    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.

    Naka does that mean I can count you in my numbers as interested?
    I like those derbies but already have them in burgundy calf so would definitely go the loafer when the time comes, maybe in a few months time when winter is nearing a close.

    Thanks Gerry.I really like those links too - you can't see in the photo, but they are double-sided. The socks are Nagrani. I'd describe the suit fabric as a charcoal POW with a mint overcheck. It's Super 150s wool.

    Umm I was wondering if someone can help me with this altering possibility...

    I've lost a lot of weight over the past few months and some of my favourite plaid ralph lauren OCBDs don't fit as close as they used to anymore...how much can be done to save them? They're a size M but I now fit a size S quite well....

    ^^Do your shoulders still fit the shirt more or less? If so, you can just have the shirt taken in from the sides. Very simple alteration.

    Thanks blahman. I willl check it out but it's generally pretty tough going finding something in a 36 at most sales. Fingers crossed.

    Possible SF member sighting today at Collins Place. Grey pants, navy blazer, blue shirt, navy with white pindot knitted tie, pocket square. Very simple, but very well done. Think I have seen this guy before in sharp garb.

    Not sure on the brack coat, contrast seems a bit harsh no?

    Black coats not being styleforum approved seems to be the bigger issue to me...

    I assume that the coat is brack/black because the wombat is wearing a formal tailcoat, with a top hat and cane.

    8cm is too narrow for me, too. I would be interested were the tie to be wider, at least 9cm or even 9.5.

    My much-loved Bobby Jones D-ring belt is now just ridiculously big on me, so I decided to get another, slightly more dressy, fabric belt.

    I found this Anderson belt online at Number 6 London. $75 shipped, and shipping took about 8 days from the UK.

    Guys I will send off an email to check but as they are a MTO run, I don't see why we can't do them at custom widths for those of you wanting them wider. 8th is just my standard width, which seems to work well for a large number of people being not too narrow and not to wide for most. Will prob have an answer mon or tues.

    Yes but you can wear grey morning coats.

    Eta:

    Jason did you ever get a weight on the silk?

    Thanks for look at the width option, thankfully despite my height I actually wear a normal length.

    I actually like the golden wombat to the point where my preference would be to have it placed on the front blade to the right, positioned a-la Brooks Bros, but that could be just me...

    I wouldn't wear a green tie, so I won't poke my nose in.

    I would just remind others that someday you may have to explain to your grandchildren, what the wombat was about and just who someone called blahman was!

    Not to mention that every time you wear the tie - you think of The blahsta

    Checky - on a side note - as you approach Richmond Station from the Mystic East, you can look to your right and somewhere between Dimmeys and the station itself one of the factory back walls has, in bas-relief, the image, much like, if not actually the same, of the sheep in a sling. Like the BB logo. I wonder which came first.

    Noticed that while on the train the other day and thought the same thing. Need to jump off at Richmond one day and take a photo.

    Will throw my hat in the ring for a tie, wombat or wattle doesn't bother if they're on the back, but must be 9cm

    I think its also on some woolstores around the traps at Geelong and B'Rat. (the lamb in sling not the wombat)



    Almost a mixed metaphor

    Jason: if widths can be adjusted, does that mean length can be adjusted too? Standard 59" length ties tend to be bit long for me.
