Thought I'd share a 'pseudo-fit' pic showing off the new Drakes Silk Knit I got in the mail recently - this pic was taken at the Baxter Inn, which is a great lil' whisky bar in Sydney. Please ignore the jacket's sleeve length in that pic - my right arm is in the process of delivering liquid gold to my gullet, and as such, proportions look a little odd.   A friend told me that a white shirt with an odd jacket is not necessarily 'correct' and linked me to Manton's post...
  Yes, 'tis a Junghans - automatic maxbill w. date - just got it this morning, shipped from Germany. Absolutely love it.
  Lovely; here's my daily carry (in the spirit of your post):  
  You can get Loake/Herring/etc shoes shipped to Australia for a lot cheaper than retail prices from various companies. Best I've dealt with is herringshoes.co.uk and Pediwear. Herring has best shipping prices and timings - and absolutely awesome customer service. You can get Loake Classics for about 160 dollars shipped.    I wear brown shoes with my navy suits - here people are super-laidback about suiting up in any case, you can get away with quite a bit (not that dark...
  This particularly parcel was 3 cedar shoe trees - no shoes this time! That said, I've got my eyes on a couple boots and a loafer to round out my collection a little, as I don't really have anything for more casual wear (with jeans and the like).    However, in other (more positive news), the Rubinacci and Drakes silk knit ties arrived today from Exquisite Trimmings. Very impressed with both, can't wait to wear 'em with my suits.
Man Australia Post is the pits, it really is.   Delivery from HerringShoes via DHL Express (usually outstanding service), however this time they outsource to AusPost for the last leg of delivery for some reason. Anyway, driver comes at 11.47am whilst I was home waiting 3 meters from the door but just drops card in mailbox and drives off. Card turns out to be most illegible, confusing 'left card' ever, with two different post offices written on it from which to...
  Thanks for the info, very useful! Will check out the Carmina Cordovan options when I get the chance.
^ Phwoar! Those are some nice lookin' shoes. Not everyone can pull 'em off though.
Was just boot 'window-shopping' online, thinking of footwear to go with a pair of jeans and came across these on Herring's website:   (http://www.herringshoes.co.uk/product-info.php?&brandid=7&shoeid=6466)     Was also looking at this (http://www.herringshoes.co.uk/product-info.php?&brandid=6&shoeid=2867):       And this (http://www.herringshoes.co.uk/product-info.php?&brandid=6&shoeid=3002)   Some nice looking boots. Also heard a lot of...
C'mon gents, can't we all just get along    Edit: those beers in the emoticon prompted me to ask, is there a Sydney meet-up? I know you Melbourne lot seem to have an occasional catch up, how 'bout one in the city some time in Sydney?
