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,

    Turning to another pressing matter, why does my latté art always come out looking like a vagina?

    So the Myer-DJ proposed merger brouhaha seems to have claimed a few scalps.

    Interesting to watch. DJs seems to be under enormous pressure.

    Think of it as a Rorschach test. Further analysis required.

    It's bespoke. I think it was the first shirt I ever had made bespoke actually.
    It was made by a tailor in Canberra, of all places. Kim Tran.
    If it helps, the cloth is Acorn, Balmoral (a really nice and comfortable weave if you have the chance to get some) in Plain Sky: http://www.acornfabrics.com/fabrics/balmoral-plain-sky

    Thanks to everyone else for all the positive comments, it's great to have such a positive response.

    Andrew.

    The wool used in the Inverallan MTO is available as "Kilcarra" wool on ebay. But the colours have different names:
    4644 Portnoo is 4644 Wine Red
    4742 Ballyliffen is 4742 Warm Grey
    etc

    Buying enough to make a sweater will get pretty expensive unless you can find a cheaper source.

    I hadn't otherwise intended on actually posting anything for a while, but if showing some additional love betters our chance of getting more top-notch write-ups like this, I reckon it's worth a premature pop of the cherry.

    Haha, thanks! I'm glad I could be your first.

    Comments in the blog or questions there are always welcome too. I'm sure I'll sometimes leave out small things that people might like to know.

    Can only make out a hint of cuff!

    I'm getting a brown sports jacket made up this winter for bumming around the office - hopefully in something light so I can wear it in the summer too.

    Still don't feel its as CBD as navy/grey is, though.

    I still can't understand why they merged. Despite their claims of being under international pressure its not obvious in the market where they're the only major department stores.

    Did the merger even get clearance from the ACCC? Surely it has competition problems written all over it. There are no other major department stores, and who is going to successfully enter the struggling retail market in the foreseeable future? The only other competitors are small boutiques, direct retailers, online stores etc, not to mention the problems with brand loyalty ...

    Quick callout guys to anyone interested in Tom Ford Fragrances. I was trying to line up a decant of Tobacco Vanille through a split purchase by RedDevil (http://www.styleforum.net/t/351904/tom-ford-private-blend-creed-and-amouage-fragrances). Unfortunately a couple buyers fell through so looking for more. I was hoping to get this in time for the wedding so thought I'd spruik it a bit on here in case anyone was interested. Praces are way better than trying to actually pick it up here in Aus. I recall some guys discussing doing this a few months back though I can't recall if anything came of it.

    It's not at that stage yet however it depends on how the ACCC defines the market. If it uses ABS department store sales data then des/myr combined are less than 50% of the market as it includes the discount dept stores Kmart, target and big w.
