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,

    thrift; that'll save you plenty of money.

    i went out to dinner with some good friends on friday and they were blown away by my thrift fit. everything except for my underwear and socks was thrifted, i.e. suit, shirt, tie and shoes. didn't cost me more than $48 altogether, and it looked like $700+ outfit.

    Well I'm looking for something that can be dressed up and dressed down, like I'm thinking of getting a pair of rm Williams and wear a ton of denim and chinos. If I can find a cheaper alternative to rm Williams I'm open to that too. I was thinking of getting a peacoat, but it
    Is starting to feel like everyone is wearing it. Where are good places to thrift? I'm new to this
    Thrifting thing but I'm totally open to it since it seems pretty
    Cool.

    Do they have DFO in Sydney?

    You might pick up some stuff there.

    RM Williams, some patterned/striped shirts, merino knits, denim/chinos, and some funky knit ties. Sorted.

    I re-watched Dirty Rotten Scoundrels over the weekend. Great 80s comedy and notable for its 'period' menswear (the gorges literally could not go any lower).

    I thought this line was particularly relevant to SF:

    "Fortunately, I discovered that taste and style are commodities...that people desire."

    There is something probably Freudian about it, but all those giant dimples on the HC members ties are starting to look like other things...

    Too small for me, but out of interest what went wrong with the sizing? Did you go with your normal UK shoe sizing?
