Humans are complex creatures.

 

Some watch nerds subscribe to the notion, that, if faced with whether one should buy a nice car or watch:

Speaking of, anyone check out the John Olsen exhibition at Ian Potter yet? Had a walk through this morning at had a doodle on the activity sheet, loved the huge scale of some of the work.

Sadly it's the face which is too big @sliq, came on black leather too, definitely nice looking.

^Yeah, joke's getting a bit grating.

edit: Thanks for the Sri Lankan food recommendations, ended up to going to Araliya with a group of friends and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

So the last time I sold off my small business at next to nothing, I promised myself not to believe/ follow any sort of voodoo, gimmicks. That includes not reading daily horoscope (even for fun). Birth year watch/car/wine is possibly not gimmicks, but how can One relate to them ?

 

Hopefully, your financial position has improved, otherwise you really shouldn't be thinking of spending some thousands of dollars on a watch...

As far as I was aware, he was working as an accountant but, when reading a newspaper a couple of years ago, I saw his real name mentioned in an article about spotting fake luxury goods as he apparently holds himself out as an expert in identifying real or fake Louis Vuitton products. A quick search of his name brought up the Archie website... very peculiar.

Prince of Paisley that meme made me laugh out loud. When I was 30 and single back home I had an apartment in New Farm (nice part of Brisbane), which to be fair I still have, and drove a BMW. Now I'm 35 with a wife and child, earning less money working in London than I did in Australia, spending money on flights just to get to work each week from Zurich, and - most apt given your meme - we lease a Skoda (which are surprisingly popular here actually)! Life happens when you're busy making plans and I wouldn't want to swap back even though my current circumstances are challenging!

Thanks JM - my last failed business venture was about seven years ago & have been able to move to a better situation. I work hard and live a very humble life. And few years ago (before housing market went crazy)myself and mrs have been able to secure a house in Sydney's west and are enjoying humble life. I don't measure success in big bank balance(not anymore!) But rather see success as being able to be happy with what I have. To me this Rolex is a celebration of a significant high point in my life. Not money related but from happiness point .

What's the deal with Archie - is he unhinged, is it a persona, is he just a cashed up bogan? there's so much going on I don't understand.

Here's an interview that may or may not shed more light on him: http://www.wristtimes.com/blog-1/2014/6/4/wrist-time-profile-archie-luxury-the-beast-of-brisbane

he's a bit annoying and vulgar (I watch his channel despite NOT being a f*ckerooney(?)) but when he cuts to the chase, he has valid points.

Back to clothing- where to buy linen business shirts (slim fit and nice collars) ? Surprisingly MJB don't have linen shirts. Maximum budget $100.

Kamakura?

They sometimes have cotton linen blends.

That's over the $100 budget, though - USD99.

post #2999 of 3538
perhaps uniqlo? for the moment suitsupply don't have any linen woven shirts since they're heading into colder months.

I'm afraid to buy stuff based on my birth year
