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.

    Try edmorel's clothing venture, Panta Clothing. I've got four of their bowties and they are excellent - very well made from lovely silk or cashmere.

    Do an Internet search for "The Cordial Churchman". They make MTO bowties to order - you can ask them to tailor the size of the bow to you liking. Quality of cloth is not as good as Panta but they are cheap and tie a nice bow.

    Also, whilst more expensive, Herringbone also sometimes have some decent bowties.

    Finally, look on eBay for RL Polo bow ties, as they are perfectly serviceable and they often have nice paisley or printed dot patterns.

    thetiebar.com bow ties are also fine in my experience. They have a huge range of different patterns, shapes and colours too.

    I would not buy their knit ties again though - too thing and got some pulled threads quite quickly.

    Yes and seems they have postponed the release for 6 months for some reason.

    My mate arrived back from Toulouse yesterday. With my "Bill Cunningham" jacket - Municipal Worker Jacket - from local hardware store = $20EU. Needs a few washes to fade and soften up.(oh and enough Saphir to polish a container load of Meerkat double monks)

    Today I got suckered into going to footy in suburbs. I sat in car and listened to Oklahoma on ABC FM Classical radio in sunshine.

    There are not really chunky.

    They are a bit thicker than the thinner dress socks, ribbed, used to be called walking socks, and they are OTC that have scrunched down.

    I have a bit of a fetish for wearing clean white OTC socks.

    When I was a kid I read that Jerry Lewis when he became rich used to wear a brand new pair of white socks (and sometimes other colours) every day then throw them away.

    It kinda stuck in my head as something to aim for.

    Took me an hour, but I caught up 220+ posts while I was away for a week on the South Coast of NSW.

    Someone 100 odd posts ago was speaking highly of RHD in Adelaide. +1.

    As for the PJ origin discussion, I thought that were perhaps made in the same place as Suit Supply. Suit Supply are from the Netherlands, and that's where PJ's stuff is purported to be made.

    Hey man, hope you had fun!

    Re-PJ Origins

    TBH, I don't really care where his stuff gets made; that's why I stayed out of that discussion. What's important to me is the fit and quality of the final product.

    On both, Pat has never disappointed.

    And FWIW, I have received more compliments than you could shake a bespoke seven-fold tie at since I started wearing his kit about a year ago. Especially from attractive women... :slayer:

    So who gives a flying hoot eh?

    I agree.

    And compliments are nice :)

    It's a bit delayed, but here's a shot from Friday (fxh, please avert your eyes!):

    [​IMG]

    The trousers are Nantucket reds (a sort of faded red or, as some colleagues call them, "salmon pink"). I was also wearing a light blue OCBD shirt, blue-brown bicolour knit tie, a navy, cotton, herringbone-weave jacket with patch pockets and a linen pocket square and carrying a Filson 256.

    Unfortunately, the colours are a bit dark in the photo - both the trousers and shoes are a bit lighter in colour.
