Happy Fathers Day

Would have been nice if I wasnt woken up by son at 6.30 am on his way to Leichhardt Oval for the footy, but there you go.

A MTM Linen jacket is on the agenda for summer. With a wardrobe of predoninately navy, grey and khaki wondering what would be the best colour to go with.

I've already cooked one of them - traditional Cotechino con Lenticchie - and the other one is waiting in the fridge.



 



Traditionally it's eaten at Xmas, but given that it's very much a hearty winter dish, I decided not to wait.



 



Thanks everyone for the smallgoods grocery tips.


 



Hey Coxsackie,

Just got back from OS and catching up on the forum goss. Bit late in the game but there's also another option for you: http://www.saltmeatscheese.com.au/

They've got stores in Bondi Junction, Broadway, Mosman etc. and also do regular events in their kitchen in Alexandria.

Alternatively I used to know an Italian wholesaler who specialised in processed smallgoods, sausages etc.
I'll find his card and PM you the details. You can get the fillings / sausages from him direct and fresh!

Happy Fathers day!

Happy Fathers Day!

I feel your pain GF. Had a 0640 wake up from my 2.5 year old.

Part of the joy of being a parent eh!

Hope you had a nice day.

Certainly if you are over 50 - don't wear sneakers.

Too late; I bought the navy Supergas.

I don't agree that there is some age-related rule regarding what you can put on your feet. What matters is comfort, whether it looks right with the rest of your outfit and is appropriate for what you're doing. My only real alternative beach footwear would be thongs, so these are fine.

If you're talking about the kind of Raf Simons monstrosities stocked at Sneakerboy then yes, I'd look like an idiot wearing them, but there's nothing wrong with some discreet and comfortable beater shoes at a low price.

I bought my old man some asics kayanos. my dad tells me that's best for his feet as it absorbs the pressure on the ankle, considering he's got osteoarthritis. and I love the fact he rocks them with dad jeans. the best.

Those Reeboks are dope, 'dex.

 

I used to have four pairs of high end sneakers, 3 CP's and a pair of MMM GATs. I sold them all. I actually told @Gerry Nelson and @Pink Socks this story a few weeks ago.

 

It was a warm summers night on Christmas, and my niece asked me to play Football with her. I was wearing linen trousers, a navy polo, and white CPs. The last thing I wanted to do was kick and old dirty piece of rubber around in my CPs, and it dawned on me that I was as consious as protecting them as I was any other pair of leather dress shoes. For me, sneakers are about throwing them on, beating them around, they're not dress shoes, so I don't see the point of spending the money on high end pairs any more.

Fox, you do make a good point.

 

On the other hand, given that it was a warm summer's night, you could always just have taken off your shoes and kicked the footy around barefoot!

Kayanos are a running/athletic shoe, they're not a 'sneaker' in the same sense as a pair of chucks, vans, CPs etc.

Dad jeans and sneakers are cool these days aren't they?

Ta.

 

Totally agree with you regarding sneakers. You should take care of them but not to the point where you can't kick a ball lol
