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.

    Oi I used to eat at Yim Yams quite often. Decent Laos/Thai food.
    And for $200, why not just jump on the Meermin bandwagon?

    fritzl - you lost again?

    Turn right at Vienna perhaps not left?

    What size are you?

    The Florsheims I know of are more 70s and later but still V cleat - many in good nick, but not spruced up.

    Postage is a bit of a killer. $70aud to EU I think - others here will know.

    That Sevan Minasian, Classic Shoes might work out better for you - hes in EU isn't he?

    Have you dealt with him?

    blah - if maplefuturist is mainly street /casual he wont get much use out of "dress" shoes.

    I dunno - does these meerkats come in suitable brogues that will work with street/casual?

    no, not lost. i'm just debating the first glas wine with me... ...hence i need easy entertainment.

    turn right at Vienna leads you to burgenland. the idiots of our country. they start breakfast with wine, you know what i mean... :D

    i'm size EU 44/UK 10/US 11. this is not scientific, though. we talk then. v-cleat is a must.

    a fellow member quoted AUD 90 yesterday. how much is this again in real world's money?

    yes, i have dealt with Dr. Minasian. he's a nice guy. i would love to be his successor. he has amazing stuff. no doubt.

    i'm always happy to communicate with the world.

    yeahbut..

    Not all interviews are with banks, law firms and such.

    Most places, any pair of shoes that aren't scuffed and dirty will look smarter than 70% of people.

    Shoes that fit, are leather and clean will look better than 99%.

    You think anyone outside here cares or even knows what a plain captoe is?

    Just got my Owen & James white shirt!

    The fit is AWESOME! Ahhh man it fits better than any other RTW shirt I have at the moment.

    You guys need more basic colours!

    Big ups to Rob for all the help with the sizing!

    we were having a laugh at work the other day because I was wearing the same suit and tie that I have on in the photo on my ID badge.... I started there in March '05. I'm not sure if it's a good thing or not :D

    Florsheim cedar shoe trees arrived today. First time I've ever owned some... or possibly known anyone that's owned some. What's the world coming to?

    I'll be buying a badger hair brush and straight razor soon, and wearing moleskin pants.

    Hey glad to hear it fits well! Currently reviewing an order for spring/summer. Thinking a plain pale blue, a blue/white thin stripe, and then some new stuff we saw in pitti :)

    Sorry Blah. I've tried a bit in RUI and Hiro lasts. Width wise they are the same, but RUI has more height in the toebox, if that makes sense. I think most people are taking the same size, or half a size up from their standard size in UK shoes.

    Stay away from those straight blade and even DE razors mate, unless you've got an hour and a half to have a shave every morning. A good badger brush and soap (I like Crabtree & Evelyn) will do wonders and a modernish razor with as little blades as possible works best for me. I use the good old Gillette sensor excel (2 blades). Not even an ape needs 5 blades to shave their face.
