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.

    Yeah not 100% sure, but if I get the meeting with Matthew Start that I'm chasing re WFS stuff then I might find out. He has a Cambridge email address but as I understand it heads up Joe Black in Australia so tends to indicate a close affiliation of some sort.

    Yes it's awful! It also illustrates what an exception Robert Downey Jr. is - to be able to pull himself out of addiction like that.

    Hi Diplomat,

    As far as I'm aware the best alterations tailor in Canberra is TT's Fashions, upstairs in Baileys Arcade on London Circuit. Never had sleeve buttons adjusted but for basic work on trousers and jackets I've never had a problem.

    I go see Tuan at TT too, have done for about 15 years and know him very well, but sleeve buttons is probably a bit outside his comfort zone unless you just want them sewn on with no fake stitching etc. A&V tailors in Garema place are good but pricey too, they did all of Herringbone's alterations when I was there. Just don't let them talk you in to getting hand stitched working button holes, they wanted to charge my brother $300 to do it.

    At last, clear evidence of global warming. According to this, a hundred years ago you still might need an overcoat if you were heading out in the Australian summer.*

    *(I'm assuming it's Australian given the "summer season" spans 1906-7...)

    I'm not sure - I assume its Australian but theres no indication other than the dates point to summer being over two years. I'd be guessing even if its Australian that the patterns and illustrations would be nicked straight out of a UK publication - but I might be wrong.

    Heres the front cover - I cant decide what the logo letters are yet. B & S Co. I think or S & B Co.:

    MJ Bale's Autumn/Winter catalogue has been released. Some interesting stuff, but overall a lot of repeats.

    Nelson Mandela, even beyond the grave he is still highlighting the shortcomings of certain people.

    Pretty much last chance for anyone that wants to help Wear for Success in their fantastic charity work by coming along to #DressedtoKill, ticket sales shut down tomorrow.

    If you need more incentive than food, drink, Bond, helping those less fortunate and an excuse to dress up we'll also have some Bond-esque door prizes.

    Henry Carter have kindly donated a couple of very Bond ties.

    Beggar Man Thief are supplying a lovely pair of Grensons.

    Very limited capacity to change our booked numbers now, so you'll have to get in fast if you are coming.
