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,

    Fok on behalf of the entire Styleforum team

    Dropped by Henry Bucks in Melbourne today and had a look at their Carmina range (not the biggest range it must be said, but made for them and it does cover what I'd agree are the most likely half dozen or so buys). First time I've actually tried on Carminas. Discovered the Forest last is a very good fit for me, which makes me more confident in online orders (Bucks has enough of my money over time that I think they owe me this one case of using-the-store-for-online-fittings... heck, I got a half dozen pairs of shoes shined up there during the Christmas holidays). The update to the store looks good too.

    I think I may have been one of the first, if not the very first, to kop one of the new Henry Carter pocket squares.

    Actually I kopped two squares and a tie.

    Re b&t, i believe from july on. To be honest, out of my justifiable price range, but seem reasonably priced. I've heard low to mid 1000s for sportscoat. Well, reasonably priced for a tailor with such a pervasive global presence, at least.

    A good buddy of mine will be representing Bn tailor in Australia. I am fortunate to have a few suits and jacket made by Bn tailor in the past. It's really nice stuff. He post here in the past under @incontro

    Hi T, are they coming to Melbourne and Sydney, or just Sydney? Any idea yet on price range?
