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.

    Swaine Adeney Brigg's are absolutely stunning, but oh so expensive.

    Overrated and a victim of their own popularity. I think Pickett do that style of case better anyway.

    Just had my fitting with Matt at Suitshop, and they now have fabrics from Ariston Napoli!

    Thanks for this JM (and Nabil). Was unaware of the concept.

    Today lbm 1911 navy suit - completely unstructured and unlined . Fabric is great. This is from their tailored range. I have wide shoulder and no padding works best. Shirt ck mainline and carminas .

    Ponting is, I think, 5 foot 10. He looked smaller.

    Very nice. The wool/linen combo is always a good choice

    I dropped in for a peek last week, but not sure if I went to the right place. I kinda saw some hangers through the window from the street, went up through the Von Haus bar but saw no signs upstairs...

    Thanks JimmyHoffa.
    My earlier shirts were very snug. Too snug really. Part of being a bit younger and wanting to show off a little more, I suppose. I've come to appreciate comfort much more now and having clothes that just fit properly. I think it's just part of a natural evolution that most of us go through.

    yeah I quite like that too, classic and not too baggy, looks to be a good size.

    Probably not everyones cup of tea but some of Suitsupplys brief cases are alright for a contemporary look/price point.

    -------

    Possibly not a bold enough brown to be noteworthy but I see MJBale has a brown suit for this season now available too.

    Ponting may be 5'10" in promotional literature but perhaps not in real life. See photo with Pietersen who is big but not that big - bearing in mind for perspective that he is standing behind Ponting.

    Speaking of Suitsupply, what's with their trousers? Measurements seem whacko; smallest waist size on their 'soho fit' is >34"... Am I reading that wrong?

    These came today:

    Ray-Ban RB5154s in a 51/21.

    I'm reasonably happy with them - I think if I had my time again I would have found an optometrist to measure me up and bought a pair of Shurons in the right size.

    Does anyone know where to go for good guidance on glasses? I want to get a pair of new wayfarers and clubmaster sunglasses down the line and I want a really good fit.

    Uhh probably? Seems odd.

    Waist size of their trousers or the jacket?

    Pietersen is well over six foot. Have stood near him.

    Hits the ball scary hard as well.
