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,

    Haha, I'm just playing. Was pretty neat, and seriously, kudos to you for coming up to us.

    Both Gerry and I discussed afterwards that we should have been way cooler about it and asked for the secret password or handshake.

    Put me in the shade with 23 yrs and it didn't cost as she couldn't find anything to her liking, mind you Camberra has a small retail sector.

    MJ leading the attack!

    It's looking very good now. Maybe a follow on?

    MJ on absolute fire! He certainly didn't show apathy when he clean bowled Jimmy Anderson!

    You've got Facebook, you've got Twitter, you've got Tumblr, you've got a telephone, you've got SMS, you've got skype. Can we not have Cricket messages on a clothing forum, please.

    Short messages about Mandela are frowned upon on this forum but long posts on inane sports for spoilt bully boys is fine.

    RIP Shane Warne. The voice of an entire movement of balding middle aged men.

    You will be missed.

    Quick shout out to my main man Paul Walker while I'm here. RIP buddy. Your contribution to cinema has never been more overstated.

    Jesus fucking Christ.

    Your lack of interest in cricket sounds like it matches your lack of civility.

    Cricket is a beacon of peace, and a hope of love and reconciliation of peoples torn apart by decades of oppression and racism. It isn't just the sport of Australia, but of the world.

    Your apathy for Cricket is not compensated by your enthusiasm in suits, shoes or clothes. It should never be, for anyone.

    I have never before called you out directly or publicly on your antics, Foxhound. Today you crossed a line and not only do I bite my thumb, sir, I bite it at you.

    Good afternoon gents

    In regards to ties - Are rep ties symbolic of anything with their colours and stripes?

    I've lost weight, need pants taken in 2-3 inched, will they be salvageable?

    What's your tumblr jim, leaving me hangin?

    MJ 7 wickets - oh yeah

    DB

    Rep ties are representative of in England, private schools and army regiments. The army related ones are normally in the regiments colours for example the Coldstream Guards tie is blue red blue, with the stripe pointing away from the heart. It is considered poor form to wear unit ties if one has no connection to the regiment, school or university.

    I used to wonder why Yankee Rep ties ran towards the heart, according to something I read once it was simply to distinguish them from the British and avoid the issue over colours and their association.

    And if you could please take Jimmy Hoffa for a drive and deposit him in an unmarked grave that would be very good.

    Congrats on the weightloss DB!
    Checked out MUJI today, quite a few summer basics: OCBD's, Linen, shorts, polos. What I checeked out seemed to be rather good I picked up a polo for myself and the cotton seems rather 'thick' and 'sturdy' (as polos come), the collar especially is quite sturdy. The polos came in simple colours (white, navy etc.) as did the shirts (blue, white; also a green I liked a lot). There was also a 90 dollar linen SC/Blazer, seemed nice though didn't get a good look at it, probably somewhat similar to the UNIQLO one SF seems to like a lot.
    EDIT:
    RIP Mandela
    I despise cricket....sorry DB, TBM etc. [​IMG]

    MUJI is a lot smaller than what I imagined it would be. They had more home wares rather than mens/womenswear.

    How'd you go with the fragrances Jim?

    @dusty, grats on the weight loss. having gone through a similar things this year I would say you can get away with sizing pants 2 sizes down anymore than that and you end up with side effects.
