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,

    I am pretty sure it is normal. On the rain last, I think the 1.5x may be a bit too much.

    I wouldn't know. NMWA doesn't carry a large enough size for me. [​IMG]

    To be honest, if they had the brown suede U last in my size, I would have went with those. It is a good looking last.

    Flip-flops are heinous. An abomination. They even suck for their intended application at the beach.

    Wrinkly linen is too casual for my office. I'd have to get heavy linen shirting, and then you might as well get cotton.

    If you want to ruin your feet and ankles, wear slides all summer and walk around in public.

    Ah. You smoke with your feet.

    Is this because you have no feet, or because you have no brain?

    The dye from my climbing shoes stain them yellow.

    The GNAT Report
    Inaugural Trans-Tasman Power Summit and Executive Measure-Up

    Featuring: @jfrater , @Coxsackie and @incontro

    jfrater jetted in to Sydney this morning in his Brioni twelve-seater (one of three he recently thrifted on the Bay) and was motorcaded straight to Bijan's atelier for his appointment with Incontro, Fitter To the Stars. Your intrepid GNAT Reporter was on hand to capture all the action in this set of relaxed and intimate images, world-exclusive to TGR.

    Fabric selection -

    The measure-up commences -

    ...and continues -

    Narrow-focus "art" snap inserted as gratuitous filler -

    Master Fitter and happy client -

    I love getting my photo taken standing next to celebs -

    I was talked out of donegal (perhaps not ideal for the Australian climate, unless you live in Ballarat) and instead steered towards a medium-weight POW with blue overcheck -

    From this august fabric house -

    The actual commissions are very much on the QT, very hush-hush. However I can confirm that my own project was inspired by this image -

    Remember: you heard it first...on The GNAT Report!

    I wear flips when I take the kiddos to the beach on the weekends, which is most weekends as weather nearly always permits and the journey involves nothing more than taking the lift to the ground floor of the building. So I suppose I wear them quite frequently. That said, I don't think they look great and don't wear them otherwise, they're just practical for that limited purpose. Also, I lean towards something more basic like Havaianas - all-terrain looking flip flops like Tevos or the ones you linked to I'm afraid I really don't like.
