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,

    Nice one Journeyman. We have found that bunch quite popular. Tailors well and clients love it as it travels well.

    It's got a really nice weight to it and hangs well, but also feels really light and breezy. I'm certainly a convert.

    Not scritchy? I've never really gone Fresco etc - I recall "that sort of thing" as scritchy stiff and see through? But I must admit I haven't felt the material for years.

    Insta definitely not silky but the offering from H&S is probably the softest handle of its kind. I think it's the perfect compromise. It almost wears as cool as linen without the creasing.
    we sell more fresco than anything else.

    Any time, dude. Just don't try explaining the SA political system back to me.

    The correct attitude.

    fxh - always trying to play the race card.

    Don't get me wrong; I'm not obsessed about colour matching; it's just that I don't have a belt that even remotely goes with my Santoni monks. They are a very red shade of burgundy whereas the British burgundy tends to brown, which I already have well covered. If I'm going to buy another belt this year, it makes sense to look for one like that.

    The Equus burgundy looks pretty good; I guess that wasn't in the swatches I got.

    CD - a bloke at Camberwell Market has a huge belt stall with millions of belts and will make one on the spot. Tends toward the thicker jean belt/buckles etc iirc but the leather is nice and I'm sure he could whip up something more refined. His prices are very low from memory.

    Mambo used to be so cool circa 90's. Surf brands have changed so much. Perusing through my Dad's old surf mags many brands were really very representative of a completely anti-establishment way of life. Now it has changed so much. Skate culture overtook surf culture in terms of this attitude, but it has succumbed now too. In Hawaii,California and Brazil there is still a strong vibe for this though in terms of surf/brazilian jiujitsu culture, but this too is withering in the face of fervent consumerism. It seems to all be heralded by the professionalisation of sports; once this happens, the (mainstream) culture surrounding them changes pretty drastically.

    This isn't a result of being in the ME I hope?

    Try a lighter canvas, lighter or no shoulder padding, open weaves and less lining.

    Come to PJohnson one day while it's scorching outside and try the various options on to see if you feel any difference.

    Btw happy new year to all!

    With a blazer or odd jacket its fine, but once you combine it with a pair of jeans or Uniqlo chinos you look like you had to grab a business shirt because you ran out of casuals.

    Not even like:

    It's kinda like its been left in a draw for a couple of years, not that I'm big on Uniqlo OCBDs.

    Still nowhere near as versatile as blue.

    Another way to do it is to match your belt to your jacket rather than your shoes, and tie it in to your outfit that way. E.g. navy belt, navy blazer, grey trews, burgundy shoes (burg tie or elements in PS optional).
