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.

    Thanks for the tip. Disappointing that all the over the calf stripey ones are artificial mixes. Silk dress socks good value in the sale though.

    Anyone else have a favourite site where I can get striped long socks in wool or cotton? Preferably not the $60-a-pair excesses of certain members here, but open to suggestions!

    Not just you; I have a Thursday-Friday weekend. It's "cap toe Sunday" for me too. Nice chalk stripe, by the way.

    A fine selection indeed. Alas they have long, and they have stripey. But they don't have longandstripey!

    Rather old Loake's "Business" oxford (bought late 90s if I remember correctly). Still clean up nice as a straight formal work shoe.

    Mr Kapur: fierce chukka!

    So many of you working on a Sunday. I'm impressed and a little more motivated. Might fire up the laptop.

    Namor, I wouldn't recommend it if it's normally your weekend. Enjoy your Sunday, smell the roses, etc.!

    Quite right Mr Hampton.
