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,

    I've been eyeing TOJ jackets as well, the collared moto in particular, but the wait is extreme. I'm not even sure what country I'll be in by the time the jackets are done... meanwhile schott has come up with a vintage black 585, which i like very much

    I'll wait till I go to Japan (whenever that may be [​IMG]) to grab a leather jacket; would likely copy Liber and get an A2 and a simple bomber. In terms of purchases I bought a 'ruck-sack' form Urban Outfitters sale, 2 shirts on the way from Luxire and some Gats which are taking forever [​IMG]. Thinking of grabbing some PF Flyers from Amazon on top of that, if anyone has any experience with sizing please feel free to step in.

    PR - have you had stuff made at PJ before? We do not offer CMT to new customers as we like to ensure we dial your pattern and also its not significantly cheaper than using our cloth due to the back and forth freight.

    Once the suit comes back, we do all the adjustments/finishing locally if required.

    Hi Romp,

    I'll shoot you a PM now rather than clog up the thread. Cheers!

    Did you buy your GATS on eBay or through the guy on here that sells them in the classifieds? I need to cop a pair myself.

    GY does tours to Australia, inc Melbourne. I've been tempted to get some different pieces from huddersfield cloth sales, but I have about 10 different lengths of fabric that I don't forsee getting made up soon. im hoping to go to HKG to use peter lee again, or to Singapore for Iris.

    Moths have eaten a hole the size of a 20c piece in a cable knit I own which is a shame. On the sleeve so not too visible.

    What are the prospects of getting something like that fixed? I've never tried to get a knit repaired before.

    Hah - I know the feeling!

    I've got a couple of lengths of cloth from the Huddersfield "cloth offers" that I have to hand over to Rene at Deer Style to have made up into suits. There's just so much good stuff out there that it's easy to get carried away (although not quite as carried away as Foxhound or md2010, though!).

    Knit repairs are easy. Well compared to worsted suit material. Make sure those moths and their eggs have been eliminated from your wardrobe.

    Andrew,

    On your previous article, I've been pondering something the editor of Rake said. He said, "Dressing should be an outer manifestation of the class that lies beneath". I know this is more UK appropriate, but what exactly was he alluding to? That we should not try to dress up, or that we should dress down because we'll feel more comfortable dressing down? He used Jeremy Clarkson and Stephen Fry as an example.

    An interesting question.

    I suppose that the answer hinges on one's interpretation of "class" - does it mean your social level (as it may well be more likely to mean in the UK), or does it mean your particular level of quality, integrity and style (which you could possess regardless of your social class)?

    ^Very nice.

    I'm wearing a brown tie today, too, but mine is a brown grenadine tie, along with an RAF blue cotton jacket, light sand-coloured trousers, a sky-blue and white bengal-stripe shirt and chestnut double monk captoe shoes.
