Personally I can't go in there unless I'm ready to buy a pair of shoes, because I know I simply won't be able to resist.

No, it's the guilt of having no intention to buy! Irrational, but there you go.

One time I think Chris went around the shop behind me and slightly repositioned every shoe I picked up and put back.

Not that they make you feel guilty, lovely chaps in there.

I thought he put every shoe you picked up straight into a fire and told you (loudly) the clap clinic was across the road?

Especially after Gerry stole that pair of Dovers.

Like JM I will venture forth into the world of Executive Style at my own peril it appears.

"Online makes shopping for accessories quick and now super affordable, so you all have no excuse," Birley challenges. "It's a great way to differentiate yourself from the (group) herd ."

I think that combined with the Wannabes who play on Saturday night makes me t think that I should just go outside and shoot myself now.

But a tad off. I don't work for a specialist menswear store. Some of the lads are old colleagues.


When has Bentspoke ever not been the place to be! Best place for fine brews and casual vibes in the city!

Do we have some other Canberra locals?

i moved to canberra last year, but am not really a follower of 'menswear' in the context of suits etc (more into casual japanese streetwear). i'm sure it'll disgust everyone, but i currently wear dr marten 1461s to work - sometimes even with a drake's tie!

That's the great (well, maybe not) think about the public service - you can dress pretty much how you like and in most cases, it won't affect your chances of advancement. 

 

I know someone who's now in the Senior Executive Service (SES) and until he was made an EL2, he used to wear battered, scuffed black Doc boots to work. Now he's changed to wearing RMW elastic-sided boots.

 

Another person, who's now an EL1 in IT, routinely wears shorts to work, which plainly display a rather large and badly-done tattoo of a musical instrument on his calf.

Ever wonder why Lowes do such good business in Canberra JM?

As for the quirks of SES I worked with a SES2 in DHS before the amalgamation who would front to interviews in just a shirt and trousers. When he had this drawn to his attention his reply was "I've never worn a suit and tie in my life and I'm not about to start now" And this character was in accounting.

Thought Coxsackie was in executive styles latest article about habits of well dressed men. Turns out it was a lookalike.
