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.

    Which John Zorn? Naked City? Painkiller? Masada? The Dreamers?

    Where would you recomend a start with Henri Dutilleux?

    I just checked then and there was definitely belts, ties and some of the knitwear still in stock. I think a lot of the socks are sold out though, yes.

    I saw John Zorn live at the Bergisch Gladbach Music Festival in 1989 and really liked him. He was playing with a bunch of other New York avant-garde jazzmen at that gig. I can't remember all their names now. I realise Zorn uses a wide range of musical styles in his output; I can't really name albums.

    For Henri Dutilleux I can very strongly recommend the Cello Concerto, also called "Toute un monde lointain", which is extraordinarily beautiful, mystical and terrifying in equal measure.

    Yeah pity re; the knitwear, some of those cardigans are jumpers are great. Don't have a lot of need for belts, but cheers for the heads up. More bemoaning what damage could have been done to the old CC.

    The brown shawl neck Aran looked good for $130, though they didn't have my size. As did the navy cashmere cardi but again no stock.

    Oh, and it's 28C in Sydney tomorrow, three days out from "winter".

    I have a berg&berg belt, the quality is ok for the price but I wouldn't say top notch (small belt pun there for fxh, Ernesto etc.)

    I bought the camel and green cashmere sweater from B&B when they were on their end of season sale. Its baby soft, and fits ever slightly on the smaller side. Haven't even washed it yet.

    The scarves in the B&B outlet seem like a good price shame most everything else is sold out

    I got my Navy Mac from Luxire today, it's perfect. Wore it out to dinner with my Grandparents. Shirt fit isn't the best, I need to get OH to make me up some new OCBDs.

    Can you post few better pictures of the mac? In daylight. Looks pretty good. Why don't you get OCBDs from Luxire? Their shirts are excellent....

    Heard the Harrold's outlet at Crown is having a sale; can anyone speak about the stock?

    I've bought a lot of stuff from there in the past, but you have to be ready for disappointment. Often you spot something insanely desirable, only to discover that it's not available in your size.

    Not bad for odd jackets and trousers; many ties, most of which are hideous; virtually no shirts; the occasional nice suit. Plenty of Brioni, Tom Ford, Pal Zileri, Caruso, but like I said, rarely does any of it fit.

    Yeah, they're not going to dress Royalty I'll give you that. But I've picked up a few of their button-down slim-fits in their Factory outlets over time for about $25 each - and they more than do the job at that proce. Lightweight, casual shirts that you can throw on for a summer's day. Nothing wrong with them imo.

    I know slim trousers are popular around here, but I feel like your trouser-width-to-shoe-size ratio is off (this important ratio needs a name, any takers?). As in, your feet are on the larger side, and your trousers are very slim, and so you're in danger of entering 'clown foot' territory. I'm a very skinny dude with size 10 feet, so this is something I've learnt to watch out for myself via painful introspection.

    +1 definitely nice gear but all in ridiculously big, or odd sizes. Pants with a 54 suit that are drop 10, etc

    SA's are very nice on the eye, and always worth having a quick browse at before gorging one's self at Rockpool or Spice Temple.

    Couldn't agree more. He dresses really well, but I've thought that same thing about a few of his pics.

    Yeah I will do, I have this one here, just in a tee, I'll get some more tomorrow.

    As for the shirts, I don't go luxire as I have no idea what the perfect fitting shirt for me would measure, and I would like to support Oscar Hunt.
