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,

    My eyes....Pls.

    Tetburys arrived today. Left fits great while the right is slightly loose, though when I tried them on I was wearing very thin socks, bought these for colder weather so I'll be wearing thicker socks which should take up the tiny play in the right.

    Snuck them into the house without the misso' seeing. Yet. I'll pull them out one day when I've already got the blanket and pillow laid out on the couch ready to go.

    I don't know if it's been mentioned here. I'm sure it has. But B&Tailor is going to be in Sydney in early June. They're also planning a trunk show for the rest of Australia sometime later in the year.

    We are all over it mate. Feel free to post some pics of your commission to whet the appetite of my fellow 'strayans though.

    What I have read so far is very interesting and it is a beautiful book - quite expensive though. My only gripe is it is a book to want to read but is sized as a book you would look at if that makes sense.

    Succumbed and bought one of the items on this year's bucket list. A navy jacket not acquired from an op shop. :)

    Here it is, hot off the PJ presses. It's the Loro Piana blazer fabric, with a bit of a birdseye weave to give it some texture.

    I took time out from baiting Michelle Grattan to read this. Not as detailed or academic as I'd like to see on this site, but interesting anyway.
