    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.

    Just received my white chinos from ModernTailor. Nice soft cotton, good fit. However I can't help but thinking I should be umpiring a game of cricket while wearing them.

    Yeah 40-45eur for the mens. Our collaboration pair is camo pattern suede which might be too funky but there are a bunch of "normal" colours too. I love these shoes so much I may ask to do a style-forum one off pair too
    thanks - i cant wait to show them!

    Can't wait to see (and then buy [​IMG])your loafers Romp!

    I'm in the process of upgrading my business wardrobe - an area that needs particular, urgent, attention are my shoes. I previously had to pairs of Loakes which i abused and are in terrible shape. However, making the most of a bad situation I've decided to go for an upgrade. I've just ordered a pair of C&J Lowndes and a pair of C&J Hallam's (both in black).
    Any suggestions for a third shoe for work? Budget is something up to A$450. Did want the Carmina Simpson Loafers but they are out in my size and not sure it's the ideal 3rd shoe choice just yet.

    Have also decided on upgrading my bag - have my eyes set on http://www.ettinger.co.uk/collectio...ase/pursuits-olive-havana-wimbledon-briefcase Thoughts or alternatives?

    Cheers

    The Hunt (full brogue) is also quite nice

    Sydney definitely needs better footwear. I needed to have my Aldens shipped from the US or have some of my friends who visit there purchase for me.

    I suppose that it depends at least partially on the particular last used, but I take a UK9 in C&J on the 348 and 337 lasts and my Alfred Sargent for Peal & Co/Brooks Brothers are a UK9/US10.

    To get an idea of the shape, you can see pics of them in my post here.

    That's a nice-looking bag, but certainly not cheap (despite the good exchange rate at present)!

    If you like the idea of having a cloth/leather combination, Filson is the classic choice (although arguably a little more casual than the Ettinger). Filson's 256 and 257 briefcases come in tan, olive and brown colourways. I've got a tan 256 and love it. Despite having a few other bags, including a couple by Swaine Adeney Brigg, the Filson gets the most use.

    Also, have you thought about Billykirk as an option? Have a look on the Billykirk website here, or for a "Billykirk for J.Crew" option, see here.

    This leather bag from J.Crew looks quite nice, too.

    Still on the all leather idea, what about RO Bags? They're carried by The Armoury in HK, amongst other places - you can see their differing sizes here, here and here.

    I hope that gives you a few other ideas to mull over!

    Dropped into Bonaparte's boutique on the way to the airport today. My first time there, a nice little store. I grabbed an unstructured cotton jacked for a fair price. They're doing some sleeve and shoulder alterations (free) which is nice.

    Will have more time for a better look through the store when I pick it up.

    (Loving the inflight wifi !)

    Odd question but... Plain t shirts, especially white, anyone got a good source?

    I've decided it's high time to retire my collection of Bonds tees and... wow have their prices gone up since I last purchased.

    Just after something crew neck, reasonably trim fitting in the body and waist & good quality.

    I kinda like the blue jeans white t shirt look for summer weekends :satisfied:

    What are the soles like? I could easily run through the soles on a pair of Tods in a month if I didn't have a big rotation. Lucky for me I found some great alternatives from Lacoste and other less costly brands but I'm really keen to find drivers with solid soles.
