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.

    Has anyone noticed just how similar Al Grassby and Sol Trujillo (ex-CEO of Telstra) look? The resemblance is uncanny!

    (I was, unfortunately, unable to find a picture of Sol wearing a sombrero.)

    Both of them look uncannily like PoP! But more trustworthy.

    CD - re chinos - I'm well stocked up with old skool LE. I think their range in the last few years has a smaller rise.

    I understand the Luxire - trial fit cheapies are a good way to go for chinos. MTM for the price of OTR. Not sure if proper khaki is available.

    Locally Gazman can be more than OK for chinos, shirts and jackets very reasonable prices. . Check out their factory outlet in Tooronga Road - pretty cheap - it has a small selection of their normal lines too.

    If price isn't an issue then look at O'Connells and Bills and LL Bean for decent material and rise.

    Has anyone had a look at Aquila stuff in real life lately? They certainly gone real premium in the price category ($499!!!!). Wonder if they actually upped their game in terms of quality.

    I love how in the news they were described as suffering minor injuries from being non compliant in arrest.

    I reckon the cops would have given those 2 blokes the flogging of their lives, which you've realistically got coming to you if the shoot at the police.

    Yes, I saw that mentioned on Facebook earlier. Some good deals available - 30% off MJ Bale and 40% off Herringbone and R&B until (I think) 12pm tonight.

    Just picked up my MJ Bale Sturt dinner suit and Paul Smith bow tie. Less than $190 for both including pants hemmed and I get to keep the nice MJ Bale shop hanger. I think that'll be my last suit until I get fat from aging or they start falling apart. Might get a DB jacket, but @ 10 suits I think I better stop.

    I feel much the same with 3 suits. Will move to M2M in my 30s if my salary increases enough.

    MJ Bale have one, although I'm not such a fan of the knit, as I prefer a crunchy knit over this style of knit, but that's a subjective choice:

    http://www.mjbale.com/ties/2-ties-f...026W15.html?dwvar_TIE026W15_color=Nvy#start=1

    I was going to recommend Henry Carter's knit ties, as the Sozzi knits that he carries are very nice, but he's all sold out in navy.

    A rook is a chess piece and a crow is what I indulge in when I take my opponent's rook.
