I am shortly to hit Sydney City for some outdoor drinks at the Opera Bar which is an outdoor bar at the Sydney Opera house that overlooks the famous coat hangar bridge. The weather today has been cloudy but stifling humid and hot. As per the radar image it looks like I am out of luck as Sydney is about to be hit by rain from the West. Red spots are really bad. I know many of you will say take a rain coat or an umbrella and I can figure that myself but what does one wear...
Ive been too Vienna a few times while in transit and managed meals at random places. I was there once with my father and we stopped somewhere for Coffee and Cake (Tort). We found it was cheaper to order a 'Steinkrug' of Beer with our cake than a coffee. It was quite surreal sipping on beer and devouring cake.
I am looking for advice on the quality of fabric used in suites. I am after a light Wool in a plain Charcoal. I am focusing on this variable before I start thinking about cut and build quality. I am close to getting a MTM made and was doing the rounds of all the stores which are close to where I work to see if there might be something worthwhile OTR. Some of these stores claim that the fabric is English while one had no idea (but that's ok because it was a very cheap...

Perth, though, is a complete desert when it comes to fashion unfortunately. Everyone seems to wear surfer t-shirts and ill-fitting/ugly clothes....

I look at the inside collar of my shirt after 1 wear and usually find that it disgusts me so off it goes into my shirt wash bag.
I managed to watch the last 20 minutes of the Bond Flick 'You Only Live Twice' and I had the 'evil' thought after seeing Akiko Wakabayashi (Lead Bond Girl) whether Sean Connery would have done her off screen. Then I went the next step and thought was did Sean and Roger not only have a License to Kill but also too @$&&#@ on each film. I recall reading Adam West on the Batman TV series was adventurous. How much of this sort of stuff happens today on film sets and how much...
If you went from a size 9.5UK to a 10UK how much extra do you get? Is the half size increment mainly in the length or also a little in the width and girth?
Does anyone here have the C&J Lowndes and a say the Hallam, Westbourne or Edgware. I am interested what difference there is in fit between the Monk Shoe and the Oxford style on the same 348 last. I have the Lowndes in a UK 9.5 and was thinking of either the Hallamm Westbourne or Edgwear. Length wise I am ok however right foot a little tight (although has given a little). Would the oxford be more forgiving or should I bump up to a 10? I am worried that the 10 might give...
