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,

    Would Vass be considered superior to C&J handgrade or are they considered to be of a similar quality level?

    Balmain is A-class, maybe mini cooper at best.

    If you think Woollahra is money, then you should see Cashmerelahra.

    I see. Very useful information, thanks.

    I'm size 42" so hopefully the Large will fit me.

    Better, definitely.

    However, they're also harder to obtain, they take longer to get, and it's more difficult to figure out how lasts like the U-last and K-last will fit you as you can't go down to Herringbone, American Tailors or Double Monk to try them on.

    Thanks for the info guys, those are pretty strongly in favour of Vass so Vass it is. Regarding the sizing very good point JM, but so far I've had to apply the same methodology (research, inferences, cross fingers) to all my online shoe purchases and its fortunately worked out well so far.../touch wood.

    Fantastic. Another opportunity for someone out there to pay someone like me to develop a system to swipe these.

    Can't see this particular chip based suiting taking off but its something very simple and it gets them publicity so tip of the hat to them.

    I can't wait till cash becomes obsolete, I detest carrying around notes and coins are the worst. Strip clubs and parking meters are the only places where the loss of physical currency will be felt. In the case of parking meters should all just be through the phone or card anyway like it is in Brissy and elsewhere and in the case of stripclubs even then I think you could develop and cross platform app to add some fun and gamification to forking over your one dollars.

    Beautiful shine, Dartagnan Red. Compliments!

    Fellow Melbourne folk, I checked out Emporium today. By that I mean I went to Uniqlo. It was crazy busy and I felt claustrophobic so I left. I'll go back during the week for socks. They have some of the MIJ selvedge jeans for $60 but the cut doesn't suit me. The overall complex looks a lot like Westfield Sydney city, the one with Harrold's, etc. My girlfriend also adds that, "the hoodies for women are better at H&M than Uniqlo, because the unisex cut at Uniqlo is too masculine.." And she thinks we men are picky!

    Have a good Saturday night, gents.
