1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Welcome to SF!

    For good suits on sale at approx $400, try MJ Bale or Herringbone. If you're in VIC, check with the Melbournians on this thread; they know where to go for excellent deals (I see Azzaro mentioned a lot...)

    Really? I haven't had a chance to have a look through yet, I did see the email about it though.

    Spent my Sunday arvo photographing samples that came and a lot of the night getting these babies all ready for despatch tomorrow....

    Hello again gents,
    Just thought that I would post the alteration results of the sack suit that I came here asking for advice on some time ago (for those who remember).
    I'm fairly happy with the overall results!

    It may just be the angle of the picture . But the jacket looks a bit too long imho.

    Agree that they do use some nice fabrics and that they have a classic cut in the Jacket, but, the trousers are the worst fitting suit trousers in my wardrobe. There is seriously something wrong with the cut specific to the belt band and front fly construction - basically its rubbish. I have talked with the people at DJs, they all just nodded and looked blankly at me like I was from another planet. If anyone in the market for Durban, make sure you are happy with the trouser fit.

    So I ordered a pair of charcoal odd trousers over the weekend, but now I'm having buyer's remorse due to the colour--I'm wondering if charcoal is really too dark to work as an odd trouser and whether I should ask to change them for something else.

    Any thoughts?

    I've got a couple of pairs in reasonably dark greys, and I think it works fine, so long as you can make it look far enough away from black to justify bothering with it. Are they just a solid colour, or do you have any sort of a pattern in the fabric?

    Agree with the above. As long as they aren't easily mistaken for black it should be fine. Pair them with a crisp, arctic white shirt and you'll be fine I reckon.

    +2 for the charcoal trousers, aslong as they are not too dark they match very well. I love wearing my howard yount charcoal pants with my brown herring oxfords to work.
