Did anyone else happen to see Aus Member @thebrownman asking some hard questions about domestic violence on ABC's Q&A?   http://www.theage.com.au/entertainment/tv-and-radio/qa-recap-steve-prices-hysterical-insult-prompts-a-mic-drop-from-van-badham-20160711-gq3jco.html
An interesting, although slightly odd, article from the New Yorker that combines a biography-cum-interview with David Taub of Gieves and Hawkes, with an attempt to find a good made-to-order suit in India or Vietnam.    http://www.newyorker.com/business/currency/the-suit-that-couldnt-be-copied
 It's usually fine to use a deodorant, but not an anti-perspirant.  As others have said, it's the aluminium or the other sweat-blocking compounds in the anti-perspirant that really cause the yellowing in the armpits of shirts. 
A couple of articles from ABC Radio National about clothing and suits:   http://www.abc.net.au/radionational/programs/blueprintforliving/the-powerful-and-sometimes-subversive-history-of-the-suit/7570840   http://www.abc.net.au/radionational/programs/blueprintforliving/my-first-suit/6415096
^That looks fantastic, SG. 
 You can post your own pics, or you can post pics from a web address (such as internet hosting, Google pics or really any image with an image-related address).  When you want to post a pic in your post, click on the icon up above the box that you're typing in that looks like two small mountains with a sun (or moon) above it. It's up and to the right, next to the icon that looks like a strip of old-fashioned film (that's the icon that you use for linking to Youtube and...
 So your cranky, outspoken internet persona is just an act, then?
 Absolutely - although I suspect that you mean "pish posh"!  I do have one friend who works for a large, old law firm who was told by an elderly partner that one should never, ever wear brown shoes with a suit. Thankfully, my friend was wearing black shoes at the time.  Apart from that, though, I really think that 99% of places would be fine with you wearing dark brown or burgundy shoes to work.  If you turn up wearing mid-to-light brown double monks and an RAF blue suit,...
I like the swelled edges, but not the swelled head in the background.
 I certainly agree with the last paragraph. Some British people - still looking backwards and living on past glories - quite reasonably resented what they saw as rule by "faceless Euro bureaucrats" and voted accordingly.    Here's a celebratory article from the UK Telegraph: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2016/06/24/this-was-the-day-the-british-people-defied-their-jailers/ "What happens now? We drink. We be happy. We sing a song. Then we piece back the country and get on...
