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,

    Gents,

    Today's outfit is a little flashy - details below:

    - Herringbone light brown PoW check with blue overcheck on the Milano block;
    - Borrelli shirt;
    - Holliday & Brown tie;
    - Old silk pocket square from somewhere in Italy;
    - Balmoral boots by Cheaney (I think) for Paul Stuart in the US.

    As an aside, the "Milano" block was an excellent block - cut slightly more generously in the shoulders as the Osaka block, with slightly more padding. This particular suit was beautifully made, too. Unfortunately, Herringbone rationalised their suit blocks shortly afterwards and cut out the Milano and London blocks, leaving only the Osaka and New York blocks. I think that they may even have got rid of the latter now, leaving only the Osaka block (although I could be wrong on that point).

    Well they only cost me $120 a pop, have a tough functional life and are expected to lose function potentially long before they 'wear out' aesthetically :) Good to know that Tod's last decently though.

    I'd disagree. I have 2 pairs of Tod's, and I have worn them both down to the rubber piece underlying the nubs remarkably quick.

    At the prices of your shoes however, I'd be happy to buy them, even with the expectation that the sole won't last a long time.

    Guys! Looking to get some new shoes for work, I suit up every day. I have a navy suit and a grey suit.

    Looking to spend $200-300 here. Would like both black and brown - but don't have the $$ right now as I had a BIG spending few weeks.
    Thus, which would be the better pick colour wise, and also the shoe too?

    Any ideas/suggestions are hugely appreciated :)

    EDIT: embarrassing - seems this was asked literally 4-5 pages ago. I'm just not sold on the wingtips.

    We literally just covered this. Do a search or read the past few pages and there should be plenty of useful information. Hope that helps.

    If you guys could go back in time, with all your years of experience, to when you got your first serious job, where would you buy your first suit?

    Knowing that you aren't super rich (you haven't even started your first job), but you have years of SF experience and knowledge on what looks good and what doesn't what would you do?

    The Salvation Army. Or, if I'm confident I'd get/keep the job, I'd choose the Goodwill. ;)

    I don't know; I was being facetious. I was somewhat poking the popularity of the thrift-store chat (such places are where the SF 1337 hang out).

    thanks mate and thanks to all the pre-orders. Sorry for those that missed out on sizing (Ill note that most of you guys are size 44 lol). Those that have already paid will have them sent in the morning.

    They are now live on our site. I will share the plain colours etc later in the week.

    Cheers
    Rob

    I saw at the RL warehouse store at Homebush there was a huge amount of RL Denim and Supply product. There was also common sized Polo suits (38, 40, 42) and quite a few Purple Label pants. All 70% off


    Probably Herringbone depending on your body type.
