, I believe every second word has to be "like", like.

    Osiris: burgundy cordovan on the Simpson last. Not quite G&G St James but has a similar look.

    Can anyone recommend a local source for some Nantucket red-esque shorts? Seems like everyone is doing a similar shade at the moment, but of the ones that I tried, they were either badly cut (Tommy Hilfiger), poorly finished (French Connection), or heinously overpriced (Ralph Lauren).

    I instead came home with a pair of these grey seersuckers from Country Road:

    http://www.countryroad.com.au/shop/man/clothing/shorts/seersucker-stripe-short-60160370

    I'm not quite sure what to wear them with, I was wearing a white polo when I tried them on which looked fine but I'm afraid they might be a bit too monochrome...
