Are there any independent financial advisors in Sydney that come recommended by anyone here?

Beautiful Autumn day in Canberra, but BOM predicts the heat to return by Friday.

Thanks to @Pink Socks I managed to make a financially sustainable, long overdue, upgrade on my wallet. Chain stitching had actually gone a filthy colour, so was relieved to pick up the Kimber suit wallet at a decent price. 

 

The Eidos sneakers look mighty tempting with the discount though. Wonder how fast they'll go when the promo code becomes public knowledge.

SE - the wallets are brilliant. Love mine. Burgundy or green?

Green for me. Glory Glory to the Hibees

Olive green - attempting to compensate for the lack of green repp stripes in my tie rotation :slayer:

They both look good.

leaning towards the burgundy one myself. Olive green might be less showy but the burgundy goes with so many of my shoes.

NM, I prefer the double-tube trees with the spring-loaded piece on the side of the toe. Not only do I think that they fill out the shoes more, but the piece that fits into the heel also tends to be more rounded and so it doesn't press against the inside of the heels of the shoes as much.

 

Of course, I'm probably over-thinking things, but I'm sure that's not the first time that's happened in this thread!

How do you get those woodlore in Aus? Peter of Kensington doesn't have it.

Amazon.

 

Alternatively, there are cobblers in the CBD that have pretty much the same thing, just not Woodlore-branded.  About $50.

Its manufacture, individual ownership, where it was repaired how many times it was exchanged. The provenance speaks volumes about an object and its inscription tells the tale of its circulation as both a commodity with a monetary value and item of cultural exchange.

Maybe, but if I was paying serious coin I'd want to get a new watch. Now someone can give me or bequest me an old watch. Old watches might require serious servicing.

A classic car is classic because it looks old, regardless of whether it has patina; and if it has rust, well...

Hi all,

 

Sydney based lurker newbie to the forum joining in on the fun.
 

Re the shoe trees, Double Monk in The Strand had these from two different brands.  One was fairly expensive (don't remember the amount) but the other was around the $59 mark.

I think Coombs (ground floor in The Strand) also stocks these.

Hey Australian Members,

Has anyone here got a sub on the old style bracelet, and had it for a decent amount of time?

I am trying to decide between getting an older model 16610 or a new Sub C. I actually prefer the look of the older models, but I am torn because of the problem of 'bracelet stretch', which has been fixed on the bracelet of newer models. I would appreciate the input of anyone willing to give it.

I thought this might be a better place to ask than a watch related thread. Since it is a problem that arises through wear and tear, it will be different under Australian conditions. Plus you guys are much cooler.

Do the bracelets actually stretch significantly due to sweat etc. getting inside the links? Is this something that has happened to your sub, and if so, is it something that happened relatively quickly or over decades? Do you push papers from behind a desk (like I will be doing), or did you wear it for more physical things?

Cheers
