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 wonder if this wool would be suitable for pulling over eyes?

    Oscar Hunt has released their new Winter 2014 Campain. It looks great, definitely need to pick up one of their overcoats.

    Foxy this looks great, I'm so keen to try these guys out. Your last few commissions coupled with this have really made me a fan. Next time I'm in Melb I'm definitely going to have these guys a go!

    At the risk of stirring up a settling hornets nest, oh who am I kidding it's still buzzing, this PC crap is unbelievable. Besides the point that the ties are $200+ for 'Vintage' garish ties which no matter how they are printed are amazingly popular on this forum. This is nothing new from 80% of the businesses we get to deal with.

    As a side note I'd just like to respond to Jason's concerns re affiliate status and Henry Carter - your products speak for themselves, having owned a number of your ties and scarfs your shit is EXCELLENT! Not to even mention your level of customer service and attention to detail. I hope up keep up the membership if only for the AU ppls in this thread.

    Also I'm now in heavy bespoke envy thankyou Andrew... I had never even considered having anything made at Cutler until now. Thankyou for the burning hole in my pocket :p.

    I'd try ironing it out flat and see where the canvas fold by itself or getting it professionally pressed. Just make sure that you are explicit with the drycleaner and that you trust them/have used them before I've had so many suits poorly pressed I do it myself these days.

    Saw it when I was back in Scotland for Christmas. Cried my eyes out.

    Went to see the stageshow with my best mate just before moving out here...6 years ago today.

    The Proclaimers song Sunshine on Leith is the club song of my football club, Hibs (whose season when dramatically wrong this year).

    Nothing better that being in the stand at Eastern Road hearing the song get belted out -

    Oh, sorry, you got me a lot nostalgic...got a bit carried away there....

    I would find it hard to listen to a whole album of that.

    Very worthy and interesting though.

    Luke, you have one bipolar jacket there. Can only echo what others have said, get someone to try and turn it into what you want.

    Don't beat yourself up about it.

    You remember the old Thriller video clip, where the zombies emerge from the ground and start dancing?

    Don't see the logic of it myself, some interesting songs but spoiled by the sound of the production process.

    Anyone here have any advice on Orlebar Brown sizing?

    This so-called autumn weather here in Melbourne has me thinking of shorts...we actually just needed a new pair at some point.

    Would appreciate any advice (on the shorts or anything else).

    Edit - thinking I will prob size up as I can use the side tab to bring the waist in.

    cheers guys. Should have thought of this first, searched the model number, found this. (horrible fit on that model re length, quarters etc....). Looks like it just has a weird buttoning point. I'll iron it out. It fits very nicely on me, very relaxed.
