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,

    DR calling it - Mr Nice Guy cannot dress...and this barely a week after Tobiasj shattered the myth of him being a nice guy too.

    Might as well give away your shoes and ties Gerry...

    Bastard.

    A pair of Do-Wins will set me back $140. Then I've gotta get them shaved to 0.5" [​IMG]

    Notable by absence and a must for internet sprazz.

    1: no ciggarette visible
    2: trousers appear to actually touch shoes
    3: shoes do not appear to be suede slip ons or undone double monks
    4: strong suspicion the model, GN, is wearing socks

    No doublebreast
    No bracelets stolen from 9 year-old girls
    Only one pocket square

    Not #sprezz at all. Failing at life. Must kop more #SF trends.

    I saw some amazing sprezz on York Street (Sydney CBD) today around 6pm.

    A guy in swimming trunks walking down the footpath.

    Swimming trunks. That was it. No bracelets, no pocket square, no half-undone jumper boots.

    Just swimming trunks.

    Did they look okay?

    Nabil was the only one that proposed swimming trunks - Orlebar Brown. At 135 pounds a pair, surely we can find a good substitute?

    Oli, I think that PS is talking about his bare feet - he doesn't have a pair of weightlifting shoes, as he lifts when shoeless. (Hopefully, he wears something on at least some of the other parts of his body!)

    I don't now that I'd consider myself an oldie,but I reckon yo'd think I am, so... I think it depends on what your intention are for wearnig the pants. Being SF, I'm guessing it's not for working in the yard on a Saturday morning, which it what the buckskin colored pants scream out at me. This could be the result of years working in heavy industry messing with me though. The bone pants look (to me, on this tablet screen) more verssatile in terms of what you could team them with, and much less like you're off to do some gardening. PS: This is the same reason I wont wear navy chinos - too close to cotton drill work pants...

    I would go Bone but only if your going the full rig eg Gloster shirt with twin breast pockets worn with RM Macqurie polished to GN standards.

    This aligns with what the missus and I call the Sydney Scenario - random people walking in the CBD and inner city in what is essentially beach wear. Often when it is raining.

    I'd wear either colour, they are pretty close on my monitor. It's a pretty popular look for the farmers that come in from out of town where I live just over the border from Canberra now. Like GF said, with brown RM's and checked shirt or an oxford.

    Painful gym staff hover around and tell me I can't deadlift with no shoes on. Hardly a safety issue as you'd do well to drop the bar on your feet (not that a pair of runners would help anyway...).

    Where do you lift PS?

    I didn't even know (or rather hadn't really thought about it too much) there was such a thing as lifting shoes. I do my deadlifts in a pair of very old thin/flat soled squash shoes.
