    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.

    As I'm on a 2 year clothing ban shopaholic!

    Yesterday I went to local antiques and bought a nice ring (the one in the middle)-

    Following @jrd617 and @dieworkwear's lead. Xpost from the shine kit thread. These Gerstner chests really are fantastic. Good time to kop while they are still on sale: http://gerstnerusa.com/opencart/index.php?route=product/category&path=83

    Thnx Snoopy!

    But 26 days into my self imposed new clothing ban for 2 years so that I can wear out some things and already it's hard...

    Just have a couple of bespoke jeans being shipped to me, ordered 3rd May 2014, now I have to go until 3rd May 2016 without clothes - seems impossible, but I am buying Lobb bespoke alligator boots next year to make up for not buying clothes:)

    ^ Sorry to hear that. Hope you've got some good nutritional food supplement to keep up the energy levels.


    I just placed an order for these. Not sure about the fit, but I "need" (i.e. want) some more cotton SC:s, so I took a chance anyway.

    Yup, Yoox. Got them for a steal. No brands I have ever heard of, I just went with the overall look of them. Don't really want to spend a lot of money on cotton jackets, so I'm a happy camper. PM sent with details.

    Jackets look cool, EFV. Interested to see how they turn out (and what the length is like).

    Got this cotton Drake's square as part of the Barney's sale (link):
