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.

    For "made in North America" gear, you could also try American Giant:

    http://www.american-giant.com/men/heavyweight-sweatshirts.html

    Land's End also had some good, US-made cotton jumpers, track pants, fleece shorts and t-shirts for a while but they've run out of stock, unfortunately.

    Speaking of Land's End, they're having a sale on trousers at the moment, so if anyone's interested in picking up some inexpensive trousers, have a look:

    Better be quick email I got this AM states sale ends today. Also in my experience LE tends to size small in the waist in their trousers.

    Managed to duck into the R&B half year warehouse sale, or as I like to think of it, the half year pocket square clearance. Standard clearance pricing. As usual, not all that much of interest for those of us with discerning SF tastes other than the occasional pocket square ($9) and knit tie ($35). Didn’t even bother looking at the suits, shirts and knits. Managed to pick up pick up the only knit tie that I came across, along with two new pocket squares and a silk scarf for the significant other.

    I think that from over the last few years of R&B sales, my pocket square collection is now 90 percent R&B!

    Anyone check out the Herringbone pop up sale thing in Sydney? Got an email about it yesterday but deleted it. In Martin place maybe can't remember.

    I didn't really see anything on there that was similar?

    Concerning American Giant, I've read numerous times that sizing sucks, and I'm really not a fan of the huge ribbing.

    Was going to check that out tomorrow perhaps, with the same expectation of knit ties and pocket squares. The only R&B stuff I own! They'll likely all be gone by then though, with the SF vultures descending upon it :)

    It's even a bit dicey for work wear. If you have a job where suits are the norm, IMO there's nothing inherently wrong with contrast cuffs/collar, provided you have the personality to pull them off. It's a 'hard' look but as long as you bear that in mind... and they should be worn with suits only IMO, not slacks and odd jacket.

    As for wearing them 'out on the town'....

    I can just imagine trying to convince my wife of the wisdom of that purchase:

    Wife: "You paid $25 000 for a jacket?!?!?!"
    Me: "But, honey, I *saved* $35 000 as it originally cost $60 000."

    Henry Bucks Collins St sale started at 8am this morning, anyone been in for a look yet?

    Might pop down at lunchtime just to frustrate myself with what I'd like/can't afford/would have to hide from the missus/etc...

    According to the email I got, the sale starts tomorrow. Are you referring to some sort of pre-sale?

    Just saw the announcement on Facebook that it starts today and saw someone walk past with a sale bag. Try your luck.
