I'd get a roof for your office first. Then you won't need the rubber-soled shoes.

My theory is that you know you've really made it as a designer when your product starts turning up in the op shops. That means you have penetrated the entire supply chain.

These are size 7. Happy to let them go, if anybody wants them.



Speaking of op shops, today I also found a Huntsman suit. I picked it up because I think it could be made to work for me, but I have a little doubt. The label says Huntsman, not H. Hunstman. Is there a difference? I also think the inside label is interesting.

Last night I received a nice big parcel in the mail - my new MTM peacoat from Hermen. I wore it when out and about today in cold, drizzly Melbourne, and i was warm as toast the whole time. Here's some pictures.

^ nice. Too nice for jeans- I would swap them for a pair chinos.

What's that fabric, CD? It looks like it has an interesting, small-scale pattern. 

 

Also, what's the colour? Is that a sort of olive green, rather than blue, or is it just the computer affecting the colour perception?

I'd describe it as a blue-gray wool, with a diamond pattern. Here's a better photo of it, in daylight.

in particular reason why you didn't go with a peak lapel CD?

Sunday; Mrs GF "well at least the cars clean" Early dinner at Bennelong then the most amazing mix of music, lights and video for two hours solid of New Order. Outstanding!

Picked up a Argyle BB lambswool vest at Viinnies which is Made in England. Glad to see irony is alive and wel in Bronte amid the storm carnage.

Just got a pair of Herring Keswicks for rainy Melbourne days in the mail:

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 90

If anyone is interested, happy to review them--just PM me.

In other matters, does anyone have an Aerobie AeroPress? Any opinions as to whether they are worthwhile over, I dunno, instant? I'd like to stop buying my afternoon coffee at work; thought this might be a reasonable alternative?

Aeropress is worthwhile but a)produces a different drink to both instant and espresso-based coffee, b) requires some practice and trial and error to produce good results.

 

There are plenty of tutorials/videos online to help you through b). As for a) it's closer in taste to cold-press with an emphasis on the fruiter top notes over the richer, deeper nutty/chocolate notes

@tobiasj:

 

Having also used the Aeropress myself, I concur 100% with @sebastian mcfox

 

If I can add another piece of advice, if you want to extract more of the richer flavours, opt for a grind that is as fine as possible.

 

A bonus is that it's the most non-fuss way to approach real coffee I've come across, and clean-up ready for the next cup is a breeze. Ideal for a quick fix at work indeed.

i have an aeropress + porlex mini too, but i'm way too lazy/forgetful to regularly buy fresh beans. this, plus the fact that i don't like overly fruity notes (aka not a fan of many third wave roasters) and found it incredibly difficult to consistently make a good brew means it's probably not the product for me. super fast cleanup, though.
