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 like groupthink, it makes me feel more comfortable about my decisions.

    Often when I'm searching for a product I'll just buy whatever the best seller is.

    Individual discretion makes me uneasy, I like to let the market decide.

    Obscure leather jackets ripping the thread apart.

    Lots of hurt and angst. People questioning the meaning of their sartorial existence.

    Skinny people lashing out at other skinny people. Dads arguing.

    Great stuff! Keep it up, gents.

    Unless theres s good sale online that's pretty good pricing on the local Loakes. Always good to see more reasonably priced items in the local market thanks for the heads up.

    Wonder if Loake eased up on their contracts or the mob that has the local contract realised people compared prices online. I tried to enter into a supplier arrangement with Loakes a while ago and they wouldn't budge or sell bulk wholesale due to their contact with the local lot. AE refused to consider the same and (now) when they do the local lot they team up with charges nearly double the price zzzz.

    As for all leather jackets, brown, black, or any other colour, it all depends on the fit, which Oli said. This looks so dope, I wish I could get Dark Brown Whiskey Calf still.

    Drugs get us all in the end.

    I advocate not legalising illegal drugs.

    It depends on whether the jacket is bespoke or a variation of bespoke ~ MTM. They're both forms of bespoke, so I guess the jacket should be topied.

    It's quite interesting what you'll discover when you apply some basic logic.

    The real question is, should we spend $,$$$ on some PR person to change the word Bespoke to MTM, just because a few pedants have their knickers in a knot. I think not.

    In my case, that's still probably not worth it. :)
